  1. Insight blew the coolant, again.....

    Honda Insight Forum 1st-Gen Discussion
    A worn engine won't put bubbles in the cooling system. My bet is still on the head/gasket. :-( Sam

    Thanks, Jim. You beat me to it. Did you ever pressure test the cooling system? Sam
  3. Homeless Acid Bath!!!

    Honda Insight Lounge
    Yes, it really is. Too bad you went through there at the wrong time. Stuff like this stinks. Sam
  4. Insight blew the coolant, again.....

    Honda Insight Forum 1st-Gen Discussion
    I'm pretty convinced it's an air bubble caused by a warped head, or otherwise leaking head gasket. 1. You didn't have the head properly checked by a machine shop before you reinstalled it. 2. I'm not convinced that you properly burped the coolant at first, causing overheating, maybe warping...

    Comprehensive insurance will cover this. Sam
  6. Jerking engine 1,000 to 2,500 rpm's

    Lesson #4. Don't use cheap plugs like AC or Autolite. Use the correct lettered plugs from Honda. Give this little engine all the help you can. Honda didn't go to the trouble of engineering special plugs just for fun. Sam

    Agreed. I wish we could find out what it ended up selling for. I called, but they wouldn't tell me. Sam

    That wasn't the real auction. The live one was this morning. There is no way to find out what it really sold for. The problem was the up front cost with no guarantee that they would even accept a bid of you didn't have a dealer license. Just too many ways to lose money on a car that doesn't...

    Right. They're both inside the pan. Sometimes the honda parts guys will tell you they don't exist, but they do. Sam

    Well, I planned to bid on this before I did some research. The charges and fees come to almost $400. They are as bad as Copart, but much nicer about it. No thanks! Sam

    I didn't see where you changed the CVT filters. You DID use Honda CVT fluid, right? Sam
  15. Looks like Bridgestone $100 rebate is on

    Honda Insight Forum 1st-Gen Discussion
    Taking turns at speed (Agressive city driving) puts a lot of wear on the front tires. As with most Insight things, slow down. Sam

    +2. I agree. I don't have any problem at all with the tread life. Sam

    I've done it several times in various Miatas and twice in my turbo Insight. Fun! Sam
