  1. Honda Insight Forum 2nd-Gen Discussion
    Fellow Insight operators, I’ve been loving my 2012 Insight ever since mom gave it to me more than a year ago. All was well for its entire life, up until it had the excessive oil consumption issue (cylinder walls were very badly damaged) and the service bulletin put out by Honda allowed me to...
  2. Problems and Troubleshooting
    I have a 2000 Insight 5spd with about 150,000 miles. The other day when on the freeway I had someone suddenly pull out from the service lane with no warning while still not moving as I approached at about 65-70mph.

  3. Problems and Troubleshooting

The right intake valves don't appear to have a cam roller, being new...

    We adjusted the valves on my Uncles Insight this morning. We looked for a write up with pics before we started but didn't find one (Maybe I just didn't look hard enough, not sure)...Anyways we photographed the process in case it would help anyone out in doing their own valve adjustment, it's...
