Well, here we are. It's been a while, ok several years, since I've checked in here but my 2010 Honda Insight has now topped 408,000 miles. I'm no longer driving the distance I used to but the car still manages to run great and get me to work daily. Ok, almost great, the other day it just gave up the ghost and I limped into my works parking lot. Had the car towed to the dealer to find out 4 coil packs were out, it needs spark plugs, and the gasket cover is leaking. Needless to say, I was about ready to donate the vehicle to NPR and give up my dream of 500,000 on my beloved Insight. Hell, I don't even have the snow tires off yet. After doing some research, and talking to those more knowledgeable than myself, the task of replacing some coil packs and spark plugs didn't seem all that daunting. At least not as daunting as the $3000.00 price tag the dealer quoted. I've decided to tackle this surgery on my own, at least determine the cylinders misfiring and replace those plugs and coil packs. As far as the gasket leak goes, what's adding a little oil here and there, I don't believe I have the expertise to tear down the engine to replace a gasket. If anyone has any advice or has experienced some of the same diagnosis' as I have, I'd enjoy hearing your stories and would definitely take your advice to heart. I can barely picture my life without my Honda Insight.
