You guys are joking right?! I mean Hondas are the most reliable cars in the world! Nothing ever breaks on them right? Nah its probably not even the alternator, probably just bad gas or a lose connector something simple right?

4-6 hours seems about right. :(

Front left wheel has to come off to get at one of the bolts, and even then you gotta slinky in with a long extension... also needed the 3/4" drive impact gun to bust it loose :o
Also got a "new" used muffler installed yesterday. No more hamster morse code and muffler innards rattling around at idle

This Honduh'* been perfectly reliable, this alternator has been the only unscheduled repair and even then it'* not so surprising, I don't know if its original or not. For a $500 purchase it doesn't get any better than this in terms of reliability

I can blame bad gas for some detonation though... what knock sensor?

This could possibly be off topic... but im thinking of picking up a 1991 audi 100 with the 5 cylinder. Anybody have any experiance with these engines?? pain in the ***? or easy as hell to work on?

Thanks in advance.

Audi........................ . I've heard that they are great cars, but very expensive to repair. Even if you're doing the repairs your self, I've heard parts are big bucks....no wammmies.

What kind of shape is it in? If it'* mint, it might be a fun car... if it'* achieved beater status, stayyyyyyyyyyy away.

But yes, parts and repair may be more intensive / expensive. A re-mfg'ed alternator for the Civic (60 amp) was only $70 after core... muffler $15 at the scrapyard.
