  1. I have a few issues/questions - looking for a knowledgable Element friend in NYC/NJ area.

    Problems & Issues
    Hi everyone! I bought an '09 Element a few years ago to do a cross-country road trip and fell in love with it. It's my daily driver and I've used it for countless adventures. Whenever I've had an issue or two I've come here looking for others with similar issues and resolutions. I've often come...

  3. Screeching/metallic whine issues. Help?

    Problems & Issues
    I recently bought a used 2006 Honda Element. Good price, interior chewed all to hell by a wolverine or whatever the previous owner had, but nothing seat covers can't fix. 160K miles. Manual trans. When I start the car there is a whine that seems to come from the right side (passenger) of...
  4. Can't find a replacement drive belt

    Maintenance and Service
    I drive a 2003 2WD Element DX with Automatic transmission. I wanted to replace the serpentine drive belt and ordered the only one listed for my car. But it is too long. It's about 69 inches, and the one on the car currently is a seven rib serpentine belt about 55.5 inches long. I bought the...
  5. Water Pump replacement

    Maintenance and Service
    Almost 90% positive that my water pump needs to be replaced. Woke up to a good amount of coolant having leaked out from under the car, and upon closer inspection my best guess is that it's coming from the water pump. If that is the case, what else should I replace when I'm having the water pump...
  6. Different color seatbelts?

    Interior
    Anyone ever swapped out their seatbelts (front, back, both?) with a different color? I think the FLAME RED at this link would look pretty cool in my E: http://www.seatbeltsplus.com/product/WSCH201P.html I searched a while on the forums, and maybe I'm just a noob, but couldn't find anyone...

    Miscellaneous / General Element Discussions
    sad sad sad. I went to the dealer today to get a duplicate key cut... "While the key is being programed Mr. Andy we went ahead and did a multi-point check for you to see if you're due for any service..." (I didn't clue him in that my past-time is maintaining my E) "Here's your key Mr...

    Problems & Issues
    how do I find a Bypass Pulley (A/C) 2003 Element or can I use a shortened S-Belt?
  9. Sudden loss of power under acceleration?

    Problems & Issues
    I accidentally let my 03 Honda Element get very low on oil (still on the stick, and no oil light on, but pretty low). The car started acting weird: once the engine warms up, if I try to accelerate hard, it won't respond, it just slows down. Even if I accelerate slowly, it will only let me get...
  10. Timing Belt/Chain?

    Under The Hood / Performance
    Hello my favorite Lunchbox cruisers! I have a question. I am going to seem a bit inexperienced, but I'm learning! My buddy and I were talking about timing belts, and I had heard of two different kinds of belts. I've heard of the good old rubber belts, and also timing chains. What is the...
  11. Timing Belt or Chain?

    Maintenance and Service
    As many of you know Honda has started using timing chains on their engines instead of timing belts. I am not sure why they are doing this, they have used timing belts for the past twenty years. Also new on Honda's is the engines have been turned around and the transmission is on the other side...
