  1. Problems & Issues
    Hi Everyone, This is my first post on the forum. I'm considering purchasing this 2008 Honda Element, but I'm concerned about the Ticking sound the engine is making. Is this normal for Elements, or could this be a major problem with the engine? The car has about 98,000 miles on it. Any opinions...

I personally maintained it for 150k miles using OEM Honda parts and have a few parts that I...

    So I figured I'd start a thread dedicated to the work that i'm doing on my 2008 Element LX 4WD 5-Speed. I had been posting updates in another thread but thought it'd be best to house all the info and updates here. Not sure what I should call it, but Jelement sounds kind of catchy although a...
