    Problems & Issues
    Alright, so here's the deal: I just started making payments on my '06 Honda Element Manual EX. Only 130,000 miles on it and no outstanding accidents on record. CEL came on, codes showed misfires on cylinders 1 & 2, as well as "Random Misfire". Replaced all plugs, tested all coil packs...
  4. Shifter

    Under The Hood / Performance
    I don't have any problems actually shifting into or out of gears, but my shifter in my 04 EX seems kind of loose; I can feel it "click" once or twice when I throw it into gear. Do any of the shifter or linkage bushings wear easily? Part numbers or diagrams?
  5. Grinding into 3rd gear: bad clutch or bad synchro?

    Under The Hood / Performance
    So, we have a 2004 Manual transmission Element. We had the clutch replaced in December. Immediately after getting the car back, it was grinding in to 3rd gear. It definitely did not do that before! The mechanic said he thinks it's the synchro and that the clutch is fine. Now I have to take it...

    Problems & Issues
    I bought my 07 with manual transmission a couple years ago but the drought in California hasn't given me many chances to test out its real time 4WD capabilities. I've read post after post here saying that these cars are great performers in snow. We're in the middle of a proper winter here now...

    Thanks to all who've providing invaluable insight into the Element's towing performance. I read everything I could find before my wife and I bought a teardrop trailer a few months ago.

    Problems & Issues
    Bought a used 2005 Element EX, 78K miles, manual transmission, about 3 weeks ago out of state. I had to have it inspected in my state (PA) and took it to a local Honda dealership today to have that done. I drove it off the lot and quickly noticed that it was suddenly grinding when shifting into...
