  1. Aftermarket or OEM Motor Mounts

    Problems & Issues
    Is it worth it buying aftermarket motor/transmission mounts to save money? I am in need of two motor mounts and a transmission mount and am low-key disgusted by the cost of a block of rubber. Looking at RockAuto vs. Majestic Honda. Thanks

  6. Cracked Transmission Housing

    Maintenance and Service
    While replacing Trans Fluid, my brother-in-law and I noticed a crack in the transmission housing. It is near the drain plug/trans mount. I guess I should take a picture. How bad can this be? It scares me, so I'm currently putting it on my "things to ignore" list. BIL also suggested that...
