  1. Problems & Issues
    I have an 04 MT, and I had to have the transmission replaced at 175k. I had a used, supposedly low mileage, replacement installed by a reputable shop, and they installed a new clutch "kit" as well. I also asked them to install a new lower engine/transmission mount that I had had sitting around...
  2. Problems & Issues
    My 2004 EX Element with 244,xxx miles started having this issue yesterday. I parked at a park (and shut the car off and got out to walk around..) and made a call, and went back to start my car and this happened: It didn't start, as if I had only turned the key to accessory, which I don't think...
  3. Problems & Issues
    Hey y'all, I just recently purchased a used 2008 honda element with 290,000 miles on the odometer, and I've encountered an interesting noise at 70 mph. It's sort of a dull whine that is only there for half a second, then it goes away for a couple seconds, then comes back for about 3/4 of a...

    I’ve change the tensioner pulley wheel and the belt recently. Still squeaky. It’s extra bad when it’s cold or wet out. And most of the time it goes away after the engine warms up. What else could the squeak be?
  5. Problems & Issues
    I did the breaks and rotors on my EX 04 a few weeks ago and have noticed this noise ever since. Important to note: before I did my breaks there were a bunch of noises so I am not sure if this noise was present before. It sounds like a whale groaning and happens whenever I come to a slow/stop...
  6. Problems & Issues
    Hey Everyone, Just wanted to throw my issue out there for some feed back. Will be taking the girl into the shop soon anyways, but would really like to narrow the issue down. When driving up to speed <25mph I hear a grinding noise shortly after I let off the throttle. I could be in 2nd-5th gear...
  7. Problems & Issues
    When I am at 55MPH and above I hear a loud test tone like noise in the cabin. It does not happen every time. When I let off the gas it goes away. It is driving me crazy. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks
  8. Problems & Issues
    Hey All, Just started hearing this a couple of weeks ago when the weather got cold. Car has 235K on it and I've had it since it was a baby (04).:-D Done most of the maintenance myself and replaced the drive belt a couple of years ago. The whine is louder in colder weather starts (below 40)...
  9. Maintenance and Service
    I just bought a 2005 EX AWD 5 speed with 93000 miles on it. Got it from a really good reputable Honda dealership here in Mass. Test drove it twice. Drove good. Didn’t notice any real issues. Take it home. The next day go to work and get stuck in traffic. Then I notice as I’m starting to pull...
  10. Problems & Issues
    Hi guys!. First, I love Elements, but here in Mexico are very very uncommon, so finding one is very hard, besides that, I have its little brother, an 02 CRV. And I have a problem I want to get fixed, or at least, getting to know the cause, and being aware that Elements and CRVs share a lot of...
  11. Problems & Issues
    Element has 250k on it. It’s been properly maintained. Recently replaced the serpentine belt and tensioner. Flushed the transmission. Changed the oil. New struts. New battery. Etc. It’s hard to pinpoint exactly. I’m guessing timing chain? Or timing chain tensioner? Any advice is much appreciated!
  12. Problems & Issues
    Okay, so I'm driving in Houston traffic heading N on I-45. Usual idiot drivers, but I am abnormally impatient on this evening after work downtown. I feel a little aggressive, a little road-rage session wanting to happen....but no.....I grumble and bitch to no one listening....and the moment...
  13. Problems & Issues
    Yes, I know this is a pretty common topic. But there are so many potential causes, my hope is that with a good description someone can help narrow my problem down a bit. 2003 Element, AWD and auto trans, 134K miles, a recent purchase so I don't know its history. I just had the rear struts...
  14. Problems & Issues
    Hi Everyone, I'm new here, and super pumped about my new 06 Element EX FWD. I had the Right Lower Trailing Arm replaced and now when I go over a bump or pot hole that is anything bigger than a sewer grate I hear a clunk noise. It's only when driving over bigger stuff and coming from the right...
  15. Problems & Issues
    Greetings! I have a 2004 Honda Element automatic with 110,000 miles on it. The normal road noise I have always heard seems to be getting louder. It sounds almost like the time my ford lost all the grease in the rear end and froze up. It is a dull woop-woop sound and at high speeds (70 to 90)...
  16. Problems & Issues
    I really hope someone out there can help me. There is a strange, almost snapping/popping/cracking sound coming from under my center console and/or driver/passenger seat. Almost sounds electrical... Please help!!!???

    I recently purchased an E of my own. 72,000. Great car, beyond useful. I have begun to notice a noise from the rear. I have posted a video here: http://youtu.be/y4n7WAEvwjc It happens most noticeably at starts and slow-to-stops. Once I did this video I started noticing more often throughout a...

    My 07 E just got new Yokohama yk580s after ripping up my tires on some bad roads. Now the front left tire sounds like it's slipping badly on take off. Once it is rolling, even a little bit, it's fine. No problems at speed. It's been 3 weeks now and it's still making a growling noise unless I'm...

    As we turn full left or full right we get a loud clunk just before the end of travel. Dealer used an"electronic noise locater" & says steering gear is going. $1400 repair. We had CV boots replaced yesterday and I had the mechaninc spin the steering wheel while the axles we disconnected. Clunk...
  20. Problems & Issues
    We have a new noise at 45 to 50. It is a hum/whine that comes from the dash. At first we thought it was some sort of wind noise but it seems to be coming from the speedometer area. I know the element does not have a speedometer cable but it sounds a bit like lube problems in older cars. By 55 it...
