    HELP!! My 2003 Manual Honda Element has 162xxx miles on it and still drives great. Lately, and only 10% of the time, my Emissions Control Light(not my Check Engine light) comes on AND then my car will get bogged down. I watch the RPMs just drop and I lose any and all acceleration. What I do...
  3. 07 Element SC - Super Specific Stall Issue

    Problems & Issues
    Hi all, This is my first post to the forum, but I have found it super useful in fixing most of my problems.

  5. RPM Drop while driving. AT 04 EX

    Problems & Issues
    Hi. I'm new to this club. Just bought my E about three months ago. Really love it, but I'm having some issues. I've read some threads on here, and done a lot of what is suggested.

  9. My E Shuts Off instead of Idling at stops / Battery Issue?

    Problems & Issues
    I have a pain in the neck problem with my 2003/automatic 4wd EX. Every blue moon when I start my Element the car won't idle. If I drive and come to a stop, or brake and go real slow, or let the foot off the gas, the car cuts off (stalls) the engine and my steering locks up and I coast. Other...
