    Problems & Issues
    Hey guys, 2005 Element on-demand AWD, AT with about 165k here.

  2. Vibration between 15 and 25 MPH

    Problems & Issues
    My 2003 Honda Element has 260,000 miles on it. I am the original owner and have kept it in good running condition. It recently developed some vibrations, so I did the following: I had all the wheels balanced, which helped. Then I took it to my mechanic and told me that the differential mount was...
  3. Shimmy, mostly at 45-60 mph

    Problems & Issues
    Hello everyone. New guy here. Bought 2006 Element brand new without ever having an issue... until recently. First off, I have an EX 4wd AT and all was fine until my wife hit a huge pothole at speed and the rear end was never the same. It has a persistent shimmy, makes a womp womp sound that...
  5. Low speed vibration when driving in high gear (AT)

    Problems & Issues
    I searched through the vibration related threads and could not find the same description, so figured one more thread on a unique vibration may pull some more experience to my troubleshooting. 2007 SC 204k miles, 5AT, bought used (no vehicle history), no check engine light. The vibration only...

    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...

  8. vibrating while cruising 40-50mph

    Problems & Issues
    I have a 2006 automatic. When I'm cruising usually around 45mph, the front end will start vibrating until I let off the gas. I feel it more in the pedals than the steering wheel. I feel like its nothing to do with wheel bearings or suspension. Anybody have any clue?
  9. Help: do I need to replace this ...

    My sway bars need to be replaced on my rear end(90 percent sure this is the correct part I am describing) . While looking at these my mechanic said I shoul also replace the much more expensive ELEMENT REAR DIFFERENTIAL DYNAMIC VIBRATION DAMPER. However in studying a friends 2004 E I found that...
  10. Shuddering when accelerating from rest.

    Problems & Issues
    Hi all. I got my hands on a 2003 EX auto last October with right at 88k miles on it. I've taken it to 97k, but have an issue that I am just not sure what to think about. First of all the car has a very extensive maintenance record with almost exclusively dealer servicing. The only...
  11. Sounds like I'm driving over a rumble strip

    Problems & Issues
    I've seen some similar posts- but not exact- my 2003 element is currently at the dealership and the service tech is trying to figure out the problem- he is suggesting it is a misfire and i need Honda sparkplugs- its not sitting well with me- it feels like i am driving over rumble strips in the...

  13. Vibration when Idling and Accelerating

    Problems & Issues
    I have a 2003 E 4wd EX manual with 118,000, and was wondering where this vibration is coming from. The car has a suddle vibration at idle, and under heavy acceleration the car vibrates. I am most certain it is coming from the engine/drivetrain area, not tires. I have deduced that the...
