Honda doesn't use Monroe as a supplier for that application. I would highly recommend going with the Genuine Honda shocks on Honda's. Their absorbers seem to work and last very well compared to the typical aftermarket options. Whatever you do, av

Doesn't the military use the regular old kind of impingement for our soldiers? That's what I have and it works great. Put about 2000 rounds through it without any issues. I'm not running thousands of rounds through it between cleanings.

I prefer adjustable valvetrains. I've owned too many engines with hydraulic cam followers that created enough noise to drive me nuts. One of them as recent as a 2007 model 3.8L pushrod V-6 engine. Problem with these is you can't adjust the noise a

Our '04 Cayenne S went thru a qt. every 4k. It had a 9qt. sump so not a big deal. Our '10 Q5 v6 hasn't burned a drop between OCI's Seems like with everything there are always extremes.

One of the most interesting trends I see is Subaru's. Did something major change between 2012 and 2013 with their engines? I know Subaru's oil consumption issues are discussed here periodically, but I'm not up to speed on the details. If they made

My impala did exactly that when it had warped rotors. GM factory rotors are [censored]. If your rotors are factory original, that is the problem.

That engine looks good. Just clean up the valve cover and put it back together. I wouldn't worry at all.

I, too, have heard a lot of good things about the Monroe OESpectrum dampers. A number of folks on Ridgeline forums have used them and report very positive results. I'm looking at them as replacements for the OEM dampers on our MDX.

Is the suspension making any noise over bumps? I think the Fit doesn't have the vertical compliance bushing like in most other Hondas, but it might be worth checking to see if they're cracked or worn, it can lead to odd handling. Probably time to che
