Honda Jazz Mk1 2002-2008 / Re: Fuel smell in engine oil
« Last post by navhonda84 on Today at 10:07:00 AM »
Right . yes there will be a fuel regulator most likely on the fuel rail. old engine oil often will have a smell of petrol in it. change the oil and filter and just check it in a few weeks to see if that smell is consistant

Did a full service (oil, air, oil, pollen filter, and spark plugs) when i bought it.. since done probably less than 100 miles.. and the oil already smells of petrol....

Are you saying the fuel rail will have a fuel regulator inbuilt? there is no sperate fuel reg in the engine bay... atleast i cant see any.. i had a look at the parts pic and it says its in the fuel tank..

According to this https://www.parts-honda.uk/honda-cars/JAZZ/2008/14-ES/ENGINE/INTAKE-MANIFOLD-2-/17SAA801/E__0301/1/22302 the o-ring is nor available!

I think that is because 20 and 21 come as a set.. not sure though

I don't want to rubbish all RAC operatives but I remember a string of reports some years ago where they were diagnosing failed batteries and offering to collect, deliver and fit new ones when the old battery didn't need changing.

They were on to an earner apparently.

They lost my trust.
We all know that there are a few bad apples in the basket but that shouldn't affect your outlook on life.
After all what's the alternative?

I know its too late - but perhaps a rear facing dash cam would have helped identify - and prove for insurance purposes.

Where was the location of the collision.. is it possible there may have been CCTV nearby, a business, road traffic or even something like a Ring doorbell?

As to the damage, I would try a mild t-cut, or just a good polish first.

Thanks for all your replies. On the Crosstar the rear bumper is textured plastic not painted, so the suggestions by @Jayt43 and @Bruceboss are certainly worth trying.

As to the culprit, he was illegally riding a private e-scooter on a public road (as were his four mates). He was off round the corner like a shot, whilst I was stuck behind two cars waiting to exit the 'T' junction. So absolutely no chance of identifying or apprehending him.

In my area its not just the risk of uninsured vehicle collisions . Despite there being no legal e scooter scheme we have people hurtling down footpaths at 15 -20 mph with no possibility of stopping if someone steps out of a gateway or ,suddenly changes direction etc  Mostly youngsters but I did see an oap using one,albeit fairly carefully but still illegally.   They could easily kill someone, especially a child or the elderly.(or themselves. Oh dear what a shame). E scooters could  be an eco friendly mode of transport if restricted to a useful number of designated cycle paths.    And heavily penalised and actively condemned  by the public  if used elsewhere.  I read somewhere that police are developing a system that can stop an e scooter  by disrupting its electrical systems.   Maybe a system whereby legally acceptable private e  scooters  must display  a visible registration  number and also continually transmit a unique identity code using something similar to keyless entry transmissions.  Use it somewhere inappropriately and who knows whether you will have been identified, by official tracker devices  or even the outraged  public using phone apps etc. 

The legal rental schemes (in Bristol and Bath it's Voi) do some of that.
- You can't rent one unless you have at least a provisional licence (which means points can be added), and you have to do an online training course before your first hire
- They have lights (including brake lights and indicators), bells, visible ID plates and insurance
- They are geo-fenced so can only be used  in certain areas, and are speed-limited in some locations. Although this isn't good enough to prevent use on footpaths alongside roads.
- They are tracked by GPS
- They are only legally allowed anywhere cycling is allowed (so roads, cycle paths, and shared paths)
- Voi are keen to protect their reputation during the trial period, and operate a "3 strikes and you're out" policy. But someone has to report them.

None of that prevents them being used illegally (eg on pavements or with two riders) unless someone's quick enough to read the ID plate and report them. And of course none of that applies to the illegal privately-owned scooters that are being sold with no controls whatsoever.

sensor/toothed ring ( I donít recall itís actual name).

These are known (generally ) as reluctor rings and a problem can be that as they work on a magnetic field they tend to collect metallic debris, so cleaning the ring and sensor is is a good call.

Another problem can be that this ring cracks / splits and requires replacing. I had this on a  a Ford Granada some years ago which had to be replaced by a local garage.

There are a number of brands of colour coded renovation polishes that might help.  broad spectrum colour  - eg for 'blue cars, red cars, silver cars, dark cars. 'etc.  There may be products specifically targeted at matt plastic trim .   The danger is the affected area may become equally conspicuous due to the texture being over polished ,rather than the scuffing.    So as suggested by others  maybe try it in an inconspicuous area first.

My wife scuffed the plastic rear wheel arch trim on our Crosstar. The damage looked quite bad at first. However, to my surprise, after using some scratch removing polish (Meguiars) it's now pretty much invisible.

Maybe the wheel arch trim is slightly more textured than the rear bumper, but have a (gentle) go with that (in a small area at first). I think it should clean up quite nicely.
