Honda Jazz Mk1 2002-2008 / Re: vibration on tickover
« Last post by culzean on Today at 07:48:32 AM »
Hi Jacko i have changed all 8 plugs about 1 month ago and all filters and oil it runs ok its just on tick over,

Auto-correct changes Jocko to Jacko on my PC as well.........

You have already done the most obvious thing and replaced all 8 plugs,  was this tickover thing happening before you changed the plugs or did it start after.

The first thing I would do is to tip a full bottle of redex injector cleaner in your next tank of petrol,  it may just be partly blocked / gummed up injectors.   If that does not cure it you may have to give EGR Valve (exhaust gas recirculation valve) a bit of attention,   plenty of info on here about it - normally causes more problems than you have but maybe it is only a little bit stuck (it is like having a leak in the inlet tract if it is stuck open at low revs).

Could also be a coil going bad, especially if rear plug gaps have been allowed to get too big in the past and stress the coil insulation - I would suspect rear coils as they run under hotter conditions than the front ones and rear plugs are normally neglected, this forces coils to provide higher and higher voltage than they should to jump the larger plug gap, this can degrade the coil insulation.  Check they are all properly plugged in first and then unplug them one at a time (at the dual pin12 volt connector plug on top) and see if vibration gets worse,  if it does plug that one back in and see which one does not affect vibration when you unplug it - that will be the one that is not working properly.

 A car that has only had little use (50 K in 15 years) may need a good 'shock and awe' dose of redex and a good 'italian tuneup' ,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,

Honda Jazz Mk3 2015 - / Re: Stupid question on "S" mode on Mk3 VT

I advise if you're in a hurry.use S mode.the gearbox will change up at 6,500 .so you leave that.but braking hard.use the flappy paddle to drop 3.4 or 5 gears
It's great fun.And the Jazz is very quick like this

This may have been mentioned in the thread but if it hasnt then it might be of interest.

If you are in S mode and use the paddle shifters the car will go into manual shift mode and an M will appear on the display - it wont revert back to auto like it does in D mode - so you are free to gear up and down using paddles. If you want to get back to auto/cvt mode you just hold the + paddle shifter for a few seconds and the M will disappear from the display and you are back in auto mode but still in S.

Read it in the manual and tried it whilst utilising S mode frequently recently.

A fat middle aged woman, on her way to "Curves" the local fitness centre, had 30 yards of space to park in, but pulled right up to the junction to park, to save her walking that little distance extra. Seems she had a fat head, not just a fat @rse.
Rant over.

I have seen that on our local shopping centre Gym,  members try to park right outside the door,  they could save themselves gym membership if they walked a bit more and took stairs instead of lift (and ate less,  but lets not go there).  People go to gyms for more than exercise though,  they go to perve and for the company sometimes,  I doubt many gym goers carry on much after mid February and gyms are more than happy to welcome in the 'new years resolution' members as easy money.

Being a 2003 it will be an i-DSI which has 8 spark plugs. Chances are the rear set of 4 have never been changed in ages. Many mechanics have no idea that they are there.

My first check would be to ensure that all 4 cylinders are firing? It quite possible that a cylinder could misfire at tickover, but is OK when revved.

So it's human nature that special-purpose parking spaces will always be misused ? But yet we're expected to believe that public charging of EVs is a viable way forward for folks without the possibility of  charging at home ? Bit of an inconsistency there.

Honda Jazz Mk2 2008-2015 / Re: strange thing happened to air con ..any idea
« Last post by culzean on July 16, 2018, 02:38:05 PM »
first of all thank you culzean  for getting back to me ..my car has only done 8k mls  from new & an old bloke had it before me so guessing he didn't use the A/C much. .checked the cabin filter and its like new .checked fuses all fine ? ..took it out today did about 50mls with A/C on all the time & it was fine ???

Seems a bit counter-intuitive that low gas can cause the system to frost up, it messes around with the gas pressures in the system and if not enough gas the gas is a lower pressure and this causes it to expand too soon,  and it expands in the low pressure pipe leading to the condenser and not the condenser itself.   I have seen this on fridges and freezers before now as well.

A blown fuse would stop it working,  though not sure how it would cause it to freeze up  :-X
