Honda Jazz Mk3 2015 - / Re: Steel wheels and winter tyres

Am I right in thinking the tyre pressure sensors work on the rotation of the wheels and donít have sensors fitted in the rim?

EU are determined not to negotiate at all and to punish UK, it will bite them in the bum though.  I am ashamed and dismayed how much help the EU 'negotiators' have had from UK fifth columnist europhiles ' the enemy within' ....

Real negotiations haven't started yet, just at exit stage & it's UK punishing UK - ONLY

At this time of year the main reasons for the idle stop not working are (i) engine not warmed up (thermometer symbol on mult-function display) which should only apply for a few miles and (ii) cabin not warmed up (A/C symbol on multi-function display) which can apply for 10 miles or more if it's very cold outside. Another potential cause is low battery (battery symbol) but this shouldn't be the case with a new vehicle. One way to check if the idle stop is working is, when you are about to stop, to turn off the cabin heating fan which should remove cabin temperature from the car's decision making process.

David Davis was not our negotiator, Olly Robbins had that job, his opposite number was Sabine Weyand.

Barnier and Davis were just figure heads / spokesmen.

Stalling and misfire on mk1 can also be commonly caused by rear plugs never being replaced ( not many any people,including garages know that engine has 8 plugs ) and the gap being way too big, and if left this can cause one or more rear coli packs to fail.

The EU have been completely organised from the start. The list of options available to the UKwas freely available on the internet. They even showed it in a  descending staircase diagram. The UK seemed to enter  the negotiations with no sort of plan and prepared to wing it. The picture of the EU team complete with folders of notes facing David Davis armed only with his silly grin may only be symbolic, since presumably no real negotiations would be done on the first day but it pretty much sums up the situation.
If we leave the EU with or without a deal we will have to negotiate trade deals-- the withdrawal arrangements were supposed to be the easy bit. Then we would be entering the situation similar to the one you mentioned earlier where we go into negotiate the purchase of a car stating that we are going to buy at any cost.
 "Give me a deal or I'll starve myself"
The UK hasn't negotiated a deal in 40 years. They will be negotiating with expert negotiators.
 Of course everybody will be queuing up to negotiate wih us.
They're on to a winner there.
Sorry, this is just project fear
I hope the government has thought this through.
Honda Jazz Mk1 FAQ / Re: The infamous EGR valve problem (Honda Jazz 2002-2008)

Hope it's okay to bring this topic up again. Anyway I stumbled on this forum while looking into how common of a problem Honda Fit/Jazz have had with a cylinder valve going bad as I was felt mine has had happen (more on why I thought this below). What I didn't expect was to find that an issue with the EGR valve was extremely common. That brings me to wonder if someone here can maybe help me decide if it's worth trying to check out the EGR valve or not. Please note this is for my wife's 2008 Honda Fit Sport (as implied, I'm in USA) with 110k miles.

Primary symptom is when the engine is cold (especially noticeable when the weather is also cold) rough idle (sometimes very rough), stalling when under in gear sometimes dying, even just dying when stopping. Note that once the engine is warmed up the issues all pretty much disappear as my wife has never complained of them when it's warmed up and it never does it to me when warm. Also she claims the Lucas fuel injector cleaner does help it behave better (I was thinking maybe valve with deposits that won't clear). Also I swear it sounds like has a slight pinging sound inside that used to never be there(I could just be hearing things). If driven cold too many times in a row, fuel economy will suffer, otherwise it sticks pretty close to 28-30mpg mixed driving. As of late, the last couple times my wife took off without letting it warm up enough, the engine stalled enough to cause the power brake boost to fail, so she had a frightening stop, thankfully no one was in front of her and no cross traffic. I did verify with a mechanic that all of the braking components are good.

Last year when this first presented itself as a large issue during cold weather (hesitation for probably a good year before this with issues trying to die, but not, on stopping) I decided to change the coils since the plugs had just been replaced(even went for premium plugs). It was still having issues so I tested compression and found Cylinder 1 had terrible cold compression, but fine compression when warmed up (rest were fine). At this time the engine finally started throwing miss fire codes, usually random, though sometimes it would give Cylinder 4 (wasn't sure if someone had messed up programming or wiring at that time). I've since seen it give other cylinder numbers as well on the miss fire, but that's it code wise. Since my brother-in-law is a mechanic(has his own shop), I talked with him and his thought was probably a valve not sealing correctly in the cylinder when cold. I then spoke with a Honda dealer to get a quote on fixing the issue, and as expected they said replacing the head was cheaper, though they then noticed it was even cheaper to just replace the engine.

Given the braking issues now occurring, I was looking again at the cost of going ahead and replacing the engine, but before doing so decided I better check to make sure this wasn't a common problem (last thing I want to do is install a "new" used engine only for it to start failing too) and discovered this forum. With that, I'm hoping maybe someone here can say if all these symptoms could easily be worth my time this weekend to deal with the cold and pull the EGR valve off, clean it, and then clean anything else related to the EGR.

Short legs.

Most women have got longer legs in relation to their height than blokes...

My theory is they are trying to see front of car ( or want to be nearer rear view mirror to touch their hair and makeup up easier ). But generally women do not seem such relaxed drivers as blokes, and don't have good spacial judgement ( ducks ) .
