Question about 2004 Honda Element

1 Answer

The mileage display disappeared and I can not tell how many miles

It worked fine but then it went out. I had the oil changed a few months ago and when I got it back they had reappeared but a few weeks later went out again. I took it to the same place but they didn't know how to fix it. I have checked all my fuses and they are all fine. I dont have an owners manual. what could it be.

I assume you are referring to the odometer. It has two lights, and if both are out you will not see the mileage unless you use a flashlight. It is not hard to replace these lights yourself but if you take it to a dealer they will charge you a fortune - I had one quote of $200. They said the dash has to be removed which is bull. I have done it twice now and it takes about 10 minutes. Here's a link that shows the steps (the link is for changing the lights to LEDs but you can just use it to change the standard bulbs). http://www.cardomain.com/ride/807962/2

I found this out on HondaElementOwnersClub.com, which is a great site for all things element.

I vote for oil pressure sender unit. Cost of new sender vs putting in a maual guage to see if is the pressure is dropping is about the same.

My car is a 2006 Suzuki forenza manual with 67k miles on it. It just had an oil change a few months ago with a new filter as well. I didn't drive the car for a few days while the temperature was...


Suzuki should have stayed with just motorcycles. Anyway, You just had the oil changed. Check and see if they changed the filter also. They may have forgot or were just to lazy. Just a chance the oil filter is bad, I would replace it again(is the oil clean on the dipstick?). Add a higher viscosity oil. At 67,000 miles, you would have to drive dirt roads all the time, with no air filter to get sludge to clog the head ports. Which is slow drain of oil to the pan. The oil pump? well it could be, most likely not. I would say the oil sending unit is bad, but the knocking noise kind of throws that off. Knocking is bad, if it happens again, pull off and shut the engine down. One other thing to watch is the temperature gauge. getting really hot will cause knocking. Check coolant level and the thermostat.
