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.

Recommended oil change mileage


You can more or less pick your number depending on how you use the truck.
Oil change shops will tell you 3,000 miles or 3 months, the general rule today is 5,000 miles or 6 months, and your owners manual probably says something else.
It should be changed at least once a year if you don't drive it much, or more than every 5,000 miles if you drive it hard or use it for towing or city driving.

it sounds like your oil pump is not working good. check oil pressure at cold and what weight oil are you using. it may be too heavy for it to get up to the top of the motor quick.if there was any build up in the head when you changed the lifters you may want to flush the oil system good then put fresh oil back in

How do I turn-off my Maint. Need light after I change my oil on my 06 Toyota Tundra?


I get many calls a week for this procedure...
This is really easy! Follow these directions:

Turn the key ON

Look at the odometer, and verify that it displays "ODO" and the total mileage traveled. If it is on "Trip A" or "Trip B", press the black stick next to the odometer to read "ODO", and the total miles traveled.

Turn the key OFF.

Press in, and HOLD the black trip meter reset button, hold it in.
DO not release it.

Turn the key ON

Observe the Odometer display. The total mileage traveled will disappear, and you will see 5 dashes, then 4, then 3, then 2, then 1 dash, and finally, 5 zeros. Then, the total mileage traveled will redisplay.

Release the black trip meter reset stick.

This completes the reset procedure, and it will be back on in 5,000 miles, to remind you of you next oil change2.gif.

Hope this helps!

Burning oil, but dont know why


Nowdays 1 Qt. in 3000 miles, really isn't that bad, even some new vehicles claim that's normal. I know with my current vehicles, both at approx. 150,000-160,000 miles, they won't use any for first while after an oil change, but then after mileage starts adding up again, they start to use a little, approx.I Qt, every 1000 miles or so, until it's changed again. I've switched to the high mileage oil, just for piece of mind, as they say it revives seals, and has added protection for the higher mileage engines.This time around I'm thinking of adding "Lucas" & see how it works, as I've heard some pretty good reports on it, just to see if it will prolong that oil breakdown, at mid change.
