Honda generally does put a VERY LIGHT coat of rust protectant on the under carrage and all componets housed inside the frame.
Whether or not you need to apply anpother coat really depends on where you live, Texas or Seattle, perhaps Northern BC (Canada) ?
However it really doesn't hurt to have a shop put another coat on for you .
But make sure you don't get hosed on the price.
I should cost about 1/2 price of whatever the shops labor rate per hour.

Don't say where you live and what conditions are like-- I wouldn't  bother-- Honda's and other modern cars don't benefit from rustproofing. Not worth it.

I had my Ford rust proofed the other day and ever since it squeaks every time i turn the steering wheel. Is this due to the rustproofing? Or something else. Just seems a bit of a coincidence.

under coating usually is not going to make sqeaks but if they splashed some of the undercoating on the drive shafts you can get a bit of a vibration at low speeds and it should be cleaned off or equally applied on the rotating parts under the car at least take it back and get it looked at by them

I had my newerto me2003 Isuzu NPR Gas5.7LBox Truck Rust Proofed recently,cause I live in Ohio.Now the running lights don't work,and the BRAKEdash light is on.Any help with these 2 issues?

NPR trucks , are hard to find books on.
its a heavy truck
seems like the spray on coating (rust proofing)
has invaded a wire to body, ground connection
or got in to a connector.
this can happen.
to fix electric, one buys a schematic first
then uses a voltmeter $10 tool to find this.
I see no online books on NPR.
get one from Isuzu?
heavy means over 4000 lbs, in USA
you are like the 7 th person ever to say county and 1st the state.
Im shocked to the core, what a savvy guy you are.!!!
good luck to you.

I have a 2009 dodge journey sxt , I have the car rust proofed every year , I cannot figure out whre the rust stains are coming from in my driveway

Not actually rust. You have a leak in the radiator or one of the hoses, and the coolant system is full of rusty water.

Your rust treatment coats metal with wax to stop the metal rusting.

When you park your car put a sheet of cardboard for a large box underneath the part of the car where the rust stain is. Hold it down with 4 bricks or stones. Next day, look underneath and see where the spot is? Open the hood and see from above. I am pretty sure I am right.

Of course the other possibility is metal in your driveway concrete and the rust is coming outwards.

CLR will remove the marks.

My 93 tracker has rust holes in the floor panel under the rear seats. Where can I get a replacement panel in Ireland? Can I install a new panel over the old panel after removing or treating the rust on...

That will be very difficult to find. Your best bet would be take it to an auto body shop. and have them treat the rust and weld a panel over the old one and treat it with rust proofing. if you plan on keeping it for a long while.

How to change the headlight on passenger side of honda civic 2003

Well, forgive the generic response.. I have done loads of Honda... but not a 2003 Civic...So, here we go..

Open hood. Locate top headline tab. Remove screw that secures tab.
Next, locate nut on backside of headlight assembly - remove it (it should be a round fastener that has a hex nut top.
Headlight should pull away from chassis.
Connecting cable has a lock tab that must be pressed. If you just pull out on the cable assembly - a large, round (2.5 to 3 inches in diameter) water proofing shroud will come out of the headlight assembly - bulb and all. You will still need to remove the cable connector from this assembly.

Install a new headlight assembly in the reverse manner.

VW Golf 5 FSI 2.0 - Misfires or will not start at all when any moisture gets near the coils or injectors. Even when taking care not to use a pressure hose near the engine.

A quick effective inexpensive fix would be to spray your electrical system with a can of Rust Check. While it is a rust proofing it is also waterproof. If you get the stuff in the green can, it is thicker and doesn't wear off near as quick. Hope thishelps.

How do I replace the right front fender on my 2000 VW Beetle? It's cracked and I found a replacement. I know that the front part of the car needs to come off first, then the fender.

Need to remove the inside wheel liner to reveal all 13mm securing bolts. The front bumper needs to be the first part removed. It easy so don't fear easily. TIP: If you have a pressure washer, wash down the areas clean with simple green, it would be less trauma working on it. I do that even if it's a simple oil change, less cosmolyn (rust proofing) to deal with.

What is the engine oil capacity of the Fiat Strada 1.7td (2005)?

4 litres i think. If you unsure just drain the sump pan. Refit the plug and pour it in 1ltr at a time. go steady tho coz the strada is slow filling pour it too fast and you end up rust proofing your garage floor. LOL
