Honda jazz problems

My Honda Jazz started acting up almost like it was starved of fuel. It would drive fine and then it felt like it was rushing through the gears and would lurch, it also felt underpowered. Could it be the fuel pump or is this a gearbox issue. The dealer is telling me it's the gearbox that there is a belt slipping but a mechanic friend of mine thinks it's the fuel pump. Is Honda trying to rip me off?

My thinking is if it runs fine then acts up. Next time you drive, it works fine and then acts up and so on. I would think fuel pump but it could be the fuel pump relay getting hot.also and breaking contact.. If my assumption is correct

SOURCE: hello ive got a honda

Had a similar problem on our 1.2 2002 Jazz. Occasional random jerkiness with no apparent pattern and every time we took it in to the garage it behaved beautifully. Eventually they diagonosed a faulty EGR valve, replaced it (it was under warranty) and we've had no problems since. Apparently this not uncommon.

Fans only come on at very slow speeds or while stoped, otherwise the air flow is enough to cool the water. so the big question is, are you loosing water? if so from where? id check the following. either A get under the car or B reach down on the driver side (the side of the engine with your timing belt) down to where the water pump is and feel the over flow valve, if water is coming from their its your water pump(this is bad very expensive repair, you have to replace a LOT of stuff). also their should be a metal pipe that goes into your water pump/tempature sensor check the o rings to see if they are leaking(or as in my case i had a pin hole in the pipe itself). Check the fins on your radiator to see if they are damaged.

also if its the head gasket this is an easy thing to check. pull your oil dipstick if the oil is watery this is your issue(and also expensive)

more than like an ABS wheel sensor. your vehicle is equiped with 4. behinf each wheel you will see a small set of wires running to them, then where the wheel is attached you will see a gear with small teeth. the abs sensor reads the teeth to see if the wheels are still moving. the only way to fix the prob is to get new ones. buy 1 try it if it doesnt work take it back and get another until the prob is fixed. IT IS STILL SAFE TO DRIVE THE VEHICLE.

The car sometimes misses when driving along. No reason. We just excelerate and and the car sort of hiccups just for a second. We can go for a week no problem then like today it has missed 4 times.

That could be many issues, you need the dealer to keep testing it or wait until it acts up all the time. These types of problems can be caused by soooooo... many things it is really hard to pin down.
