Hondash obd scanner

https://www.hondash.net/?m=1 It is a great obd scanner device. You plug the bluetooth sensor on the obd plug and you see all the parameters of the ecu in a wonderful environment on your smart phone or laptop. I have had it for 1 year now and it works great. It is very useful for fuel consumption and...

Re: d14a4 idle problem

Well, guess what...The hesitation problem is still here. :( The car runs great on full throttle, it is faster than ever. Still, when driving in low rpms, you can feel it is not so responsive some times and you can't drive easily in steady revs. To describe it a bit better, when you accelerate very s...

Re: Dropping idle

ECU learns the idle settings after a reset and perhaps even on the long run. Joris you had mentioned a learning mode skill for the ecu. I have experienced the following. Whenever I reset the ecu for a reason or clean the TB, then the idle is erratic and usually high. The last time this happened it ...

Re: d14a4 idle problem

I can't believe I am still writing here about the idle and hesitation issue... ;) Sudden loss of power and then it pulls again only in partial acceleration, not when you floor it. Also, what you had described, Joris, some posts before. I have stable gas pedal and the car oscillates in surge with a p...

Re: d16a6 head on d14a3/4 block

I guess the vtec head gives the advantage of driveability below the vtec point. Going non-vtec and still making equal power you will need a more aggressive cam, which should affect drivability in low revs, fuel consumption, emissions etc. ;)

Re: d14a4 idle problem

Back in the days I had bought some aftermarket wires called 5 star. I didn't used them for long. Do all d-series wear the same ignition cables?
