Since you own an '07 Si, what are your thoughts about the 3rd gear issue that some people have been reporting? Have you experienced it with your Si? Suggestions?A real Honda Tech said:I always wanted to make one of these threads...
Ill try to answer any questions that I can....
How long did it take you? How long have you been a tech? How much do you make now?A real Honda Tech said:At honda we balance and rotate tires every 7k miles or so.
usually when your oil light says 20%, you should do an oil change. And dont worry about Vtec'n it..lol
As far as training goes, I went to SUNY Morrisville for automotive technology, but I graduated from Lincoln tech.
Yeah Ive been having the 3rd gear problem. it drives me nuts.. Next weekend Im gong to change the MTF with something else, and see how that helps. and eventually Im going to get shifter bushings and a short shifter. Ill check tomorrow at work if there is any TSB or anything.alpha said:Since you own an '07 Si, what are your thoughts about the 3rd gear issue that some people have been reporting?

There are alot of threads about it here.
Well, the Morrisville program was a 4 year bachelors program, but I hated the school, so I didnt finish. And eventually got screwed at another school, so my emergency decision was to go to lincoln tech which is a 1 year program. Ive only been working at honda since October. As far as money, I dont get paid flat rate yet, since I dont think Im fast enough and experienced enough to make the hours that I want, but I make only 30k right now. I may consider moving on soon to make more $$$$$$$asndragonboii said:How long did it take you? How long have you been a tech? How much do you make now?
Probably teh hardest question..maximus20895 said:What's the best part about your job?
Well, we dont put synthetic in any car unless its provided by the customer. Even with synthetic I would only go about 5k miles. And the oil life I believe is just a 3kmile interval sort of thing.FG-Habanero-NavI said:I have a question...last time I went in for a oil change the service writer changed my car to Synthetic...he said now I can go to 7k between oil changes..is that true? And also, now that i've switched to Synthetic, will my oil life indicator go with the Synthetic now? Or is it based off A 3k oil change interval? <-- probably a stupid question, but just wondering, thanks..
ooh.. that would make sense since you have access..lolKurt said:Thanks, but I work at a Honda dealership. I was just going to check if there was anything on the 3rd gear grinding because I'm bored.
