    pic of Organic cranberry field, zero pesticides used. We use bugs to attack the bad bugs, no pesticides even organic one's are not used ever. Worlds best AS tire Michelin 3+, I have two more to put on. I don't have the tire shop mount these, very picky-I don't like how a lot of shop jack cars and use too much torque wrenching. You need to use anti seize on hubs-they were welding to the stock rim, I also use anti seize on wheels bolts and retighten them a few times. I set tire pressure at 34 pds. Honda si also just had the ultra Pennzoil 05-30 and napa platinum filter change, 3.48qts. Oil change I noticed not 3.48 qts came out, so the car is slightly over filled.:squirrel:

    1.Michelin Hybrid sleuth wipers for Honda si-these will work in any weather including snow 2. Honda Cranberry 4HP gas rack- hand made at least 20yrs old? 3. 100% organic cranberry's these are the small one's.
    We have other cranberry's three times bigger. Each cranberry is worth 1.5 penny's-their are many millions of them.
    Been real busy today. My sneaker is in cranberry pic-notice its not too clean and not red LOL! The pics are 4mb largest allowed by this web site. I tried 8mb doesn't work so I resized the pic. I think the pics are quite good, using a sony camera.

    :vtec:Michelin Hybrid sleuth wipers installed-this is not as easy to do as people assume wrong all the time. These wipers grip the windshield very good. The correct wiper length is 28 driver and 24 passenger on a Honda si. Many people mess up and use 26 driver or 22 passenger in fact someone did put the wrong size on the driver side 26inch instead of 28 inch. This is a major mistake because of how the honda windshield needs those extra 2 inchs to increase your outward vison. I have to check the other one passenger didn't bother but I will. The honda uses the hook making it very easy to change them out. All ways use a towel when working with wiper blade's some dummy's have actually broke their windshield's by slamming the wiper without the blade-stupid idiot's deserve a scratched up window or broken one:worms:. Notice the escort radar detector one of the best in the world and was when I bought it. I am using a three suction mount very good and doesn't move mounted high up. Also see the world's best cranberry's- I have millions of them, each one cranberry worth 1.5 penny's:woot:getting good with the mini camera which takes excellent pics does video too.:bricks:

    I got the Michelins AS 3+ all mounted up on the Honda and did a oil change at the same time and added new windshield wipers too- that a lot of dough. One thing the drain plug is supposed to be torqued to 29pds, I thought that was a bit high. I am going to retorque the drain plug-it was looser than I would like to see taking off the drain plug. This oil change amount is very screwy. I measured out 16ounces from the 05-20 jug of ultra Pennzoil and added the rest of the 5qt jug. It looks over filled according to the dip stick, but the car isn't level either. THe specs say 4.4 not the 4.48 that I thought it was, so I am one ounce over filled or maybe more due to amount of oil that came out. The dip stick is not what I am use to and its kind of hard to read it. I am using a magnetic drain plug with a simple flat washer-I should be using a crush washer. Perhaps I am being to picky and the other had maybe not.:confuzzled:

    I am going to get some honda crush washers, the washer I used with the magnetic drain plug had a simple steel one. I also over filled the oil slightly by at least one ounce-not totally sure the car was sitting and is on a slight angle so I maybe getting a wrong reading. I took 16 ounces out of the 5qt jug, so 4.5 qts remained but maybe some oil didn't come out. I did heat up the engine before draining it. I am showing drain plug specs torque at 29pds which maybe a bit too much. I only hand tighten the drain plug-
    I will get out the torque wrench and tighten:hyper::bananapoke: it a bit more-it was too loose when I took it off, not leaking however.:pat: I am going to drain a little oil out and torque the drain plug torque 29pds-I am surprised its so much.-I don't normal bother, but this honda seems to be very picky on every thing I do to it. A copper washer would be safe to run not sure about the steel one. I use a honda crush washer next time.

    never had a car that was so picky with the drain plug 29pds of torque and a crush washer most likely to prevent stripping the threads, not going to torque it to 29pds-I am going to torque it to 25pds because I have a steel washer and are not going to lose the special oil I have in the car what bullshit.-every car I had was 20pds including the honda motorcycle which I don't use a crush washer-just a steel one or copper one:barf::bananapoke: -zero problems. Honda specs on torque is for people who don't change the oil often and you go to honda for service-I do neither. A giffy lube would ruin your honda for sure either by over torqueing drain plug or leaving to loose and not using a drain plug crush washer and using dirty oil as a refill and a cheapo oil filter but they do that with every car-Looks like the honda is more touchy then other cars. Well no problem , I investigated this and now know what to do:flame::shady::paper: Honda's a a pain in *** when it comes to getting the correct amount of oil and even checking the oil with that skinny thin dip stick-what the hell is that?:badger:

    ya that skinny dip stick-you can't read the oil level; and 29pd drain plug with crush washer really been throwing me for a loop and the silly car is impossible to measure out the correct amount of oil in the cranky case, but I figured it out how to get everything perfect.:banghead:

    Went to wally world and saw some better Michelin windshield wipers with aero tech -the one claiming to last 2,000,000 wipes, going to try those over the one's I got from amazon-send those back after trying them out for two months:bricks: nothing is too good for amazon world:beer::lildevil::spinning:Seems like I don't drive the honda only on sundays.

    I drive the Honda si tomorrow and test out those World Class AS Michelin 3+ rated Y 185mph about $570 when mount and balanced with special tire lifetime war-tire pressure set at 34pds-that means they are extremely well balanced tires-they look simply outstanding, I polished the wheels and lug nuts too, flushed the brake fluid, added Michelin wiper blades $34 and have changed the oil to Ultra Pennzoil 05-20 and napa platinum oil filter $30. Gee that's $660 a lot of dough, working on cars is really pricy. It would have cost more but I took off the wheels myself and got the tires put on and then put them on myself. Luckily I have my trusty radar detector escort always on. I also have 81 cd's for tunes. A tuner car is never finished.:bricks:

    :pianodance::ownedrun::omg::paper::hmmm?::badger::birthday:the worst dip stick on any car I ever had is honda si-just about impossible to read it. And the honda 4.4 qts they say comes out is also 100% wrong. When I drained the oil out I got about 4.2 qts or less. Trying to correct Honda's mistakes on over filling the cranky case, spilled out about a qt trying to set the right amount loosening the drain plug trying to fix another problem the high torque specs on the drain plug-I set it at 25-26pds. It was too loose on the last oil change because I had torqued it to about 20pds-that is too loose. I am not going to torque it to 29pds with out a crush washer-I won't torque it to 29pds even with a crusher washer. I have some problems also with the VFR 800 and that stupid oil level glass-it too is extremely hard to get the right amount of oil in it. Who makes a replacement Honda si dipstick that you can actually use? Is everything on this car a pain in butt to use-so far I know it is:worms::rantsmiley:part of the problem is this super thin junk 0-20 honda wants the car to run on-by the time you pull out the dip stick the oil moves again, the 05-20 should help. a little, I am going to call honda and complain about these problems. I have fixed everything perfect after way too much trouble-Honda's fault not mine- How many Hondas have the wrong amount of oil in them after this I would think almost all of them except mine -now.:bananawhipdance:cost me 1.5 qts of wasted oil. stupid honda tech:badger: Makes me love my dodge neon. the honda is a good car butt it is very picky on everything.

    you're making things out to be so difficult and they aren't!

    It's worthless to measure what you drain out. Just drain it. You'll always have oil left in the filter and in the engine. Just drain it.


    http://9thcivic.com/forum/threads/2012-civic-si-how-to-change-your-oil.5826/

    12. Remove the oil dipstick and wipe it off with a rag. Put it back in and take it out again. Now make sure that the level falls between both dots. If not add half a quart or so and check again. When reading the dipstick, make sure that you do not turn it upside down as it will skew the reading. Due to the nature of how thin 0W-20 oil is, it is actually quite hard to see exactly where the level is unless you are in a well lit area. The yellow line shows where my level was.


    [​IMG]

    Top hole is the max full mark. Wipe it down with a rag and insert. Pull it back out and look at it without flipping the disptick upside down. Use a light if you can't see the oil. It's not that difficult. Dump around 4qts in and start the car. Look at your levels. Add a bit more and repeat till you hit the mark you're happy with. You should be able to see what is wet and not wet on the dipstick if you've wiped it with a rag no matter if it's 0-20 or whatever.

    0w-16 has been out for years, and is used in some honda/toyota other manufacturers. There is nothing out of the ordinary with honda's dipstick, oil, or torque values. I think the last 3 vehicles I've had used similar dipsticks, torque values, crush washers and oil weights. That was also on various car manufacturers. They'll just throw your complaint in the trash, but if you want to waste your time give them a call.

    :corndance::coffee::pinkdomokundance::spaz:If you want your engine to last 0-16 is a joke, why not 0-0? Oil removes heat the lower the 0 the less heat it will be able to stand. Your oil level is not good-lost at least a half a qt +. Low oil level means the engine is wearing faster. Too much means it won't warm up as fast also causing wear. At the top mark extremely little engine wear. The honda si dipstick is defective because it simply too hard to get a good reading no matter what you do except in perfect conditions that is not acceptable.:barf::bananapoke::paper: It should not take anyone that much time to get the cranky case filled exactly- the everyday honda is either over filled or under filled at least the SI model. the early one's didn't have this problem. Honda keeps making cars without thinking on who is fixing them. I actually think honda does care about this problem, should not be hard to fix-like make the bottom dipstick fatter is that so beyond their dumb phone? Dip stick wet butt where? That is the butt of question???

    those Michelin tires 3+ are just amazing, they grip every where and on gravel pot holes, pavement work too. These tires are outstanding in anything except heavy snow and ice. Raised the car up about 3/8 inch from almost new firehawk 500 summer. Slightly high car is better in bad weather.Nothing can beat a summer tire however above 40 degree's, in rain and dry roads , not that good in gravel however. Everything is a trade off. Right now the Michelin beats the summer tire in the driving I do. I call this tire tuning. Switch to the better tire when conditions change-AS cold spring and fall-Summer-Winter. I go by these three conditions

    Well any way everything I did is 100% perfect or better. The oil spilled on the ground mostly wasted still did flush out the engine cranky case more. The oil level is now perfect, drain plug is torqued on after having to raise the car to the moon due to my cheap torque wrench it does work however. Windshield wiper are brand new with 28 driver and 24 passenger-just a super big very heavy windshield-does dampen noise extremely well. Ultra Pennzoil 05-20 will now be tested hard. I will be able to tell if the car is burning any oil, as far as I can tell -the Honda is burning zero oil. So now its setup for tuning the software which honda has set at granny mode, going to fix that too. The honda engine is built extremely well-in fact it does amaze me with its exact rpm's to gas pedal response.:driving:

    get yourself a set of ramps since you do work on your car. It makes life so much easier. If you push the ramps up to your front wheels and see that the front bumper is going to catch, throw a 2x6 or something similar in front of the ramps. That way you ride onto the 2x6 first, and then ride onto the ramp. It protects the front bumper from being scraped if it is too low. So much better than dealing with jacks and jack stands etc every time you do anything car related.

    :worms::readtherules::hiding:I tried those ramps and failed too:banana whip2:. I should try those ramps-with the neon's first. If I have to do something hard which a oil change is not suppose to be
    I go to a car lift and let someone else fix it while I supervise So far I change the tranny fluid which wasn't too bad and air filter+ cabin filter
    no ramp needed or even a jack-there I got exactly two qts which should be how the oil change should have went.
    Next time I will make sure to use crush washer's, the one I used is steel, copper would have work ok too.
    Add 4 qts then check oil level and use crush washer. I am going to see if anyone sells a better dip stick.:omg: I done working on cars for a while-winter is coming batten down the hatches-all three cars do actually work which is amazing that a car hasn't blown up or tranny fail.:coffee:

    It was a cheapo ramp and it bent. I can't really use a ramp in garage but can outside, I go to someone down the road and use a car lift if I do any big jobs. I don't consider a oil change a big job. I checked the oil again looks perfect.

    The black rubber/plastic ramps I linked have always had a bit of rubber feet on the bottom. I've never had an issue using them in a garage. They've also never bent or anything. They're rated for 12k pounds. Unless you're pulling a semi up on them, you shouldn't have any issue.
