Our first Fit was a 2007 Base w/auto trans. The 1st generation Fits were OK (2007-08) but they had an issue with the coils and Honda came out with redesigned coils that haven't had any issue since I...

It's possible that you have a problem with the MICU which is in the underdash fuse/relay box. It's been known to fail on some Accords and other models.

I've never replaced the engine on the 1st gen Fit, but according to the repair information I have, the procedure given is to remove it from the bottom, both engine and trans together. It's probably...

Forgot to mention that removing the upper plenum would make it easier on Gen 2 Fits; Gen 1 models (2007-08) are easily replaced without removing the intake plenum. I've done Gen 2 (2009-2013) without...

Is the "check engine" light on? If it was a "solenoid problem" the check engine light (aka MIL) would be on. Your car doesn't have a CVT; they only came out in 3rd generation Fits beginning 2015. If...

We're a "Fit family"

The key is to have a good mechanic check it out thoroughly. My family owns 6 Fits, gen 1 and gen 2 (gen 1 is 2007-08; gen 2 is 2009-13; gen 3 is 2015 to current). We did have a problem with the '07...
