2000 Accord ded by Ian Singerbeck - Thu, 11 Oct 2018 21:39:49 EST ID:BsPFzMOe No.35890 Ignore Report Reply Quick Reply

I bought this 2000 honda accord, and it's got these problems now:
  • side door impact dented
  • taillight busted
  • radiator or something bust and there was this big explosion of white smoke
  • car wont start: distributor allegedly filled with oil?

Do you think it's worth getting it running again or should I just sell it? And if I sell, then do I have to sell it for scrap value? And if you're going to sell a car for scrap value, how do you get the most you can for that?

get new door on internet, dealership, auto store (if they will order it), or pick-a-part type of place
get new tail light and radiator the same way. get radiator hoses if needed. then for starting check battery, etc... up to you, lad

Why buy a completely shitty car when you dont even like the kind of car or anything? kinda stupid, man. i bought a car for $1k thats a 1998 and is running just fine after a little routine maintenance and getting into the make, gathering info etc. lol i could've just said "welp i bought a shitty car ill just keep it shitty its not worth it" but what's the point. obviously a 2000 accord isn't worth saving by any means but why even bother. you're not getting more than a couple hundred $ for it. just sell it to nearest scrapyard, buy next car to kill i guess.

I'm just telling you man, it's always cheaper to buy a semi decent cheap car and keep it running longer. join the makes facebook groups, i got lots of spare parts for free just from nice people who didn't need the stuff anymore. so its just not worth it to keep killing cars and its also not very nice, an accord is a decent car.

New York City has a lot of trains, uptown, downtown, and across town. The L train to Brooklyn doesn't run on weekends now, but the Q train now goes to the upper east side, The F train is local in Manhattan but express in Queens and sometimes Brooklyn. The Q train is express in Brooklyn, and used to go to astoria on the N line. The L train normally runs across town on fourteenth street and all the way across williamsburg bushwick bed stuy to canarsie, if you want to get to laguardia airport take the 7 or the E or the F or the R to seventyfourth street broadway roosevelt in queens and transfer to the bus, if you want to get to JFK then take the E train to the AirTrain and transfer, but be advised that the AirTrain is like twice the cost of a regular fare and does not transfer, subway to bus, bus to bus, and some bus to subway transfers are limited to 2 hours on the same card, a new card costs one dollar and the fare is currently 2.75

I have already visited many countries, and saw different kinds of transport. But most of them I like tram in Prague, Chezh Republic. You can watch it on https://worldcams.tv/transport/prague-tram. It is old and famous transport in this country. In 2014, the tram gained a new function for the city as a lubricating tram traveling throughout the city spraying lubricant on the rails to provide a smoother ride for passengers on other trams.

I've sent too many cars off to charity or driven them to the scrap yard for the hundred bucks. It sucks and doesn't get you a new car.
Honestly, list it on craigslist if you have the title, as is
Or sell off some parts, look at ebay for examples, trim pieces, chrome grilles, door handles are gold to those who need them.
I mean, or whatever, the $95 will at least get you a cheap bicycle.

I've got a '10 Subaru Forester. Bought it used. Currently at 85.8k.

She's making weird ass noises when I turn hard. Screechy and loud. It doesn't do it every time I turn hard, but more often than not.

Anyone else ever experience this? Power steering issue? Steering column?

So, I'm planning a vacation to Cuba for my birthday in mid November - it's going to be me and my wife. We both speak spanish, she way more fluently than I. Our main interests are beaches, old towns, art museums and historical landmarks related to the golden age of sail.
We haven't completely worked out the budget yet, but minus the plane tickets, I think I'll be able to save up something along the lines of €10009 for both of us for about 9 days there.
We're not particularly rich, but I've been told by people you don't need that much money once you actually reach Cuba.
I'm currently looking for cheap 2-way tickets, and I was wondering which city would be the best to touch down and start our vacation? To some extent, we're dirty hippies, so we don't need super fancy accomodation/all-inclusive crap, a simple room with a double bed and an AC will be more than enough, we don't even need TV or internet, so I'm thinking we'll crash at youth hostels. We don't intend to stay in one place for the whole thing, so I'm thinking of renting a car as well. I was thinking we could start with Havana and make our way south along the souther beachline, then leave from Guantanamo airport at the end of our vacation.
You think a €1000 will be enough for this plan? Any suggestions for particular towns we should visit?
Additionally, what's the deal with weed there?
Also, being EU whites, should we watch out for muggers/pickpockets/generally people who want to steal our shit?

>Thanks in advance, 420bros. This has been my dream vacation since I wasn 17, so any input is appreciated. SLAYER

Weed is like tobacco over there, it’s just about knowing the right guy. But they have a similar situation just because the cuban cigars. You can get the same type of high, just because you are in Cuba. Both of you can do whatever you want to there man, just that ot runs through the locals.

This is my first car and my mom gave it to me, the dealership wants me to trade it in for a newer one, but everyone tells me dont go for another Ford because they are like the McDonalds of car world. They are the first manufacturer but not the best.
This will be my first inquiry into cars, and could start me on really educating myself.

What about Ford makes you Not Want to have one? What do other car brands offer and can I trade a ford in to other dealerships or am I only allowed to trade in the dealership I got this one from?

Hey /vroom/,

So I've been saving money for a year now and living cheap at my parent's place with the general plan that "I'm going to go travelling when I feel ready." Well, I have around 10,000 saved and am feeling pretty ready to go out and do something!

So initially I thought of backpacking for a few months, but plane tickets would eat up most of my savings and then when it's over it's over, time to save money again.

Then I thought of two other things I'd like to do - living in an RV or a Sailboat.

I have years of experience with both RV camping and Boating, so I'm pretty confident on the technical side of things. I guess why I'm posting is just to get it out there - fuck it, I think I'm gonna drive down to the beach after christmas and trade my car for a sailboat and start following the coast!

I work online and don't need 24/7 internet access so long as I can connect every few days to upload documents and answer emails. That and I'm open to the random odd jobs on shore.

Anyone on 420chan ever done the liveaboard thing? What was your experience?

I sold the boat for cash before leaving the island so it doesn’t matter, a drunk guy asked who I was selling the boat to when I was moving out and I told him “you if you want it” so he went to an atm and I handed over the papers. Never actually registered it with the state so it was easy.

I'm starting an extended road trip in my camper van tomorrow.

I'm doing this because I'm pretty sure I have avoidant personality disorder and every tactic I've tried to force myself to interact regularly with people I know has failed. Anytime I socialize with people my brain just goes into fucking retard mode afterwards and keeps summoning up memories of things I did that I rationally know are no big deal at all and giving me horrible anxiety over them. It's worse with people I know and care about. My rational mind is a slave to my emotions; I'm just not strong enough to push through. I figure at the root of the issue is a lack of self esteem and a lack of self control. I think I can work on both by training martial arts and getting out of my room and acquiring more life experiences.

In the past when I tried to take martial arts classes I always felt like I embarrassed myself and wasn't able to make myself go back. On the road I can just go to a new place and start all over fresh each time, abusing free trials so I don't have to pay for the lessons. It will be a good way to get some exposure therapy while still satisfying my avoidant tendencies. Regular interactions and friendships will come later hopefully.

My first destination will be Florida to wait out the coldest part of the year, then I'll start heading west to California and then go north up the coast as the seasons change so I stay nice and comfy. Looking forward to that legal weed out west. I have some tools I can use to earn some money and some savings, so I hope I can keep it going for a while.

I guess I just made this thread so I have somewhere to talk about what happens, although anyone else is free to talk about similar experiences ITT. I hope you don't mind some blogposting. Wish me luck.

I'm still on my trip but at this point I just want to go home. I've basically failed to change again, as always. Asking me to socialize with people is like asking a person with a fear of heights to climb a 50 foot tree. I just can't make myself do it, even just to go to martial arts classes, even with the ability to never go back. I just can't deal with the fear and anxiety I feel.

Isolating myself even farther on the trip was the exact opposite of what I needed to do. I know my depression will never go away unless I end the isolation, and if the depression is there, it will make it harder to do everything, including controlling myself and challenging myself and interacting with people. I can't just fight through it. I need to end the depression by ending the isolation and this roundabout strategy didn't work. None of my strategies work because I don't have any self control and cannot follow through on any of the plans I make to help myself.

Just started reading your thread. I wish you luck on your journey brother.
I suggest going to a rainbow gathering. There you will meet a lot of other odd ball people who live in vans. They can give you advice, their willing to listen to your problems and mostly genuinely want to help.

Also try looking for meet ups on various sites like couch surfing on face book. That way if it goes sour then you can just bail with no social consequences.
Also try an app called park 4 night. Idk if it works in the us but it lists all the spots you can park over night, lit's prices of camp spots, shows free ones and water points.

Good luck man.

OP how old are you? You've got to find some other reason to live than other people. If you continue to worry about how little you talk to other people your anxiety will grow and grow. It's a feedback loop! The only way to break it is to just stop caring about other people and all the supposedly great bullshit your missing out on.

Social experiences on a friday night? Trite wastes of time where you spend money on bad food you could just cook at home.

Adventures and escapades? They may make for interesting stories but it's unlikely that you've accomplished anything meaningful, and may get arrested, hurt, or damage something someone else cares for.

Sex? You are programmed to care so much about sex but it's really not all that great, in it's own right.

Love? Sure, it might be nice to have on-tap happiness but most people who fall in love fall out of love at some point, and the only reason they stay together is due to some outside pressure from friends, family, or the larger economic reality. Life is easier with a partner, but is that what you really want?

Go read some philosophy like The Stranger or Nausea or Meditations by Marcus Aurelius or whatever! Just start educating yourself about how many other people have gone through what you're going through, and rather than whining and running around in circles about their situation they've decided to do something great. And guess what? Do you think you aren't the person to do something great? Well it doesn't matter, because in the end we all die. Try to be something! ]

I was in your position a few years ago and I had the same thoughts of hopelessness. I learned that there is no wrong person to talk to when you're in that state of mind. Just acting cool and sayign dumb things to anyone who will listen. A good way to get someone to listen to you is to listen to their dumb shit first. Try working at a gas station and talking to the alcoholics, that worked for me!

I drive a 2003 Hond Civic, bought used at 110k, Nearly 180k miles now. Radiator replaced at 120k or so.

Sixty-thousand miles accumulated, a problem occurs. Throughout last winter, cabin heat would mot work; until reaching speeds of 40-45 mph, and only after driving for 30 minites or so. Coolant check, oil change, check. Continue without much problem.

I begin to notice that when I turn my cabin temp to hot, regardless of turning air-flow on, my temp gague on my dash rockets up to unsustainable levels.

My questionis whether or not I oughta investigate the thermostat, the thermoswitch for the the belt fan, should I check my water pump (i also see a greater effect ofthe same described phenomenon once going uphill for a prolonged period), do i just have an air pocket in my air system? I have spiders in my vents too. what should i do?

I have some expendable monies in the range of less than 1k.

I've owned many cars in my lifetime (51 to be exact) and I've owned some good ones like a 1990 Eagle Talon TSI AWD turbo that I modified to make 586 awhp, multiple Cadillacs, I even built a 92 Dodge Colt hatch with a 4g63t swap that ran 11s, but this Civic has been my favorite because it's reliable, easy to build and work on, and nobody expects it to be as fast as it is. I'm upset

OP here

This took a really brash turn.

What im saying is that the cabin heat used to run just fine, and now it doesnt.

Not like I need it now. But the engine thermostat reads hot after 2 minutes of switching the cabin heat knob to hot.

Not to derail the thread but I have a smilar problem in my 1988 Honda Prelude, 3G

Has quite the mileage on it but it still runs well. She's my baby & I'm trying to fix her up.

The transmission started going out & I thought it was one, already had the engine replaced. Turned out it just needed fluid.. Japanese & their tiny hands man, took my friends dad 20m to find the tranny fluid to fill it up.

Thing is the car is overheating, especially if it idles a while. I can't drive it more than 30m before the engine temp skyrocets. I may need a new radiator but I don't think that's it.

Fairly vague with my assessment here but any advice appreciated, I love the crap out of Third Gen's. Goal is to keep mine as a parts car & find one with 4WS
