    A follow-up.

    My 2008 Honda Fit finally broke in. Now she has average 40-42 mpg (after 6000 miles). I am happy. The idle speed backs to 700 rpm most of the time.

    Just had my Fit in for its first oil change and check up today. My idle speed with the engine warmed up has been in the 800 to 900 rpm range since day one. The dealership told me the factory spec for US Fits was 750 +/- 50 rpm. That sounds high to me, what have you others seen and heard?

    It sounds right on the money. I believe mine idles around 800 and has for nine months.

    My 2007 Fit lost power after doing an oil change....it will not go more than 25 miles per hour. Has anyone had this problem?

    is your fit AT or MT? if its AT the transmission may not be working properly
  • I have 63309 miles on my 07 fit sport. I was feeling a weird popping or misfire for a about a month now. So i hooked up the carmd to the computer port of the car. I got some codes back and want to know how i can fix them. They all seem to be for the problem that i think i was having.

    P0302 Cylinder 2 Misfire Detected - This fault code indicates the Misfire Monitor has detected that a misfire in Cylinder 2 was detected. The vehicle’s computer continuously checks for engine misfires and identifies the specific cylinder or cylinders in which the misfire occurred. The Misfire Monitor continuously checks for engine misfires. A misfire occurs when the air-fuel mixture in the cylinder does not ignite properly due to the absence or incorrect proportions of spark, air and fuel in the combustion chamber. Possible Causes:
    Fuel system problem affecting only Cylinder 2
    Ignition system problem affecting Cylinder 2
    Base engine (mechanical) problem affecting only Cylinder 2
    Condition For Setting The Code:
    DTC P0107, P0108, P0131, P0132, P0171, P0172, P1128, P0335, P0336, P0505, P1128, P1129, P1259, P1361, P1362, P1366, P1367 and P1519 not set, engine running under positive torque conditions, and the PCM detected a misfire condition in one cylinder. Note: If the misfire is severe, the MIL will flash on/off on the 1st trip!

    P0301 Cylinder 1 Misfire Detected - This fault code indicates the Misfire Monitor has detected that a misfire in Cylinder 1 was detected. The vehicle’s computer continuously checks for engine misfires and identifies the specific cylinder or cylinders in which the misfire occurred. The Misfire Monitor continuously checks for engine misfires. A misfire occurs when the air-fuel mixture in the cylinder does not ignite properly due to the absence or incorrect proportions of spark, air and fuel in the combustion chamber. Possible Causes:
    Faulty spark plug
    Faulty ignition coil
    Faulty fuel injector
    Faulty fuel pump and/or regulator
    Poor connections or loose terminals at the ignition coil, the injector, and the PCM
    "Open" or "Short" circuit between the ignition coil and the under-hood fuse/relay box
    "Open" or "Short" circuit between the PCM and the ignition coil
    Internal engine problem
    Incorrect PCM idle learn procedure
    Incorrect CKP pattern learn procedure
    MAF sensor
    Condition For Setting The Code:
    The execution time is once per driving cycle and the duration time is 200 revolutions for Type 1 and 1,000 revolutions for Type 2. Conditions for illuminating the MIL Type 1 and Type 2. * Misfire Type 1 (Severe) Per 200 revolutions 27-90 times. If a type 1 misfire (catalyst damaging) occurs once, the MIL blinks once per second, a Temporary DTC is stored, and the high rpm fuel injection stop system activates. The fuel injection stops, at high rpm only, on the cylinder that has the highest misfire counts. the MIL continues to blink, and the fuel injection stays off at high rpm, until the drive is completed. If a type 1 misfire occurs during a second drive cycle, the MIL and fuel injection behave the same and a DTC is stored. After a type 1 misfire has been detected during two drive cycles, the MIL comes on and stays on beginning with the third drive cycle, unless the Temporary DTC has been cleared by the PCM. Even if the MIL is on, it will start blinking if a type 1 misfire occurs. If the malfunction recurs during the next (second) drive cycle, the MIL comes on and the DTC and the freeze frame data are stored. * Misfire Type 2 (Light) Per 1,000 revolutions 55 times. If a type 2 misfire (emission-related but not severe enough to immediately damage the catalyst) occurs, a Temporary DTC is stored, but the MIL does come on or blink. If a type 2 misfire occurs during a second drive cycle, the MIL comes on and stays on unless the Temporary DTC has been cleared by the PCM. NOTE: Before you troubleshoot, record all freeze data and any on-board snapshot.

    P0300 Random Misfire Detected - This fault code indicates the Misfire Monitor has detected that multiple misfires in multiple random cylinders (the misfire is not isolated to a single cylinder) were detected. The vehicle’s computer continuously checks for engine misfires and identifies the specific cylinder or cylinders in which the misfire occurred. The Misfire Monitor continuously checks for engine misfires. A misfire occurs when the air-fuel mixture in the cylinder does not ignite properly due to the absence or incorrect proportions of spark, air and fuel in the combustion chamber. Possible Causes:
    Poor fuel quality
    Clogged fuel filter
    Faulty spark plugs
    Faulty Fuel pump and/or regulator
    Poor connections or loose terminals at the ignition coil, the injector, and the PCM
    Check the CKP pattern learn procedure
    Condition For Setting The Code:
    The execution time is once per driving cycle and the duration time is 200 revolutions for Type 1 and 1,000 revolutions for Type 2. Conditions for illuminating the MIL Type 1 and Type 2. * Misfire Type 1 (Severe) Per 200 revolutions 27-90 times. If a type 1 misfire (catalyst damaging) occurs once, the MIL blinks once per second, a Temporary DTC is stored, and the high rpm fuel injection stop system activates. The fuel injection stops, at high rpm only, on the cylinder that has the highest misfire counts. the MIL continues to blink, and the fuel injection stays off at high rpm, until the drive is completed.

    How i fix this?
  • What are the best long lasting spark plugs for the 2007 fit sport? How good are Autolite XP Xtreme Performance Spark Plugs

    Hello. I don't know anything about a car. @So this has been a big problem for me.

    I bought 2009 FIT DX-A about a week and a half ago. about 3 days ago, my didn't start, so I asked someone to jump start. This was fine for 3 days, then this morning the car stop running again.
    When I turn a key this happenes.
    ONE CLICK sound comes out.
    Lights, audio, eveything else works just fine.
    Tried jump start, didn't work or what's so ever.

    Then, I tried to jump start again, this time the starter car had run engine for awhile... @my car went WEEN@WEEN@WEEN but not starting.

    Is this a dead battery?@@I thought when battery is DEAD, all the other electric stuff wouldn't light up as well.

    Could it be a starter?
    Or Could it be something in the engine?

    This has been super dissapointing, I live in the area where I really need a car to go around. I thought I'd ask b/c I'm trying to get a mechanic who can come to my place to fix but I haven't being able to contact him.

    I'm the 3rd owner and my previous owner doesn't know if it has a warranty... I think it still does but I don't even know how to claim it when@I have no idea where they got it in a first place.

    Also need an owner's manual it's not here in the car. @can I buy it?

    Thanks. Hope I explained well...

    I have a 2007 Honda Fit Sport. I think I accidently hit the manual transmission paddle on my steering wheel. Anyhow, when I have my foot on the brake the care jumps like its about to shut off, sometimes it drives funny too. Also the engine light flashed briefly. Is it stuck between the manual and automatic transmission? I have since turned if off all night it is still doing the same thing. (FYI I just got it repaired for a fender bender up front on the left hand side, but it was doiing fine when I took it out of Baugh's auto body shop two days ago). Thanks!!
  • I recently test drove a 2008 Honda fit sport with 86,000 miles on it that I'm seriously considering buying. But I noticed with the air conditioner on(it was a hot day) that the car was idling rough. It was a slight jolt, almost felt like a transmission issue. I'm wondering if that's a common problem, stemming from it being a small engine or if it actually is a problem that could become bigger down the road. Any help?

    Lots of information on fitfreak. The VTEC engine requires valve clearance adjustments. Some owners get away with going 100,000 miles before requiring the valves to be serviced; some require it earlier. My Honda dealer wanted $450 to do the valve clearance adjustment. My mechanic wants $100 less than that. Another item that can cause rough idle aside from the spark plugs is the coil packs that plug into the spark plugs. These coil packs reportedly area a weak spot on the Fit. I believe they cost about $40 for each coil; there are four on a four cylinder engine. My Fit is nearing 100,000 miles and it has never had the valves adjusted. They don't appear to be too loud yet, nor am I getting any indication of rough idle. My guess is that it is one of the two, with the valve clearances being the likely culprit given that many on fitfreak report changing out their coil packs first, but with no fix for their rough idle. After they do the valve adjustment however, the idle is as smooth as butter. Honda Fits are pretty solid cars, so check the fluid in the transmission (the stick is very hard to reach down next to the coolant overflow jug) to see if there is any red color remaining. The fluid needs to be changed no later than 100,000 miles, so if there is some red and the fluid does not smell unusually acrid or burnt, I'd be willing to bet that it is not a transmission issue you are feeling. If you are buying from a dealer, negotiate a great price and then at the last minute, tell them you are concerned about the idle and want the coil packs changed out and the valves properly adjusted before you sign the deal. You'll blow their mind when they see how knowledgeable you are on the car you are buying.
