What is the Engine Mount all about?

An engine mount, made of rubber and steel, has two purposes. One, it secures the engine and transmission to the frame of the car, and two, it absorbs the road shocks and engine vibrations so that the driver does not feel any engine movement. Transmission mounts secure the transmission.

Most cars have multiple engine and transmission mounts. If one of the mounts breaks, you will feel significant engine movement (vibrations and/or shaking).

Engine Mount

Keep in mind:

  • Do not drive your car for too long with broken engine or transmission mounts. It can cause severe damage to the axle shafts and transmission.
  • Some engine mounts contain oil that may leak if a mount is damaged.

How it's done:

  • Identify the broken mount.
  • Remove and replace the mount.

Our recommendation:

Whenever you notice your engine behaving oddly, you should schedule an inspection. Engine mounts are not typically checked during general maintenance, but they’ll be one of the first things checked if you report the symptoms mentioned here. As soon as you notice your engine vibrating, feeling clunky, or being noisy, schedule an inspection.

What common symptoms indicate you may need to replace the Engine Mount?

  • Engine or transmission movement, with bumping or clunking noises.
  • Loud noise when you put the car in gear.
  • Vibration when accelerating or driving uphill.
  • You will feel a movement in the engine compartment when driving the car.
  • Oil leaking from damaged mount (only in case of fluid filled mounts).

How important is this service?

Engine mounts hold your engine and transmission in place. The mounts absorb the shocks of the road and the vibration of the engine and transmission, and keep these two elements securely in place. When a mount brakes, the engine and transmission are less secure, and they’re subject to a higher amount of vibration and shock. This can cause damage to any number of vehicle components, and will also make your ride much rougher.

How reliable is a Honda Fit?

Home/ Maintenance Cost /Honda Fit

Nicholas Hinrichsen - Published: October 15, 2021

There is much more that impacts the cost of car ownership than just the sticker price or MSRP. When buying a car most people have an easy means to find the MPG or fuel economy, fuel costs, registration fees, and insurance premiums as part of their average car annual costs - how do you know how to find maintenance costs?

 

Most people know that certain brands have good cars that are reliable (Honda) and others are very unreliable (Land Rover). While these associations are often grounded in fact - there’s far more data we can use to determine which Hondas (e.g. the Honda Civic vs. Ridgeline) are reliable and which Land Rovers (e.g. the Evoque vs. Range Rover Sport) are unreliable.

How reliable is a Honda Fit and what are the expected maintenance costs?

To look into your specific vehicle’s maintenance costs we’ve developed some aggregated data from RepairPal, Warranty companies, and long-term quality studies to determine both maintenance costs and the overall reliability of a Honda Fit and compared its results across other makes and models. In this article we’ll examine:

  • How reliable overall is a Honda Fit?

  • What is the overall maintenance cost of a Honda Fit?

  • How frequently does a Honda Fit require maintenance?

  • How likely is the Honda Fit to have a severe repair issue?

  • What are different factors that impact maintenance cost?

  • How reliable is Honda Fit over the long term and in the real world?

Some vehicles may appear to be a smart purchase due to low down payments and purchase prices, however you should do some research on exactly how much the car will cost you throughout each year. This article writes about the details of the true cost of maintenance of a Honda Fit in order to answer these above questions to save you time and money. 

Overall Reliability Ratings: Is The Honda Fit Reliable?

Overall the Honda Fit reliability is 85.65 and that makes it very reliable. The chart below illustrates exactly how this ranks compared to some other cars, but the average overall rating is 57 as some comparison.

This data is based on a mix of examining the cost and frequency of maintenance, the warranty coverage, and by looking at long-term reliability by looking at how long these vehicles are typically kept on road. Keep in mind this comparison is amongst all cars, not just compact or subcompact cars in the same class as the Honda Fit.

 

You might notice these figures differ substantially than those you might find in J.D. Power or Consumer Reports. Most publications look at reported issues in the first months of ownership to the dealership (such as JD Power), or ask for owners biased reviews over longer term cycles of their new vehicles. This study instead looks at real world repair costs and frequencies from repair shops and wholesale auction data.

Annual Maintenance Cost of a Honda Fit

Overall - the Honda Fit has yearly car maintenance costs total to $390 .  The table below shows a complete ranking of how various cars rank in this overall system as some comparison. Given that the Honda Fit has an average of $390 and that the average vehicle costs $651 annual --- the Fit is substantially cheaper to maintain.

How Frequently Does a Honda Fit require maintenance?

To examine the frequency of major maintenance we examined how many times the vehicle needed major unscheduled maintenance over a 3 year span. This “major” maintenance item is an expensive system breakage (generally a part or a component with pricing over $1,000) that requires repair. 


It should be noted that while we examine this data on a make model basis, driving habits, condition, and mileage obviously impact results. Each vehicle requires maintenance at different frequencies. Older vehicles may need more frequent services, while new cars can go longer without as much attention. 


You can tell how long a vehicle can go without maintenance services by its frequency score. A frequency score tells us how many times per 3 year span a specific vehicle requires major maintenance. The score is presented over a 3 year span - so for example, if a car has a maintenance frequency score of 3, then this car requires major services every year. The closer the frequency score is to 0, the longer amount of time it can go without major maintenance services. 


A Honda Fit has a frequency score of 1.1099999999999999. This compares to an industrial average of 1.3, so on that implies the Honda Fit is substantially better than average. The chart below gives a breakdown of all makes/models. 

It’s worth pointing out that there are lots of reliable vehicles that may also require frequent, but affordable maintenance. Many domestic brands for example require higher maintenance visits, but at a cheaper overall cost (since labor and parts expense are typically cheaper for domestic brands). This doesn’t mean the car breaks less often, but does indicate that when the vehicle has issues its very easy to fix - which is arguably even more important.

Severity of Repair and how it impacts overall reliability for the Honda Fit

Some repairs can be outliers as they cost way more than the average repair cost. To identify these “big deal” repairs where an engine, transmission, or major component needs replacing, RepairPal uses a severity score for their consumer reports and reliability rating.

 

You can use a vehicle’s severity score to determine how likely that specific make and model will have a major issue. Severity scores are given as percents, with a score closer to 100% showing the vehicle is very likely to need major repairs. 

These scores are especially important for the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA), who enforces the safety standards to reduce vehicle-related accidents; vehicles in need of repair are a hazard to the driver and everyone else.


Specifically for the Honda Fit, this vehicle has a severity score of 8%% compared to an average of 12% for all vehicle models. 


Please note - severity score is a very good indicator of whether or not you might want to purchase an extended warranty. Extended warranties don’t make economic sense most of the time, but they do help avoid high-cost catastrophic events. 

Long term reliability and the “Keep on Road” score of the Honda Fit.

Although reliability encompasses many things, there is a score from Dashlight that seeks to give a good overall impression of an owners ability to “keep on the road”. This study looks at trade-in vehicles both in terms of overall mileage, and the number of reported “red light” issues for those trade-in and auction vehicles.

 

A red-light issue is when there are major engine, transmission, or other powertrain issues that require substantial repairs. This index is good for a couple reasons shown in the 2 x 2 chart below:

Cost / Frequency to Repair 

Low

High

Low

Low frequency of issues, and when they do occur they will likely be remedied so few cars will be traded in with issues

Although repairs are low in frequency, because they are very high cost its likely many trade-in cars will show these major issues

High

Although repairs are frequent, the low cost of repairs means few cars are traded in with issues

Highly likely cars will be traded in with a high frequency of major issues

So in essence this is a good estimate of how expensive it is to keep a car on the road reliably vs. getting a newer car. It's also a good metric to balance out the superior reliability of some brands (e.g. Lexus) with the cheaper cost to repair some domestic brands (e.g. Ford).

 

Overall the Honda Fit has a long term quality rating of 81.3 compared to an average of 43 across Makes and Models we examined. Please note this is not compared amongst cars from the same bodystyle (e.g. hatchback) or class (e.g. subcompact) or size (e.g. small cars) but amongst all cars.

 

Factors That Impact Maintenance Cost

There are a number of things that impact the exact maintenance costs of your Honda Fit. Generally these fit into a few main categories:

  1. The region and driving conditions in which the car is used

  2. The preventive maintenance the car receives

  3. The exact trim levels, configuration, transmission, and options and packages on the vehicle

The region and driving conditions

Would you rather buy a delivery van from Boston or a one owner van from a Grandma in rural Southern California only driven to church? Usage has a lot to do with expected vehicle maintenance costs, and in general the harsher the driving conditions, the more maintenance required. 
 

Good

Bad

Warm temperate weather

Hwy cruising commutes 

Unsalted roads

Smooth level roads

Extreme Heat or Cold

Stop and Go Traffic, short trips

Salted Roads (de-icing)

Pothole heavy hills

The Preventive and Routine Maintenance

Routine maintenance costs and requirements depend on your vehicle’s make and model. These routine maintenance costs will likely help you avoid the higher costs of unscheduled maintenance. Most of the time - you can explore your vehicle maintenance schedule located in the car owner’s manual in the glove compartment to find out which maintenance services your car requires and how often these services need to be done. 


Thanks to modern computerization and mechanical improvements to the design of the engine, new vehicles require less upkeep than ever before. Nonetheless, as a general rule of thumb here’s some general maintenance expenses:


Basic maintenance factors include:

  • Oil Change: It is standard to change a vehicle’s engine oil every three months or between every 5,000 to 7,500 miles. 
     

  • Tire rotation: Because a car’s front two tires bear most of the vehicle’s weight, a tire rotation is needed to spread this stress evenly on all tires. It is recommended to rotate your vehicle’s tires with every oil change.
     

  • Multipoint inspection:

    • It is recommended to get the following inspected each oil change

    • AAA auto insurance offers free multipoint inspections

    • Fluid levels

    • Hoses

    • Inflation pressure

    • Tire tread depth

    • Battery

    • Belts

    • Air filters

In addition to these basic maintenance requirements, vehicles often require some wearable car part replacements that ultimately affect ride quality. As your car gets older in model years or if it is a used car, you might notice replacement costs starting to rise. For example, your Honda Fit might also require replacements. Your average yearly cost of owning will also rise in effect to age. Also, more expensive cars are made of pricier parts, which can be more costly to replace. Replacement and car repair costs include but are not limited to:

 

  • Tires:

    • Checks tires once a month for cracks or tears

    • You can also use the penny test to check the tread depth of your tires
       

  • Wiper blades:

    • The rubber in the blades is upgradeable over time

    • Recommended to be changed every 6 to 12 months
       

  • Engine filters:

    • Stops dirt and debris from clouding your engine

    • Should be replaced every 20,000 to 60,000 miles
       

  • Brake pads: recommended to be changed every 30,000 to 50,000 miles
     

  • Car Batteries
     

  • Engine transmission: check whether your reliable car has an automatic transmission or manual transmission (e.g. six-speed manual) or CVT (continuously variable transmission) 


The exact trim levels, configuration, and options and packages on the vehicle

While we treated all [MAKE] [MODEL] the same in this article - sometimes maintenance costs vary quite highly depending on the exact trim level (e.g. LX, EX-L, EX on most Honda models), engine configured (e.g. the fuel efficient four-cylinder engine BMW is more reliable than the six cylinder turbo), standard features (e.g. airbags, sunroof, etc), as well as additional options (e.g. leather seats, heated steering wheel) and packages (e.g. technology package, utility package) the vehicle has (Toyota infotainment touchscreens in 2002-2004 were not highly reliable).


Although it's not a steadfast rule - the more moving parts, options and packages your vehicle has the more likely these items are to need repair. E.g. a vehicle equipped with Bluetooth, climate control, Apple CarPlay, Android Auto, touch screen infotainment system, and NHTSA/IIHS approved active safety features (blind spot monitors, adaptive cruise control, automatic emergency braking, lane departure warning) has more items to break than a base-level Nissan Sentra with just a steering wheel and AM/FM radio. If you opt for the four-wheel drive or all-wheel drive (AWD), rather than front-wheel drive (FWD) or rear-wheel drive models this too is likely to cause additional complications.


In addition, for styling,  trim levels for the higher horsepower sport models are more likely to be “pushing” the limits of their mechanical components than lower priced based models. The 2006-2010 BMW M5 as an example had notorious engine and transmission issues for a very advanced, highly complex V10 powertrain. The base model 5 series (more tuned for good epa gas mileage) was far more reliable.

 

Will having back seats increase your maintenance costs?

When deciding on the best car for you, it’s important to note the amount of legroom and overall cargo space available to you that will fit your lifestyle. Due to the technology and build of the larger vehicles now, maintenance costs to do not vary that much from SUVs to sedans. A sedan will usually have a lower CPM than most SUVs, mainly due to the higher cost of tires and brake repairs.

 

However, these prices do not deviate that much from one another to detract from the roomy vehicle with foldable rear seats you could have. If you’re a large family, a three-row car is definitely worth the maintenance costs, but if you’re short on a budget and don’t use your car much, only having a first row (Smart car) may work for you.

What are Engine Valves & Cylinder Heads?

The cylinder head is placed on top of the engine block, and contains the engine valves. As the car runs, the valves open and close, allowing air in, and expelling exhaust gases in the process. Cylinder heads house the camshafts in overhead camshaft engine designs, but not in overhead valve engine designs.The cylinder head also contains oiling and cooling passages. V-configured engines have two cylinder heads, while inline engines have just one.

Signs of faulty Valves and Heads

Poor engine performance

If the engine valves are not sealing properly, then the engine won’t have a proper amount of compression. This will impact the power of the engine, making the car less powerful. You may experience hesitation and rough running as well.

Engine noise

When the valves or heads are having issues, you may to hear a tapping or ticking noise coming from the engine.

Fluid loss

If a cylinder head is cracked, then engine coolant may enter the combustion chamber, where it will be burned off. This will lower the amount of coolant in your car. It also may result in white smoke emitting from your tailpipe, and possible engine overheating. Similarly, busted valve guides or seals often allow oil into the combustion chamber. This results in oil loss, and sometimes a blue or gray smoke from the tailpipe.

Check engine warning light

An issue with the engine valves or cylinder head will result in the engine not running properly. This alerts your car’s computer, which will trigger the check engine warning light on your dashboard.

2008 Honda Fit Starter Replacement Cost

The starter works with the battery to set the engine in motion when you turn the ignition switch. Without a functioning starter you won’t be able to get the engine running, so it’s an essential component of your2008 Honda Fit .

Replacing the starter costs between $ 172 and $ 955 to have the work done by a mechanic, while you can also buy a starter and do the work yourself for between $ 117 and $ 794 . The cost of repair will depend on the type of car you own and what parts are used. In general the labor costs are quite low, so the majority of the cost is for the part itself.

Starter Replacement Cost Comparison

Below are some example costs for having your starter replaced at some of the leading auto repair companies in the country. These prices should be used as an approximate guide, as it will vary depending on your 2008 Honda Fit and where you live.

What Is the Starter?

The starter in your 2008 Honda Fit is an electrical motor connected to the battery, which works to start the engine in motion when you turn on the ignition switch. When your turn your key your 2008 Honda Fit battery sends power to the starter, and the motor in the starter kicks in.

This motor will then turn the crankshaft, move the pistons and set the other components of the engine in motion, allowing these parts to move when the ignition system gets to work igniting the fuel. Once the engine is in motion, the starter has served its purpose and won’t be used again until you need to restart the engine.

If the starter becomes faulty or fails the engine will not crank properly when the ignition switch is turned, and the engine may struggle to start or fail to start at all. You’ll normally hear a clicking noise from the ignition trying to do its job but the engine will remain stationary and won’t catch, meaning your 2008 Honda Fit won’t turn on.

Benefits of Starter Replacement

Having a fully functional starter is essential in your car, as without it the engine won’t start and you won’t be able to drive your 2008 Honda Fit at all. The starter is an electrical motor, and as a result it will almost definitely need replaced at some point during the life cycle of your car, so regular inspection is essential.

The starter will be inspected during all routine maintenance work and at your annual check up, as it is prone to wear and tear and it’s a key component in your 2008 Honda Fit . Being proactive is the key to avoiding any issues with the starter, and picking up on any potential issues early will prevent you having to deal with a faulty part at a later date.

The last thing you need is for your 2008 Honda Fit not to start when you need it to, so ensuring the starter is in good working order will help prevent any nasty surprises.

When Should You Have Starter Replaced?

There are a few common symptoms of a malfunctioning starter which will indicate that a replacement is required.

The signs of a major issue with the starter are largely similar to those you would experience with a dead battery. With a faulty starter or a faulty battery, the engine does not have the power required to start the engine in motion.

You can test for either a dead battery or a faulty starter by testing electrical components in your 2008 Honda Fit like the radio, the lights and the horn. If they won’t switch on at all then the problem is likely to be a dead battery, but if they are all functioning properly then a faulty starter is most likely to be the root cause of the engine not starting up.

If there’s a clicking noise when you try to start your 2008 Honda Fit then there may be an issue with the starter, your battery may be low or the battery connections may be loose or dirty. The charging and starting system should be inspected to try and isolate the issue.

Another common issue which shows the same symptoms as a faulty starter is a bad switch, Automatic cars should have the neutral safety switch checked by a mechanic, while manual 2008 Honda Fit s should have the clutch pedal switch inspected.

What Is Done During Starter Replacement?

  1. The first step is to locate the starter in your 2008 Honda Fit . The majority of cars and trucks have the starter where the transmission and engine meet, usually on the underside of your 2008 Honda Fit
  2. The positive battery cable should be disconnected from the battery
  3. The rear wheels of your 2008 Honda Fit should be blocked, and your 2008 Honda Fit set on jack stands which are high enough for the mechanic to crawl underneath
  4. The mechanic will go under your 2008 Honda Fit to remove the bolts which hold the starter motor in place
  5. The starter will be removed from its location, and the wires that connect it to the ignition and the battery will be disconnected from the unit
  6. The unit will be inspected to ensure all the required cables are in place
  7. The car will then be lowered from the jack stands and the blocks removed from the rear wheels
  8. The positive battery cable will be reconnected
  9. The mechanic will then attempt to start the engine and will monitor for any unusual sounds or potential issues.

How to Save Money on Starter Replacement

Replacing the starter is a fairly straightforward job, so it shouldn’t be too expensive for the labor involved to complete the work. It doesn’t require any specialist equipment other than a jack, which most car owners should have in their car or their own garage.

It’s a repair that can be done yourself if you have a little experience working on cars and are confident in your abilities. The part can be ordered online and the fitting should be pretty straightforward. Just make sure you’ve properly diagnosed the problem and that the starter is definitely the root cause, otherwise you’ll be throwing your money away.

The majority of auto shops will offer starter replacement as one of their standard services, so there may be some deals or discounts to be found in your local area if you call around. You can get quotes online, in person or over the phone, so have a look around to see if you can get a reasonable quote for the work.

How Much Does A Car Starter Cost?

Below is a list of prices which should give you an idea of what you can expect to pay to have the starter replaced on your2008 Honda Fit . We’ve looked at the most popular car models in the country, so it should give you a rough idea of what you can expect to pay for your brand and size of 2008 Honda Fit . These prices should be used as a rough guide only, as the cost of repair will vary around the country.

What is an Engine Tune-Up?

Engine tune-ups aren’t what they used to be, so if you have memories of constantly going to the auto shop with your parents for an engine tune-up when you were a kid, you’re not making things up (or you are, but that’s a different issue). Here’s the deal: Cars have gotten better and smarter through the years. Hopefully, you have too. Older cars needed constant engine tune-ups because they, quite literally, needed components tuned. Think of it like an old watch that needs to be wound every now and again. Things like the ignition points needed to be adjusted, and that was just the start of it. Now cars are smarter, and have computers to adjust things on the fly. They don’t need many elements to be manually tuned. So, instead of engine tune-ups being common services to literally tune things up, tune-ups have become a rarer part of scheduled maintenance, reserved for a few components that need some checking up on. The biggest part of a modern engine tune-up is usually the changing of the spark plugs. Spark plugs are kind of like tires, except you can’t see them. They can’t really be repaired, but over time, they’ll reach a point where they’re going to die soon. It’s best to act preemptively and just replace them then, and that’s usually what will happen with an engine tune-up. Engine tune-ups will also look at things like the air filter, to see if it needs replacing. Other elements of the engine will be visually inspected for damage, wear and tear, and carbon buildup. Just to make sure everything is in good working order. It’s worth noting that some of the things involved in an engine tune-up will also be done when you have your oil changed. If you have an old car, you’ll need your engine tuned up with some regularity, but anyone with a new car won’t need the service very often.

Signs that you need an Engine Tune-Up

Scheduled Maintenance

Ahhh, “scheduled maintenance.” Your two favorite words, am I right? Look, we all do it. Scheduled maintenance is something that's easy to "forget". Sorry to be the one to burst your bubble, but scheduled maintenance exists for a reason, and that reason is to help you take good care of your car. Your maintenance schedule will say when to get your car in for an engine tune-up, but don’t worry, it will be very irregularly, unless you have an old car. By following the scheduled maintenance, you’ll get on top of issues before they become severe, saving you time, a whole bunch of money, and a lot of headaches. Or you can keep doing it your way, and see how that works out for you.

How urgent is an Engine Tune-Up?

The purpose of an engine tune-up in a modern car is to take care of components that need addressing before they become big issues.

You should always follow your manufacturer’s maintenance schedule, but your car is still plenty safe to drive around, even when it’s time for an engine tune-up. Get your car tuned up, but don’t cancel plans in a rush to do so. You’ve got some time.

2006-2011 Civic engine removal

There was only one thing left: to beat that the order did not concern the performance of official duties. But with this accusation, I had to go to the superiors to whom the major is subordinate, and this is already an outright riot on the ship. Yearning. And then I made a decision. The head of the first-aid post, a good friend of mine, listened to me coolly enough.

Similar news:

The nipples tensed and from the see and the sensations they could cut glass. With the second hand, I begin to stroke the tense and excited nipples (remember, I have a very sensitive chest), I begin to get. Wet more and more and play along with my hips. I clasp the clitoris with two fingers wet from my lubricant and make circular movements, the excitement is such that I can't stand it.
