I purchased my 03 back in December privately for $2,500 at 225k. The car was meticulously maintained at Acura dealerships it’s entire life. In recent years the rack and pinion, alternator, radiator, timing belt/water pump/valve adjustment, spark plugs, oil pump seal kit, a/c com clutch, oil pan, and rear shocks were done. I’ve already managed to put 20k on so we’re sitting at about 246k I’ve been “flushing” out the transmission w/ Maxlife and lubegard which has transformed the car. The trans was also done 10yrs ago at around 100k and is a reman unit from Acura w/ blue bolts. The suspension is all original yes original control arms and front struts still reasonably tight!! The only thing that’s been replaced is the sway bar links and rear shocks. I’ve done fluid flushes and radiator cap and throttle body and various sensor/port cleanings.....The only thing I’ve replaced we’re the extremely dry rotted Michelin’s with a set of continentals, the high pressure power steering hose, and fixed the big oil leak which ended up being a fu**d up crankshaft seal which we believe was fault of the dealer when the oil pump was resealed and the oil soaked timing belt replaced at 230k. The car runs and drives great. I’m going to start commuting an hour and a half 4 days a week for college for almost the next 2 years and I’m wondering if there’s any particular habits like certain driving styles/techniques I could get into mostly too save the transmission from blowing and to last as long as possible besides the typical driving d4 for town and d5 50+ and “flushes” every other oil change... it shifts good but has a minor hiccup once in a while like a clunk but not sever usually undetected by passengers which has happened less every time I change the fluid. Im also going too submit an oil sample and was thinking of upgrading too 5w-30 for increased wear protection and longer life. And if there’s anything else I can do too make my Dory just keep swimming lol and yes she’s blue! I want too make it 300k and beyond. Sorry for the long post as well.
