In this episode of Fixing it Forward I fight with a pesky check engine light that just won’t go away. The code is for the VCM system not working properly, so I try a VCM muzzler to see if that can help. Watch the video to see how that all works out.
I also wrap up a couple of loose ends by fixing the radio reception and install a new glovebox assembly. All of this information can be used to fix your own vehicles.
I’m happy to report that this video wraps the mechanical work on this Odyssey. In the next episode we are going to give it away to someone in need. Don’t miss it!
