Fwiw I am planning to take it in AGAIN but I’m at a loss for what is happening. 2016 Renegade’s SE Light came on in early May and was struggling to turn over when the temperatures were in the 80s or above. Took it into the dealer (I’m past my warranty but my bf’s mechanic said it was throwing too many codes) and they replaced the battery. SE light came on a week later. They replaced the cabin filter, air filter, and Fuel tank pressure sensor.submitted by Nerdmiga to JeepRenegade [link] [comments]
Light is on again and doing the same thing, but this time it’s only when I fill the tank. Not over-filling it (stopped at the click) and not waiting til empty (had two bars).
So frustrated and already put $1,000 into the first two fixes that didn’t seem to fix the problem.

2023.06.03 22:26 Strong_Artist_7960 Enhance factory Bose subwoofer - DIY
I've done this in several vehicles and just did it yesterday in my 2015 Q70 - this works for any sedan. Results are impressive! Bass is much deeper and fuller, with more impact. My girlfriend immediately noticed so it's not placebo 😎submitted by Strong_Artist_7960 to infiniti [link] [comments]
Overview - Apply peel and stick deadener to rear deck and behind the rear seat
Here's the premise - The factory subwoofer is a free air design. Free air subs can be amazing - but they still need an enclosure separating them from the cabin. The design of the rear deck and behind the seats have large openings in them from the factory which diminishes the performance of the subwoofer by allowing the rear wave to cancel the output.
I just traded out of a car with aftermarket subs and this is a very noticeable improvement for less than $30.
Next step is working on the 3.5" mids in the dors - if they're the same as in the G37, they suffer from significant cone breakup over 9kHz so I'll install a passive 12dB low pass filter at 5kHz to take the vocals and higher frequencies.

2023.06.03 05:18 ndlacajunwiseguy 2020 (goldilocks) ridgeline with modifications
Wanted to post the 2020 ridgeline (goldilocks...I like the old style, but has the new transmission) version that I bought new before all the pandemic weirdnesssubmitted by ndlacajunwiseguy to hondaridgeline [link] [comments]
1: 2 inch traxda lift. This is really the sweet spot, going over really runs up the price and 2 inches puts it on par with the taco/rangecolorado that run next to you
2: firestone destination at2 265/60-18 . No rub on full lock forward/reverse. Reason for getting was white lettering and the reviews were very positive on highway manners and wet performance. Wet performance is big for me since I am driving in the wet a good majority of the time.
2A: Tires plus lift is roughly 2 1/2 inches up. Wife: why did you make it so high? its hard to get into!
3: under body protection of mostly no low design front skid, front diff and catalytic protection (mostly to slow down/prevent someone going after my cat...its a thing in my area)
3a: front skid plate NEEDS replacement m6 bolts on the front that are automotive grade class 10.9. The stock bolts are meant to hold a tin shield and they will loosen and cause a bunch of creaking/groaning. If you attempt to tighten..they just break.
4: fog lights are diode dynamics SLF white, the 780 lumens is a great match and does not over power the main headlights. They are actually very useful in our dark and rainy nights here in Louisiana!
5: Brush guard, I think this was CarID...but not even sure you can buy anymore. It was roughly $350 at the time. Downside is the top tabs running under the hood...I had to take a stainless pad to them and really scour them and put on real black paint that could stand up to the rain. The stock coating rusted very quickly.
6: AEM drop in air filter. Clean/wash it every 3 months...works great.
7: CarID for the dash cover, I keep my vehicles for a long time and most end up with cracked dashes so wanted to prevent that on this ridgeline. Plus I could geek out and put my gamer handle embroided on it...kids/wife roll eyes... me dont care.
8: Steering wheel cover off amazon for $20, keeps the steering wheel in great shape and the aftermarket is really decent.
9: Full size spare on the back. This takes some amazon...you need a m8 140 to 160mm in length. I got the 160mm in length from England and its just a tad too long. I used rubber spacers on the stock insert. The stock tire holder requires a new hole, I screwed in my bolt...put some paint on the top and put the tire on with the stock holder. It showed me where the bolt hit the stock holder and voila...drilled my hole there. Its pretty much right on the edge..like 2mm off the edge if you need to guess. I put the bolt in and put a rubber spacer (again 160mm is a tad long, 150mm would be perfect) and just used a ratchet to screw it in. Is the view out of the back window great? No, but it beats the tire just lying in the back. I would love the tire to be side mounted on the bed behind the driver...but I don't know how to fabri-coble such a beast.
10: threw the engine cover away...I like to hear the engine.
11: Yes....I put a honda Trailsport badge on it. Its the version of the 2020 ridgeline that is really trail rated, but never made. haha...true unicorn
12: Put ceramic tint on the front windows. Its a bit less then the stock rear so nobody questions it and its a good look imho. I had it done professionally and it looks stock and has held up for 3 years with zero problems...and it really does block out the UV. They were also the same shop that installed the traxda lift, it was unique for them since they do a LOT of custom lifts...but never a ridgeline.
What I like:
1:Payload is great, I've really pushed it a few times with 1700lbs...but it handled it like a champ every time.
2:Towing is fine, small trailer for my daughters band, a few boats, etc. I do need to install a brake controller on the off chance it hits 4k lbs or more.
3:Ride is great...way better than most every truck I've driven
4:Handling is vastly better in the corners, I can really whip this thing into a tight turn and not end up plowing or bouncing like mad....this is NOT something you want to do on a taco/rangecolorado.
5:More height on the sidewalls makes a real difference in handling pot holes...ride is not as jarring. We don't have great roads here in Louisiana.
6:I use the in bed speakers waaay more than I ever thought I would.
7:Love the transmission
8:making people regret not getting a ridgeline after they borrow my truck for the weekend
9: its pretty damn unique in town, I mean ridgeline is already pretty much "wheres waldo?" in a sea of ford/chevy/dodge/toyota...but this puts it into the unicorn status
10: oh yeah..cabin space is awesome!
11: trunk really keeps the cabin clean...just toss it in the trunk!
What you need to accept:
1: acceleration takes a hit with more weight and bigger tires
2: gas mileage goes down. stock height/tires it was easy to get 25-29mpg, now its around 21. I drive like a monkey in town...17
3: Head unit is slooow. It doesn't crash/freeze...but it is slow. Basically android auto is your friend.
4: getting it aligned takes more than your usual shop. They have to work with lifted trucks...your normal shop has no clue on how to get this aligned. I took it to 2 shops, multiple times..fails. I then looked around for an alignment shop that knew wtf to do with modified trucks and it finally was done right.
5: eco mode in town is death...it takes so much off the acceleration that to turn into traffic is: ok..barely going..push more pedal...hmm still not moving...more pedal...damn they are right there! mash it to the floor!
I am totally that crescent wrench guy....I don't do anything that well, but can toss myself into most situations and make it work. This is my perfect truck in that it can do pretty much anything I ask it and my daughters are learning to drive on this as it has most of the modern safety features.

Subaru Crosstrek '14 passed inspection, recc $100 to change cabin air and engine filters, said no thanks. Went home bought and replaced, prior to the AC and heat functioning normally and now will blow air but not cold air? Could engine filter be not properly sealed cause this?submitted by ranchseltzer to MechanicAdvice [link] [comments]

2023.06.02 03:34 psyched_albatross 2014 Crosstrek AC not working, I am very confused
Hello everyone! I would like to start off by saying I do not know literally anything about cars, I am just a poor grad student who is trying to not have to pay $1000+ to have my AC fixed. I am sorry if this is slightly long, I am just very clueless.submitted by psyched_albatross to Crosstrek [link] [comments]
So, I drive a 2014 Crosstrek, and I’ve had it a little over a year. Last summer the AC worked relatively well, not perfectly, but mostly worked. This summer it will alternate between cold and hot, and sometimes if I hit the buttons a bunch or turn the AC on and off that helps I (the air also smelled a little musty, but I changed my cabin air filter today, so I hope that solves that). I’ve also realized the AC does better when I am driving faster. I wear business casual clothes for my job, and I got fed up being sweaty while wearing slacks, so I took it to the mechanic. The mechanic checked the entire system using dye and recharged the AC (it was around 50%) but could find no real issue. I then went down the rabbit hole of trying to determine what could be the cause of the weird AC problems.
To start, I found all the threads saying some compressors are faulty and it’s a known issue by Subaru. I checked my serial number and I think it is in the range that could be affected by this. However, the AC still works sometimes and according to google, if the compressor fully stops working the air won’t be cold at all? I then found other threads saying the issue could be due to a gap in the AC clutch and you must either remove a shim or add some shims. I looked at the front circle thing on the compressor (or it’s the clutch? I am so sorry I have no idea what I am talking about, I will attach a photo) and there are 3 spots for little plastic things, and my car only has 2 things in the spots. Would this effect how the AC clutch engages/works? Could this be part of the issue of why the AC sometimes won’t work or stops working?
I hope this makes literally any sense and I appreciate any insight people are able to give me. I simply know nothing about cars, and I am really struggling! Thank you!!!!
