  1. I just received a letter today from FCA informing us of Catalytic converter problems with our Journey. Has anyone else received this? Hank
  2. Engine tick

    I did this repair on my 2014 van. Just one rocker failed the others were still in good shape so I left them alone. The hardest part of the job was getting the rear cover bolts off. They and the wiring are tight at the firewall. Hank
  3. Actually I just got a notice in the mail today asking me to bring it in to have a new catalytic converter and a software update installed. This car is smog tested once every 2 years and easily passes. I'm not understanding why this is needed? Hank
  4. CEL....no code reader

    Is it possible to get the codes with out a reader. My 2014 ram van still allows the key dance method. Hank
  5. Need to attach front license plate

    Here in Canada the front plate is attached directly with self tapping screws no bracket needed. Hank
  6. Water Ingress? How?

    We had a 2004 Malibu that had a chronic water leak into the trunk area. After the local dealer failed to repair it. We used a garden hose to find the cause. Turned out to be a seam wasn't sealed. Silicone sealer fixed it. Hank
  7. Heat shield ??

    It's located between the muffler and the spare tire. On the plastic part.
  8. Heat shield ??

    That is the shield riveted to the plastic part that surrounds the spare tire. I reattached mine with black zip ties. It falls off after the steel rivets rust away. Hank
  9. Thanks for coming back to give us an update
  10. rear alignment problem

    Since your tires are wearing evenly I wouldn't worry too much about it. See what the dealer that did the work last time has to say about it. It probably is still within limits some shops like to push parts. Hank
  11. Check the wires in the rubber sleeve at the top left of the rear hatch. The wires are known to break there. Hank
  12. Hello from Cambridge ontario canada

  13. Engine overheated

    Headgasket, jumped timing, lots of possibilities Hank
  14. Engine overheated

    Time to have a professional mechanic diagnose this, probably better than just throwing parts at it. Hank
  15. I installed Pioneer Ts-a6966r 6 x 9 speakers into the front doors of my 2013 without any problems. Also upgraded the dash speakers wih1" power acoustik tweeters. I was looking for a way to mount them so I used a hot glue gun to glue them to the top of the old speaker. Huge difference in sound now. Hank
  16. check engine light

    Could be as simple as a loose gas cap. Hank
  17. P2305 and 2311 codes.

    I found out the hard way that the 2.4l is very fussy on spark plugs. Put in the factory recommended plugs, check the bottom of the coils for carbon tracking in the rubber boots. Hank
  18. 2012 2.4L jerks in 4th going uphill

    My 2013 used to do that and also when doing a quick stop and go at stop signs. It went away when I put the new factory old school copper core spark plugs in. Hank
  19. 2012 Journey SXT

    I am pleased with my 2013, my wife and I have had only a few minor issues Hank
  20. Complete Frt End rebuild

    Sorry to hear about this, I hope Welland Honda resolves this to your satisfaction. Hank
  21. Complete Frt End rebuild

    Have your own mechanic trouble shoot and pinpoint the cause. Then go back to the seller and either have them fix or pay. The Journey is known to have some suspension noises. Hank

  23. Oil Extractor?

    I can easily change the oil and filter without lifting. I just put a piece of cardboard down to slide on and can reach without any problems. Why make it more complicated than that? Hank
  24. Burnt Master Switch

    Nope no window problems
