Trailer Hitch Installation on Honda Odyssey

Actually, part of the reason went thru the journey of DIYing was also because of this drill – Installing Trailer Hitch. Again, did the huge amount of search the web and youtube video to know what hitch fits odyssey, how to install, and ordered the ramp, hitch at Amazon and tried to install it.

As usual, everything was smooth in YouTube, while there are so many dumb challenges at my end. All the video suggested me doing with 2 or more people, but I don’t have that luxury – no one in my house can help – so brought out home various size of boxes and used those to balance and attached one hole after another hole. Also, used Ratchet Socket Wrench to installed it but it only went into few rounds and half tightened. ๐Ÿ˜ฆ

So used my own ‘impact’ drill with socket but no luck -it was so weak only to make few more twists/advances, then learned that I need Impact Wrench ๐Ÿ˜ฆ

As it was already evening, I had to leave the hitch as ‘not to fall off’ level and Amazoned overnight delivery ๐Ÿ™‚ – This must be the Copang experience I hardly ever had ๐Ÿ™‚ and magically package arrived at next day morning 6AM.

However, when Impact Wrench arrived tried to use the Ratchet socket but learned this doesn’t fit Impact Wrench and actually it is not recommended to be used with Impact Wrench anyhow ๐Ÿ˜ฆ haha – so had to order another long Impact Socket set for Impact Wrench with same day delivery – ha ๐Ÿ™‚

Finally, all the bolt and nuts are 100% tightened – so wondered a bit on setting the Torque but as the car is old and I suspected some of miss-treading is there during install, thought this is good enough for me ๐Ÿ™‚

At the end dirty hands with some scratches, series of Amazon orders, and crazy searches on YouTube and Bing (Yes I work for Microsoft haha) mission complished ~80%: Now I need to unbox and install the ordered bike rack ๐Ÿ™‚

Rattling Noise on Car near the Foot Pedal

Since very end of last trip to Redwoods National Park/Oregon Coast, I felt some metal is clicking when vehicle’s speed is increased, but immediately disappear after the speed is up and more painfully irregularly.

So much of our freak-o-meter went up, the unlimited search on youtube was on. Metal Noise (when speed is up), Metal scratching when speed is increasted etc.. , then every different ones were suggesting break pad problem, transmission problem etc,.

Data science kicked in with extremely mental hypothesis testing ‘Does it make noise when it is uphill or downhill’, ‘Does it make noise when road surface is not bumpy or not’, then one great clue I landed was ‘It always sounds at 20MPH -40MPH. However, that theory was broken when I was testing on freeway it made a noise again around 60 MPH as well. Ah…

At the end of lengthy period of hypothesis testing, came to conclusion this mostly happens when RPM is passing thru 2,000-2,500 and less in the morning; especially when engine works one more step. Then I searched the web and youtube to learn this is more likely the problem of heat reflection metals around the exhaust system getting aging and loose and the vibration from the engine is making it “rattle” – glad it was not a break nor transmission problem ๐Ÿ™‚

Went to auto repair shop, and the mechanic simply screwed in one screw piece in the gap at the surrounding cover parts near the engine (Catalyst) and it was fine. His suggestion was using this as molding is the ultimate solution but it will be costly and time consuming ๐Ÿ™‚

However, that patch didn’t last long, and about a week later started to hear the rattling again. So decided to go more permanent solution.

So crazy DIY kicked in –

Ordered a ‘ramp’ as I don’t have the jack (and I have been in the need of something to put my car up for other reasons)

Looked at the area where the screw-patch was on – clearly gone ๐Ÿ˜ฆ

So followed one of the videos suggesting using the metal clamp to hold the covering tight – some suggested zips but clearly got to know that won’t last at here as it was extremely hot with simple driving.

At the end, when the ramp and metal round clamp arrived, put the car on the ramp, dig thru under the car (first time using the back to move around after highschool’s military training class) put two clamps with painful arms with the hope at least one will resolve.

At the end – perfect solution. The rattle is gone now, (although hurt my eyes as particle dust from the car hit my right eye; continuously pumping tears for few hours. (+ countless attempt to wash out with tons of water :))

Progressive Snapshot

Journey of 6 month driving surveillance ended and returned the device back to insurance company. – They are claiming I got a discount but realized have no way to prove back.. ๐Ÿ™‚

The renewal rate actually came in about the same price when I signed this up (which had the participation discount) but made me wonder whether this was worth of it….and also triggered me to think of total switch to Pay Per Mile companies…

WOW – This is a movie of the WOW.. maybe one of the best movie I watched in years.. Missed the prime time in theaters, so have been patiently waiting for the moment when online distributors started ‘renting’ ๐Ÿ™‚

Story has extremely detailed descriptions of auto industry’s business model between Ford/American and Ferrari/European – production efficiency vs. extreme craftmanship and those two faiths collided each other during the failed M&A attempt. This collision were faced off at racing field of Le Man. (Plus there is also contrast of corporate ‘white color bureaucracy’ and ‘blue color expertise/passion’ in the movie..)

Maybe the most stunning moment for me was Henry Ford II crying after the test drive by Shelby (I wish my daddy, he were alive to see this… (Youtube)

Anyhow perfect contrasts in storyline with unbelievable details and “like real” on motion filming and sounds – maybe this movie was more realistic than any other broadcast of racing I have ever seen..

Last word – how the hXXX ‘Parasite’ took over the best movie above this??!! Although being ‘Korean’, I didn’t watch Parasite as my taste of movie being always happy, bright and simple.. ๐Ÿ™‚





Do you name your car?


From the first car I owned, I have always had a lovely name for it.. but research from Costco magazine shows I am not alone.. and actually 94% of the owners gives a name ๐Ÿ™‚

Weekend project – replacing odyssey’s torn bumper cover – this has been torn for years and years and finally verdict was getting a new one. Torn bumper recovery was too much or work for me or might take too much time and money if I do it at body shop…

Color matching new bumper order from ebay merchant from Grand Rapids, Michigan + youtube educated skill = sort of success except one broken bracket for bumper holder (Amazon is bringing that for me.. ๐Ÿ™‚ )

Now, I became paranoid on any small rocks hitting the bumper..





Odyssey Sliding Door Roller Replacement


Finally, said good bye to robot dancing sliding door after studying several youtube videos on how to fix, -and the parts already has been in my hand for 10 months. ๐Ÿ™‚

Although there is every solution on youtube, anything hardly works 100% as explained – always something happens ๐Ÿ™‚ (This time, I lost my e-clip and had to rush to O’Reilly to find the replacement..haha

Among National Park Services’ descriptions on this area of the park, two statements caught my eyes after visiting here…:)

  • Many people consider this area the heart of the park. Massive mountains, active glaciers, sparkling lakes, hiking trails, and abundant wildlife make this a favorite of visitors and locals alike.
  • The access road into the valley is rough and potholes abound. If you are driving a vehicle with low clearance use extra caution.

Both are 1000% true. ๐Ÿ™‚ Getting here from entrance with car was a fun ‘drift’ of escaping potholes but it was a paradise and worth of having a night at here. Felt so lucky to get the last available cabin at here… ๐Ÿ™‚
