I'd call it a perfect score 8 for 8. Ten+ years on and they're still around, Original plugs
Wow , every plug was seized and broke off and required extraction tool. Did you ever try Sea Foam fogging it through the intake ,then let it sit overnight , then run it and get it good and hot before removing those plugs ?

I figured it was going to be rough one. It had partially plugged cats, from all the random misfires I would guess. A few coils had already been replaced.

I got this one a few weeks ago. A 2001 Honda CRV with multiple misfires and the customer has the Auto Zone solution. Replace cylinder head ??. The common tune up parts already been replaced. It seems most of the ASE techs surveyed don't realize these things have solid lifters. Big Data gone awry, garbage in, garbage out. If I was ASE I wouldn't lend my name to this kind of nonsense.

If AutoZone knows how to fix it why didn't they...

Oh that's right they only sell parts!!!

As for ASE... Well they added testing and certification for parts resellers. So now there Experts Too...

Adjusting the valves was the fix. I work a relative compression test in early on any drivability diagnostics. If a problem looks present, then follow that up with a leak down or running compression test or visual inspection. The valves were tight. Interesting though that now trim codes were present, maybe the PCM shuts the fuel off when a misfire is present and goes open loop.

Doubt it , just random people out there trying to answer others questions on that site. The more free information out there the better. After a car reaches 10 years old the repair information should just all be out there for the taking. Other than specifications ,locations, wiring diagrams I often find You tube videos are often better source of information for how to component R&R anyway.
