So update on my 2007 Accord.
I got it back Saturday and they said they replaced the alternator and that everything is good to go. I picked it up and it started up "slow as usual" but it ran fine no issues.
As I was driving today I felt the car shake for about a split second almost like a misfire but that was it. It caught my attention and I kept driving. About 5-10 minutes after that the engine light came on. I'm like ok here we go again.
I took it to Honda and the lady in Service said it wasn't serviced at Honda they sent it somewhere else to get it done. I thought thatcwas kinda weird, but ok. Regardless they said they couldn't do anything until Wednesday morning and could not even supply me with rental today because the "diagnostic specialist" (gotta love the title) isn't here to scan the car, but they'll give me a rental Wednesday and have the car fixed the same day.
So I'm not a "diagnostic specialist" but I have my dads code reader at hime and when I scanned it after I got home it gave me code P0420. I googled it and it said:
a bad O2 sensor can cause a P0420 code.
The used car manager was saying something about a possible sensor but he had a very thick accent so I did catch everything he said but it sounded like he was trying to give me the run around.
On the way home I felt 2 more small "stutters" from the car but nothing more. Needless to say I don't like driving with the engine light on not knowing if more damage is being done.
