Customer States: Honda Soda Can Tab Fix

As I removed the timing belt and balance shaft belt, I noticed this soda can tab holding one of the crank sensors in place. Apparently, the customer knew of this from a year ago when the balance shaft belt broke but couldn’t afford the sensor or a new water pump.

“Customer came in with a 2007 Honda Civic with an intermittent no-start condition and leaking water pump. As I removed the timing belt and balance shaft belt, I noticed this soda can tab holding one of the crank sensors in place. Apparently, the customer knew of this from a year ago when the balance shaft belt broke but couldn’t afford the sensor or a new water pump. While the customer waited to have the recommended repairs, the leaking water pump washed the bearings of both the tensioner pulleys. After replacing the water pump, both belts, both tensioner pulleys and the broken crank sensor, the customer was happy to have his little Civic back on the road. He promised to not go the cheap route again.”
