My friend told his girlfriend, who is going on a trip this weekend (she owns a 2000 CRV, I think), that before she goes she should have her headlight fluid checked.
She asks why. My friend tells her because if not checked frequently, the headlight fluid can get into the engine and cause the engine to blow up.
Worried, she asks how to do it, and if my friend can do it. My friend tells her you need to remove the back seats to get to the reservoir, but we need to go to the local spring first.
Again, she asks why.
Told her because headlight fluid is comprised of part water and part cooking oil, and that spring water is the cleanest water to use.
I also warned her that it should be checked constantly especially before a long drive because bad headlight fluid is a common problem in Honda's, and I told her thats why my old motor had blow - due to headlight fluid seeping into the engine.
At this point, she wanted to call her dad to make sure it hasn't already been changed. The message I got from her via text was:
"josh (my friend, her bf) had me worried cuz im driving to burlington this weekend with my friend and he was like u need to change it or bad things will happen. so i was like ok i have no idea and called my dad to make sure"
"I just talked to my dad about it and he said he changed it like a year or two ago he cant remember exactly when but he said it should be fine"
... I love the way her dad thinks.. lol
"I know nothing about cars its a good thing i have my dad and josh to worry about that kinda stuff for me"
.... She has been buying absolutely everything... She honestly believes there is a reservoir in the back of the car under the seats comprised of half spring water and half cooking oil, that leads to teh HEADLIGHTS, and that it needs to be checked often because if not it can cause the motor to blow.
I encourage everyone to try this with someone else though know.. post any results you get! lol
