Focus T-stat housing
A common problem with Focus coolant leaks is the thermostat housing
cracking. Just changing the thermostat won't fix it. You have to change
the housing as well. Here's how to do it.

Inside My Odyssey Transmission - EricTheCarGuy
I would hardly call this video complete but you did ask me to make it for
you. As of this writing the transmission is shifting fine however the
light for the TCC came up and I haven't had time to look into that yet.
It's funny though since it does appear to be working fine, it might be a
loose connection or some other issue but like I said I haven't had the time
lately. Perhaps I'll do an update video with what I find. I guess the big
question would be if I would do this again and I would say that I might,
but only on my car not someone else's, it's a lot of work to get one of
these out without a lift or other useful equipment like a transmission
jack. Anyway enjoy the insides of a Honda automatic transmission as I'm
sure you won't see it often.

with your vehicle's repair manual for testing parameters. Don't forget to
wear safety glasses!
The EVAP canister purge control volume control valve is operated by a step
motor for control of flow rate of fuel vapor from EVAP canister. Each time
the valve opens or closes to change the flow rate, an on pulse is issued.
When no change in the flow rate is needed, the valve remains at a certain
opening, hence no pulse signal output is issued.

If you have a Check Engine Light on for Emissions (Such as P0446) this
could help you! Remove the lines by squeezing the clips, undo the 3 bolts
holding the unit up, and undo the electrical connector. Use carb/choke
cleaner to spray down the parts and to dissolve the dirt and grime, let
parts sit for about 1-2 mins, then reinstall!
