Bring it to a Honda dealer to have it fixed.
My god, man, you've saved a fortune on this car. What more do you want? Bring it to a good Honda dealer and have him do the job and look it over for other possible (safety)issues.
After 183,000 miles don't you think it's about time?

to k.m. of enfield (and duncan), a 13 year old car w/ 183,000 miles on it, that warps break rotors after having a proper brake job, probably needs to have the front brake hoses replaced. while they can appear fine on the outside, cracks on the inside can cause the hose to collapse and restrict the fluid returning to the master cylinder. that would cause the pads to stay applied, and cause the rotors to overheat and warp.

to j.b. of north granby, my girlfriend also had stalling issues with her '93 chevy lumina (car). it would happen shortly after starting to drive, it didn't matter if we drove right away, or let the car run until fully warm, it would stall when making the first left turn. after several trips to a few dealers, it was determined that one of the onboard computers was defective. it took the dealer several installations to get the car repaired since gm provided factory remanufactured computers thru it's dealerships parts departments. the first three replacements were also defective, but the service tech was correct in concluding that they were also defective, since everything else on the car was in good condition. with the fourth computer, the problem was corrected, and the car is still running fine now, as it approaches 200,000 miles. my advice, stay persistant in the dealer finding and fixing the problem. unfortunately, the best dealer service provider, parsons of farmington has closed now.
good luck, hope this helps.

If I were in Portugal I'd be drinking Port. Forget this guy.
