Honda Civic/CRX/del Sol 1984-1995 Repair Guide
The original equipment radio has a coded theft protection circuit. Before beginning removal, be sure to know the code for re-installation. The code is erased whenever the battery is disconnected or the No. 32 (7.5A) fuse from the under hood fuse/relay box is removed. When power is re-connected, the word "CODE" will be displayed and will require entry of the 5-digit code for that particular unit.
All SRS wire harnesses are covered with a yellow insulation.
Remove the center instrument panel by removing the four philips screws on the top and sides.
Disconnect the 4-pin connector from the cigarette lighter.
Remove the two screws, then disconnect the 16-pin connector and the antenna lead.
Carefully pull the radio/cassette player out.
Plug in the 16 pin connector and install the two retaining screws.
Plug in the antenna lead, the cigarette lighter and carefully install the unit.
Install the center instrument panel. Re-connect power to the car, and enter the 5-digit theft protection code for the radio/cassette player.

a "puh puh" huh?
maybe there's a hole in the muffler? can you look under the vehicle and determine if there are any holes in the piping, cat convertor or muffler?
#3428 of 5207 Cold Weather Engine Whine
Feb 03, 2005 (5:35 pm)
My 1998 and my daughter's 1999 Civics developed an engine whine that sounds like a whisper jet taking off. I just had my timing belt and water pump replaced and that did not solve the whine/squeel problem. It is not the sound of a slipping belt, and not the typical sound of bad bearings. Sounds like it is coming from the engine. It can happen accelerating/decellerating/putting clutch in/not putting clutch in...it can happen anytime. On very cold days, it continues for 45 minutes til I arrive at work. On cold days, it goes away once the engine is totally warm. On warm days, it does not occur. By the way, this car has had regular oil changes and scheduled maintenance.
Anyone have similar problem? Anyone know or want to speculate the cause?

The first things I would do are:
Step 1. If you are in a cold climate, put in a bottle of "dry gas" to rule out water in the fuel line.
Step 2. Although you correlate the sound with the clutch, I think you can safely rule that out. When the cluch goes, there is normally a high-pitched ring (throw-out bearing typically) instead of a puh-puh sound.
Step 3. Check your fuel filter for restrictions since the problem goes away at full throttle and lingers at idle(although you indicate that regular maintenance has been done and I assume that means the fuel filter also).
Step 4. Too technical for me.

I do know a little about mufflers... so no. I can differintiate between the sounds. I have an after-market exshaust system and I have had it re-done a few times because of problems. THIS however is something else.
Thanks for your help, I appreciate anything people are willing to help me with.
Oh yea... the puh puh is kind of like a mini-backfire to maybe make the sound a little more understandable...lol.. what can I say I'm not a car, I can't make car sounds.. lol. thanks.

hey thanks for the help! I will give the list to my boyfriend
Let him figure it out. lol...
I think it might be a sensor or something, but the check engine light isn't coming on so I'm not sure...
And the only thing about the clutch is just when I push it in to take the car out of gear, I agree with you, it has nothing to do with the clutch.

#3433 of 5207 turn signal problem
Feb 05, 2005 (3:30 pm)
I have an '02 Honda Civic LX. Recently, the turn signals stopped working. The fourways worked, though. I pulled the fuse for the turn signals and it was blown, so I replaced it. It blew that one as well, but I tried once more. The turn signals worked for a couple of days, but then the fuse blew again. All 4 bulbs work fine. What could be causing this?
Please email me at RACexploreaol.com if you have any ideas. Thanks.
