Jun 15, 2005 (11:40 pm)
Hi there, i drive a 1992 honda civic si hatchback. On the back window i see their is a plug where i can put a little handle that i have seen on other hatchbacks. Unfortunatley i cant find what year or model these handles were put on. I talked to a local dealership and they were not sure either. So if anyone knows what year and model i can find these on so i can oder one please let me know. Thanks.

Mike, ask your mechanic about a crank-sensor wire. Your problem sounds similar to something I had. I had a timing belt changed last year and turned out the crank-sensor wire wasn't secured properly. Over time the timing belt wore through the crank-sensor wire. Once this sensor starts acting up, there is nothing to tell the computer there is enough air/fuel mixture in the chamber to fire the plugs to crank the engine. So what happens is the valve chamber over fills with fuel and floods the plugs. Basically flooding the engine and it will never start. Hope this helps.

Does the noise go away when you push the clutch in? If so, then it sounds like a clutch bearing problem which basically means your clutch is shot. The spinning noise you hear is the clutch bearing spinning because the teeth are worn. Once you push the clutch in, the pressure plate engages the clutch disk which stops the spinning and disengages from the trans so you can shift, once the clutch is released, the process reverses and everything is spinning freely again. To tell you the truth, I've yet to fix mine, it's a little annoying but I don't feel like putting another clutch in quite yet. I think a stock Honda clutch should only run you about 2-300 hundred labor included.

Tell me MAZ1120.. If it is the clutch bearings the problem would you have any idea how long the clutch would last, I had mine for about 6 years like that and still running without probles just the noice, and yes when I push the cutch in the noice goes away. but within the time the noice goes louder, at the sametime the noice I won't hear it but when I driving for about 20 mintus comes back...I'll have the clutch check. Thanks for the second tip.

#3901 of 5207 Re: check engine light is on [mnava]

I have a 99 Honda Civic CX hatchback with 79,000 miles. The car has been good to me for 5 years and now all of a sudden the "Check Emissions" light came on. Not the "Check Engine" but "Check Emissions"....it was at Napa Auto for 4 days while they were trying to diagnose the problem. First they thought it was a problem with the computer, then the wiring, finally they replaced the O2 sensor and gave me the car back. 4 days later the "Check Emissions" light is on again. The car also feels like it's going to stall at stop lights. I'm at my wits end with this car now! I just want to get it fixed!! I'm bringing it back to the shop again today so hopefully it will not take another 4 days to find out what the problem is and fix it. Is this car even worth it anymore? I was thinking of purchasing a new Civic coupe but after reading all the posts on this message board it seems like things are rough all over. Any suggestions or other experiences would be super helpful!
#3902 of 5207 Over Heating
Jun 17, 2005 (12:28 pm)
I bought a 1985 Honda Civic Wagon two months ago. The car has low mileage 101,000. My temp gauge went all the way to top last weekend. I pulled over immediately, so the car did not overheat, but the engine was very hot. I let the car sit for a while before I started engine. It started out cool, but guage eventually climbed to the top after 30 minutes.I had the car checked, and had to replace the Radiator Cap, Thermostat , Electrical Motor Fan, and had the radiator flushed. The mechanic checked the sensor and water pump which was fine. I am now driving the car, but temp gauge stays in the middle and sometimes it goes over the half way mark, but comes back to the middle. Should I be concerned? The temp gauge started acting up when the weather started to get real hot.
#3903 of 5207 97 Honda Civic Speedometer Problem
Jun 17, 2005 (3:11 pm)
My husband rear ended someone in our 97 Honda Civic. It sustained minor front end damage that we had repaired. But now the Speedometer is not working. It just bounces around instead of reading the speed. We were told it might be the Speed Sensor Assembly unit, so my husband replaced it. Well that did not fix the problem. Any ideas??? Thanks! ~Dani
#3904 of 5207 Turning Indicators
Jun 18, 2005 (12:24 am)
Folks - newbie to this board looking for help to fix my daughters 1976 Hondamatic (civic). Her indicators don't flash any more! They come on and stay illuminated but don't actually flash on and off as they should. The hazard warning system works perfectly and usually the indicators will work for a few flashes after the hazard warner has been on but then they just stay on.
I have checked and cleaned the switch on the steering wheel, checked the fuses, replace the little unit that does the actual switching all to no avail. All the bulbs appear to be ok although when the indicators are flashing the oild/generator lights on the dash do pulse.
Can any one help please?
