Aug 17, 2005 (9:30 am)
I have a 1997 Honda Civic LX-Same thing..car is great, but have AC issues.
My issue is kind of the same as janeway1, except it is semi-cool in the morning and late evening, but the afternoon it blows....HOT air. I have had several people look at it and they checked everything they could and said the compressor/fan doesn't turn on...they said the same thing about my computer...
Any luck on either of you finding relief..I live in Phoenix, AZ and IT IS REALLY HOT here.

Hi, Thank you for your suggestion. I took the car to the dealership, they inspected, told me nothing is wrong. However, at the same time, I test drove another civic at the dealer's lot, didn't have the drag feeling at all. then I made an appointment with a regional honda service personel today. we both test drove my civic and his civic. he admitted that my car is obviously a little tighter than his. but still didn't think its a problem. Now, he suggest to make another appointment witht the dealership, just to double check the brake and stuff. Getting frustrated.....
Any one here experience the same problem as mine?

The Fan??? I haven't turned on the heater. Are you asking if the heat blows on the other selections? If it is the 'fan speed selector' is that expensive to repair?
Yes, the question is: Does the blower behave the same without the a/c on, or with the heat on? You saying that the fan does not blow at fan setting 2. Does the fan blow when you don't have the A/C button pushed? Does it blow when you have "fresh air" or "recirculation" on? If the answer is yes to both, then it is the fan selector switch, not A/C.
I don't know about 98, but 99 had a digital voltage regulator. The transistors would burn out sometimes. The actual knob is just a "clicker," the transistored voltage regulator is near the fan. You would need a HELMS manual to do the repair your self. The part is about $30-$50 from online Honda parts dealer.

I went to another website and found that there are several people with 1995 Honda's that have the same issue. The problem seems to be with the HVAC control panel. The recommendation is to replace it. It happens to be on back order from the factory. Go figure.

I had the same problem with my 93 Civic with 220,000 miles on it. Try a new ignition key. I had new key cut and it works perfectly. Mine was cutting out with a half of tank of gas. I was also having symptons of a main relay going bad. The new key fixed everything. The original ignition key was worn out. It's worth a 2 buck try.
#4127 of 5207 Cracked Exhaust Pipe
Aug 19, 2005 (12:19 pm)
I was recently driving my 93' Civic 4dr LX (Canadian model, I don't know what American model this is) in the mountains and bottomed out on a gravel road. I am by no means a mechanic, but from what I can tell, I have cracked an exhaust pipe. Is there any easy way to repair this myself, or is it best to have it looked at by a mechanic? I am trying to avoid paying an arm and a leg to get it fixed, and if possible would like to repair it myself. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Cheers.

sure just weld it up, unless it is the exhaust manifold itself. A muffler shop can weld a crack....but not a "crush". That would require cutting and piecing, which is probably more trouble than it is worth.

thanks for the help... now, what is a "crush" vs. a "crack"... and if i have a "crush", is it worth fixing at all, or should i just live with the added noise?

No, a crushed pipe needs to be fixed as it restricts exhaust flow.
