I have a 1991 Honda Civic. I'd like to change the fuel filter. Do the in and out fuel lines simply "unbolt" from the actual filter? That's what it looks like to me. Can anyone walk me through the process? Thanks much.
I think you need to go out and buy a manual for your car. Chilton's or Haynes are only $20 at most auto parts stores.
You will need two wrenches to undo the banjo fitting without ripping the fuel filter off the firewall or damaging the supply lines.

I have a 98DX Hatchback. My A/C does not work. The compressor will come on if I ground it. Then I turn off the switch it stays on. It even blows cold. I unhook the ground that I put on it and it doesnt even come on if I push the A/C button the light comes on but no compressor. I dont want to have it hooked up manually because it will run all the time. Could this be a relay, or switch problem. Any I ideas. Thanks
You are either low on the refrigerant, or the low refrigerant switch is stuck.
#4147 of 5207 Optimizing Gas Mileage...HELP!!!
Aug 24, 2005 (11:20 am)
I've recently purchased a 2005 Honda Civic LX and I have no idea how to optimize my gas mileage...higher RPM's, lower RPM's, full tank, empty tank - I have NO idea??? My first tank seemed to have gone much further then my second tank and I have no idea what I've done differently?
I was amazed at how much information is available in these forums but I haven't found anything (yet) that helps me out on this specific problem. Does anyone out there have any suggestions? I'm a automobile novice (dummy if you may) and I need your help.
Thanks so much.

An '02 Civic LX 2 door with 13K miles just had the second window regulator replaced. Parts people say this is very common. Has anyone else had one of these go out? Has anyone gotten Honda to stand the repair a few months after the 36 month warranty ran out? I would expect this failure in a Yugo, but not a Honda!

car bucks while idling and starting out, also the rpm's will race up as you are driving at speeds of 35-45 mph

Where is the low refrigerant switch located? It is full of freon I had the system vaccumed and then recharged but still wont turn on. Is this a dealer part or can I get it at a local parts house.

I have a few questions:
What kind of noise does a blown strut make?
How much does a new front strut cost for a Honda Civic '02?
How much would be labor for installing this strut?

CO! CO! spells carbon monoxide. Any exhaust leak should be fixed! CO is a silent odorless killer, so don't take a chance. A bit late with this but just was browsing and saw it. Take care of yourself and your Honda.

I have a 1991 Honda Civic 4 Door DX and I have the same problem. The mechanic cannot figure out the problem (could be the starter switch or the starter ), so he has installed a diagonistic light which comes on everytime I crank the starter on. This hopefully will narrow down the issue the next time it happens. It has been a few weeks now and the problem has not resurfaced yet.
I will let you know if I find out, let me know if you were able to find out as well.
