I have a 1991 honda civic manual trany. Last night while shifting from 1st to 2nd gear it felt almost as if my foot had slipped off the clutch. However the peddle was still down i was no longer able to shift at all. I am still able to get the car to turn on by putting the clutch down but other then that i can do nothing. Any Ideas as to what it is and how much it will cost to fix??? Any suggestions would be great.
#4329 of 5207 2003 Civic SI-clutch pedal noise
Nov 10, 2005 (9:44 am)
Hello, I have a 2003 Civic SI. I really do love the car despite the high insurance rates...however, the clutch pedal makes a dull clicking noise with a slight squeak whenever depressed. This didn't happen immediately, it started last year and the Honda folks said there was nothing wrong with the clutch, but they could lube it and the noise should go away, and it did. This problem occurred about maybe a year ago, and the noise has come back. The performance of the car is not affected, it is just an extremely annoying noise... Has anyone else had this problem and should I expect this to occur every year?? Are the Honda dealers going to lube the pedal once a year for as long as I have the car?

Check the level of your clutch hydraulic fluid to see if you have a leak either in the clutch master or clutch slave units. If they are okay but the fluid is very dirty, have it flushed out and bled and see how everything works.

I recently bought a 2005 Civic LX 4DR Sedan. I absolutely love the car except the audio system.
Can anybody please advise about the MP3/CD players and speakers that fits this car.

#4334 of 5207 Honda Civic burns oil
Nov 12, 2005 (4:37 pm)
How much oil should a high mileage Civic burn between oil changes? My 96 LX has 136,000 and uses up to 2 quarts per 3,000 miles. Is this normal. What should be the amount?

no that's not normal.. the normal amount is nothing burned at all. If you continue to burn oil, the catalytic converter will be plugged and oxygen sensors damaged, you're looking at over $1000 damage just from that. What you should do is go to a trusted mechanic and have them do a compression test on the cylinders.. One of the rings probably have failed, or the cylinders have opened up allowing you to burn the oil.. Have you noticed a "clacking" when the engine is cold.. the 96-2000's (among other years) had this problem.. It was called "piston slap" and it could lead to oil consumption (no matter what people say).. I would get your car to a trusted mechanic.. Sounds like engine work is in order..sorry I couldn't be of better news..

I totally disagree.
We are talking about a car that has 136,000 miles!
It is using a quart of oil every 1500 miles which is not a big deal at all. ALL cars use SOME oil!
How does a cylinder "open up"?
It is also possible the oil pan gasket is starting to leak a bit. At this point I would NOT worry but I would keep an eye on your oil level in case this worsens.

it's possible your PCV valve is sticking. this might account for high oil consumption. (google it).
it's pretty easy and inexpensive to swap out as a test. should be less than $6.00.
try for example:
