#5106 of 5207 95 Civic LX cold engine problems
Aug 07, 2006 (5:53 pm)
What causes my 1995 Honda Civic RPM to go down to zero when you start the engine while still cold (e.g., in the morning after the engine had been off overnight; or after leaving it in the parking for at least 8 hours). After engine gets warmed up (50-60sec) it runs excellent. Took to a dealer for diagnostic. They said bad fuel injectors, do not hold a fuel pressure and flood the engine. Replaced them all. Did not help a bit. Car has 133,000 miles. Please help.

#5108 of 5207 95 civic dx coupe brake system problems
Aug 13, 2006 (3:38 pm)
i have a 95 eg2 coupe. it needed attention to its braking system. i have put new pads, wheel cylinders and hardware on the back. im also on my third master cylinder. ive bled the system so many times ive got new fluid coming out of the bleeder valves. i cannot build any pressure in the system however. the connections are all tight and not leaking. there does not appear to be any failure in the lines anywhere. any suggestions as to why i cannot get any pressure in my brakes? the only piece i have not changed yet is the proportioning valve. could my deficiency be explained by that valve? thanks for any help

I just replaced the fuel pump in my 94 honda civic. When i put the pump in and started the car i heard a bothering humming , like a vibration. My buddy is a mechanic he came over and listened. He told me that the fuel pump sounded bad. So i returned the pump and got another new one. I replaced it and i still get the vibrating noise. He's not sure what the noise is but we know it's from the pump itself. Does anyone or has anyone had this happen? Looking for answers.

I came to this sight looking for problems with current
models but find 5 year old cars with problems.I expect to have problems after 100K miles.I have had my CIVIC 2 weeks
and so far I get 28 MPG compared to 15 mpg for the Sorento I had.The negatives are it is noisy and rides rough but probably no worse than other sport tuned cars.The new
Rabbit is quieter and smoother but reliability has yet to prove itself.Equipped as the Civic EX it would be more
expensive and get only 22mpg.
#5111 of 5207 Re: 98 Civic Power Door Locks - after-factory stereo [steve613]
Aug 13, 2006 (6:34 pm)
Hi: I had a 1997 Civic with power locks. The car also had the remote keyless entry option that was a dealer installed option at that time. The dealer had to program the keyless entry by holding the key chain transmitter (key fob) up to the radio and pressing buttons on the fob in a certain sequence.
I don't know why, but the power locks were all controlled through the radio. And I'm pretty sure numerous other cars are that way too.
#5112 of 5207 Help With Noise Under My Civic
Aug 14, 2006 (11:06 am)
Recently I have been hearing a noise similar to that of a circular saw underneath my 200 Honda Civic EX. I have noticed that the noise only happens when I hit the gas hard and while the gear shifts up from first to second, second to third and occasionally third to fourth.
If I let off the gas and ease into each start from a red light or a stop, the noise does not happen.
Any idea what might be causing this problem? I am guessing it might be something with the transmission, but everything works fine with the transmission when I do not gun the gas.
Any ideas on this one?

Just a guess.

It seems pretty common to me. I've had to have more work done on this car than any other car I've had (several of which were Fords and Dodges ). I had to have both front struts replaced within the first 30 days. Since then, I've had lots of power steering problems. It's a nice car, but not worth the hassel for me. I'm already trying to trade it in or sell it and get something else
#5115 of 5207 Gas Tank Lid Cable Broke
Aug 15, 2006 (3:41 pm)
I have an 01 Civic, which needed a new gas tank lid cable (lid won't pop open when the lever from inside cabin is depressed). The replacement was done in March 2005. This week, the 17-month-old cable is not functioning. This is strange when it comes to Honda parts, which the dealership only guarantees labor and parts quality up to 12-month. It cost me $100 to fix it the first time (2/3 is labor cost).
Has anyone out there experienced this quirky defect?
