#291 of 401 Rear Torque Mounts, front sway bar bushings, emissions cleaning
Jul 05, 2009 (2:26 pm)
Upon going for a routine oil change, my mechanic told me that my 2000 Honda Civic EX coupe needed new Rear Torque Mounts, front sway bar bushings and an emissions system cleaning. The car has 74,700 miles. I do not hear any symptons from the car when hitting bumps or making corners. I've never hear of these parts needing changing before. I've never even heard of an emissions system cleaning. He wanted to do all this with a coolant flush for 800 bucks. These seems like excessive and needless repairs, especially since the car isnt showing any abnormalities. Has anyone come across these issues and have any advice, I asked another mechanic and he told me "what the hell is a rear torque mount" he used to work in a honda service shop with a dealer in NY. thanks

#295 of 401 2005 alternator
Jul 23, 2009 (9:26 am)
I own a 2005 Civic VP. I absolutely love the car and it has been extremely reliable even considering that it has 220,000 miles on it now.
The "Battery Light" came on indicating that the car wasn't charging properly. I feel pretty certain that it is the alternator because I can run up the RPM's and the light goes off. The belt is tight...maybe 1/4 inch movement.
My question is for someone with limited mechanical experience how difficult is this to change in one's driveway? Is there a website that I can visit that will offer step by step instructions?
#296 of 401 Is this bumper damage something I can DIY?
Jul 28, 2009 (12:27 am)
You can see the edge is detached and the bottom bent; I'm more concerned about getting the edge hooked back under. I found a replacement bumper for only $50 - repair places are quoting $500, which is my deductible. There's a picture at http://www.darkrhetoric.com/honda.png 2004 Civic EX. Thanks!
#297 of 401 Car turns over very slowly - barely starts
Aug 04, 2009 (5:00 am)
My 1998 Honda Civic barely turns over when starting ... But not all the time.
Sometimes it starts up just fine. To me it sound like a dying battery but I took it to AutoZone and the battery and charging system are just fine. The guys said maybe the starter is beginning to go ???
Any suggestions woudl be greatly appreciated !!
#298 of 401 low fuel economy
Sep 10, 2009 (11:49 pm)
i have a EK3 - 2000 Civic (D15Z4 Engine), Automatic. It has done 104,000 KM. I bought it about 3 months back.....
Changed the timing belt, tension, oil seals, filters, shocks, cleaned the injectors, tune up .. all from the Honda Agent. But it not doing great on fuel economy.......Only does about 7.5Km to the Litre...
U.S. 17 Miles per Gallon
U.K. 20.42 Miles per Gallon
By the way.. the tyre size is 185/65R14 .. Stock size was 185/70R13...
When all of the above failed... the agent plugged the computer & checked the ECU & other settings.... the guy who did the test said the Injectors are open (when idle) for about 3.4 to 3.5 ms... he said that looks to be the issue and the normal range should be 2.6 to 2.8 ms.......
I need your help..........
#299 of 401 97 Civic passenger door lock
Sep 11, 2009 (4:33 pm)
I have electric locks and the passenger side will only unlock when I use the key--not when I use the automatic lock/unlock on the driver's side. In fact it is really hard to manually lock or unlock it using the post/button whatever it is called. Any ideas?

you might want to look into the door lock actuator. That had problems before on previous civics i've had from the 96-2000 model range.
