#67 of 410 Honda Civic 1993 Repairs
Aug 21, 2007 (2:37 pm)
My 1993 honda civic window stops at about one inch from the top. I think it will need a window lift motor. Anyone know how to remove and renew this motor? I also have a problem with it not starting all the time. I installed new plugs and wires with a new fuel filter, but this didn't help. Also had a fuel pump installed, still no help. Someone told me that if could be the pressure regulator valve. When I turn on the key and let it pump it will start. However sometimes when I turn on the key the pump doesn't pump and the check engine light does not go off.

For your no-start it sounds as if it could be an intermittent fuel pump relay problem.

this sounds like fuel pump, either the pump is failing or the wiring to the pump is failing, causing it to just stop momentarily. I think the pump is located under the rear seat, lift up the seat cushion and see if the wiring looks ok. It may be just a bad connection, 1st try unplugging it and plugging it back in. If that's not it, have the pump tested.
#70 of 410 2001 civic - problems with gauges
Aug 29, 2007 (6:23 pm)
My 2001 civic lx with auto trans -88000 miles.
I recently changed the power steering pump and since then I have the following problems:
on starting the odometer reads 888888, the tachometer drops to 0, the gear shift indicator blinks, fuel gauge becomes inacurate. The car runs normally except that the tachometer bounces from 0 to normal. Any sugestions of what is happening?
#71 of 410 Vibrating sound

Hi, My Honda Civic 2000 Model LX gives some pulsating/vibration sound at the rear. This is particularly when slowing down or making turns. Can someone guide what the problem is and the severity ? Of course, there is no obstruction on driving, just the odd feeling...thanks

Can you 'feel' the vibration in the brake pedal? or just hear that sound at the rear while braking or not?
If you can feel the vibration in the brake pedal while you are slowing down, then the problem is a warped brake rotor.
You could also have a defective tire.

No it's not in brake pedal, it's just at the rear. Technically, I should say the vibration sound occurs when turning/slowing. this means even if car is not braking, the vibration is there.

Why don't you swap the tires from front to back, to see if the problem moves forward, or stays in the rear.

I replaced the window regulator with motor. I purchased a used one from a local honda salvage yard. I also purchased a CD for this auto off ebay, BIG Help. I also did research with the honda cd and found that the main relay was bad. This was my starting problem. So if you have trouble with your vehicle I would recomend you purchase a CD for your vehicle. Thanks again, John
#76 of 410 Problem? or am I crazy?

I can't quite put my finger on it, but I think my 1996 Civic sounds and feels different from when I bought it. Like I think it's louder than it was when accelerating.
The main thing I'm wondering about is should the car always shift gears at the same speed? Depending on how fast I'm accelerating, the car doesn't seem to shift from 2-3 at the same speed twice. It's shifted as low as about 22 and anywhere up to 30.
I don't think I've had any slipping, and I think the fluid is okay. (Level looks fine, I can't tell any discoloration)
Especially after driving for awhile, I think it has less power than it should (I know it has none to begin with anyways, but it feels like less), and sometihng just doesn't feel right, like it doesn't feel stable?
So am I being paranoid, or is something wrong?
