Before you disagree with someones opinion please read the review in its entirety. All three Civics have large doors, and offer handy access to well-shaped stowage spaces in back. Four adults can ride comfortably in the Civic; it will also accommodate two adults with three children. So I'm cheap so I went with the stick. For starters, clever engineering, good assembly quality and a comprehensive menu of standard and optional features create an entry-level car that provides more than basic transportation. How can this phenomenon be explained? One very strange problem with the car is that the check engine light goes on and off all the time.
I would recomend it to anyone if you can find a low mileage car. What year is the swap? Here is the thing with the Hx, it has a 5 wire O2 and all B series are 4 wire. Civics offer 12 cubic feet of luggage space and that can be augmented by folding down the rear seats. Better yet, these attributes apply to all Civics, regardless of equipment level. If you are having transmission problems with this car it is the starter clutch kit that needs replacing.
But there is another element that keeps the Civic on top. I now have 202398 miles on the car. I drive the car daily swapped for 2 years now no problems. Trust me it is a pain to try and rewire. I was told it might be the O2 Sensor before the Catalytic Converter, but after changing it, the problem remained.
As far as the intermittent check engine light, I often have to check my spark-plug wires, because the 4th? It's been a good daily to me over the 6 years and 52k miles. Depending on that, you may have some minor wiring to tackle. That could be a clue. TransmissionFilter selectedTransmissionList, transmissionTemplate ; } listingsSearchManager. Car might need a new distributor or o2 sensor if running rough in wet weather.
Also, you will need the rear motor mount bracket from a 99-00 si. Featured are some before and after photos, and photos I've collected over the years. I can live with the quirks at this performance level. I had the car for 5 years till I had my son. All sedans and automatic transmission-equipped coupes and hatchbacks come with power steering. The small Honda is not one car, but several. For the past two years, the Honda Civic has dominated the small-car sales charts.
Interior materials seem to have been selected with durability rather than maximum eye appeal in mind. SellerTypeFilter selectedSellerTypeList, null ; sellerTypeFilter. I'd read through our reference section before you dive into it Ok you need a few things. SeatingFilter selectedSeatingList, null ; seatingFilter. The pilot bearing and the throwout bearing are two different animals. It can be the stingiest of gas-sippers or deliver more performance than you might expect, depending on which engine is installed. This is when the throwout bearing is engaged and spinning.
By all means avoid the dealer for a repair they are twice as expensive as a regular mechanic. Some of the details that make the Civic appealing are also functional.

For Honda, the Civic is a trademark car with a successful track record extending back more than 30 years. It now has 150K miles on it and runs great. The very end of the transmission mainshaft is supported by the pilot bearing which is mounted in the end of the engines crankshaft.
Walkaround Honda is not a company to make changes arbitrarily. The integra rear mount will not work in your chassis. I did a b18b swap in my 98 Hx and a Vtec head is waiting to go on. The input shaft bearing is the most common failure in this trans, it is the 1st bearing on the mainshaft, but all the bearing should be checked for damage. I put 120k on the car.
But it was time to move onto something more modern, so I sold it to the 3rd college student in a row. No major problems with car at all. Against members of its class, the Civic has been the pick of the litter for several years. NewUsedFilter selectedNewUsedList, null ; newUsedFilter. I wish they still made them.
No mechanic has been able to figure out why. I used it for my swap but cant remember the name. The throwout bearing presses the clutch fingers and takes the pressure off the clutch so you can shift the transmission. Pockets and bins provide storage for small items. The low cowl and hood line combine with generous glass area to provide exceptional visibility for driver and passengers.
