Or do I need to know the tricks of the trade? The vehicle was taken to the dealer, but the failure could not be diagnosed. The vehicle was not taken to the dealer for diagnostic. But in hatchback or coupe trim it's a sporty runabout. He found out that this was a recall issue. Both times car restarted easily. The failure recurred several times.
The approximate failure mileage was 144,000. The vehicle was repaired but the defect was not remedied. No warning lights on the dash came on. And the latest line of Civics seem poised to continue the winning streak. I finally took my car a 1999 Civic Hatchback to my mechanic. But there is another element that keeps the Civic on top. Now, we took it to repair shop and they couldn't get it to not start.
The symptom has been there and I changed several parts but never been solved. Replacement of the distributor is not difficult as it is held onto the cylinder head by 3 bolts and 2 wiring connectors that has to be disconnected. Thanks Mark Optional Information: Year: 1999 Make: Honda Model : Civic Engine : 1. She told me the car was not in a good condition but didn't give me a detail. If continuity does not exist, go to next step. The car had a mind of it's own. On all models, if continuity exists, check for short in suspect circuit.
While driving approximately 50 mph the vehicle stalled without warning. He couldn't see anything and of course he's not a mechanic. That makes it not only a prime candidate for new customers, but also a well-defined target for every carmaker playing in the same league. How can this phenomenon be explained? For the past two years, the Honda Civic has dominated the small-car sales charts. I never got a letter or mail of any kind stating there is a recall on this car's ignition switch. This is a huge safety concern, it can cause an accident. I believe this is a result of the faulty ignition switch which was recalled for similar vehicle models.
However before replacing the item, check if it is a fault with the wiring. If not in motion, car will just stall, and cars behind will rear end my vehicle if not paying attention. Prior to driving everything seemed fine. If the ignition switch is proven defective, they will reimburse all expenses but only after approval from american Honda for a second replacement. This happened twice, luckily on local streets and at very slow speeds. Against members of its class, the Civic has been the pick of the litter for several years.
The engine will also fail to stay started unless I turn the starter engine over a few times extra. The manufacturer was notified of the failure. Is there any way I could fix this? The failure mileage was 117,000. The contact stated that while idling at a stop sign, the vehicle stalled without warning. This was the start of many to come stalling out or several attempts at starting the vehicle.
. The vehicle was not repaired. Also, he said, I could pick one up from ebay or craigslist if my funds were tight. The failure mileage was 98,000. It can be the stingiest of gas-sippers or deliver more performance than you might expect, depending on which engine is installed. If resistance between specified sensor terminals is 350-700 ohms, go to next step.
If continuity exists, replace distributor ignition housing. When the key is turned to 'start', the engine starts but as soon as you released the key to spring back to the 'run' position, the engine would quit. For Honda, the Civic is a trademark car with a successful track record extending back more than 30 years. The contact stopped the vehicle on the shoulder of the road and was able to restart the vehicle. He tried starting the car and it started right up. It would only fit in one way as the key slot is offset.
In sedan form, it is a family hauler. The contact stated that while driving at various speeds, the vehicle would suddenly stall. 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. I researched this vehicle afterwards to find any recalls on it. I'm the 2nd owner of the car and I'm uncertain if this problem was ever fixed. I just got this vehicle from my friend and I am the 3rd owner.
Is a distributor hard to install. The radio, heater fan, brake lights were still working. Honda had replaced the ignition switch on recall back in 2003 by the original owner--I'm the second owner-- but now with over 200,000 miles the problem seems to have returned. The only thing you need to do after installation is to get a timing light to check if the ignition timing is correct. It is dangerous to drive this vehicle as a result of stalling out without any warning and at any speed where a crash is inevitable. How can I find out if this is reimbursable if it wasn't fixed in the recall.
