1999 Honda Civic Si Q&A
1999 Honda Civic Si Question: 1999 Honda Civic Si, it will not run after 45 - 60 min. drive. Why?
can someone help me please, well I had this problem for the past 3 years now base on my car. I own a 99' manual Honda Civic Si, once I drive it for a good 45-60 min. after the engine get hot, everything start to stop working. I mean the engine still running but once I step on the gas peddle, it will not move or go forward. All you can hear is the engine running loud, but will not move. Just can't afford to get it fix at the auto shop. I had ask a lot of people for help, but no one seem to know the right answer. So please can someone out there give me the actual answer. What cost the problem? - JayBone
So after it won't move you need to tow it, or wait till it cools down? How can you get to start it? I assume it has an automatic transmission - there might be a problem with the torque converter clutch solenoid - perhaps other problem with the transmission. Unfortunately because of the nature of the problem I don't think you can have the exact answer from here. You need to take it to a shop for a diagnostic. Zee - ZeeTech
well if its a si it only comes standard. as from the info that you are telling it seems to have a transmission problem. could possible be a flywheel problem were ( the flywheel has heat spots or glazed )the flywheeel will have to be replaced or it very well can be the clutch slipping when it warms up. either way i would consider going to get a clutch, throw out bearing, and a flywheel - Visitor
