Honda Civic runs with a full tank (10 gal.) of gas but when the fuel level gets down to 2.5 gal. of gas remaining, the car cuts out and will not start up. When it gets close to this lower fuel level it starts to cut out at stops but will start up again.
Fuel relay + ignition checked out O.K.

In Bellevue for the first time. Car will run with no problem when you push it to start, but will not turn on with the key. Lights and all are working. Brand new battery

My 4 door DX received a good wallop on an icy interstate to the driver's side door/front wheel area. I think the car is a little narrower there now as the left wiper arm contacts the cracked windshield, the dash plug in the center-front popped out, the hood release is quite closer the centerline of the vehicle, the steering column is almost an inch closer to centerline, the driver side doors do not come close to closing and even overlap each other some, the driver's front wheel has a camber of 20-30 degrees. This was a great-running 34mpg car. Can it be made safely driveable again (for less than the cost of replacement $1400-$2000)? Can I slidehammer it to some degree of its former self? Don't even really need it to seal up completely (other than the windshield).

The Horn doesn't work at all. There is no sound made, not even a clicking noise. The fuse descriptions don't mention the horn and everything else works (lights, blowers, etc.).

I am trying to enter my 1989 Honda Civic DX but your drop down window doesn't go that far back..........

I have this car for 11years now. The problem is the distributor. The oil going inside the distributor from the engine I replace the o ring & the distributor cap rubber gusket but oil still going inside the distributor so that the reason my car stop when is in motion & can't start anymore if you don't remove the oil from the distributor. Sir, should I change the distributor a new one. Thank you so much sir, for your very kindness.
