Noise comes and goes. Loudest in lower gears and in downshifting. Once it starts, it can be heard when shifted to neutral, but stops once clutch is depressed. Often clicking noise can be stopped by depressing clutch and re-engaging gear. Clicking is not loud. Does not sound like a mechanical grinding or rubbing.

Was told by mechanic that one of cylinders is low on compression. Said most likely scenario was that it would take a valve job to repair. Estimated cost at around $1,300. Seems a bit on the high side. Wanted to know what the average cost for this repair is to determine if this is reasonable.

I have a 1998 Honda Civic LX and was told by dealership that rear control arm bushings needed to be replaced. Was trying to lookup estimated cost for this type of repair on repairpal but it was not listed. Thought it might be same as ball joints.

In my 1998 honda civic i got engine light
on. During starting it give some abnormal
noise also. I check the code and find out
code P0301 (Cylinder 1 misfire). I replace
all four spark plug. Now engine start
smoothly, but still engine light is on
and shows the same code (P0301). What should
i need to do. Does engine light turn off by
itself? or i need to reset it with OBD scanner?

Engine squeels slightly when the car is in neutral and high pitched squeel disappears with the use of belt dressing. If the car is in gear, noise returns and increases with increased RPM. The car has 185K miles on it. Timing belt was replaced at 125K. When noise first appeared AC was NOT on-rarely use AC.

TO REPLACE IT

One mechanic told me I need to replace 4 mounts and another mechanic told me that they do not need to be replaced.

FOR SOME REASON I GET THE WIREING TO DO THE FULL TUNE UP(98 HONDA EX)...BUT THE WIRING DON'T CLICK ON THE SPARK PLUGS. THEY DONT REACH ALL THE WAY FOR SOME REASON?? WHAT MIGHT BE THE ISSUE...

I have a '98 Civic with 180k miles. DTC 108 after warmup, the idle jumps around. It also seems to have some trouble coming down in rpm (parked).

no cold air when a/c is turned on &
no hot air when heater is turned on?

I was told my rack and pinion bushing mount (hope I said that right) was bent and needs replaced. They showed me where it's bent and it very obvious.

Check engine came up. I reset it with the ODB diagnostic tool then it comes back.

devo cambiar el compresor o solo la polea

Does anyone know of any honda vehicles that require a timing chain, as opposed to a timing belt?? I'm interested to know the year and make of these hondas because I want to purchase one without a belt so that I don't have to replace it.

when i got the car it didnt have a belt i change the compresser now need to put belt on
