1999 Honda Civic LX

fuel injector skipping at low idle what can it be?

My Honda rattles when I go over "down" bumps. I took it in for repair and the mechanic couldn't find the problem but did replace the front ball joint thinking that may do it. It didn't. It's possible after reading some of these answers that it's the muffler strap or Engine mounts. Any other ideas before I have a new mechanic look it over for me?

Auto Zone's advice is: Failed ELD (electric load detector), what should I look for? Where is the location of the ELD?

99 honda civic dx 4dr keeps overheating.... i've replaced the thermostat and a leaky hose and recently the fan quit coming on and the lower radiator hose is not even warming up. the top hose is blazing hot however and I even rigged the fan with a switch to see if the fan was the problem and it is not there is about a 140,000 miles on it and i don't believe the water pump and timing belt has been serviced could the pump be the problem???

i had a new radiator installed a few months ago and the car was running ok, with the radiator maintaining the antifreeze at the full level. Then I brought the car in for a tune up at another location. The mechanic said he checked all of the fluids, etc. Within a week, there was a steaming sound and fumes started to come out of the engine area. I checked the radiator and the fluid level was really down. After I put antifreeze in, I checked with both mechanics. The first looked at the bottom of the car and said there was no leak (no diagnostic check was done) and suggested I just put antifreeze in and it should be ok. The second said they had to look at it to determine the problem. I brought the car in for inspection. They said it might be a blown head gasket and would not comment further.

Please advise what should be done here. Tx.

How often is it necessary to cange the timing belt & water pump. My car is a `99 Honda Civic with a little over 108,000 miles on it. They've each been changed with the last 5 or 6 years

I wanted to know, how much will it cost me, if i get my breakes checked, AC checked, as it does not have gas in it, and is not working and regular check up of the car, as I am gonna drive it for 1800 miles in the next week.

Also, suggest me the cheapest repair places as per rankings in Lubbock, Texas.
Thank you.

If the A/C cools intermittently, is there potentially a "switch" problem with the compressor. If so, where is it located and can it be changed inexpensively?

Air conditioner started blowing cool air instead of cold.
Had it checked and the mechanic said that every thing was ok and that it is probably the computer.(or maybe a loose wire). He said that a referb. computer would be around $800. The freon and compressor were fine. Any ideas?
