2001 Honda Civic Problems
RepairPal has identified the most common problems with the 2001 Honda Civic based on complaints from actual vehicle owners. We'll tell you what the problem is and what it'll take to fix it.
Excessive second clutch wear (automatic transmission) can cause the car not to move and set a Check Engine light (MIL). Replacing the transmission is necessary when this happens.
Some Honda Civics have seat belt issues that may be covered under Honda's Lifetime Seat Belt Limited Warranty. Please contact your local Honda dealer to see if your seat belt problem is covered.
On some engines a sticking variable valve timing valve can cause the Check Engine light (MIL) to illuminate. Replacing the valve and a software update will address this issue.
On Certain models a faulty power window switch can cause the power windows to work or not work intermittently.
On certain models the drivers seat bushings can wear out and the seat can rock back and forth. Replacing the bushings are needed to repair this issue.
Certain manual transmissions can cause a clicking noise when turning right due to a reverse gear contacting other gears in the transmission. The transmission needs to be disassembled and new updated gears installed to stop the noise.
On vehicles that have a sunroof, squeaking can occur. Special anti squeak tape should be applied to stop the noise.
The air cleaner case is prone to cracking. This can make it difficult to remove the screws securing the cover, making it difficult to replace the air filter. Replacing the case is often necessary to address this issue.
Plugged moon roof drains can cause a water leak inside the car, usually over the head of the driver or passengers head when turning a corner. Cleaning the drains will fix this problem.
CVT models (HX and GX) have a shudder, judder, and noise due to a worn start clutch in the transmission. Replacing the start clutch is needed to address this issue.
