Most reported 2002 Honda Civic problems
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.
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.
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.
