Hi, we are having problems with our 2006 civic hybrid. At times when you need to accelerate the car just will not. You might expect this with a hybrid, not much power, but this is a relatively new problem-the last year or so, and Honda is not willing to help us. We really feel that the car is unsafe to drive. Thanks for your help in finding an unbiased person to give us an idea of what they think the problem might be.
I have a 2004 Honda Civic with automatice transmission. When I get the car to about 30 mph, the engine loses power (Can't accelerate) and the engine knocks. What should I be lookin\g for to further diagnose the problem?
Honda has 240,000 miles with regular service done started sputtering and jumping while driving at various speeds. Distributer changed to include coils, egr valve cleaned, all wires checked for shorts, fuel pump checked out fine, ecu computer pulled and 2 others used to see if that was the problem, it wasnt. Spark plugs changed twice. Passed a compression test with flying colors. Engine light never came on and problem started randomly, and continually got worse. On our 6th mechanic (who is a wonderful retired Honda mechanic) and no one can find the problem. Car starts fine, no other electrical problems that have been noted. Any ideas?

My 1990 Honda Accord shakes violently when I press the brakes. I already know it's not the brake pads or rotors because they have been replaced. Someone told me it could be a CV joint (because it also clicks when making left turns). Could someone please tell me all the possible things it could be?
Whenever I am idling (such as during heavy traffic or when the car is on but in park) my car will begin to overheat, and I have to turn it off. I've had a sensor and the thermostat replaced, but they only worked for a few weeks and my car would start to overheat again. I don't know of any trusted mechanics. Can anyone help?

I am looking for instructions on how to remove the power window switch assembly from my dashboard. My driver window will go down, but I have to jam a screwdriver into the right side of the switch to get it to go back up. First I want to see if I can get the switch apart and see if I can either clean contacts, or some how repair it. Also if anyone knows where I can buy a new switch assy for less than $180 that would be very helpful...
($180 for a switch?! ugh)
[edit: I'm not in NY, I'm in Canada, but this thing requires a *ZIP* code...]
Update: So I dove under the dash and figured this out myself.
Solution: the face panel is held by retention clips, I used my pocket knife to pop it out. I had to remove the panel under the steering column to disconnect the dimmer control, as this was holding the panel on the opposite side as the connector for the switch assemlby (this sticks out the right side and locks it in). I promptly cut the ziptie that held the dimmer wires in so far under the dash.
After disassembling the switch assembly I found there was a lot of carbon (I'm guessing) build up on the contacts for the driver window switch. I cleaned all contacts with rubbing alcohol and a cotton swab, and now the switch works 95% if the time. once in a while I have to push it to the left slightly to raise the window, but thats not too bad. And is better than spending $180 on a new one!
Disassemble switch: Do not try to remove the backing, it pointless and the second layer (which has a small circuit board soldered on) wont come apart.
All you need to do is lift the rubber shroud under the switch itself, and pull the pin from the left side (try pushing from the right).
CAREFUL it may pop apart, there are two spring loaded finger-like retainers that are also held by the pin, under those are some copper rocker style contacts. Remove and clean these. Putting it all back together was slightly annoying but not too hard.
The drivers seat stopped moving forward or back. It sitll moves up and down. It stopped working a few months ago and then out of the blue it started working again. Now it has stopped again!

I'm in the process of changing the Distibutor Cap and Rotor on a 1998 Honda Civic LX and all was going smoothly until I attempted to remove the old rotor. I can not get the set screw out. I don't want to strip the screw or put too much pressure on the shaft. I'm desperate for any suggestions.

1995 Honda Civic, auto transmission, recently in the shop several times for new radiator (twice), water pump and timing belt. Drove it OK for about one month and then while driving it suddenly quit running. After letting it sit I was able to get it started, but it quit again. Not the battery or electrical since radio, lights and fan work. It's been suggested it is a sensor or maybe the fuel pump. Car has less than $150,000 miles, but have already put $1200+ into it. Any ideas?
