When driving on the freeway the temp gauge is normal but when I slow down or stop the gauge goes up to hot stay there for about 2 minutes and the heat stop working. I’ve change the thermostat twice but that did not solve the problem.

While driving my automatic, it did not want to go into the next gear as speed increased. Later that night, it would start up but not reverse or drive when put into gears. It would only ease forward as if it were in neutral. I checked the transmission fluid and it was quite low, so I put about 4 quarts of fluid in it. Since it began not reversing or driving, the battery has been dying. What is your professional opinion as to what may be wrong with the car? How much will it cost to repair?

one head light is out and I want to replace both head lights at the same time. there isn't enough room for my hand to get behind the bulbs and unscrew to pull out. what the trick?

I'd been driving all day & all of sudden the car wouldnt go faster than 5-10mph no matter how hard i pressed the gas. I was able to put into reverse but it did not provide enough power to back up a small incline. Once parked I turned off the car and then started it back up after 10 minutes. It now appears to be fine but the CEL is now on. Any thoughts?

My 98 automatic Honda cvic has abnormal shifting. What do I need to do to fix this problem

cold engine idles fine( but kinda hard to start) as it warms up it will bog down at wot and you need to feather the throttle to keep engine from dying.with iac valve disconnected i can goose the engine by hand but it bogs down when i plug it back in it runs worse.

Will a transmission flash on a automatic help it from shifting abnormally and delay shifts?

Someone hit and broke my rear tail light cover and although the bulb still works and is in tact, the entire tail light is now dented in an inch or so. There's now a huge space where it is supposed to align with my trunk making it hard for me to open or close. Just wondering how much it would cost to replace the tail light and pull it back to align with my trunk. Also wondering how hard it is to do so I can decide to try to do it myself or go somewhere to get it fixed. Thanks.

My 95 civic has been stuttering while idling or when I am just accelerating after a stop? I have tried fuel treatments in the past and it worked last time. But this time after a tank of gas that was treated, the problem is still there. The car runs fine when cool, and when cruising.



A few days ago, I noticed (the last time I had my car's oil changed (about a month ago))someone there overfilled the coolant! Then, today when driving it, all of a sudden it no longer blew hot air! It is not overheating and the blower is working fine! Any suggestions & is the overfilled coolant at all related?

using dealer programed spare transponder key, engine light comes on and car stalled when slow down at stop light. Key is cut a little off and sometimes not unlock the door. Not had problem before. Someone said could be dealer made a key that was off just a little. Could the issue be a bad programed transponder key that has intermitent issues?
