The Honda dealer said I need new struts in front and new shocks in back, and alignment cost $1100.00. Another shop quoted me $866.52. I shopped around and some mechanics say I need 4 struts. I want to go with what the car is supposed to have. recommend shop??

adding quart /s in less than 1000 miles. had big service (timing belt, water pump, alternator belt, cam seal, oil pan plug, valve cover gasket, distributor cap and rotor, etc) at 104,000 miles. Still losing oil. Have changed oil and filter each 4000 miles but let oil get low twice and car recently overheated ;split radiator. Replaced with new radiator. Compression checked out ok. Running and sounds fine but still using oil and can't see where its going. not on the ground. miles 121,000 now. If shop didn't replace front main seal could that be prob? How costly to fix? Do the dye tests work to find leaks?

i am wondering if anyone can answer this question...
my car was recently stolen and recovered. there's no sign of ignition damage, but whenever i turn my car on but not to start it, i have no power throuh out the car. like if my car was off. could it be my ignition switch and cylinder?

My car is getting 25 mpg. so far I poured a bottle of cleaner into the gas tank (it was designed to be poured into the gas tank), replaced the spark plugs, replaced the air filter, and pumped up the tires. someone also recommended that i clean the mass air flow sensor so I bought a spray can of stuff to clean it with. the instructions are vague so I'm not sure how to clean it....any help would be greatly appreciated.

The Rear tire have repeatedly wear out prematurly. Have had them replace several times. Fronts last 2-3 time longer. Strange for a front wheel drive car.

When I turn the steering wheel, the vehicle makes a clicking noise. Is it CV Joints or Tie Rods? How much is it going to cost with parts and labor.

Need to replace front brake pads and fix rotors, But i don't want new rotors.

Catalytic converter

I have a 2003 honda civic that has just gotten a new battery and alternator. Recently a check engine code popped up saying clyinder 4 misfired. Asked the place where I went what that meant and they said it is most likely the spark plugs. My wife took it to work this morning and I went to drive it and now it wont start. It clicks once when I turn the key but wont start. it is a 2003 honda civic ex 1.7 liter. any ideas??

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

There was a recall on the catalytic converter when my 2000 Honda Civic was about three years old. Mine was replaced then. A few months ago the amber engine light came on, and the dealer said it's because the converter is cracked. I was not shown where the crack is.They want more than $600 to replace it. I also needed a timing belt at the time, so I got that done first. They said the converter could wait a couple months. It has now been 8 months and the amber light is still on.Now I would like to get a second opinion but one place wants to charge $80 just to look at it. Any suggestions?

When i turn the key in the ignition, the car does not make one sound, no lights come on, i cant even listen to the radio or make the windows go up or down. There is a gasket on top that I need but not the head gasket i was told, the gasket i need so oil doesnt spray out onto the spark plugs. There is oil on the spark plugs from that, which i know those cant get wet, so were thinking we have to get that gasket and new sparks..is this true? The battery in my car is new, 5 days after we bought the car the tranny blew out so we replaced that, and bought a whole new distributor system because we had problems with it starting again. Please help if you can, thank you.

We test drove a 97 Civic which shuddered briefly when accelerating from a full stop, each time. Otherwise it ran like a top. I've read that this could require cv joint repair, replacement fluid, or a new transmission. How can we tell?

Had head gasket replaced by ASE certified master mechanic, now engine codes are P0401 (insufficient egr flow), Catlyst, and O2 Snsr. I didn't notice any smoke when the gasket blew, but now, even after the repair, the car has hardly any power. The car is my wife's 2002 Honda Civic EX 1.7 Auto 4DR. Any qualified help is GREATLY appreciated.

Quarts of oil needed to change oil and filter in a 2009 honda civi ex?

How do you squeeze the alternator out from behind the engine? I've removed the bolts and wires but can't figure out how to get it out from behind the engine. I've got air conditioning so its in the back of the engine.

How much can cost to replace the rusted brake lines on Civic DX '96?

the driver seat frame is cracked and the seat is tilted

My ac belt is squeeking at start up and sometimes while I drive. How do you remove the transmission mount to replace the belt?

MY Honda Civic Lx is running hot. I think i need a new radiator. The radiator shop said i need a need a water pump. But i took it to a mechanic and he said i didnt need one. The Anti-Freeze is running out fast, but there is no leak.

Tonight, i parked my car at wawa, took the key out and it was warm to the touch. the metal park was yellowish brown. just happened for the first time. parked my car at home and took key out and it was warm again.

The radio, sunroof, and the locks all stop working at once what could it be? We checked the fuses and they was not blown what else could it be?

I had a simple repair done to the air conditioning. When I left the dealership, the check engine came on, and the engine began to putt-putt. It almost stalled and then it would gain power. I took it back to the dealership and now they tell me it is idle valve arm or something like that. The cost for the part is over $300 and the labor is 2 hours. Could this repair be this expensive and is this a legitimate repair?

when the front breaks are applied it sounds like something rubbing against each other. It is even making noise when the breaks are not being applied

after it's started engine will begin to sputter and RPM's drop almost to a stall then it will run up and idle fine. It may do this 2 to 4 times and then it runs fine after words.

How do I reset the maintenance reminder light?

my 95 civic ex redline at 6000rpm which it is to redline at 7200 rpm i tryed swicthing it with a friend but it still does the same

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.
