My Honda Civic needs 4 new tires in a size 16. My friend has 4 new tires/rims in a 15. Can I safely use the smaller ones?

trying to buy gasket,dont know if one or two piece need to see picture

My car has been having an idling problem for the past few months. Whenever I am stopped at a light, stop sign, or in park, the engine rpm's drop to about 200-300. Yesterday, when parked-car was running, I heard a steady clicking sound from the engine. I popped the hood and found the sound was coming from where the timing belt is located. I got back in the car and gave it a little bit of gas increasing the rpms to 500. The sound went away. I heard the sound several times throughout the day when while in park. I only heard the sound at about 200 rpms.
I went to a local mechanic.I told him about the problem and he came out and listened to the car. He said that whenever the car is idling at that low of rpms the cam and timing belt have a hard time working and that the clicking sound was "normal" for that low of and idle. He then told me some things I could do to fix the idling problem. Is this clicking sound normal coming from the timing belt at low, low rpms???

Thanks

Automatic no reverse

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.

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.
