A superb alternative to the high prices and lackluster service of the dealership, with a higher standard of quality and trust

Question Answered: 

Unfortunately, we would need to see the vehicle. The 2005 Honda Civic is not equipped with distributor ignition. The 1.7L engine is direct spark coil on plug. It sounds like there may be a fusible link burned out or alarm intervention in starting. This vehicle would require specific diagnosis.

Would need to observe to determine which ones would be required. They are rubber/rubber hydraulic and support the engine and minimize movement. Damaged mounts can cause issue with wiring and hoses/etc as the engine moves too much.

Unfortunately without proper diagnosis, it is hard to identify the concern. Could be a pressure switch, a solenoid or a wiring concern.

for the most part. having a lift makes access easier and assists in bleeding the air from the p/s system. also make sure if its something your are wanting to tackle yourself to use the proper fluid and replace the single use crush washers

Question Answered: 

Sounds like a lack of fuel pressure. i agree with the above mentioned items. curious why tank was replaced and not fuel filter- could be loose connection, kinked hose or damaged strainer intake on pump.

Question Answered: 

could have been just a dirty throttle body causing the throttle blade to stick, the same could have been for the transmission solenoid. if these issues persist, there may be an issue with the throttle position sensor for the p0120 code, and the p0770 could be also related to the throttle position sensor, based on the diagnostic information i am reading through.

removing the battery negative for about 10-15 min. should be sufficient to reset the computer stored codes

Question Answered: 

Issue is most likely the computer not entering sensor readiness status. it is the vehicle performing "self tests" to confirm sensor reading with what was imputed as required values from the manufacture. should take 50-75 miles, i have seen one car take over 130 miles to reach a state of "readiness"

Question Answered: 

there has to be some sort of sensor that is not reading properly due to possible defect. We don't work on alarm systems on German import vehicles, but the shop a few doors down does work on Mercedes and BMW. (949)888-8400 and ask for Martin
