2001 Honda Civic Problems

Bad Engine Mounts May Cause Vibration, Roughness, and Rattle

Damaged engine mounts can lead to vibration and roughness felt in the steering wheel. A rattle in the dash and engine area may also be heard. Replacement of damaged mounts will commonly correct these issues.

Possible Shift Control Solenoid Fault

The shift control solenoid externally mounted on the automatic transmission (non CVT) can fail and causes a harsh 1-2 shift. Replacing the shift solenoid and flushing the transmission with genuine Honda automatic transmission fluid may eliminate harsh shifting characteristics. A broken internal spring can cause the same issue. If the shift control solenoid does not repair the problem, the transmission will have to be replaced. 

Hood Release Cable May Break at Handle

On some models the hood release cable breaks at the hood release handle.
