Squeaky noise started when I ran over a pothole
My 96 Civic has always started cold even after sitting for days in -30c weather. After it has warmed up it sometimes won't start for a few hours if I shut it off. If I let it idle it sometimes will perform poorly. It will still accelerate fine but there is a hitch when I push or release the pedal and if I try to hold the throttle open at any position it will hiccup badly. When this happens I can still rev the engine just not cruise and I have to drive like my mom. The car has never stalled while I've had it and will always idle fine.
How do I remove the ignition lock cylinder on a 96 honda civic. I removed the tamper proof torx but can't seem to get it out.

how could oil get into the water resevoir,what could of caused it.
engine hard to start. engine cranks over, when it feels that the engine is about to catch the engine feels like it is "jumping", after a while the engines catches and runs, sometimes it dies after about three to four minutes and sometimes it stays on. Sometimes when the engine is hot, it starts right away. I adjusted the timing, replaced a bad distributor, spark plugs, a shorted intake air temp sensor, and a clogged fuel filter. I visually check that there is fuel getting into the fuel rail filter.
a glass moving mechanism on a door stoped working
My car has always had trouble with the windows, they got stuck half-way frequently, I had it repaired at least 3 times. Now for the last few months, they do not move at all any more, except when I open the driver door all the way.
Any suggestions
my car is a honda civic 1996. the car kept shutting off at every stop sign or stop i made. the oil was low, so i added 2 qts. it started again but only made it down the road before killing at the next stop sign. we road a little further then it wouldnt accelerate over 40 mph and was making a clanking sound. the thermostat then shot up to hot and the car killed. one of the battery cables is loose, but i dont think it could cause all of these problems. whats wrong with it and how do i fix it??
I have a 1996 honda civic. It just quit while I was driving the other night. I had someone look at it. He told me that I ran it completely out of oil and that I would need a new engine now. But I haven't even put 3000 miles on it since my last oil change. I want to know why it would burn so much oil and if it is even worth putting another engine in it.
My Honda is a 1.6L and has been a pretty good car until here recently. I was pulling out onto a highway and the engine kinda bogged down a little, i pumped the gas pedal and it eventually took off with no problem. I was then drivng down the road about 15 minutes later and the engine bogged down again, cut off and i coasted to the side of the road. Now the car will start when you disconnect the air filter tube from the throttle body and cup you hand over the inlet just right....sounds wierd i know but it does help it start. After it starts it idles miss or jerk but when you push the gas pedal down about halfway it loses all throttle response and just dies. If i apply the gas real slowly you can rev it up as high as you want, but if you push the pedal down fast it dies. We have replaced the fuel filter and the fuel pump. We belive it might be the throttle position sensor. If you have ANY advice please help thanks Phillip
