Almost like it is in neutral, For the most part I can shut car off and then restart, put in gear and will go again, seems to have a little trouble shifting up and down through gears. Thinking some kind of sensor or torque convertor issue???

i have a 97 honda civic ex and i bought a new passenger side regulator, and switch and there is power to the switch and there is no fuses burnt, yet my regulator will only go one way, as well as the old regulator which was half dead wheen i took it out to replace it... i can hook up the battery to the regulator and it works up and down by crossing the wires. how should i go about testing with a test light to figue out the problem. i havve been stuck on this for weeks and do not want to take it to a shop. please reply ASAP

what is another way i could troubleshoot to figure out why my passenger side windowwill not work? i bought a new regulator and new switch and all of the fuses are good. Also ive looked at the wiring harness in door, but nothing looks or tests bad

I have a 1997 Honda Civic DX. My passenger side window just sudden quit wanting to work. For example it doesn't want to roll up or down and I have tried replacing the window switch, the window motor/regulator and also the window fuses. I have also checked the wiring to the window and it all seems to be in fine shape. But after replace all of that my window still does not work. What else could the problem be??

My 1997 Honda Civic HX, passenger side window kept stopping when trying to raise it. Then it started slipping down, and now it is stuck down. I hear the motor when I press the button. It would go halfway up and then start clanging. I think the gears were sticking. So i had to manually slide it up with my hand. Thrn the window yesterday just slid down in the middle of a rain storm. and it seems to be off the track now, stuck in the down position.

All gauges & lights in cluster work except the 'back-light' for the temp gauge? at night, all gauges are lighted properly except the temp ~ 97 Civic EX Coupe ~ Is there a bulb i can replace? Thx Geoff

Can a code p0705 cause sputtering while excellerating with a cold motor and then run fine once the motor gets to normal operating temp? I had several misfires and gave tune up, replaced fuel filter and the ect. The only code is p0705.

97 civic ex, vehicle runs great once warmed up, however, while cold, sputtering when speeding up, showing code p0705. Replaced the distributor cap, rotor, fuel filter and plugs.
