I had a re-manufactured transmission installed and they also replaced a transmission mount. After that , there was vibration at idle and the sound from under the hood was very loud. Vibration progressed to also in reverse and when started up. Now it does it intermitantly while driving, sometimes heavy vibration sometimes milder.

car is making a knocking noise and the engine light is on. will only drive a short distance before car stalls, was told the crankshaft is damaged and engine would need replaced.

I'm am having my exhaust pipe replaced, how much should the labor cost

am thinking it could be the cause

this problem has happened so many times, after 30 minutes it starts again

Just got this car about a month ago. When idle & driving my RPMs are high
but low speed & I have a CEL. When accelerating the car hesitates and
then "catches up". I'm assuming it's a vacuum leak or maybe a shift
solenoid. When I bought this car I had an oil change, tune up, change
spark plugs & spark plug wires replaced, power steering hose replaced,
distributor cap & rotor replaced, valve cover gasket replaced, radiator flush,
and coolant put in. Please help me out, I really love this car and I can't
afford another one at the moment.

Driving down the highway and I shift into first, halfway through 1st it like bogs down and has no acceleration or pedal then out of nowhere goes back into gear. Does this with every gear or it will hop as soon as you go in gear. Has check engine light but couldn't make it to auto parts store before it shut down completely. Let it sit 30 or so minutes and it will start but won't hardly go. First time Honda owner, used to v8 ford engines so looking for any helpful advice on what it is

It turns over fine but just not firing.

And it still not running right it dont want to go up a hill it wants to die it runs ok when its coldand when it warms up is when it starts acting up

Automatic 98 civic when starting to accelarate will make loud, long, continuous noise until shifts and when it does shift its very harsh

My car has died a few times before while driving. I would stop put it in park and it would crank back up. The other day I was backing out of drive way and the car died at the top of the drive way. Now it will not crank back up. The fuel pump is working, it comes threw the filter. It has spark to the spark plugs..Spark plugs have been replaced. The timing belt is loose. The Car's maintenance light was on. It has 28 thousand miles on it.
