Malfunction indicator lights came on. Is it possible this just needs to be reset due to the battery being replaced?
This has been happening for at least 3 months. At first I thought it was the battery. But when I took it to Pep Boys, they checked it, the starter, the alternator and it's not any of these. It would take a few tries and then it would start. Now it won't start at all, no clicking or anything. Just dead silence. The clicker on the key still opens the door, and all lights on the dash and headlights are working.
My car's air conditioning worked great. I could keep the dial on the first or second tick. However, when it got hotter than 105 degrees outside the air blowing wasn't as cold. When I went in to have it checked at a repair place, they told me it was totally empty of freon. Is it possible to get cold air with no freon? I suspect that they drained the freon. They wanted to charge me a lot of money to repair it and replace the freon. I'd like some other opinions, please. I didn't have them do the work saying I wanted a second price quote. My car blew warm air all the way home. I was drenched with sweat. I strongly suspect they released the freon in the car to hike up the price.
I bought the car used and there was a shorter belt used to bypass the AC compressor. I replaced the compressor and using an OE fit belt it was loose, tried other brands and same thing. I realized that the pulley in the back is a lot smaller then the one in the routing diagram I believe they put a smaller one to accommodate the shorter belt. Should I get this pulley replaced or try to find a belt that will fit? I can't seem to find what part exactly is needed to replace it.
Hey guys, I really need some assistance here. So I just got gifted a 97 Honda Civic EX 4 cyl. It was running great but had plans to drive this long distance and wanted to do some much needed maintenance - oil change/filter, replaced spark plugs, spark plug wires, replaced air filter, etc.

Now that all thats done the car is having issues. I have done spark plugs and oil changes several times and know what Im doing. I gapped the plugs to 0.044 (as its suppose to be), used thread sealer, and inserted them hang tight. Went back and checked that the gapping was accurate for all of them and it was. Oil filter is on tight and oil levels look good as i checked several times.

Heres whats happening - while driving it feels like its misfiring, even going slow speeds and more so noticable at high speeds, it revs up really, really high then struggles to shift gears it feels (this is an automatic), and it will go all the way up to 3.5 to 4 rpms then shifts after sitting on that. While trying to go on the freeway, it takes a long time to get to 60 mph and once I do it sits at or around 3 - 3.5 rpms...which is too high. It used to sit at 2.5 which is normal and feels normal. Now I can feel it straining the engine and it I can hear it struggling because its humming loud from being at the higher RPMs. Then Ill have to push the pedal all the way to floor in hopes to gain speed and get it into the next gear and it will struggle and just sit at that speed. Trying to go uphill is the worst. I cant tell if this a misfire or lack of power from the intake or both. But I tested the air filter. Got rid of the old, replaced it with a newer one, and put it in a place where it could get better air access and no difference. It also will rev and rpms will bounce and go up as Im braking making me sputter to stops. The other big issue I keep seeing is I put coolant in the radiator and then some in the resevoir. Then it will overflow. So I drained it out of the resevoir, and just left what was in the radiator, and woke up the next day to find it bone dry. Then I did that same thing except I only put coolant in the radiator, and the same thing happened. All of a sudden its overflowing in the resevoir, and I have no idea whats going on.

This is so frustrating because everything was great with the car before, except no maintenance had been done for several years. Oil was black, spark plugs were toast, and the air filter was built with a dryer vent tube, duct tape and a massive truck air filter that was crammed in there.

Please help! I feel like Im harming my engine by driving this and I want to know what to do to fix this.
I backed into a giant steel garbage box at a gas station and it didn't hurt my car much but on the side of the car it scraped a chunk of paint off and left one or two small dents
