I checked the air pressure in all 4 tires and added a little air to each. Manual says if indicator does not reset, visit the dealer. Any way I can reset it?

would water in the trany make my automatic trans inoperable?

My 1997 Honda Civic, got hot but did not overheat. Finding no problem with the cooling system, the Honda dealer did an air test and said the head gasket was leaking. BUT recommended against replacing the head gasket because it would cause it to start to burn oil badly. He said this is due to the high mileage, 174,000. Is that right? Why is that? Thanks.

I want to replace my coolant (antifreeze) and would like to know if there is a engine pitcook for draining the coolant. And if so, where is it located? I know about the one on the radiator, but is there another one? Also, what else should I be aware of before I start the process?

It is my understanding that the use of a special machine is necessary to perform a brake fluid flush. I had the service done at the Dealer 2.5 years ago and I was charged $100 dollars. I called the same Dealer this week to request the same service and this time the service costs $50 dollars. When I mentioned that I had called other places in town and I had been quoted $145, I then asked the service advisor why they were charging less than every one else in town, and he responded that the others charged more because they were using "the special machine" but that it was not necessary to perform the service using that machine and that's the reason their price was only $50. Now I'm confused and don't know who to believe. Can you please tell me which is the correct way to perform a brake fluid flush so that I can make an informed decision and won't be taken for a ride as females usually are? Safety is my concern, not the cost.

Thank you,
Ms. Munoz

2004 Honda Civic; the mechanic says he sees the begining of a tear in the boot of both lower ball joints, and wants to replace both boots, but not the joints. He sees no damage to the joints. Is it typical to just replace the boots?

I have a 2003 Honda Civic, I notice that it only takes a few seconds for my vehicle to warm up to normal. I can drive my vehicle for approximately 30 miles before I can see that it starts to over heat, once I exit the freeway it jumps all the way to the top. I have replaced the thermostat twice, just replaced spark plugs and had oil changed, not milky. No leaks found. My concern is what can make my vehicle reach normal temperature in just seconds. I can drive the vehicle sitting from over night and reach the normal temperature in under 5 minutes, no white smoke or anything

In the vehicle, i step out for 30 minutes, of course turned off, I get back in to start. I notice that a blue fragmented rubber is under clutch pedal. I check and sensor below dash is now with a disentegrated clutch piece, so i replace with small coin and tape. I figure fine, but car will not start... Is there a fuse for the clutch? Seem like car is needing the engagement of the clutch to start., I also tried a "jump" from an other vehicle. Well car got towed home. Thanks for your assistance

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.

I just bought my Honda, and already had my oil pain fixed, and a brand new radiator and upper house. But the day I had my radiator fixed I took it for a drive, and the car was really hard to accelerate. It makes a sputtering noise, and I'm curious as to what it is? And if it is even worth fixing. Please help me.

Last night I had a new battery installed. The car started fine. But the radio does not work. On the radio/clock display it reads (enter code) I don't know what code to enter!

The Horn doesn't work at all. There is no sound made, not even a clicking noise. The fuse descriptions don't mention the horn and everything else works (lights, blowers, etc.).

while driving the car seems to hesitate, and the rpm's drop

My battery light just came on last night on my 1991 Honda Civic DX 4dr Auto. My battery is less than 2 years old and is a Honda Battery. Why would this light come on?
