Question Asked: Civic sedan 1.7

Installed new timing componets (all) along with front eng. mount. Customer says now has a vibe @ idle but runs great! Looked at other mounts look ok. It does vibrate very little but cant say it was not there before the work. In gear holding brk. with throttle engine doesn't move in drive or rev. like another mount is bad. 377,000 mi. In drive it is better than rev. I want to blame a mtr. mount but just don't see it. Any ideas.

Seems to be common on this truck. Anyone else had this trouble? Don't think it is computer, or circuit.

IF moisture is getting into the inside of the headlight assemblies .. Then it's time to replace the assemblies themselves! .. Keep in mind, depending on production date - your 2004 year model vehicle has likely been around for 13+ years now... Just saying.
Question Answered: can't get back wheel off because has rusted on. Cost to replace?

Also - liberally spraying wheel at lug studs and back side with a penetrate such as PB B'laster or WD-40 will help loosen rust and aid in wheel removal... It's got to come off without cutting it off! .. If vehicle is still drivable, consider visiting repair shop... Replace and tighten *lug nuts* first!

Damaged wire harness connector at the resistor... Look for any sign of melted plastic or blackened wire terminals in the connector itself... Replacement connector/pigtail available @ parts store.

There should have been a noticeable difference in pedal travel in addition to resistance as clutch pedal was depressed to shift gears - on your way home .. 'IF' pedal still seems to be the same as before, suspect clutch disc or pressure (release) plate failure.
Question Answered: do i really need to get the rear backing plate replaced? .
December 08, 2016, 11:27 AM
Backing plate 'shield' is indeed necessary equipment .. Otherwise it wouldn't have been installed in the first place! As for the consequences of not having it in place, personally I can not say what may evolve... However it does keep out road debris that may impede brake performance.
Question Answered: Does fog light come on with low beam head light
December 08, 2016, 11:25 AM
Yes > IF fog lights are activated - they turn on when low beams are selected... They turn off when high beams are selected.
Question Answered: Could my ignition switch be stuck in the cranking position
December 08, 2016, 10:32 AM
That small starter wire is shorted to battery power and it may indeed be inside of the ignition 'electrical' starter switch or a failed relay .. I don't know your skill level but the *starter relay* needs to be tested first .. 'IF' relay is ok the wire harness connector that is attached to the switch, under dash, can be unhooked to see if small starter wire is still hot .. If unhooking the switch wire connector turns off power to the starter wire .. Replace ignition electrical switch .. IF battery power is still present at the small starter wire connector under hood > find and repair shorted wiring .. See owners manual for relay location in under hood fuse box .. Here is a video link that may help: https://youtu.be/w4oJhsUo9Wc Seek 'car savvy' hands-on help if needed .. Good luck
