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.
Question Asked: Any problems with evap. vent solenoid (PO449) Is this a common problem.

Seems to be common on this truck. Anyone else had this trouble? Don't think it is computer, or circuit.
Question Answered: how much should the rear differential cost to rebuild?
July 22, 2017, 12:15 AM
Should have went to local 'independent' shop instead! .. How much is a good used differential from salvage yard?
Question Answered: The rear child safety latch is pushed down! How can I open the door back!
July 22, 2017, 12:12 AM
It is still supposed to open from the outside ! .. There is probably a problem with the door latch or door handle.
Question Answered: Slip indicator light remains on. Just bought car used from dealer.

Had the same problem at the shop on a 2013 Nissan Juke and it turned out to be 4 tires had just been installed on it also and ONE of the tires was actually smaller in diameter than the other three... Just something to consider. Now the way I found this was using a 'high dollar' scanner while we road tested the vehicle and observing wheel speed data... I highly recommend having your vehicle professionally tested.
Question Answered: My check engine light has been on for 30,000 miles and no one can figure out why

Only the mis-firing cylinder(s) should be addressed - that narrows it down a bunch! .. Suggest compression test .. Vacuum leak test .. Fuel injector performance test .. Ignition system test. That's about all that can be done to 'find' the culprit! .. 'Qualified mechanic' using the appropriate testing equipment shouldn't have any trouble finding this problem... Probably will need to keep the vehicle for a few days so "first starting" issues as you posted - can be duplicated.
Question Answered: Has this model had problem with the flange gasket and converter needing replaced
July 21, 2017, 03:09 PM
Not a common occurrence that I'm aware of and I've worked on a plenty of these vehicles .. Not saying it isn't possible but it's not that common!

Question Answered: We replaced battery, and re-connected. Started, but radio won't work. Ideas?
July 21, 2017, 03:03 PM
Kinda odd for all that to develop from replacing the battery ... Unless, the cables touched the wrong battery post, resulting in reverse polarity (?) .. Keep TESTING them fuses... ALL of em! Good luck!
Question Answered: my brake pedal will not go down sometimes. really hard to push down. no brakes.
July 21, 2017, 01:09 PM
IF the ABS warning light is not coming on in the dash(?) .. That is indicative of brake booster failure .. Have auto repair shop check it out ASAP ... Never know when you may need to STOP suddenly!
Question Answered: problems with fuel related replacing fuel pumps fuel smell strong

Question Answered: overheating only when still, while moving it is fine.
July 21, 2017, 12:59 PM
Caused by insufficient air flow into the engine bay .. Suspect radiator cooling fan issue... Don't need a fan at highway speed, ram air does the job .. However while stopped - fan got to go to work!
