I have a 2013 Honda Civic EX Sedan. The ECON mode, from my research and personal experience with my car, does the following: changes the shift pattern of the transmission to maximize mpg by limiting downshifts unless you "floor it", reduces the A/C compressor operation and A/C fan to conserve mpg, changes the throttle response to maximize mpg and adjusts ...

2001 are new enough they are switched to the new Ozone safe refrigerant that you can buy over the counter. I personally buy a bottle of AC PRO with stop leak. They seem to have the best chemical mix/ stop leak. Then when I know its holding a charge, I buy the cheaper Frost refrigerant. You are getting what you pay for refrigerant wise... It also can take ...

yes, A shop will just be filling your system with refrigerant and dye, then run your a/c for a few hours and look for the source of the issue. Typically, before you can fix anything AC related you need the system to be vacuumed, so your not expelling refrigerant into the air. Even if it is leaking out, there is usually still a bit left in the system.

Apparently there are two different grills (at least) for different models of your vehicle. 71121-TR3-A01 fits the following vehicles: 71121-TR3-A11 fits the following vehicles: So it's basically the difference between the GX and EX models in this instance.

If the photograph attached is an actual photograph of your car then the OBD port appears to be in two pieces. The blue connector on the right of the photograph should be clipped into the main piece along with the other one already in place on the left. With only half a loom connected, you are unlikely to see any OBD codes although I believe surprisingly ...

Buy your own reader. Look at the ELM327 bluetooth reader. It's about $20. If your check engine light is on the car had a code. To be honest, this sounds like a case of a human error. Luckily, Eric the Car Guy has a video about pulling Honda codes without a scanner. Watch the video and make sure you are doing it correctly: ...

CEL means engine is not burning properly and it could mean a dozen things. Even without OBD code, you could still solve the mystery by observing the symptoms. Normally symptom is more pronouced at idle. It looks like you might have to do without the help of OBD II. Gather more symptoms.

Use Honda's website, dude. Call the dealer and ask if you can buy the parts book. http://estore.honda.com/honda/parts/view-honda-parts-catalog-detail.asp?m=2014-civic-4-ex-cvt&sn=&b=B++45&dl=

I don't know if this is what you are looking for, but I often reverse engineer through looking at online sources like rockauto.com. I will find the part I need on there. Many of them will have the associated original part number if not the original parts listed themselves.

First you need to use factory control arm or your suspension problems will be on going due to parts being stressed at wrong angles. There are bushing press kits that presses in the bushings, so the hard work is really how to dissassemble the suspension. Mind you the spring can kill you if you loosen the lower suspension without first clamping the spring. And ...

It was the brake calipers getting stuck shut, the pads were so thin also they may have been binding from heat. I heard a ticking noise later which turned out to be the CV axle a result of it, but really just the spindle on the end of it. I replaced my rotors, calipers, pads, bearings and front axles regardless. The binding was a rusty caliper and the ticking ...

I would bet the problem you are having is not with the bushings, but with the geometry of the aftermarket control arm and lowering. When you make changes (like lowering) you have to consider the trade-offs. Bump-steer is one of them. If it is not done absolutely correct, you'll experience these types of issues. Today after all of the ice has melted, my ...

I hate to tell you this, but any 12/3 extension cord (15A or better) will do what you need. I see nothing there which you need anything special to get your block heater attached to AC power. I grew up in a cold environment (Northern Rockies in Montana). All our cars had block heaters. We never had anything special beyond the male plug you've shown in the ...

If this is a standard transmission, check the clutch pedal ignition switch. The switch may be bad or the rubber plug on the clutch lever may have deteriorated and the lever does not depress the switch. This happened on my 93 Civic and cost me $0.50 to get the new plug for the clutch lever. Another thing to check is the EFI relay Oten times the solder points ...
