If there was any damage to the hood or the left side front quarter panel it could have bent a cowl or some other shroud near your wiper motor or wiper connector arms (hidden under the cowl at the bottom of your windshield). If it's a small interference it could be "clicking" past it rather than totally being stuck. Try running the wipers without the engine ...

That shudder does not have to be from the clutch. I had a broken ball joint and that caused a shudder when accelerating at low speeds. A clutch issue should affect the car at all speeds, but it really depends on severity.

Here's an opinion I look at the clutch as an expendable item. It has a life span, similar to a break pad. I've typically called them consumables. Chains and sprockets on motorcycles, brake pads, clutches and timing belts on cars...they all have a lifespan that is relatively short in comparison to the core of the vehicle, like the frame and body. Answer ...

If you can follow the power cord back to the heater you should be able to determine what type heater you have. A true block heater will be installed in the block, usually in place of a freeze plug. You may also have a coolant heater which in typically mounted in a radiator hose. The hose is cut, the heater is clamped between the hose ends. You may also have ...

I know of two block heaters which actually get the job done (there is a kind which attaches to the oil pan to heat the oil, but I do not see this working very well). The first type is the kind which replaces a freeze plug in the engine block. I believe this is the main kind which you can get for Hondas from the manufacturer (at least I've seen them offered ...

Are you talking about for these? If so, you are looking for MOOG # RK620504 for the lower right and MOOG # RK620505 for the lower left. If you don't want Moog parts, just use the numbers. You can order the parts online from rockauto.com or get them from your friendly neighborhood parts store. There are also parts listed for upper and lower rear ...

Interesting issue IF, the internal tubes have corroded within the tank that would be relatively serious. The interesting piece is, how would they corrode. As far as I know, almost ALL the fuel tanks on modern bikes use copper for this overflow. It runs from the lip above the filler point, down through the tank to a nipple on the underside of the tank (or ...

It sounds like your losing battery voltage I would make sure the battery is tested and fully charged then make sure you have good battery connections at the battery. If unsure just remove both battery terminals at battery and give them a good cleaning If the car has an aftermarket alarm installed check those connections they are spliced into the ignition ...

Just bought a Fit and the salesman told me that itdif shut down one cylinder and make adjustments to the heating/cooling system. He advised not using the econ button in extreme hot or cold weather.

I've had a 94 del sol or civic esi some time back and had all sorts of diagnostics done to no avail. Radiator replacements, coolant tried em all. Eventually it all came down to that dreaded day that i have found a milky dipstick due to a a bad cylinder head gasket. Your case is a an early sign that compression is leaking into your cooling system. Car can ...

I believe you are correct in saying the tubes are inside the tank. What the manufacturers did was ran molded tubing through the tank and it sounds like those tubes in your case have rusted and corroded. What I would suggest in your situation is just plugging the inlet for the overflow by the filler, and the overflow outlet which comes off the tank. You may ...

When you have the key turned, is that rattling noise the same as when the car was working? You should hear the rumble of the engine firing. Try giving it some gas while turning the ignition. If the cylinders are firing, giving it gas should make it rumble louder and might help it start in cold weather. If you can only hear the high rattle or whizzing ...

Sounds like the both front window run channels are dirty and dry may want to try cleaning and run some silicone spray down rubber run channels

The screw is actually threaded into both parts. If you cannot grab the remaining stub with a Vice grip or similar, get a set of Easy Outs (A tool specifically made for removing broken screws. They cost less than ten bucks.) and do it that way. Once the piece is out of the base the other half is an easy decision... If you can't get the half out of the ...

I have seen similar symptoms with vehicles that have a semi-clogged fuel filter on gravity fed machines. The blockage prevents full flow of the fuel. The consumption of fuel driving at higher RPM's exceeds the fuel flow and the engine dies. Once the fuel refills the carb float bowls the engine is able to start again. Perhaps this is the issue.

Check for a bad ground...that solved my mistery overheating

Though I can't prove it (I haven't been able to reproduce the problem to confirm), I think I may have found the answer to my issue (thanks to Elias' comment). I realized recently that I only noticed that the issue had disappeared after I had installed a separate, unrelated, electrical system which required that I add a new fuse (I cheated and used one of ...

As far as I can tell from the owner's manual, the 2012 Civic doesn't have a traditional temperature gauge. Instead, there is a light (a thermometer and an H) to indicate that the temperature is too high and the car is overheating (meaning you should pull over before you damage the engine), and another light (a thermometer and a C) to indicate that the ...

Check your coolant level and keep an eye on your temperature gauge. A car will run fine with an overheating engine right up to the point when the engine seizes.

According to this source it's possible to program door lock/unlock with a $35 "blank" remote. The immobiliser part of it is unfortunately a bit more high tech (like you would hope). All you need to do is a set sequence with the ignition and remote to reprogram it. I'm not sure if the model's of the fit remote they are talking about and your 2011 are ...
