I tried to get my timing belt/water pumped changed at 96,000K's and my dealer told me the belt in our 2003 Civic is good for 7 years or 168,000K's. I didn't believe him, so I called another dealer out of town and they told me 7 years or 184,000K's.

SOURCE: 95 honda civic timing belt replacement process

If you have never changed a cambelt (timing belt) then it is not recommended that you attempt it. It is a job for a mechanic, as getting the cam timing wrong on reassembly is easy to do and can have disastrous consequences. It is easy enough once you know how, and if you are reasonably mechanically able, I'd suggest getting a repair manual for your vehicle that has a step by step procedure for timing belt replacement. Companies like Haynes produce very good repair manuals.

86 honda wagovan right rear wheel locked up


Not sure about the advice above...If your experiencing a rear wheel locking up, I've seen where the emergency brake cable is not releasing and is stuck. Best bet is to have someone operate the E-brake while you watch the cable underneath the car on the right side. If you don't see the cable retracting, clamp a pair of vice grips tightly onto the cable (away from where it could retract into the sheath) and tap the vice grips "away" from the wheel. This will "persuade" the cable to retract, therefore releasing the emergency brake. If that's it, don't use the emergency brake until you either lube it real well or replace it. Good luck!

I changed head and cam om a 1989 honda civic lx.now it runs rough. whats the problem?


check for missing vacuum hoses. run fault codes to check for wires not properly connected . Have a compression test done as broken timing belts generally bend valves . IT may not be noticeable but will be enough to affect the engine performance.

How do i tighten the timing belt on my 1989 pontiac


I assume you are replacing the belt and also the waterpump, the waterpump is what tightens the timing belt, it spins in the housing in an oval shaped housing and tightens or loosens the belt, you need to loosen the waterpump bolts and rotate the pump to tighten the timing belt, make sure theres a small amount of slack in the belt after you tighten it, you dont what the belt too tight, you should be able to grab belt and move in and out an inch. heres a diagram to make sure all timing marks are lined up. note if the timing belt is being replaced you really should install a new waterpump and check the timing pulleys. good day.

Would a 1984-1987 Honda Civic sedan/CRX hood release cable work as a replacement for the 1984 Honda Civic wagovan hood release cable?


The dimensions of those cars are nearly identical, so I would be highly surprised if it didn't fit. If it is only a cable you should be just fine. Those things have a high level of interchangeability.

My Civic is making a whining sound while running. I have takin all belts of and still its making the noise....The only thing I can think that is left is the balancer and the timing assembly. Any ideas?


Hi, i think the Civic has a timing belt, So the noise could be coming from the belt itself or the tensioner pully assembly or any idler roller that the belt may go round.
Also if the waterpump is driven by the timing belt (which i think it is )it could be noisy
I hope this is of some help to you

1992 Honda Civic over heating replace theormostat - still overheating air bubbles in overflow jug and in radiator when running with cap off...


here is a check list for common overheating issues low coolant? Any leaks? A headgasket leak? To test that use a coolant mix tester. Do the cooling fans run with the engine hot? Is the rad cap holding pressure? This can be tested usually its easier to swap it with a working one or buy new. Lastly the waterpump and timing belt. If the timing belt if old/high mileage or the tensioner faulty it can cause overheating. The common practice is to replace the timing belt every 100,000miles along with the waterpump and the belt tensioner
