Question about 1999 Honda Civic

1 Answer

1999 Honda Civic DX no top acceleration.

Just had timing belt changed. Honda a bit slow picking-up speed and rev's out at 4000 with no acceleration beyond that at about 100 klm/hour. Checked timing and looks good.

Car wnt pick up speed


Your problem is a bit vague & the make & model on the car only says 2001 Honda Civic. A lack of acceleration can be a couple of things in any vehicle. It can be a sign of clogged fuel injectors...but the Civic's from the 90's to early 2000's were known for problems with stuck accelerators or rapid acceleration. Both these "defects" involved issues with the throttle plate & pads. In instances where the car seems sluggish & won't accelerate rapidly...a light oiling to the throttle & pads could be a solution; otherwise it's inevitable that you'll need slight adjustments at the mechanic.

1999 Honda civic Ex 5 speed


It is possible that your clutch is slipping, causing the engine to rev high. Does it also seem to be lacking power, ie if you put your foot ******* the accelerator does it just rev up and not go any faster? If so, the clutch will need to be replaced. Take it to a garage and get them to road test and report to you if you are unsure.
Hope this helps, Mark
