Question about Honda Civic

1 Answer

I have honda civic 1995 LX. When I start my car it vibrates also when I apply the braked at a full stop and sit with my foot on the brake peddle to keep it from moving such as at a stop light, it vibrates so hard that it shakes the whole car. Many time it stops also in between. When I press the gas paddle, seems has no effect on speed. It's not taking the pick up. When I start running car it takes huge time reach to speed 20 or 30. Doesn't go beyond 40 or 50. Earlier i have overheating problem, I took it to auto shop, he did the pressure & other tests and said head gasket is ok (good). But may be problem with raidiator so replaced new raidiator,Raidiator fan, thormostate etc. It ran find for one month again i had the overheating problem. I got suggessting that it could be the air trapping problem. So I took off the raidaitor cap and start the car and run it for 1 hour. IT solved the problem for next one month. Now it does't overheat but vibrates lot and doesn't have power. I mean no pick up or seems like gas paddel has nothing to do with speed. I shown it autoshop again he says cooling system is fine but might be problem with head gasket, so recommend replacing headgasket,timingbelt, warterpump etc which cost around $2100, which is not work the cost of car. Any help what could be the exact problem behind the vibration and no pick up (no power)? Any recommonation for repair?

I have a 2004 alero and when I press on the brakes to stop at a red light or stop sign a vibration occurs and it's loud but when I put it in park it stops vibrating. What can I do about this problem?


Sounds like you have warped rotors and or a lose caliper mounting bolt . When you stop do you feel a vibration in the brake peddle or in the steering wheel or both ? IF you feel the pulsation in the brake peddle I would suspect a brake pad / brake rotor problem . Now if you do not feel it in either and the vibration is through the whole car with out the brakes being applied i would think it may be related to and engine/drive line problem (motor mount /trans mount /axle problem)

When push brakes you have to push really hard to make them go in then the truck barely stops. Replaced the MC and bled the brakes now every time push brakes truck acts like its going to die. Brake light...


Sounds like you will have to bleed your brakes again, but thats not the problem og hard brake peddle, need to check your power brake booster, sit right in back of master cylinder, check make sure it has vacum going to it, also to test it with engine off, press on brake peddle three time, then state engine with foot on peddle, peddle should go down a few inches, also with engine of peddle should feel soft for three pumps, if you have none of this , power brake booster is bad.

Rear brake lights do not work.


The brake light that is on the dash is for the emergency brake...When that light is on that is supposed to tell you that the emergency brake is applied if the brake is not applied then you need to service the emergency brake. And on the brake pedal there is a coupler that is hooked up to the pedal bracket that wire may be soft set try gently snapping it into place.
