Where would I find my speed sensor on a 1996 honda civic dx in order to replace it, and how would i replace it.


It is located on the side of the transmission, requires 1 bolt, will notice a power plug which you must unplug wire connector, remove the bolt then the sensor canbe removed from your transmission it will pull out. Before installing your new sensor you may want to rub a little transmission oil on the part of the sensor that goes in transmission there is a o-ring on the part. This will help it go in alot more easier also lubricate you new part. Hopefully this was helpfull the sensor is around $100.00 - $140.00.

Trying to find the transmission dipstick on a 96 Honda Civic manual transmission


Stand facing the engine, at the far end of the engine compartment you will see the battery, with a flash lite look down between the battery and the big black air flow box right in front you. It has a circular ring on top and is yellow, pull straight up.

Your plugs are fouling out probably from excessive wear on the piston rings. Replace the plugs and check them in about 3 days to a week and see how bad they look. Clean them if necessary and reinstall them. Your engine will burn oil that slips past the rings if they are worn. Usually this will happen when the engine is cold and the rings have not expanded. The expansion is normal so what I suggest is at your next oil change use 3 quarts of the regular oil that you use and 1 quart of 20w/50. The thicker oil will help seal the rings a little better. Don't use more than a quart or 2 at the most because it will make your oil pump work harder causing premature failure.

I have a 96 honda civic lx, with 133,300. i just had the exhaust valves replaced,and the guy said the rings were good. it dont smoke, but it is going thru 1 qt of oil every 2 days


if it doesn't smoke then it is throwing the oil out somewhere, probably down at the back of engine at valve cover gasket....he might have screwed up the gasket or tried to re-use th old cork one. but.....check the oil dipstick tube to make sure it is seated properly and not giving you a proper reading....hope this helps

My daughter said she was driving yesterday and when she went to shift from 1st to 2nd in her 96 Honda Civic it died. Now it turns over like it wants to start but won't start.


Does car have spark? If it doesn't problem probably lies in the distributor. Make sure if you take the cap off of the distributor it doesn't have any oil build up- usually caused from an O ring that wears and allows oil in from engine. If does have spark, then remove oil filler cap and have someone turn engine over and see if valves are moving at all- if they are not, you may have to replace timing belt along with the water pump being that they are usually done at the same time. Just check and make sure that the engine in a non-interference engine where the pistons cannot make contact with the valves (damage will occur if so on some models).
