Bearing rattle should be noticeable leaks water after driving (check right after you stop) from the weep hole. You can.check function this way:


Start vehicle on level ground, remove radiator cap, wait for engine to reach operating temp. If you see water circulating, the pump is operable. If you notice the other two symptoms the pump may be on its way out/ if you continue to drive it, this may cause the serpentine belt (timing belt which drives the pump) to over work as the pump bearings become more difficult to make their revolutions and you could break the timing belt which will cause massive engine damage.

SOURCE: 91 honda civic dx. Starts, runs for a few seconds then stalls

Try pounding on the gas tank with a rubber mallet or similar tool. (careful not to dent the tank) Try starting it. If it runs, replace the fuel pump (it's nfg). I've diagnosed numerous fuel pumps this way. Remember the pump needs to be replaced, if you drive it, you don't know when it'll fail for good. Hope this helps. Please post the results.

SOURCE: How to change upper control arm on 1996 Honda Civic DX ?

UPPER CONTROL ARM:

Do not disassemble the upper arm. If the ball joint or bushings are faulty, or the upper arm is damaged, the entire upper arm must be replaced.

  1. Raise and support the vehicle safely.
  2. Remove the front wheels. Support the lower control arm assembly with a floor jack.
  3. Separate the upper ball joint from the steering knuckle using a ball joint separator tool.
  4. Remove the self-locking nuts from the upper arm anchor bolts. Remove the upper arm from the vehicle.

Do not disassemble the upper arm. If the ball joint or bushings are faulty, or the upper arm is damaged, the entire upper arm must be replaced.
To install:
Use new self-locking nuts when installing the upper arm and strut.
  1. Install the upper control arm assembly into the strut tower.
  2. Connect the upper ball joint.
  3. Install the front wheels and lower the vehicle.
  4. With all four of the vehicle's wheels on the ground, torque the upper control arm nuts to 47 ft. lbs. (65 Nm). Torque the castle nut to 32 ft. lbs. (44 Nm); then, only tighten it enough to install a new cotter pin.
  5. Tighten the wheel nuts to 80 ft. lbs. (110 Nm).
  6. Check and adjust the vehicle's front end alignment.
The bushings on the front lower control arms are replaceable on most models.
This procedure requires the use of a press and may be above the skill range of the average driveway enthusiast. It is recommended that this procedure be done by a qualified machine shop if you are not skilled in the proper use of a press.
  1. Remove the lower control arm that is in need of new bushings.
It is recommended that both the left and right lower control arm bushings be replaced at the same time. The vehicles handling may become unstable if there are new bushings on one side of the car and worn ones on the other.
  1. Set up the control arm in a press.
  2. Using a impact socket of the correct length and size, press out the old bushing.
  3. Install the new bushing by slowly using the press to push it into the control arm.
  4. WARNINGExcessive force could cause the bushing to bend or tear so be careful.
  5. Once the bushing is properly seated in the control arm, remove the arm from the press and install it on the vehicle.

SOURCE: where is the fuel pump fuse located on 1994 Honda

Fuel pump is in the tank, there may be an access panel under the back seat area. One thing to check is the Main Relay. Ususally up under the dash, Left Dash area, I dont have a diagram, but you will need one to find and verify the relay operation.

SOURCE: 1991 honda civic fuel pump replacement

You will need to remove the back seats and you will see the fuel pump in between the back seats and trunk. Run the car, remove the fuel pump fuse to relieve the pressure and then the car will die. Remove the pipes to the fuel pump, replace it and refit the pipes. Pump the gas pedal a few times and start it up (remember the fuse!)

If it is inside the tank (the fuel pump), then you will see the tank is held on by straps. Take them off, have ajack under it and remove the filler neck and screws holding it to the car. Remove the tank, undo the central bit where wires and pipes come out and slide the fuel pump out, replace what you have just done and refit.

Hope this helps, please vote :)

How to remove water pump form honda civic 1994 ex


Hi:
The water pump is located underneath the timing belt cover, on the drivers side of the engine. To swap the water pump, you need to remove the timing belt cover, timing belt, and the timing belt tensioner. I usually tell people that this can be done in a day, but sometimes not ! Also, all of the other drive belts , such as Air conditioning and the alternator belt all need removed too.

Water is leaking from the drivers side as soon as you fill it with out the car being on it is a 1988 Honda civic dx hatch back


There is something called a "weep hole" on the water pump. Water seeps out of this hole to let you know the water pump is bad. It is to the lower right of your driver's side motor mount right below the head, but it's on the side of the block. From the bottom you will notice this leaking all over your lower plastic timing cover. When you change this pump you are also supposed to have your timing belt changed.

2003 Honda Civic -LX Timing belt


90000 Miles on the Timing Belt. Do not let this go! A timing belt failure can cause internal engine problems.

Should cost around 200 or so, depending upon your local labor rates.

Good Luck!
