Question about 1998 Honda Civic

1 Answer

Loss of power

I was driving about 55 mph and lost power suddenly. I pulled over instanly and checked the oil, it's not dry but pretty low and it's been a long time since I've had an oil change. Now if I try and start it, it only turns over. There's no clicking noises or smells. Any ideas of what happened?

    It sounds like the starter is turning the flywheel but nothing is happening

    You should do a fuel pressure check on it and verify that the vehicle has spark.

I have a 1999 Legacy. Died while I was driving. Oil didn't register on dip stick. Won't start now. It turns over fine. Has power, compression, oil & fuel pressure is good. Plugs are dry(Not saturated)....


Could have overheated because low on oil, the engine may not start until the computer is reset, a safty feature which keeps the engine from damage in such cases., Take it to a mechanic to reset the computer if you think the oil being low was the main issue.

WHEN IM DRIVING, IT POPS OR JERKS ALL OF A SUDDEN AND THEN WONT SHIFT GEARS. WHEN IM ON THE EXPRESSWAY AND IT DOES THIS, IT WILL BARELY GO 55 MPH.


Your transmission fluid is dangerously low (tranny is dry). The pops & jerks are the transmission
internal components trying not to seize onto each other due to lack of lubrication and/or overheating.
Low transmission fluid leads not only to loss of lubrication but lots of overheating (of the tranny).
The loss of Elantra performance (speed tops out at 55), is caused by power loss due to friction inside the transmission. All your power is lost overheating the transmission (toward destruction), instead of
being transmitted through the transmission to the wheels.

The 2004 Elantra takes Hyundai SP-III Automatic Transmission Fluid, with 8.4 quarts used in a
total refill - but just 5 quarts at a fluid change. For How-to transmission fluid change instructions:

http://en.allexperts.com/q/Hyundai-Repair-815/2004-Elantra-GT-transmission.htm

www.autozone.com claims that 2004 Hyundai Elantra can take these non-Hyundai ATF's:
Lucas Semi-Synthetic Multivehicle ATF
Pennzoil Muilt Vehicle ATF
Valvoline Maxlife Dex/Merc ATF
Castrol High Mileage ATF

i had a 1996 corolla, the spark plug wires run through the top of the valve cover, pull them off and check for oil in the spark plug tubes, the seals go bad and oil leaks past the spark plugs and causes the engine to misfire

Loss of power


chances are if your levels were low while warm or running then you will have damaged the oil seals which can be a rite pain to get to.
