Question about 1984 Honda Civic

Open Question

Honda Civic 1984 dx hatchback, idles very high

Just replaced the alternator in fairly well kept Honda civic 1984 with 138k miles on it. Alternator works fine as far as I can tell. Here are my symptoms: vehicle idles very high in neutral after exelerating above certain speeds (generally anything above 10mph); engine continues to run after vehicle has been turned off (makes a kicking kinda of motion for a few minutes, length of time directly correlates to how high the engine was previously idling); battery light is always on.

Will a1996 honda civic front door fit 2000 honda civic dx


The body style was the same from 1996 to 2000 for the Honda Civic. Are both of the Civics similar in body style as in they have the same number of doors? Not sure if a wagon or hatchback would interchange with a regular 2 door coupe.

I have about 180,000 miles on my 1989 Honda Civic DX. I have done regular maintenance. Last timing belt at 90,000. What should I be doing now? Do I follow regular maintenance suggestions for when the car...


Yes do the same inspection as 100k. I.E. Replace water pump. Load test alternator. Change all fluids, repack wheel bearings and fuel pump.

Find and repair the metal rings tinkling. it could be a safety problem. You will also need a complete safety inspection, to include body and frame.

Congratulations on making it to 180k. BUT you have a 300k car.

NOTE:
I drive a 1984 dodge charger with 160k on it.

Hope this tip helps.

In order to replace the water pump you would have to do the timing belt. Don't know if you are aware of how involved and the kill level it requires.

Dying Alternator Honda dx 99


first of all since you have a hand held i figure you have a volt meter. locate battery wire to the back of your alternator while eng running test output voltage of alt. if less than 13.25v replace ( not with a autozone unit ) actually it should say 14.-16.v im glad you had your battery load tested. lets fix the charging system first of all at that point we will go from there.
