Question about 1997 Honda Civic

1 Answer

Gear shifting I have a 97 Honda City 1.3 Liter Auto. Took it on the highway for the first time, and when driving at about 120 KM's, I noticed the engine/transmission ran different. at first, if felt like it was ''missing'' and thought I might need to change the spark plugs. But when I turned the radio down and started listening to the noise, I realized that the transmission was shifting into another gear. It would only do it for a couple of seconds at a time. At the time, I was driving on straight road, was not going uphill, etc. Is that normal for these cars, and if not, what would be the problem?

What is the o/d button on top of automatic gear stick for please


Over Drive..... Generally speaking, overdrive (OD) is the highest gear in the transmission. Overdrive allows the engine to operate at a lower rpm for a given road speed. This allows the vehicle to achieve better fuel efficiency, and often quieter operation on the highway. When it is switched on, an automatic transmission can shift into overdrive mode after a certain speed is reached (usually 70+ km/h [43+ mph] depending on the load). When it is off, the automatic transmission shifting is limited to the lower gears. For an automatic transmission, it is almost always best to select overdrive and allow the transmission to control engagement of the overdrive. (It may be necessary to switch it off if the vehicle is being operated in a mountainous area or when towing a trailer.) With a manual transmission, overdrive should usually be selected when the average speed is above 70 km/h (approx. 43 mph).

Whats the standard fuel consumption of mitsubishi gls sport 2o1o,engine is 4d56?I think it drinks very hih in diesel?pls reply,ty!God Bless adrie of phils


Hi,

I just got mine Paj Sport, 4D56, AT, RWD. I drove only 350 km but the consumption is pretty low. On the Highway, 2000 RPM, only 6,7 liter !!!! I guess in the mix (city and highway) it will be around 10-11 liters/100 km.

2003 honda civic you drive on the street with D or


Drive the vehicle in "D". The D selection is the overdrive. You can consider the overdrive as a fourth gear. The D3 is simply third gear, and if driven in D3, the transmission will never shift into overdrive when needed.

What is the proper way of using overdrive,how and when you have to use it?


If you are not climbing steep hills or towing, leave it on all the time. Turn it off for low speed/high strain driving like towing, climbing and off-roading.

i hope this helps

Check engine light on, auto transmission shifts gears abruptly


It should still be under warrenty Take it to the shop for repairs It is a transmisson problem but many things can cause the transmisson not to shift correctly. Call your service department and ask if you should drive it in or have it towed and do not drive till you have it figured out. If you have a warrenty and continue to drive it will void your warrenty.

RPM near 3000 on my 1999 Lexus RX300


What is your speed at 3k rpm? What rpm would you estimate was previously 'normal' for highway cruising? If your Lexus is auto trans, it could be two things, it's either not shifting into the highest gear, or it's possibly slipping in gear (although I would think that would cause the rpms to fluctuate, not stay at a steady 3k). If it's a stick shift, again, it could be clutch slippage, but my choice from your description would be not shifting into the highest gear. Bring it up to highway speed slowly, counting how many shifts it makes, I.m guessing it's a 5 speed auto, but I'm not sure about that.

CRV 2007 Fuel Mileage Indicator


It's probably like the old manual fuel gauge needle where it would take longer to get from 'F' to midway than from midway to 'E'. We all know that according to the gauge the last bit of gas goes faster. I think the digital readout is doing the same thing. I don't know why though.
