Question about 2001 Honda Civic

1 Answer

01CivicEX Turns on wont go forward (yes my foot is on the pedal)

01 civic ex automatic V4-- was almost all the way to work, a 35 mi drive, at a stop sign. I go to drive forward... and when i put my foot on the gas the RPMs shot up to seven thousand and it wouldn't go past 5 mph. Sounded like sputtering and scaryness. The check engine light finally went on after a few minutes of chugging along at 5 to roll to the side of the road. I had it towed to a Honda dealership but they said THEY DON'T KNOW WHATS WRONG. A HONDA DEALERSHIP! So, do I need a new transmission or a new car??

Is it mandatory in Ontario to ue the brake with the right foot?


If you are driving with your right foot on the gas and the left on the brake, this is not good for many reasons. The most obvious is that you will have the ability to push the accelerator when at a stop. This will burn out your transmission and torque converter, costing you a tranny job. Also, if your brakes are not working properly, your car could smash into the vehicle in front of you. While on the topic of brakes, driving with your left foot on the brake pedal will cause you to ride your brakes. When this happens, the brakes heat up (very hot) and then they glaze. This is basically tempering your brakes and your stopping distance is increased. Your brakes will not function properly and this will cost you a brake job. The advantage to driving with one foot greatly out-weighs the comfort, decision of driving with two. One foot driving in an automatic transmission equipped car is for safety and cost effectiveness.

Car won't go in reverse


If the vehcile is V6,then the trans model is the A540E,and if it is the 4 cylinder engine,the trans model is an A140E.Both are 4 speed overdrive transmissions,and sorry to report that on just abot every automatic trans on the road,reverse gear failure is almost always a mechanical problem inside the transmission because there are no shift solenoids involved with reverse as with forward gears.And you did say the forward gears were fine.Good luck.
