Question about Honda Cars & Trucks
I have a 1999 honda civic LX A/T in wich i decided to convert to M/T, i know. but i'm goin to any way the reason is i'm hoping to have this car for a while runs and handles like a dream. got her six months ago with 62k miles. i'm trying to make this process as seamless a possible. my main concern is with the ECU. first i was wondering if any one knows how to convert the my original ECU from A/T to M/T or woul it be better to swap the ECU, if so will there be any program issues. i will be using a intake manifold, IAVC and throttle body from a 2K civic DX. any help would be appreciated.

Remove and raise upper hose at thermostat end and remove lower rad hose.
Fill rad with a hose and watch for flow from bottom rad hose and/ or bottom rad hose connecton.......water should fall though rad easily.
Honda rads are cheap.....any restriction....replace rad.
Remove thermostat....fill thermostat housing with hose and watch for water flow at bottom rad hose.
Remove heater hoses.......flush back and forth until a good flow is present "With heater control set to hot" if no or poor flow....replace heater core.
Stop leak can plug everything.
Also.......not likely causing over heating....but ....at your mileage,if you do not know if the timing belt has been changed.....CHANGE IT NOW!
Water pump is optional at this mileage.

Testimonial: "thank you for the very clear, step by step instructions for diagnose and remedy"
you use the button that resets your trip odometer to reset the maintenance light.
with the key in the ignition but not turned on, hold the trip reset button in with one hand. then, while holding the button in, turn the ignition key to the ON position so that the lights on the dash come on.
continue to hold the reset button in and watch the maintenance light. it will take about 15 seconds for the light to go out
when the light goes out, turn the ignition key OFF and then release the trip reset button.
your light will be reset and come on in about another 5000 miles to remind you of the next service
hope that helps

don't use the 20w50 way to thnk. a 5w20 is what you should use ad if you use the syn. you will be fine but expensive but lasts longer! it all about preference when it comes down to it. if you have any more question please ask.
