Check your owners manual. There should be a way to manually adjust it to get it close. Here's an example, but it may not be the same in your model year:

Flickering Oil LIght


Have you checked your oil level? How long since you have had it changed and a new filter installed? if both these things are good you either have a bad Oil Pressure Sending unit or a bad Oil Pump. I would bet on the Sending Unit.

I just bought a 2012 Civic EX-L and my wife has a big problem with the head rest pushing her forward. Our 2002 Accord EX-L did not do that.


Is it possible to swap out the front head rest with a rear one? Sometimes you can't do this as the metal rods for the headrest are spaced out differently front and rear.

You might be able to remove the head rest and reverse it but this would NOT be recommended as the passenger may not have adequate protection in a car accident, the head would pull too far back causing severe whiplash.

My inside temp led didplay always shows 50 degrees for my 2002 trailblazer so the Ac won't blow really cold air


If you mean the temperature display on the rearview mirror, you need to replace the outside temperature sensor. It is located under the hood, on the radiator support on the top near center.

95 honda civic ex squeals when starting engine


Some of the grime, etc on the engine prior to steam cleaning along with any solvents used may have affected the drive/fan belt. I would suggest you either check tightness of the belt and possibly consider replacing it.

My Ac is always going off within a short time


hi charles,

i don't think the catalyst has something to do with the ac. you mentioned you are in africa and i am assuming it is positive 50 degrees celcius and not negative 50 degrees celcius as stated in your post. i could see a dash before the number 50.

anyway, there is a pressure switch that would de-activate your compressor once the high pressure reaches an abnormal level. and this level could easily be reached at 50 degrees celcius ambient temperature. so it seems there is nothing you can do about it.

i could suggest that you put an adittional fan if you still don't have, to cool the condenser further.
or just try to cool the condenser, while parked, turn the ac on, and doze the condenser with water and observe if the ac would still cut off. if it does not, then the problem is your ambient temperature.

tnx 4 using fixya,
