From what i have read 2 things, dont change yer own oil any more, and what you did could while is not good it probably didnt hurt you. Your problem is a little hard to understand but how high do you want to take yer rpms? I would imagine that there is a governor somewhere that prevents you from blowing yer engine. Maybe a rev limiter? I dont understand why you wanna go past 6k. unless you simply dont like the motor in your car.

How to install a subwoofer and amplifier


When installing any electrical components always remember to unhook the battery. First thing you want to do is run your ground cable from a volt meter to a body or frame nut or bolt near by in the trunk or hatch area a shorter thicker ground is best then connect the other end of your volt meter to your battery cable that will need to be run through the firewall and connect to the positive battery terminal. Also VERY important make sure you have installed a fuse on the wire in between the amp and the battery. after you have connected the battery cable and ground to your meter it will light up or give you the correct reading for your ground, if not run the ground somewhere else until you have found the right spot. pull out your stereo, for stereos that are made to be compatible with an amp there will be multiple rca jacks in the back of the stereo. For a sub woofer you want to hook the rca cable to the rear or sub labeled rca jacks. Then run your amplifier remote wire to the remote wire protruding from the back of your car stereo. After that you can run the ground and battery cable to the correct slots. Now connect your sub via rca and your done. making it fit correctly is up to you. If you do not have an amp with a subwoofer out then you can take the wires from your sub and bridge the connection to your amp and get enough power, take the positive wire to your sub and hook it up to the positive terminal of channel one on the amp then take the negative wire from your sub and hook it into the negative terminal on channel two and your done.

How often should I change the oil on a honda civic vp 2005 that I put only 6000 miles a year.


Its still best that you at least change your oil once a year, every 3000 miles is recommended. If you have a car with that low mileage you still want to make it last a long time. Whats $70-$100 bucks a year to have peace of mind. Even if your not driving it the oil still should be changed regularly.

Rev limiter is at 6000rpm not 8500rpm


Hi Peter,

With such high revving engines (me being a Honda fanatic) you need to keep an eye on oil levels. Check the level, top up as necessary. Without the correct amount of oil in, the oil pressure cannot stimulate the switch over cam, which takes it to 8500rpm.

Also, please don't rev you car without load (ie. standing still), this causes valve lash and is detrimental to the engine. Again, please do not rev your car hard without letting the oil get up to temperature or it won't last long :)

Once you check your oil, reset the ECU by pulling the battery lead off for around 20 minutes.

Good luck and have a blast. Could you vote for me if this helps you. Thanks.

My car has 140,000 kms hw often do i need an oil changeits a 1997 honda civic


To keep it simple: Your car should have used synthetic oil originally:

If you are using Regular Motor Oil - I found through many years of doing oil changes & auto repairs that 3000 miles is the MAX you should drive before changing. After that it tends to lose it's protective qualities & you can actually feel the difference (once you've removed a few thousand dipsticks) in the viscosity.

Synthetic Lubricant- Higher Quality Products will make your car last longer & I can suggest no better improvement to anyones vehicle than to use Synthetic Oil. Change at 6000-7500 miles depending on type driving. City, Idling a lot, hard driving = 6000 & Cruising/highway regular speeds=7500.

Always make sure your air filter is clean & a new Oil filter is installed each time as this will keep the new oil clean longer which provides better lubrication & performance. Some car Mfgs say to skip oil filter change & do every other but I like the results I have rec'd with changing it each time. It also helps to keep the new oil cleaner by not mixing in the dirty oil that is in the filter & associated piping.

If your car is running well, stick with the 5W30 that was recommended as Honda engines are extremely close tolerance. If it has used regular motor oil & is a little noisy, during the warmer weather you could step up to a 10w40 or even better a 15W50 in the summer, preferably Synthetic. Better fuel economy, acceleration & less wear & tear.

Finally: 140K should earn you a badge. That's just a well broken in Honda if it's been well maintained and you should expect much more service from it. I hope that this helps. Good luck!
