Question about 2000 Honda Civic

1 Answer

I'm traveling. Honda Civix 2000 LX. We have carefully followed maintenance intervals in the owner's guide since buying. 120K miles. My wife reports that the check engine light came on followed shortly by a loss of power or stall. She immediately pulled to the side of the road, opened the hood: Smell of burnt insulation, what she calls yellow gunk with a pudding consistency. A friend who came didn't see any oil on the dipstick (but she says there was no oil pressure light until all the lights came on). The car was then towed to the shop. It would be nice to have some idea of what happened.

How often to change tranmission fluid on a 2002 lincoln ls


Hi Gary,

There is a small dilema here. The Owner's Manual for your Lincoln says to refer to the Maintenance schedule to find the proper interval for replacing your transmission fluid. Here is where the problem arises: The Maintenance schedule published for your vehicle says to replace the transmission fluid at 30,000 mile intervals for several transmission models. Then it "excepts" the models that are not lsted by transmission model number in the preceeding text - yours is not listed.

Then, when I go to the service manual and search by your vehicle (2000 Lincoln LS) it says to replace the transmission fluid at 30,000 mile intervals without any exceptions.

Here is what I recommend to my customers:

CHECK the fluid every 30,000 miles and REPLACE the fluid and filter every 60,000 miles. I have found that this works for almost every make and model out there. I have several customers with over 300,000 miles on their cars that have never had transmission overhauls.

For free PDF version downloads of both the Owner's Manual and the Maintenance Schedule (3rd printing) for your vehicle, click the links below.

I have a 1997 honda accord the odometer has stopped working it just turned over to 139999 it is stuck between the next number140000.What do I have to do?


the 10,000 gear has worn out. Even if you could somehow "jog" the odometer
to the next number, it would likely
encounter the same problem trying to transition from 149999 to 150000.

Your option is replacement, or do what 99.999% of car owners do when the Odometer quits - ignore it.
Or set the trip odometer to zero, and never touch it again - thereby you can calculate the
total mileage by adding the trip odometer value to 140000.

Knowing the current odometer mileage is valuable for a Honda Accord owner with 140K miles, since
you want to keep up the regular maintenance intervals for your car - if you do, you 97 Accord
will likely travel past the 200K miles mark, and eventually approach 250K miles (like my Accord).

Maintenance light


most cars have maintenance lights,. it is a great way that the factory gets you back to the dealer at regular intervals of 30,60,90, 120k miles - check your odometer,. sometimes just driving a few miles will shut off automatically, otherwise an obd2 reader could reset the codes..
if this a check engine light? then get the codes read to determine the real problem...
remember, more details you put in here are better..
Best regards

NEEDS MAINTENANCE light on at 46,666 miles


The light comes on at fairly short intervals ... even to let you know that you need an oil change. The mileage at which it comes on will depend on when it was reset last time. Here's a link to Yahoo Answers to turn the light off yourself.

How many miles to replace 2000 honda accord LX V6 3.0


i am guessing that you are asking about replacing the timing belt on your honda .. if so then here is the replacement schedule

under normal driving 105,000 miles or 84 months
under extreme temp 60,000 miles or every 48 months (hot or cold climates)

its a good idea to change the water pump and tensioner pullies at the same time.. they dont add much to the parts cost ...

kit with water pump and pullies
http://www.amazon.com/Timing-Belt-Honda-Accord-1998/dp/B003AXRV3S

its not a good idea to wait for belt failure. interference engines like yours will do a lot of damage if the belt fails.

Toyota 4Runner/maintenance schedule at 140K miles


The maintenance schedule is an outline and should be followed if you want to keep your vehicle in good condition. the maintenance items listed in the schedule are performed at their set intervals for a reason. Manufacturers have found the wear limits on certain parts and those parts may need to be serviced or replaced at those intervals or catastrophic failures may result.
