Question about 1997 Honda Civic

1 Answer

My '97 Civic LX has over 158,000 miles on it. I've changed the timing belt and water pump, but except for oil changes, haven't done any maintenance on it. I'm not having any particular problem now, but think I should probably do something to prevent problems. Any recommendations? Thanks.

A good healthy tune up for starters. Plus change all fluids & filters and you should be "golden"

Does my Civic have a timing chain or a timing belt


It has a timing belt. Recommended to be replace every 105,000 miles, timing belt also run's your water pump good idea to also replace, your engine is also an INTERFERENCE ENGINE which will damage your cylinder head valve's if timing belt goes bad. Hope this was very helpful.

My 1994 Honda Accord LX words fine. It had the timing belts replaced at 55,000 miles, and I have been giving it regular maintenance. Does it really need a 60,000 mile check up, with all the fluids replaced...


Hi:
Boy, you have a low mileage car!

I would think that you would not need much done, if the timing belt was just changed, but perhaps your transmission servicing should still be done, as that would not have been done with the belt change. Of course, your normal oil changes need to be done too.

1994 Honda Civic LX\overheating within 2 mile drive


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.
Flush good.

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.

How to change the water pump belt for the 2004 honda civic and the 2005 toyota matrix.


The water pump's on both of those cars are driven by the timing belts. You shouldnt have to change the timing belt for at least 60,000 miles, although different manufacturers specify what mileage they want the belts changed at. Changing those belts can be complicated, and it's a considerable amount of work to even access them. My honest advise is, if you've never done a timing belt before, either take it to a good shop, or buy a good timing belt book, Chilton has one that is excellent, and make sure you have the tools you need and a lot of patience.

If it is running fine, it does'nt need to be timed, but it would be a good idea to have the spark plugs and the fuel filter changed.

Timing chain maintenance


It's actaully a timing belt, not a chain. But the mileage recommendation i believe is 60,000 or 90,000 miles.

2003 Honda Civic -LX Timing belt


90000 Miles on the Timing Belt. Do not let this go! A timing belt failure can cause internal engine problems.

Should cost around 200 or so, depending upon your local labor rates.

Good Luck!
