2005 Honda civic, steering wanders on acceleration and deceleration. Constantly needs correcting.


Sounds like the alignment needs to be checked. do you see any wear on the insides or outsides of the tire...abnormal wear?

My trans is not grabbing gears,i played with shift lock button on the steering column,could that have caused my trans not to grab gears.?


No, the shift lock button will not cause this problem. If you have a manual transmission in the truck, it sounds like the clutch and pressure plates need to be de-glazed...you are much better off letting a shop do that. If you have an automatic transmission, check your fluid level and, if low, add fluid then check it again; if auto tranny still doesn't grab, take the truck to a transmission shop because it could be any number of things such as a clogged filter, loose bands, etc. Hope this helps you!

Mercedes a class gearbox fault.no gears


If you take it to mercedes they will charge £3500 and will replace the gearbox, Alternatively you can change the shifter valve £25, new sump and filter as they have changed, fit a magnet inside the gearbox as the early A didnt have one. Fresh oil and see how you get on, the control unit for the gearbox sits inside the gearbox £1000 roughly for a new one but it has to come from mercedes in germany where it is coded to your chassis number, 2nd control units are not an option!!!!!!!
