Question about Honda Civic

2 Answers

I was stuck in snow and attempting to get out. CRX 1988 5-speed manual clutch pressure was good until i got stuck again (AK thing) now pressure is clutch proper but won't engage any gear...as if in nuetral. Starts in gear as if in nuetral without lungeing forward. In off position, can shift into any gear without depressing the clutch pedal--even though the pedal feels like it has enough pressure. What do I check

Sounds like your clutch disc has failed. The clutch cables on these cars are easy to adjust, the cable routes over the engine, from the driver side to the passenger side, to the release arm on the front side of the transmission. There is a large plastic nut on the transmission end of the cable. Normally you would pull upward on the cable housing, above the release arm, removing the freeplay from clutch and then adjust the plastic nut downward until it just touches the rubber nubs on the cable bushing. Yours probably has no freeplay, you will have to pull up on the housing and add freeplay, it won't be easy, it's almost like someone is pushing the clutch at this point. If you can add some freeplay, you might have some clutch left to get by on until you hit the lottery... good luck

Sounds like your clutch needs replacing. Clutch discs consist of the same sort of material as brake pads. After so much friction and heat they deteriorate quite quickly. If your inclined and have a good assortment of tools you can probably replace the clutch yourself. However this means removal of the transmission so the proper jacks and such are something you should have for safety. The transmission is quite heavy and without the right equipment it could be dangerous.

a service lift or a good set of tall ramps,,,I am sure Haynes should have it but finding the same year model Is hard to say.......But most clutch jobs on rear wheel drives arent that hard if you have the

What makes a manual trnsmission get stuck in gear


Hi and welcome to FixYa!

This can be caused by a worn out release bearing or pressure plate. I strongly suggest that you replace the clutch lining, release bearing and pressure plate at the same time for optimum performance.

Hope this helps and thank you for using FixYa! Have a good one!

Looking to buy a 1988 Honda CRX HF. Automatic Transmission. I would like to do a 5 speed swap on it. What is needed, how hard would it be, and what would it end up costing me?


-5 Speed Transmission

-Clutch/Pressure plate/Flywheel/Hardware

-Clutch cable

-Manual pedal assembly with same options as your car (Cruise control2_bing.gif for example)

-Front, side, and rear transmission mount brackets from 5 speed car, and the actual mount for the rear (Regardless of what people say, it is not needed to drop the rear x-member to do this rear mount, but if you don't have a decent set of tools, you may have to do this to get to the rear bolt.)

-Manual axles. I think auto axles will work.

-5 speed throttle cable to match the the 5 speed pedal assembly

-Auto speedo cable will work.

-Connect the 2 larger black wires that go to the shift position switch in the automatic. These wires are for the starter. In the auto car, they are only connected when the car is in nuetral or park. Solder these two wires together and heat shrink. Use a **** connector if you want to just ghetto rig it together.

-You will get a code 19 and a "check engine light". This is for the torque converter lock up solenoid on the PS9 auto ECU (For my D16A6 Motor anyway, the 1.5 may have a different auto ECU). The car will still run and drive fine, but getting the manual ECU for you car, and cutting off the auto wiring from the harness will eliminate this issue.

-You will need to ground the Green/White wire from the shift indicator switch, this indicates that the car is in "park", and will allow you to remove the ignition key. The alternative is to swap to the 5 speed ignition switch, but you may not want to end up having separate ignition, and door keys if your car currently uses one key.

I have a HF 5 Speed ecu and a few other parts to if you need them

Price is hard to tell because of price of parts and places vary to do these swaps. Shops around here will covert a auto to manual for anywhere from 500-800 bucks labor only.

My clutch pedal is stuck to the floor??


It is most likely a hydraulic clutch, and it is most likely leaking at the clutch slave cylinder. Check the clutch master cylinder for fluid, it should be a small master cylinder looking thing with a fill cap next to the brake master cylinder and booster unit. If it is empty fill it with the same dot 3 brake fluid that you use for your brake master cylinder, and make sure that you are pouring the fluid into the clutch master cylinder reservoir and not the rubber seal that should be under the fill cap. After filling the clutch master cylinder up with fluid, then try and pump up the clutch pedal. It might take a while to pump up hydraulic pressure, and you might also have to work the pedal a few times by hand at first.

Also, you might have to bleed the clutch at the slave cylinder if it will not build up enough pressure to release the clutch.

My 1990 honda crx clutch is very hard, after i changed it.. i have a crx transmission and 1999 civic engine. should i have bought the clutch for the transmission or the engine?


Generally that stiffness is due to a failed clutch cover (engine side). the pressure fingers inside lose their ability to compress and throw out sufficiently. I have had mixed results with aftermarket pressure plates as many are stiff right out of the carton. If you can afford,use honda oem parts for best results and dont forget to include the bearing

97 Maxima stuck in snow, but no wheel movement?


mbogucanin82: There are potentially a number of things it could be.
1. If one of the drive axles popped out of the transaxle, you can put it in ay gear you want but the car will not show any signs of even an attempt to move.
2. I you broke an inner CV joint, it would demonstrate the same,
A broken outer joint would have the drive axle flailing away under the car.
3. If this has a manual transmission, the clutch could have come apart which would make it impossible to transfer power from the engine to the input shaft of the transmission.
4. If it is a automatic, have you checked the level of fluid in the transmission? It is possible you may have damaged a cooler line which would cause the fluid to be pumped out when you started the engine.
I would venture that you will find the solution in one of these that I listed and you won't have to wait for the snow to thaw.
Good Luck>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>
