Question about 1987 Honda Civic

1 Answer

99 honda civic lx, coolant was found in motor oil-head gasket for some reason the ac will not work! it was working fine and mechanic claims it was working fine when he test drove it after completing work. for some insane reason he wired the fans to stay on constantly and really think in doing so he messed up the ac electrical wiring. None of the ac buttons or knobs work now,no power to the little lights like ac,defrost,circulation option...the fan knob will not even kick on the compressor anymore :( any ideas what this so called mechanic did??? fyi there is a thick black tube in the engine with alot of wiring that was not cut open before but is now ...

GOOD LORD,, Not here to knock any ones work but.. could be many things.. I guess you checked all fuses.. sounds like fuseable link didn't like being wired around.. I would make sure acc. wire is not missing from battery. check pressure switch wires at the dryer see if you have fire with switch on if not run hot wire and see if air comp kicks on .. do you have power to air cond fuses .. bet you dont.. fuseable link or check relays fuseable link didn't like that wire around.. hard to tell you where to start.. need someone to undo what he did i would call Better Business Bereau. I could coach you threw this repair but we would have to have better communication..

My 97 Honda Civic LX starts great, idles well and changes gears (auto) with no issue. It has been stalling after being warm on acceleration. When I reduce the load car runs. What could be the issue?

I think you are right with the head gasket, You can find out easy, because you can check it by removing the radiator cap, then put your hand on it and feel if any pressure is building in the radiator while the motor is running. Please don't open the cap, when the motor is hot. ONLY TRY THIS ON A COLD MOTOR.

Why is their oil in my coolant recovery reservoir tank.

It sounds like you have a blown head gasket, have it tested by your local mechanic, he will do a few tests, doesn't sound good though.

I have a 2005 Honda Civic coupe, i only have heat when accelerating and the car is running hot, I have replaced the thermostat, the car is still running hot, I had a test done on head gasket and the air...

there are only three places for coolant to leak.external leak to the outside of the motor,internal leak like a head gasket causing the motor to burn coolant(white smoke out the tailpipe),internal leak(coolant leak into the motor oil.)you say that the head gasket was tested and it was okay then this takes care of burning coolant,however it could be leaking into the motor oil.check the oil level and condition.I would think the tech would have checked this,but check it just in case.if the oil level is good and not thick or white or milky looking then this is not the could have a leak externally like a hose leaking a frost plug leaking,water pump leaking,this should be checked out by having the cooling system pressure tested a carefully inspected for leaks

My air conditioning in my Honda Civic LX 2001 doesn't work and my mechanic says he needs to replace the car's computer. I am reluctant to do so since all of the other features regulated by my computer...

Change the mechanic to a normal person, computer is the last thing you touch, get a professional AC person to check it for you, it can be only small problem.

2002 honda civic water is blowing out of the coolant tank

Sorry to hear all this has been going on and the obvious hasn't been detected by a shop. All those parts probably would not of had to be replaced. This is a classic systom of a blown head gasket. Not every head gasket blown will have coolant in the oil. Compression leak from a cylinder will enter water passage in head and blow out the coolant because compression is greater pressure than coolant system pressure.

Oil in overflow of radiator.

If you have coolant mixed in you oil you have blown a head gasket at the very least. You will have to pull the heads and replace the gasket.
