Question about 1989 Honda Civic

1 Answer

I keep pretty good care of my 1989 Honda Civic DX 4-Dr, manuel transmission. After 22 years, it now has 381,100 miles. It still runs well except it burns a little bit of oil. I have other cars... but I would like to keep ths Civic for my grand kid who can drive this 10 or 15 years later. What kind of work should I ask my mechanic to do on the car. I don't mind spending a few thousand dollars. Please advise

Well being well kept up I sure you are burning oil through the valve stem seals.... and new rings too... the head kit should be around 120 to 170 bucks includes every thing from the head up.... and rings should only run you 50 bucks.... If your clutch is strong I would not worry about it.... I have two accord's with over 300,000 on them.... :)

Got a 1991 honda civic hatchback dx for a starter car and its automatic, when it wants not all the time,so im driving 30mph and for some reason it like slips than catchs back on gear any ideas?


All Honda Civic Hatchbacks have been raced and thrashed to death by 20 year olds. Not a good starter car as all the other 20 year olds had the same idea.



Check the Transmission fluid level it may be at the operational limit and sucking air. If not, get a newer vehicle and not a Civic :>)

How do I check the automatic transmission fluid level in my 1989 Honda Civic DX?


Well it depends if it is an automatic or a manual, if it is an automatic the there is a dip stick under the hood where you can check it just make sure the car is running when you check it. And if it is a manual, then there is a bolt on the back of the transmission, but not on the bottom. It's about halfway up the backside of the transmission, and it should be a 9/16 size bolt. You have to take off the bolt and stick your finger in there and if you feel fluid in there then it's good, but if you can't feel any then you need to add some in the same hole until fluid comes out of the hole. And if you need fluid then you will need to buy a little hand pump like thing that will just thread onto the transmission oil you buy and it will have a clear hose on the pump and you'll just put the pump on the fluid container and put the hose in the hole and pump it in till it comes back out.

91 honda civic dx. Starts, runs for a few seconds then stalls


Try pounding on the gas tank with a rubber mallet or similar tool. (careful not to dent the tank) Try starting it. If it runs, replace the fuel pump (it's nfg). I've diagnosed numerous fuel pumps this way. Remember the pump needs to be replaced, if you drive it, you don't know when it'll fail for good. Hope this helps. Please post the results.
