Question about 2006 Honda Civic Hybrid

1 Answer

Decreased mileage I read about a "control arm" problem that may cause this. What the heck is a control arm and what does it do? Would any good mechanic be able to replace it or should I use only a Honda dealer? What can I expect a replacement to cost? Also, I got an oil change based on mileage instead of the oil usage indicator. As a result, to reconcile, I need to wait until indicator says -35% to change it again (tech did not know to reset indicator). the manual says it will go into negatives, but mine now seems to be stuck at 15%. My outside temperature gauge was screwy one day, too. Does this sound like some sort of electrical problem? This wouldn't be related to the mileage issue, would it? Something tells me I need to have a "diagnostic" done, which makes me feel very, very vulnerable. Anyone have a mechanic in Phoenix area that they trust?

1.Hi First thing you check with honda dealer as the control arms will be replaced at free of cost under the recall.

2. The second one is pretty simple as you turn on the key to the second position, press select button button untill you see where you find the OIL life screen. Press hold for 10 seconds untill you see the service A sybol on dash board. Release for a second and press hold for 10 more seconds to reset once you changed the oil, so it shows 100% of oil life.

Please contact me if you have any questions over the mail:

Hello Danny,
Do you have a check engine light and/or any fault codes?
If so, that would be useful to assist with diagnosis.
Try checking the EGR valve. Depending on mileage, these will fail and cause a rough idle and decreased performance especially at operating temperature.
If engine has recently overheated, then check your coolant for traces of oil and/or oil for traces of coolant or excessive moisture. Once engine is at operating temp, a blown or failing head gasket can cause rough idle and misfire.
I hope this helps.

Engine light and tcs light both come on my 01 honda oddesey


I would highly recommend having the check engine code read,if you can access the code i would be more than happy to read it to you but there should be no reason why the TCS light comes on.
That is your (TRACTION CONTROL SYSTEM) and should not be coming on and off,

I have a 2003 outback we put a scanner on the car and drove the car at 45 mph the front o2 sensor was reading 5.5 the rear o2 sensor was reading 0.07 my gas mileage has dropped there are no codes showing...


If no codes are showing up, but you're fuel mileage has decreased, make note as to where you are getting your fuel. Differently fuel doesn't make a huge difference, but when I worked at a gas station, I had employees from the gas station next to us telling me that our fuel gave them better performance and mileage than theirs did - also, make sure that you're air filter, filter for turbo (if equipped) are new, and you may wanna check your spark plugs, to ensure they are gapped correctly. Another thing to consider is the catalytic converter being plugged, or the muffler even.
Let me know if you have further questions,

Oil pressure gauge falls to o pressure when idling


Depending on mileage, there could be several causes.

If it is high mileage there is a good chance that the oil pump is worn or the oil pick-up screen is plugged with sludge. Low oil pressure is also caused by bearings being worn. If it is low mileage this is probably not the case.

There is also a chance that the oil pressure sending unit (sensor) is bad, thus causing false readings.

I need yo know how to replace the cv joint and


remove axle nut,seperate balljoint from control arm,usually a good whack with a hammer on the control arm near the balljoint will free it,pry control arm down to remove knuckle assy, remove roll pin from inner axle joint now you can remove axle,most of the time the inner joint boot tears this is called the d-o-j {double offset joint} replace this boot as well,my suggestion is consider replacing axle with reman depending on mileage 100k or more.remember when reinstalling axle splines need to be lined up on inner shaft so roll pin goes in without problem good luck

I hit a pothole which knocked van out of alignment, broke the control arm and cracked the frme underneath is it worth repairing?


Hello;
That must have been one heck of a pot hole. Depending on the mileage it may not be worth it. If you are able to do the work yourself then it may be worth it if you can find parts from a wrecking yard. Otherwise cut your losses and think about a newer vehicle.
Thanks;
