Why is it leaking oil from oil filter after i did oil change??

Hello, Not good. Wrong filter, damaged filter or filter not tight enough. Double check. Did you get an oil light on dash (2 quarts low). The computer may have shut the engine down before engine failure if you are lucky (oil light). If you did not blow your engine (sieze) and you fix the filter problem put some 'lucas' oil in your engine to help with excessive friction caused by low oil level. I hope this helps.

I have a 1996 Honda Civic, it only overheats after

Might have air in the system. With engine cool, take radiator cap off and start car. Let it come to operating temp and ensure fan kicks on/off as it should. Keep hands clear of rotating parts - fans, belts, motors. Replace cap and make sure there is water in the overflow reservoir.

96 Honda Civic. In cold

the "dimmer switch" is part of the combination switch. They wear down, internally - I've taken apart a used one, so I know. Also, the headlamp connectors like to corrode on that model year ( I also have 96 civic, and had to replace a headlamp connector). https://www.hondapartsnow.com/parts-list/1996-honda-civic-4dr_ex-ka-4at/combination-switch.html (parts 8 and 9)

1996 honda civic vtec. so in the morning on my

Disconnecting any sensor will cause a non working car to work suddenly.I would check two things. 1. The Transmission control module- vary rare issue. 2. the ignition control module. These break down a lot in Honda's. In the 96-98 model of the civic, the dash uses the tach built into the ignition control module. the 99-00 model doesn't use the ICM tach signal, but uses the same module. Test your ICM with a digital multi meter ($5 @ harbor frieght), before dropping $60- 140 on one.
