  1. What have you done to your car today?

    9th Gen Civic General Chat
    They were un-mounted, and I dropped them off with another car (CR-V) because my Si can't fit 8 tires inside. I'll definitely shop around next time.

    Finally caved and bought a new set of winter tires. I'd been using the same ones since 2013 and they were starting to suck last winter. Paid $150 at Belle Tire to have the new tires put onto my old wheels. They had to remove the old tires from the old wheels, but I took the old tires home with...

  5. Block Heater Cord Location (2013 si)

    Bolt-Ons and All-Motor
    Sounds like you haven't used it before. What makes you so sure you have a block heater?
  6. Service Manuals

    Mechanical Problems & Technical Chat
    I can't remember the name of the program/website I used, but I downloaded the entire manual. Each page is saved as an HTML file, and the hyperlinks all work. I posted this in September, so I'm kinda surprised it's still up.
  7. Gears not catching

    Drivetrain Problems
    You're saying that the shift lever goes fully into the "selected spot" and stays there without engaging the gear? Sounds like a bad interaction between the shifter assembly and the gearbox. I would start by checking the shifter area, since you said you replaced that. Make sure the bushings and...
  8. Service Manuals

    Mechanical Problems & Technical Chat
    Hey I don't know if this has been posted already, but I stumbled upon a website hosting what looks to be the full service manuals for free, at least for the '12 and '13 models. Just FYI: Honda Civic owners & service manuals, user guides
  9. 3rd gear popping out when

    Mechanical Problems & Technical Chat
    Could be an exhaust leak causing the run on sentences, not sure about the popping though Edit: Actually, the more I read the original post, the more I think this is all delusions caused by an exhaust leak.

    Drivetrain Problems
    What climate do you live in? I live in Michigan where it's snowy and therefore a lot of salt will get up into your underbody and brakes. My factory rear pads were changed somewhere around 50k miles, and I didn't do them right. I didn't sand away the rust beneath the brake hardware/clips, and the...
  11. Back to Stock Rear Motor Mount and VERY pleased

    Si Only
    Did anyone who upgraded the lower mount hang onto their OEM and want to sell? I threw mine away a long time ago.
  12. Brake change

    Here's the video that taught me most of the important things left out in other videos:
  13. Brake change

    General Maintenance
    I've been messing around with my brakes a lot lately (2013 SI) and I think I could probably open a brake shop now with all I learned. Regarding your pins bolts, the factory torque is 17 on the rears and 25 on the front. They're not on there very tight, but if you live in the rust belt like me...
  14. Blown Motor?.

    Mechanical Problems & Technical Chat
    Not sure if our cars have piston return springs, but here is a video of replacing them: Otherwise if it's valve springs, that's probably a more time-intensive job. Either way, I agree that you should try to get your money back or get Honda to cover it. Don't they have any kind of limited...
  15. Front axle

    Did you perhaps collide with a box of cinnamon graham crackers?
