  2. Rocking in 1st Gear

    Drivetrain Problems
    Hey guys, I got another question. I'm travelling just a little above 20km/hr around 3 - 3.5k RPM in first gear. I'm not shifting up because i have to slow down soon. If I let go of gas at this point, the car rocks alot. It's like I made a bad shift. I know there's some engine breaking...

  6. Grinding In 1st Gear

    Drivetrain Problems
    Hi All, I've had my Si for exactly 1 year now. I love the car, but do have a lot of the issues many members here talk about. I do have the popping in the driver seat, the trunk area does make a squeaking sound at low speeds, and noticed a chipped paint after washing my car yesterday. I can...

  10. 1st gear crunchy for anyone else?

    Drivetrain Problems
    Having some problems from a stand still throwing it into first sometimes. Like it will go in half way sometimes and I'll have to take it out and throw it back in to get it fully engaged. Sometimes it's smooth going in and sometimes it's crunchy going in. The other gears seem fine. I'm beginning...
  11. Head light dim in 1st & 2nd Big Three?

  12. Very 1st windshield claim :(

    How many of you can say your 12' SI is on its 2nd windshield? Damn British roads and their damn foreign objects everywhere! I was minding my own business driving home from work when a "lorry" flew past me going the other way and a pebble the size of a small marble hit the bottom right...
  13. My 1st brand new car!

    New Member Introductions
    After much deliberation I decided to go with the 12' Civic Si, and I could not be happier! This thing is badass! Maybe a little bit of it is coming from having to drive around a 92 Plymouth Duster for the last 10 years, but this has been well worth the wait! I really had my heart set on the...
  14. Noticed weird shift from 1st to 2nd

    Drivetrain Problems
    I've had my LX standard transmission since November 2011 and about 3 weeks ago have noticed this weird feeling when shifting from 1st to 2nd. Its as if the stick "pops" out of first like it was spring loaded and you can feel its kind of rough rather than the smooth shift feeling.. sorry don't...
  15. Downshift "clunk" going into 1st

    Drivetrain Problems
    Anyone else notice that their automatic will kind of "clunk" down into 1st when you are coming up to a stop going pretty slow- or in a parking lot. Its not every time, but often enough that I notice it. Just wondering if it is normal for this transmission or if I should get it looked at. But it...

  17. First gear not smooth?

    Drivetrain Problems
    I have kind of recently noticed that my first gear on my si is pretty bad. Whenever I push in the clutch and then start to put it into first it doesn't exactly glide right in. It kind of feels as if it's resisting like it would if you hadn't pushed in the clutch. So while at a light on the way...
  18. Gear shifter got smoother for 1st and 2nd gears

    Drivetrain Problems
    Enjoying my Civic LX but have noticed that shifting between first and second gears feels significantly smoother than before. There seems to be less resistance than there used to be and a noticeable difference between 1st and 2nd compared to 3rd and 4th. This is my first manual transmission car...
