  2. Resistance when shifting into 2nd

    Drivetrain Problems
    Hey everyone, first time poster looking for an answer to a very annoying problem. I have absolutely no problem ever shifting in my SI, except when going from 1st to 2nd. Basically the best way to describe it is to simply say that there is some sort of resistance before the stick goes into 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...

    Drivetrain Problems
    Enjoying my Civic LX but have noticed that shifting between first and second gears feels significantly smoother than before.

  14. Sending a petition to Honda on SI rev hang

    Drivetrain Problems
    I have heard that you can set up a web petition on an issue. In this case we could set one up to get Honda to modify the SI rev hang. When enough SI' owners names get on, we can make sure the petition gets to Honda Corporate. What can or will Honda do about it? Well, for one thing, they could...
