  2. 9th Gen Civic General Chat
    Hey guys its my first post, I have not much of knowledge but my mom got into a very strange situation. We have the civic 2012 9th gen with around 170,000 kilometers the other day my mom was driving to work, suddenly the car stopped accelerating - maxed at around 10/20 km/h. Many lights popped up...
  3. General Maintenance
    LONG story short. My 2012 Civic was recently rear-ended at high speed and the car is a total loss. Miss it dearly. Progressive did a total loss valuation and identified both "obvious" engine and transmission leaks that I was unaware of. I can't argue the engine oil leak-- they sent pics of what...

  5. Mechanical Problems & Technical Chat
    I have a 2014 Civic Coupe and a week ago I installed a HPS Short Ram Intake with a friend. (I don't know much about car internals). Car works fine while driving and sounds nice. When I am in neutral or park though, engine won't rev past 4,000 RPM. When I drive, this does not happen. Here are...
  6. Mechanical Problems & Technical Chat
    Have an Si, 2013, approximately 24500 miles on it. Just started noticing a less than 1 second squeal upon shutting down the engine. Any guesses? Belts? Alternator? No other issues except this, but I'm worried it may be the beginning of something worse. Thanks in advance.
  7. Drivetrain Problems
    Hello all! New to the forum and to civic ownership! I have to say before I bought this car I was perusing your site and now that I have one felt it was time to connect with the inter webs group of people who know more than I! I also hate starting a thread with a problem, so for starters I...
  8. 9th Gen Civic General Chat
    Hello folks, Got a service due code (B12). I know B is oil change, 1 is tire rotation. The only confusion is "2". 2 is filter replacement. Is it for engine filter only? Or is it for cabin filter only? Or both filters? Thank you guys so much! Jim

    just installed new wiseco pistons and molnar rods. First time I heard of molnar rods, but so far so good. The guy i purchased them from said they are made by K1. Running 10.2:1 compression for my turbo set up. Any one hear about Molnar rods before?
  10. Mechanical Problems & Technical Chat
    Hi everybody, I have had my 2013 civic si sedan for just about 9 months now. It has about 17,000 miles on it. Just recently lowered it on skunk 2 lowering springs, I just recently noticed that when I rev up to exactly 2500 rpms I feel the car shake, I think it is coming from the engine. When I...
  11. Intakes and Spacers
    I just installed the afe Intake and the Check Emissions, VSA, and Power steering came on... I believe the intake is on correctly... Will it go off by itself?

  14. Engine, Engine Swaps, Pulleys, Injectors
    So my brother recently bought an 02 Rsx Type S. We changed his oil yesterday and when we looked at the manual how much oil it needed it said 5 quarts. I recently changed my oil on my SI too and it only needed 4.4 quarts. I find this weird since the K24 is the bigger engine. Do you guys know why...

    I know it's possible to swap but what would fit in the r18?
  16. Engine, Engine Swaps, Pulleys, Injectors
    Is there a way to sense engine RPM? Like a computer readout? Is there a way to get a rpm number into a laptop or multimeter or something? Is there more than one way to read the RPM? Presumably there's a wire that goes to the tach that includes a tach signal. Is there a second or third "data...

    Has anyone contemplated this question ?
  18. Sedan
    Hi, I've been looking all over the net to find pictures of the Honda Civic 2012 from beneath. I've ran into a hare and it hit my bumper and I ran over it. When I arrived home, I checked for damages beneath and noticed that I could see the engine. I'm not sure, but I think I had an engine...
  19. Drivetrain Problems
    The more and more i drive this car it becomes more baffling with me. I figured I would ask the forum what your car does. So this is my first K series car. I used to race/tune/build d series engines and did all the maintenance. That being said, i know what noises sound like and usually when...
  20. Exterior Problems
    Any other 2013 civic owners out there? I randomly stumbled upon a 2013 civic review on YouTube and when they were showing the engine compartment, I noticed it has a leak. My 2013 car has the same exact kind of leak as well. Circled in red in the pic. It seems to be around the engine (valve?)...
