    2013 LX Automatic. My neighborhood has speed bumps that are short and kind of high so you really have to stop to get over them safely. I noticed that when I brake to slow down the car and then speed up to get over the bump the transmission hesitates to shift properly back up to go. Kind of like...
  2. Appearance and Body Modifications
    I ordered another shifter boot with the black inside clip to clip back on to the nut that holds it at bottom. I already installed the boot onto the console piece, normally when you pull the boot off it comes off no problem and when I used to put it back on it was not an issue , now it will not...

    Manual Transmission Screw?? I don't know what to call it, but the gear shifter has a screw like gadget underneath the bag for the shifter. Mine seems to be VERY loose and almost like it is screwed down way too low. Trouble is, I can't figure out how to raise it. Is there a trick or a tool I...

  5. Drivetrain Problems
    I'm still fairly new to driving stick, and i know Honda is renowned for its shift feel--However throws into 2nd dont feel nearly as good--and even slightly awkward for that mater. It feels very nice and slick when shifting into first from a dead stop, but no matter how smooth the car feels...
  6. Drivetrain Problems
    Hey guys, I'm not sure if this is normal but sometimes when I up-shift, I feel there's a small block at the end of the gear (like a small piece of resistance or a small block at the end of the shift). Sometimes the shifter goes to the into the gear very smoothly without resistance. There...

  12. Drivetrain Problems
    My brother was racing my 2012 civic si with a genesis 2.0T. He miss shifted from 4th to 2nd and the rpms flew to the 8000rpm redline. That happened when the car had 500 miles and know it had 5400 miles. I hav'nt noticed anything and even installed an injen cai. Could my engine be damaged or did...

    I just received my Civic Type R shift knob. I remembered someone having a hard time with the swap. The one on my Si was really tight too. The strap wrench from Lowes was $14.95 The strap wrench that Lowes had wouldn't fit inbetween the boot collar and the locking collar without gripping the...

  19. 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...
