  2. 5-speed Shifter Slipping

    Drivetrain Problems
    Hello, I'm experiencing a similar symptom to many that I've read about. When shifting to 2nd/4th/R, I can't engage the gear, especially in higher RPMs. If I push the shifter forward with a bit of pressure (i.e. jam into third) I can typically shift cleanly, with positive engagement, into...

  5. 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...

  7. Notchy shifting SI

    Drivetrain Problems
    Hey guys I got a 12 black SI sedan, I only have about 1800 miles on it but sometimes when I shift into 2nd and 3rd it feels notchy. The shifter goes into gear but its not as smooth as it is sometimes. I grinded 3rd a little once bc my foot slipped off the clutch when it had rained one day. But...

    ECU Tuning
    I got the reflash done a 6 months ago, but yet i havent been able to figure out around @ what rpms we get the best powerband. I went to the track and was shifting around 7500 rpm and manage to make [email protected] 92.6mph which has been my best time so far. But my dyno show that after 7200 rpms my car...
  9. Skipping gears while down shifting.

    Drivetrain Problems
    So i've read a couple different threads on here discussing down shifting, and up shifting and the importance of rev-matching. Regardless of if it's lazy to skip gears I was wondering if I could damage anything by skipping gears when i down shift. For instance i'll be going 50 mph down the road...

  11. SI ..sometimes jumps out of gear when shifting

    Drivetrain Problems
    I notice sometimes when shifting(especially from 2nd to 3rd) it feels like it jumps out of gear instead of just coming out. It is random and has been doing this for about 1 month. I know if I take it to the dealer they probably will not be able to replicate this. Anyone else have a similar...

  15. Shifting around VTEC

    Drivetrain Problems
    My first civic, my first VTEC engine, another newbie question. Is it best practice to avoid shifting right at the 5k mark when VTEC is about to engage? Generally I commit to either shifting early or letting it roar, depending on my mood, but today I caught myself shifting almost right at 5k...

    Drivetrain Problems

  18. Si Rev Hang Issue

    Drivetrain Problems
    Anyone driving one of these care to chime in with their experience? "In fact, our only serious beef with the new engine is its considerable overrun when the throttle is suddenly dropped. Among other things, that makes for very little initial engine braking, and the revs sometimes take a couple...
