    Clutch or Transmission or ?
    My '04 honda civic lx 5speed wont shift into 2, 4, or reverse. It is as though something is stuck in the tree so i don't have the three speeds at the bottom of the shift. i can only shift into 1st, 3rd and 5th. Is it the transmission, the clutch, or both?

      In order to determine transmission or shifter linkage, the shift linkage has to be disconnected from the transmission and then the transmission has top be manually engaged to confirm that the unit can be put into 2nd, 4th and reverse. After doing that then the focus goes on to what went wrong with the shifter.

    Why does my little Civic refuse to start up when on grass?
    even when it hasn't rained for days when I park my car on grass it won't start. if I keep trying it will eventually but am always scared I will flood it. I have not had the car for long and have never this issue with other cars in the past. I would appreciate any ideas.

      It has nothing to do with being on grass, that much I can tell you with certainty.

      You have to check and see if there is NO SPARK when it does not start, and if no spark the fix would be to replace the distributor ass'y. If there is spark when the car does not start, do NOT replace the distributor.

      something maybe a few grains of sand are in the valve body of the transmission. This is an experts area so tread lightly.

      If your brake lights are also not working, replace your brake light switch on the brake pedal.

      A. Check the stoplight switch.

      Note: Stoplight switch directs current to the stop lights, cruise control, and shift interlock to turn them on or off
      When not replaced, stop lights will run continually or not function, potentially causing premature bulb failure, safety issues and/or the transmission will not shift out of park.

      B. Check the vehicle for fault codes to see if there are any sensors were involved to the malfunction of the engine.

      1.Local auto parts stores such as Autozone ( not in California) or Advance Auto parts will scan and retrieve any diagnostic trouble codes ( dtc ) stored in the powertrain control module for free of charge..

      2. Amazon.com has the code reader for less than $ 16.26 dollars + shipping
      Autel MaxiScan MS300 CAN Diagnostic Scan Tool for OBDII Vehicles

      3.Re-post the dtc's in here " answer question " for further assistance.

      Note: we need the dtc's to identify the sensor, there are a dozen different sensors to operate the car.

      Visit this site and see all the different sensors.

      Check the many on-line auto parts sources, such as; www.autopartswarehouse.com, wwwpartsgeek.com, www.autoanything.com and www.rockauto.com - to list only a few sources. For example, they (Rock Auto) list the; stop light switch from around $4.80 for your vehicle; Standard Motor Part # SL242T.

      The clutch hydraulic needs to be bled out, this is not a complex procedure.
