    I went and put my car on a machine and below are the problems wrong with it. I want to know a solution to fix it
    Catalyst efficiency low bank 1, stuck in second or third gear, EGR system fault(exhaust gas recirculation), Fuel trim bank one condition, and EVAP emission control system leak detected(control canister system
    • Jimm

      Here are the possible solutions;

      Catalyst efficiency low (bank 1) = replace the oxygen sensors

      Stuck in 2nd or 3rd gear = replace the transmission fluid and filter, replace the transmission shift solenoid, replace / overhaul the transmission

      EGR system fault = too generic - could be many different issues. Can you please be more specific with the precise descrition of the problem or component in the EGR system?

      P0170 code; Fuel trim bank 1 condition = It also indicates that the fuel trims reached their limit of adding fuel while trying to compensate for a actual or perceived rich condition. When the fuel trims reach their rich correction limit, the PCM (Powertrain Control Module) sets a P0170, indicating a problem or malfunction in the fuel trims. It may also have a P0173 referring to the same malfunction but on bank two.

      Possible causes include; a vacuum leak, unmetered air leaks, fuel saturated engine oil Leak in turbo air charge hoses (if equipped) Possibly bad O2 sensor, Oil contamination in MAF connector or O2 sensor connectors. Also check ignition coils, cam and crank sensors, and oil sensor for leakage contributing to oil intrusion in wiring harness. Defective MAF (Mass Air Flow) sensor.
      There are a lot of problems with aftermarket MAF sensors. Defective fuel pressure regulator.

      Evap system - leak detected = you did not state wheteher the fault code was P0445 (large leak) or P0442 (small leak).
      For the code P0455 = EVAP System Gross Leak (0.080") Detected

      Possible Causes:
      Fuel tank cap is loose or missing
      EVAP purge control vacuum line is loose or not connected
      EVAP purge solenoid is damaged or has failed
      EVAP emission canister clogged or restricted

      Check the recall information on the AutoMD website. You can also contact the local dealership - provide the vehicle VIN number, and they can check whether the vehicle is part of any recalls.

    My check engline recently came on and now my drive is blinking on the gauges; could it be my transmission?
    • Jimm

      When the Check Engine or Service Engine Soon light illuminates on your dash, it means that your vehicle’s computer recognizes that there is a system or sensor that is working out of it’s proper parameters. This indicates a problem, the computer tries to compensate for that problem and keep the vehicle running as close to normal as possible.
      Check the vehicle for fault codes to see if there are any sensors were involved to the malfunction of the engine or transmission. There are literally hundreds of fault codes possible.

    There's a funny noise, like a bad bearing maybe, that comes from the clutch/tranny area of my civic. Car has 245000 mi.
    I just had the clutch replaced but the noise is still there. When I depress the clutch pedal, the noise stops, when the pedal is released, the noise returns. Sounds kind of like a "whirring" noise. The car shifts fine. Any comments would be greatly appreciated. ...

      I assume that the noise was there before you had the clutch replaced? Was the throw out bearing replaced along with the disc and pressure plate? It sounds like a throw out bearing issue to me. Or it could also be an input/main shaft bearing gone bad.
      Hope this helps

    Is it common for the clutch on the Si's to wear out at 46,000 miles?
    My Civic Si clutch burned out after 4 miles of erratic RPM's at hwy speed w/o using clutch or accelorator. I had not been having problems shifting or noted anything unusual prior to that. Dealer tried to tell me I must have been riding the clutch, but my 1997 ...

      Someone is missing the boat on a cause here. Yes, something is wrong. If the dealer just replaced the clutch (I assume you mean like recent - like weeks or days ago) and now you have the burning smell back, then yes, something is wrong. And if they are saying it's your fault and they think that you just don't know how to drive a clutch, then you have to document that you contacted them by sending them a certified letter explaining your situation. mail it return receipt requested. Tell them you will sue them if they do not address your situation. I believe they will respond to that. They missed something that is causing this to happen. Maybe a bad clutch master or slave cylinder that is sticking.

      Just picked it up yesterday and have driven it less than 10 miles back to the house, afraid to get stranded again. Warranty is useless if they can claim driver error whenever they want, including if I take it back again. Don't really trust them to do more work, as they had it 3 weeks to fix this and you can't miss the smell. They told me hydraulics were working normally. Thanks for your help.

      And then, after they "don't respond timely, have another shop fix it (not a dealer) and then sue them for your money back.

    There is noise which comes from the clutch when car is in neutral and the clutch pedal is out.
    When I push down on the clutch pedal, the noise stops. The clutch was just replaced but the noise is still present. It sounds kind of like a "whirring" noise and it seems to be getting worse. Mileage is 246000. Happens either cold or warm. Engine light is not on.

      The clutch release bearing is noisy and needs changing. You will also replace the clutch at the same time.

      By shifting hard do you mean the shifter handle physically moves hard, or it changes gears late ?

      The tranny is junk and replacing a speed sensor will do nothing to solve this. The fix is to have the transmission rebuilt. Sorry, I cannot make this sound less bad than it is.

    Loud roaring noise in front end of car. Replaced wheel bearing hub assembly but still roaring
    • spanionneo
      3/19/2013 spanionneo
      There are two Wheel bearing hubs in the front, and sometimes the echo of sound makes it appear to be one side when it's really the other. Bottom line, you never want to change a hub unless you're certain it's damaged by checking it for grinding or looseness. There are other reasons why you maybe hearing roaring noise. It could be worn tires, cupped, and it mimics the sound of a bad wheel bearing. Look for flat spots on tire or simply start rotating your tires diagonally...driver front to passenger rear and vice versa for both sides. Check to see if the noise is speed dependent or all times. Whether if certain transmission gears that cause it to come on....Listen in engine compartment for possible worn components such as a compressor etc....bottom line, stop replacing and start collecting evidence.

      You should try replacing all the bearings and ensure that they sre tightly fitted. If this does not stop, then you should definitely visit a mechanic. Maybe this problem is originating from some other part of your car and you might have no idea.
