  1. hissing sound from engine passenger side + bubbling power steering fluid

    Mechanical Problems & Technical Chat
    Yes, the bubbles in the power steering reservoir are usually caused by too low of a brake fluid level. If the level falls very close above the return port, the air gets a chance to mix in and travels through out the system making noise.
  2. No rear running and tag lights problem (ironically) solved. Enjoy ...

    That is really strange. Unless the dealer wanted an easy fix to charge corporate for the warranty work.
  3. 2009 Civic EX - parking brake doesnt work

    My first thought is your left rear parking brake is seized. Have someone apply and release the parking brake while you are on the ground looking at the parking brake crank lever on both rear brakes calipers. I bet your left rear does not move at all. If so, pull off the rear tires, and try to...

  6. 2008 Civic Brake Problems

    Suspension and Brakes
    I practice applying the parking brake temporarily and release it promptly to keep the cable from freezing in place due to no use. I always check it is fully released by rolling a little bit and quickly put ing in neutral to see if it rocks back a little when it stops. I had a car before...
  7. Disk brake minimum thickness

    Mechanical Problems & Technical Chat
    I know this is an old post but I am willing to share. I have a 2008 Honda Civic EX with 108,000 miles and bought it with 37,000 back in 2013. I only replaced the front pads when the car had 64,000 miles and left the old rotors in place because they looked okay and were not warped. So it...
  8. Soft pedal - but bled correctly

    Suspension and Brakes
    I am with you! Any way I read so many in the forum have a long brake pedal travel slowly growing overtime, replaced master cylinder and still the same. I am curious if anyone has ever adjusted the booster rod behind the pedal. I do not think you are supposed to touch it as it is not supposed...

    W Well, what did you find? the suspense is killing me ;)
  10. Brake pedal travel.

    Please expand on your comment of "Occasionally a bad abs module can give these symptoms too.”
  11. does anyone else's brakes give out when you hit a bump/pothole under heavy braking

    Mechanical Problems & Technical Chat
    Maybe this should have been a “Recall” as well. It did cost money for those of us trying to repair this as in buying new struts thinking they were worn, only to find out is “normal”.
  12. Brake pedal travel.

    Mechanical Problems & Technical Chat
    Did you fix your problem? I have the same.
  13. does anyone else's brakes give out when you hit a bump/pothole under heavy braking

    Mechanical Problems & Technical Chat
    To everyone that said it is normal, how come other cars I have driven with ABS and in the same circumstances do not do this? Maybe it is a manufacturer miscalculation ( too much forward brake bias, too low of a tire slippage programmed in ?) or something else; I do own a 2008 civic and have...
  14. 06 Civic EX, idle surge while braking

    Mechanical Problems & Technical Chat
    It sounds like your power brake booster is defective allowing ambient air to enter it and flow through the vacuum line into the engine thus changing the air fuel ration and changing the idle.
  15. 11 FA5 Losing Brake Fluid?

    Mechanical Problems & Technical Chat
    I do not have an SI but I would check your vacuum line to the power brake booster and disconnect it to inspect inside for obvious fluid. Is it going into the engine and burning?
  16. 09 Si, removing nut on top of strut to remove spring

    Suspension and Brakes
    If you are replacing the strut as I imagine, I just hold the strut rod with some vise grips. I would take care of using rubber pieces on the vise grips if I was returning them for core but no auto store does that I know of. (what a waste of metal)
