  1. Bugs, faults and irritations (9G)
    Afternoon all, hope you are well. I'm wondering if anyone can shed some light on an issue I've had recently. I have a 2012 Civic (1.6 diesel). Last weekend I was refuelling and had trouble removing the nozzle from my fuel filler. Eventually I got it out with a bit of jiggling around - but I...
  2. 2009 Civic (8G)
    When I unscrew the filler cap there's a hissing sound which is either caused by a vacuum in the tank (and the air is rushing in) or pressure in the tank (air is rushing out). I can't tell which it is. Is this normal or do I have a blocked breather somewhere? :surprise: The car is performing...

    Despite the drop in temperature, I have had a significant 5+ MPG drop on V-Power. Down to 35 MPG from 40+ MPG. This is my first time on High Octane Petrol. The manual does say it can take more than 95 RON and oxygenated fuel (whatever that is). What is everyone views after using V-Power Petrol...

    I'm sorry to ask what might be such a simple question I have a 2007 1.4 i-DSI - Looked in the manual and a lot of places online and am not in the position to look myself before my trip to Halfords this weekend, what fuel filter shape/type will i need to pick up?

    Hi Guys, For a while now I've had an issue with filling up my car with fuel. My car is the 2.2 Diesel 07 Reg Civic SE When inserting the nozzle and starting to fill up, I only get about 2 litres in before the pump clicks off. I can then wait a few seconds and get some more in before it clicks...
  6. Type-R
    Hi everyone, its my first post here. I have 2008 FN2 and recently the engine seems to be a bit sluggish when cruising at a constant speed or when coming off the gas. The revs don't seem to drop down as smooth as they used too, at least that's how it feels. Its a bit like driving a car with...

    Hi, Hoping someone out there might be able to help. I am having problems with my ’06 Honda Civic 2.2CDTi. The original problem was the car was running on 3 cylinders, but it still started and ran every time. The computer was showing short circuit on number 4 cylinder. I left the car off the...

    Hi Guys, its been a while since I last posted on here but felt I had to with what I discovered today! Got home form work and could smell diesel when I opened the door. So, I had a look underneath and sure enough there was diesel dripping from the under tray. So out comes the jack and stands and...

    Hi people i need some help, my 09 civic type s has gradually lost MPG over the last month or so, ever since i got it back from a full service and mot, i drive low miles to work and back but i would still be getting high 40s and higher dependant on how i drove, and then on longer trips it would...

    Probably clutching at straws here; but is there any way to calibrate the fuel gauge? I don't know whether this is the same with everybody but whenever I fill up with fuel, my fuel gauge shows full for probably 70 (only get 350 miles a tank) miles before moving off full, and then as soon as it...
  11. Styling (8G)
    Has anybody had their fuel cap sprayed or painted to match their car?
  12. Electronics (8G)
    Put in a tenner today at the local pump. Made no difference at all to the car. For some reason the range was still 30 miles and the needle seemed more than happy to keep its place at the bottom. We put in 7.67 litres, surely that would make a difference? Even drove for about 5 miles at speeds...

    Hi all, Still need your help with this. I have been battling this problem for about 5 weeks now! My CTR has been throwing the fault code "Check System - Engine". Its been into Honda 4 times now to try and diagnose and correct the problem, code has been cleared each time but then reoccurs about...

    I was hoping someone else here has some advice on the following. After sitting and idling for a short period (ie, waiting at a set of lights), when I go to pull away in first gear the engine seems very unresponsive, almost like its being strangled, which almost leads to stalling unless you give...

    How accurate is the MPG reading on a Honda Civic. I drive a 1.8 ex and following a recent trip to Bruges the computer was showing an average of 44MPG. The milometer reading was 650 miles when I returned home and I used 2 tanks of fuel, approx 44 litres per tank. The issue I have is when I...

    Not sure what thread to post this on so General Discussion sounds like a good start. I have a '09 Type S and everytime I go to fill up and unscrew the fuel cap a lot of air rushs out. Is this normal ??? I wouldn't of thought that a lot of air in the fuel tank would be a good thing ?!?!?

    I've noticed something strange in my Type S GT. Everytime I drive the car with a 'full tank' of fuel, I've noticed a splashing sound from underneath the front seats. I'm sure this is from the fuel tank because - 1. It is located underneath the front seats. 2. I can hear it only when the...
