  1. Engines and Transmission (8G)
    hi all, I have 2007 civic hb 1.8 i-shift. it is 180k km and my clutch was changed around 125k km. when I push throttle, I was feeling sometimes as if my clutch slipping a bit and then it was biting properly . Firstly I thought that it is i-vtec's low throttle hessitation. In fact I didn't feel...

    Good morning every(any)one and HAPPY HOLIDAYS Not really enjoying joining the Civic Owners' club at the moment, after a long and tedious drive back from Bristol over the holidays it appears my EX has a ruined clutch. The car would come up with check system every few yards or so and the clutch...

    Hi new :civinfo: Member! I usually lurk on forums but this one seems like home so here's my first post. I am a recent proud owner of a '56 i-shift 1.8 EX, Nighthawk I believe:) First day I picked it up - awesome. I had a Smart Fortwo before so the transition was incredible. After trawling...

    Hi all, Sorry if someone has posted before. I couldn't see another post like this. I bought my 56plate ex about 6 months ago and it has constantly been back and forth to the garage as it keeps switching from auto to manual randomly. I thought to begin with I was stupid and knocking it but...
  7. General Discussion (8G)
    Hi I am new to the form and hope can find views from other Civic i-shift owners here. My car is 06 Civic 1.4 i-Shift, 98k. only purchesed 2 days ago. I find the reversing gear does not pull well, even on flat ground. The engine revs is much higher, compared to that of the 1st gear to get the...

    Hi Guys, I have been using this fabulous site for quiet some time but I think it is about time I post something for help. I bought a 57 plate i-shift EX four weeks ago. This was an upgrade from an automatic 05 EP2. I did my research before hand ( thanks to civicinfo) and knew what to expect...

    Hi, I have been having this problem for a month or so (since I bought the car) only happens when I have either been driving >60mph or accelerated hard. Best case scenario it's a bit 'jumpy' when coming down the gears, worst case the 'check system' will appear and it will go into neutral. If it...

    Not sure if this is outside of my control, but recently (weeks maybe months) my i-shift's mpg is taken a nosedive. I commute 250 miles a week and have noticed that I'm using more fuel each week with a similar driving style. It's down about 5+ mpg on a 1.8 i-shift Things I've checked... Driving...

    Hi, I own a 2010 model Honda Civic 1.4 with iShift. Recently, I experienced the following problem: I went up a steep hill with the 2nd gear. The car shifted down to the 1st gear since the revs were not enough. Until here, it was OK, it was a clever choice to shift down, since the 2nd gear was...
  12. General Discussion (8G)
    Hi everyone! This is my first post here in this forum ;) I'm thinking of getting a 12/2009 made Honda Civic 1.8 Type-S i-SHIFT modell. I've read a lot about the i-shift but there were a lot of problems with the older models. But i really want to know if the i-shift is good enough in the 2009...
  13. Engines and Transmission (8G)
    Was turning around the other day and the VSA kicked in on a gravel road, that got me and my mate thinking if we could possibly do a launch, similar to that of the DSG gearbox from VW. Attempts made: -VSA off, brake, build up revs, release brake = not really much of a launch -VSA off, handbrake...
  14. And goodbye
    The time has come when I can no longer keep my beloved Civic. Redundancy last year has meant I now need to take the cash out of the car for more mundane things (like eating!). I haven't posted it in the For Sale thread for fear of breaching the rules because it is also advertised elsewhere. If...

    I've got the i-shift warning light displaying, along with a message "Check System"........ The transmission still seems to be functioning correctly (although the shifts seem a bit more jerky than they used to be) Any other i-shift owners had this? What needed replacing to fix it?
  16. Engines and Transmission (8G)
    I've spent the last few days trawling through 60-70 pages of I-Shift threads - all very interesting; but I didn't find what I was looking for! My I-shift ( 1.8 2007 '07) changes very smoothly, and the shifts are acceptably quick (although I've not experienced any others to compare against). My...

    To quote the manual... & Hmm so when I'm in auto mode it revs more and changes up late. However when I'm in manual mode it gives me quicker shift change! Any reason why I shouldn't have it on all the time when I'm in manual mode? I know in auto mode one of the downsides is higher fuel...
