A: no way to tell without tearing the engine apart but i could safely say your engine is pretty well shot at this point
Q: Belt problem on honda civic !!?
I have a 1993 Honda Civic LX. The alternator belt broke off and I was going to put the new one on but I don’t know how to get the main belt off. It looks like a pain. Any help??? I’m also wanting to find a good belt diagram for the car and can’t find one online. Any help here to please???
A: there is a 12mm bolt next to alt that is to loosen and tighten tension, and one just adjust it to the driver side that locks the adjustment in place.loosen the side bolt and then the top. you might have to smack down on the allt to get it to slide down, and make sure you use a tool as to not damage the alt(wood on alt and hammer) make sure the pulleys involved with that belt are not frozen. this explaination is if the belts are on the pass side
if the belt side of the motor are on the drivers side, there is a 12mm bolt on top the alternator, and 14 mm on the bottom. lossen both and the alt should move. to tension it use a pry bar to hold tension and tighten the top to hold and then tighten the lower.
Q: How do I find a Mugen Engine for my………?
I want to find a Mugen Engine for my project car. I have a 1993 Honda Civic LX Sedan. Someone just gave it to me last week. I have a 2007 Honda Civic EX Sedan that I dont want to do anything to right now. I’m into fixing up cars and doing it the right way.
I’ve had 2 tuner show cars one of which won at NOPI…
Any thoughts on where I can find Mugene Motors online? New not used.
A: Mugen dosen’t build engines for market for retail sale, only parts. Finding a true mugen built engine would have to be a special order, evn then your looking at ALOT of money.
Dart and Spoon does though, you would be better buying a block and building it up and having it machined, it would be cheaper and you would get more out of it. If building isn’t your thing, I would lean towards going with spoon since they sell complete assemblies and not just blocks and heads.

Q: Honda Prelude Owners: What Do You Think?
My family has been looking around, on Craigslist, etc., for another car to drive. We came across a listing for a 1990 Honda prelude at a good price, and I’m definitely interested in at least looking into it. I looked up the specs online, however, and saw its gas mileage listed as 22 city, 27 highway. This sounds to me to be very low, coming from a manufacturer such as Honda, considering the 1993 Civic I used to drive got in the mid-thirties most of the time.
If you own a Prelude: What has your experience been with it in general? What do you like and dislike about driving it. Is the fuel economy really as poor compared to other Honda models? Please include year and trim, and whether it is manual or automatic transmission. Thanks.
A: I own a 96 Honda Prelude S, turbo, manual transmission. My car gets about 28 MPG city, around 32 highway, unless i hit boost, in which my air/fuel ration drops to around 11.3.
As far as the car your looking at, it could just be that particular car, theres many things you can do to improve gas mileage for little money.
Change the air filter, maybe add a cold air intake system.
Injector cleaner, fuel additives, etc.
Q: 4 wheel disc brake conversion…?
I have a 1993 Honda Civic DX coupe and want to swap in rear disc brakes from an Integra GSR I found online, but not quite sure how to go with the process of physically swapping it out. I’ll be doing all the labor, so could anyone direct me to a site/forum where this is described how to be done in a nutshell before I get started? Thanx!
A: Its really a very simple swap when converting you need the complete assembly with trailing arms (the big stamp steel that brakes/hub bolts to). If the trailing arm bushings are cracked on the new disc brake assembly right now would be the best time to replace them. You will need parking brake/e-brake cables for disc brake civic/integras. If you have the money replace the rear lower control arms (the bolts that hold the arms rust up and seize) and new brake lines you need the rears but if you get a set of 4 steel braided lines/hoses this will be the best time to do the fronts. You need the prop/proportioning valve for disc brake cars. Most also change the brake master cylinder to a larger diameter version.
The fronts bolt right up.
It takes most of the day but its well worth it if you have the money and time. Just remember to bleed the system well. Good luck.
Q: Allstate Insurance, something doesn’t seem right?
My dad is the primary driver, and he has 2 cars under his name and are also under my name. They are a 2008 Sienna, fully insured, and a 1993 Toyota Corolla which I drive.
I got into an accident around Feb. of 2009 and even before that, our insurance was over $4000 a year. After the accident, it’s still $4000.
I turned 19 three months ago.
I went to go get a quote of how much insurance would cost if I bought a 2009 Honda Civic Sedan, and it was an additional $3200, so over $7000 total a year.
Thing is, everyone online keeps telling me it’s the average price for people who own these vehicles and one of the drivers at my age. But thing is, owning a bigger car is less expensive to insure, correct? And all my friends who own a vehicle and are around the same age as me pay around $2000 a year for two or more cars.
One of my friends has his sister as a primary driver for his insurance, and he pays $2000 a year, he’s not even 19 yet AND drives a 2009 Honda Civic Sedan…
I still feel that there’s something wrong with this, why would my insurance cost more than half of what a brand new car be?
A: autoinsurance.noneto.com – check this one. As I remember they have lowest car insurance rates for teens and young drivers.
Q: Purchased a Car that came out to be stolen can i sue ?
On thursday morning i saw a ad on craigslist for a 1999 honda civic ex 5speed for $2000 firm … i call the guy and told him if you can bring it down to me and if it was in the conditions he stated it was i would pay him the $2000 .. he brang the car i test drove it .. i check the vin compared it to the vin on the panels and inspection stickers on the car .. everything matched up perfectly .. i had the title to the car i park the car in my driveway .. i go to geico .com to add the car to my policy to insure. the next morning i go to DMV in elizabeth nj to register and transfer the title to the car under my name . They tell me that the car has been reported stolen out of paterson nj ..I went crazy .. i tried calling the guy back he didnt answer my calls.. i went online and saw he had more add’s with the same phone number for motors transmissions doors parts to many cars for sale..so i went to the house of the person that was on the title he didnt live there anymore . a lady there gave me the phone number to the land lord of the property which knew the original and real owner of the honda civic..i talked to her and she said the car was stolen from paterson nj .. i told her i paid $1850 for it last night and that i had the title and everything .. So by this point i already knew that the guy that sold me the car was definitly not the owner.. So i called the guy that sold me the car under a different phone number posing as a new customer to purchase one of his motors and transmission he picked up quickly when he saw a new number! so i told him i would meet him with a flat bed or a mini van to pick up this motor… i went to paterson police spoke with the sergants and detectives and i explained to them that i had an arrangement to meet the seller of the car to get more parts .. i also expalined to them that i am in the sellers eyes a new buyer .. so we parked at the location that the guy wanted to meet .. the same 3 people that came to deliver the car when he originally sold it to me all showed up with him .. and the cops did a big surrounding around the car they were in a old 1993 beat up nissan pathfinder which turned out to be stolen aswell.. then the motor and transmission they intended to sell me was in the trunk of the car… they were all taken to paterson police.. the car i purchased got taken buy paterson police.. They are investigating why the original owner of the car would even leave his title in the car no one does.that .. i wanted to know if under the curcumstances.. can i sue the guys that sold me the car for fraud or what can i sue them for including the acomplices they had .. and what about the original titled owner of the car/? i am out of $1850 ..
A: yes, you can sue the guy who sold you the car. and don’t be surprised if the “real owner” is a party to a fraudulent insurance claim on the vehicle. Work with the cops on this one. It’s your best shot at getting your money back.
