Huge win for car owners! All TSBs to be made public. The Center for Auto Safety just made the NHTSA (US Government) make public the full text of all TSBs from now on. They are the same organization that has petitioned the NHTSA & filed lawsuits to protect car owners over exploding gas tanks & other major safety issues. Whenever you drive in your car, you are safer thanks in part to a lot of work over the years by this small but very effective consumer advocacy group.

Please take a moment & say thank you by donating $5 or whatever you can to the Center for Auto Safety. Notes: Haven't we all owned one of these things at some point? Despite being a popular first car for teenage drivers and, as a result, being beat up like no other, the late 90's Civic is a true endurance car. And it still gets better gas mileage than more modern cars.

problem #1

Jul 222007

(reported on)

Civic DX 1.6L

  • Automatic transmission
  • 87,868 miles


started out when my car started to squeal. thought it was the belts so i replaced them. Still squealed. So i was giving my car a tune up and found one of the plugs was extremely loose. Put the new plugs in and the problem went away for 2 weeks. Started doing it again so i checked the plugs and they are all tight. But it seems like its misfiring only when it gets really hot out. It does it during idle and when accelerating.
