  1. What did you do to your Civic today? (II)

    Installed the Morimotto full replacement LED Housings with the Laminx Film from the Retrofit Source for the fog lights over the weekend, also finally installed the Honda Emblem into the grill while i had the bumper off and since several tabs from the bumper that are supposed to hold in the top...
  2. Handsfree Trunk Mod

    do the springs have to pull toward the center of the car? could you do a camera view (with lighting) so we can see how the spring moves as it opens and closes? Also I know you where joking around with that intro but honestly I don't think i've EVER used the remote to pop the trunk, I just have...
  3. 2+ lug nuts broke in half!? Help!?

    technically you shouldn't but it depends on your experience level and the knowledge of how your impact performs, I've got mine down to a T, i've got a Rigid 18volt Impact and that guy (as long as you don't just sit there pointless hitting it tightens the lugs to where you are a quarter to a half...
  4. Muffler or resonator delete?

    So you gonna downshift so the RPM's are higher?
  5. Muffler or resonator delete?

    general consensus when I researched this on here like a year or so ago was if you have a CVT (like your profile says) to NOT DO IT, they say you will get an annoying drone at cruising RPM on the highway, the drone isn't an issue for manual transmission guys because they can pick a different gear...
  6. Scotty Kilmer on oil dilution

    who said he wasn't educated? you do understand even educated people can suffer mental degradation with age, I used to watch him years ago, something changed in recent years, when I say he's crazy, I mean that, I mean something broke in his brain and he's gone all anti-technology and makes videos...
  7. Scotty Kilmer on oil dilution

    Scotty is INSANE, he's afraid to go near cars that have sensors in the bumpers for collision avoidance and lane warnings because he might get cancer from them or some shit, I stopped listening to the many years ago, he is clearly crazy.
  8. Subwoofer

    also don't just look at RMS, make sure the amp you get is CEA-2006 Certified, this is a certification where the amp has to be able to output the rated wattage at normal car voltage at 4 Ohm, if an amp isn't CEA-2006 it's likely overrated (ie an amp claiming to be 4,000 watts but has a 40 Amp...
  9. is this tire patchable?

    no Tire Shop will patch it for you, too close to the edge and they don't want the liability factor. unless you have the equipment to remove a tire from a rim and install a patch kit yourself you won't be able to get it patched. that said can try PLUGGING it and see if it holds air.
  10. What did you name your car?

    I've owned 9 cars in my life, never felt compelled to give any of them a name but one of my sisters had a like 2000 Grand Cherokee that she named Lucy (as in Lucille Ball) and I think she may have named a few of her other cars, she calls her current car (a 2nd gen Insight, the sedan not the...
  11. Parking brake as Emergency Brake

    On older cars pulling the parking brake at speed would absolutely send you into a skid, I used to live in the middle of nowhere off a side road where I rarely ever saw another car while on that road and I tried that once in one of my old Honda's, ended up stopping in the middle of the road...
  12. auto insurance during covid 19

    well i'm pretty much driving the same amount, I had maybe a week or 2 off total due to Covid so far but even then I wouldn't reduce my levels of coverage, just because you are on the road less doesn't mean you can't still be in a bad accident, also I'm over 25 years old so the cost difference is...
  13. Cvt blown bye guys

    Just connected my OBD II Bluetooth adapter and fired up the torque app and I did indeed find a Transmission Temperature Sensor as an available input for the Civic 1.5t with CVT. It was at 60.4* F (since the car wasn't running).
  14. Can Abusing a stock car really cause issues?

    MANY MANY YEARS AGO I was a bag boy at a grocery store, after the bank moved out (we had a branch within the store) we had to run deposits across town, this required 2 employees (for obvious reasons), the assistant manager that worked there at the time was an older gentleman with a CRX (car was...
  15. Head Unit Very Slow When Cold-start.

    my 2016 EX-T was being real slow, like sitting on a black screen or sitting on just the base background and nothing else with music attempting to play but constantly glitching from the CPU being pegged out each time I got in the car for several days in a row, I did a Reboot on the headunit and...
  16. Cvt blown bye guys

    i'll try to remember to check this weekend when I have time, I have a Bluetooth OBDII dongle and the Torque app. I would think I should be able to see it.
  17. Cvt blown bye guys

    where you properly servicing the CVT with routine fluid changes? More Aggressive Driving calls for a decrease in miles between services. Also dude, ditching Honda for a German Car, you know everyone in the car world is laughing at you right now. Anyone that has been in the car world longer then...
  18. Christmas gifts for our cars

    well still waiting on the Morimotto Fog Lights I ordered on NOVEMBER 30th from The Retrofit Source, they where supposed to get here today but USPS is ASSHO and all so once again they failed to deliver. I wish The Retrofit Source was simply open on the weekend, i could have driven there and...
  19. Declining fuel mileage

    tires can definitely have an impact but you would notice it on the very next tank after you put them on if that was it, I would definitely lean toward the spark plugs at that mileage and like others have said there is a 5-10% drop in fuel economy during the winter mix season which starts around...
  20. Anyone else having amazing luck with their Civic?

    had to replace a battery at just a little over 4 years old. Pretty short lifespan for a battery IMHO, but normal for these cars from what i've seen, replaced it with the 5100R from XS Power so I have way more cranking amps now. Probably wouldn't hurt to do an alignment either. But baring some...
