Just got 93 civic lx

  1. I just got a 93 Civic LX, my father has owned a 93 Accord EX-R for the past
    few years which I've previously driven.
    Just wondering if any of you know of good websites to find information
    about these cars right down to the details such as engine specs (bore and
    stroke, rod lengths, bearing sizes, fuel system specs) Maybe I'm being too
    detailed but you get the idea.
    Also this little car vibrates fairly noticably in all gears except 5th,
    the Accord of my fathers has zero vibration and twice as many kilometers.
    Could this be a timing issue, crank bearing/connecting rod bearings issue?
    Or just a side effect of a small car with crude motor mounts?

  2. You should take your car immediately to a dealer. They are the only ones who
    are experienced enough to be able to deal with this problem.

  3. The only thing that would make me take my honda to the dealer would be if it
    was under warrenty and the crank was in pieces in the oil pan. Spending some
    time with the motor myself is much more gratifying than the hassle from the

    dont worry about it, thats his answer for everything, if something goes
    wrong, bring it to a dealer. Have you checked the motor and transmission
    mounts? they could be bad, i would definately try this method over stripping
    the engine looking for the problem

    My wife has been driving a 93 Civic EX for the past 5 years, and all I
    can say about this car is nothing but negative comments.

    Underpowered, noisy, rattles, vibrating, and not exactly 30 mpg gas
    mileage; but that may be due to the 130K miles it has on it.

    Auto or manual transmission? 1.5 liter or 1.6 liter?

    Everything else you mention is reflected in the low price of the Civic, as far
    as I am concerned.
    How's the maintenance been on it over these 130k miles?

    The long-life of Honda engines is not something reflected in the low price.

    Sorry you're not happy with the car. :-(

  8. I checked it out and the mounts seem fine, the vibration was just new to me
    and I hear that it is a normal thing so I guess I'll just have to get used
    to that.

  9. Nice, thanks for the direction I am downloading now.
