    Red face Honda City 2011 Acceleration Problem! Help!!

    Hello Everyone

    I just bought a brand new honda city 2011 MT a couple of weeks back. I am facing some issues with the acceleration of the car. Usually in the second and third gear there is a delay in the car picking up acceleration... for example as soon as i switch to second gear i press the accelerator a little further but there is no visible or felt change for around 4-5 seconds and then suddenly the car starts to pick up acceleration without me pushing the accelerator any further...!!! I dont know why is this reaction time so slow... the problem is more prominent when i have the AC on!!
    i hope that its not something major...

    Plus.. i generally drive the car slowly below 80 km since i havent reached 1000 km... but maybe 4-5 times i did put a lot of force on the 2nd gear and made it go up to 50 in second gear! Is this a cause of the above problem.. many people say to drive safely at a slow speed not exceeding 80 while some say that it is not a requirement..

    Your help is much appreciated!

    ON CNG you wont even feel any knocking which you does feel on petrol and as far as pick is concerned, on CNG the pick is same as petrol. I do feel this lag on petrol but on CNG, I dont feel any.
    Technically how is this possible.. liquid petrol is supposed to be superiod to gaseous CNG... !!!

    No, the liquid petrol we have in Pakistan contains a lot of impurities, which CNG doesn't have. Secondly the octane number of CNG is even higher than high octane petrol.

    Ok... i didnt know that... i thought that liquid was superior to gas in terms of combustion... but that is not the issue...

    and then it needs to be found out that how come corolla runs smoothly on second and third gear with the same impure petrol while City cant?

    Corolla is heavier than city... where else can city go wrong?

    ^^^
    Honda City and Toyota Corolla both have 1300cc engines. Although engine displacement is same but Honda City engine is capable of producing 100 hp while Totoya Corolla Xli/Gli produces 84 hp from its 1300cc engine. More power from smaller engine requires fuel to be good and pure. Secondly Honda City's engine is Euro 4 compliant.

    WOW - so you are saying that in the 80s the turbo formula 1 qualifying engines that were 1.5 litres pushing out 800 to 1000 hp were running on out of this world petrol?

    remember that hp is not the end of the game, its the torque that you need to get the horses moving.. e.g. the old Honda B16 - 160 hp and whatever torque it had was at 6800 or 7000 rpm (yikes) not good, meaning to be in the sweet range on every gearchange I should somehow keep it at 6800 rpm (not quite possible in normal lives)

    I was talking about naturally aspired engines. I know turbo charged engines produce more power. And yes torque is also very important factor. You can not drive the car at high RPMs always.

    I think honda city has low torque in small gears which results in lacking of power and knocking.

    petrol cars generally have low torque in low rpms...
    if ur looking for decent torque for small petrol engines, look above 3000 RPM
    yeah..diesels are all torquey from 1500 rom and above, sometimes even lesser

    Default Honda city idsi 2006 manual

    Salam to all

    Guys i am facing problem with my 2006 idsi while pushing it up on parking ramps or high speed breakers. It takes a alot of power to push. Usually car seems to be dead on high ramps and speed breakers. I replaced ignition coils, serviced the throttle, use high octane with fuel cleaning liquid but the problems remains tha same.

    Please suggest

    AOA

    HONDA produce excellent but sensitive cars. I had Honda city 1.3 in 2010 and now Honda City Aspire 1.5 2016 , I faced same knocking and loosing acceleration issues specially in 2nd Gear .

    Honda City 1.5 has less of these issues.

    I fixed 90% of these issues by using MOBIL 1 0W40 EXTENDED LIFE & HI-OCTANE ( PSO ). Indescribable difference !

    TRY IT and start loving your Car . Don't forget to say thank you !

    WOA , Usman
