    Default Honda City Loss of Power

    Hey All,

    I have a Honda City 2004 and I have been experiencing a loss of power during pickup. To elaborate on this further, when I accelerate in the first gear the car show a total lack of power, regardless of the AC being turned ON or OFF.

    However if I maintain my foot on the race pedal the car does actually shoots to power after a while on I guess 2000 RPM. The same happens when I am in 2nd and 3rd gear. A few of my friends and mechanic suggested that the clutch plate and pressure plate needs replacement.

    The second issue in the car that I have experienced is that the car lights start fluttering very lightly when the car is switched on. This goes for both cabin lights and exterior lighting. However when I just switch on the power it does not happen, ONLY when the ignition is on.

    Question from the car experts is, what are these issues and how much would it cost to get them fixed. I would also like recommendations on an expert mechanic in Karachi. I have tried a few but hopeless.

    Your help will be greatly appreciated!

    Thanks,

    Imran

    Checkout Fuel pressure of fuel pump and if fuel filter isnt replaced for last 40k kms also replace it.Clutch can be a culprit aswell.Also go for valve clearance aka Tappet adjustment if havent gone for last 25-30 km kms.InshaAllah response and fuel economy will be improved. Can get it done from some Honda 3S since they r usually more equiped then roadside ripeoffs

    Thanks for your analysis Wasay. By the way what are the general indicators of worn out clutch plates?

    However Honda will be the last place i'll ever set my foot in. Just a few weeks ago, I sent my car over for the following services:

    1. Engine oil change
    2. Oil Filter replacement
    3. Engine Tuning
    4. Injector Cleaning
    5. Air Filter Replacement
    6. Car Servicing
    7. Wax Polish
    8. Air Condition Servicing

    For the aforementioned services they charged me a fortune and when I received my car after 7 unusually long hours of wait time. The following issues were discovered:

    1. All the break lights were direct (even when the ignition was off)
    2. There were scratches and i mean a lot of scratches on the trunk (my car was spotless)
    3. I felt no difference in terms of performance
    4. Upon asking if they have completed the Injector Cleaning. The manager was totally unaware of the fact that it was suppose to be done and said Yes in most dubious of manner.
    5. Same goes for wax polish and AC servicing (I say this because the car sort of losses a little bit of more power when the AC is on)
    6. Later on i discovered the Air Filter was not changed
    7. This one was the worst of all. They left my radiator empty after servicing, due to which my car was badly heated and a few pipes were blown over the course of a week, which costed me around 5k more for the fixes.

    So my recommendation to anyone who is planning to head out to Honda for servicing. BEWARE!!

    Very simple to judge clutch condition. Burnout

    Quite strange as in Lahore 3S dealers r not tht bad.
