    Default Honda City Fan Club

    (Maintainence schedule added at the end)

    Hi guys..!!! I thought we should have a Fan club for honda city.Theres already a fourm for City but thats dedicated to city steermatic only.in this club,we shall hav steermatic,idsi,cvt nd all models of city and all their variants. Well the history of this car is somewhat like this...


    First generation (1997-2000) On january 22nd 1997,the first Honda City was launched as a sedan.The city was always made for families and not for racing or sports.Thats why they were always equiped with the latest or sometimes firsts in the market.The interior was always very comforting and the seating position is also very comfortable.It had the options of power windows,and side view mirrors for the top model though they were not there in the base model.Power steeing,front seatbelts,digital clock,AC was available in the basic model too.One the outside,it was very elegantly designed.Beautiful,handsome and decent.Under the hood,it had a 1300cc 16valve SOHC engine ,and was the first car to have 16-valve in 1300cc category.


    Second generation (2000-2003) On January 20th 2000, Honda replaced the original City of 1997 with an update.This model of city had the basic shape of its predecessor.but with new crystal head lamps at the front,power side view mirrors and a chrome lining around the rear numberplate garnish.It was the first car in pakistan to have rear crystal headlights.It had two varients. Exi and Exi-s.The Exi had manual windows and side view mirrors,body colored licence plate garnish(not chromed), semi-fabric seat covers, 165/13 tyres,black door mirrors and no high mount stop lamp.But the Exi-s had all these things in it.The outside looked more gracefull with crystal lights and some new lines on the exterior.The engine in both of them were same.But this one had Programed fuel injection(PGM-Fi).There was optional 4-speed automatic transmission available. The engine engine's maximum horse power=90/6400 and maximum torque =11.5/4700 This model was produced until 2003

    Third generation (2003-2005) On 23rd August 2003, the third-generation Honda City was launched which had a totally new shape.It was a very stylish and aerodynamic shape introduced in pakistan for the first time.It also was the first car to introduce i-dsi (intelligence-dual and sequential ignation) and CVT (continuously variable transmission) in Pakistan.It had an engine which is higly fuel economic and was build specially for better fuel economy.This car was equipped with power windows(pinch free) , power side view mirrors, tilt adjustable steering column and yet another first,the EPS or electriconic power steering.it made the steering very very soft to turn and also it had no oil used in it so it had no maintanence required.Other featrure of this car is that its the first Euro 3 comliant car in pakistan,that means that its very low on harmful emmisions.The EURO 3 emission standard are applicable in Europe from the year 2000, they are considered to be amongst the most strict standards worldwide. The standard limits emissions to 2.1 g/kWh CO, 0.66 g/kWh HC, 5.0 g/kWh NOx, 0.1 g/kWh particles. Another striking feature is, the boot space(400ltrs).it was bigger then any local car availabe at that time.This car was basically meant for families.it had two glove compartments,a big boot,empty space under the rear seats, four glass holders,and also, a smal space provided in the two front doors.And guess what? All of these options were available in the basic version.This city was divided on just the basis of the drive-train.One was manual,and other was automatic. On the outside,this car was designed very sophisticatedly,it looked smaller than other cars in size from outside but is alot more spacious inside.the body design was an immediate hit among fans and poeple who knew somthing about this type of things.Even the side view mirrors are designed to cut through air.

    Fourth generation (2005-present) In september 2005,the fourth generation City was released.It was basically a face-lifted version on the previous model.it is known as the City ZX in Thailand, India, the New City in Malaysia and City in Pakistan.The most significant changes are a new exterior (new front grille, new headlamps, new fog lights, newtaillights and bumpers). The front end has been extended forward by 65 mm (2.6 in) while the rear has been extended by 15 mm (0.6 in). The VTEC trim have 15 inch alloy wheels as standard equipment. Interior changes are minor but it does include an armrest for the driver.The rest remains almost same as in the previous model. The engine remains the same but the intake manifold has been modified, resulting a 10% temperature drop in the intake air temperature (IAT), the suspension has been upgraded as well. Honda City in Pakistan are using CVT gearbox for both i-DSI and VTEC variants. The CVT-VTEC 1.5L gearbox is equipped with a Simulated 7-Speed Automated Manual Transmission (AMT) using paddle shift buttons. This is very rare for a subcompact of its class.This VTEC variant was called City-steermatic.

    Honda City Fan Club -214737



    Steermatic:- The steermatic is basicaly a name of a technology used in the city VTEC 1.5L model.this model had a different engine than the idsi.it had a 1.5L engine with an auto transmission.this was not any other auto transmission.its is steermatic,means that you can change gears just by push of a button on the steering wheel.this is basically used in F1 racing.It has 2 options,either you drive on fully automated CVT option,or you select a virtual manual transmission.For this,you would change the gears when you want with a push of a button.This model also have an opitiron meter and also stock imported 15" alloy rims with bridgestone Potenza tyres. This technology is very sophisticated and advanced,which,sadly was'nt accepted by the buyers in Pakistan because they simply could not understand it and hence,this particular model of city was discontined.


    I-dsi:- I-dsi stands for Intelligence-dual and sequential ignation.In this type of engine,two spark plugs are employed for each cylinder.That makes 8 spark plugs instead of 4 plugs used by most cars.Adding of an additional plug assures complete burning and utilizing the last drop of fuel thrown into the cylinders which would provide you the best performace and better fuel consumption.Not all the times the 8 plugs are working,but when u push your car through high revs or speeds,all of them work simeltaneously and thats when ypu can feel the difference.But theres one drawback in it,this engine is equiped with 8 valves not 16.Hence it decreased the performance and city seems to be out of breath after 5000RPMs,but as this is basically a family car,performance is not the priority.The best thing about this was the fuel economy,about which,you can read the paragraph below.

    Fifth generation (2009 onwards) On 31th january 2009,the fifth generation of the honda City was launched in Pakistan.Which was an immediate hit among the fans.The previous Honda City was criticised due to its shape,but this time the best thing was the shape,which is even more aerodynamic then the previous one and also resembles the big Honda brothers,Civic and Accord.The best thing about the exterior of this City is the front view of the car.The wide,sleek and elegently designed radiator grill gives a refreashing look to the car.The dimesions of the car are almost similar to those of the older model.The sharp lines on the hood gives the city some attitude on the road.The boot space is increased about 25%,from 400ltrs to 506ltrs.But the good news doesnt end there,under the hood,There is a fairly powerful 1.3L SOHC VTEC engine.which produces a healthy 100bhp,enough for a 1.3L car.But dont think that you would have to lose something on the fuel economy side to get this sort of power.The fuel economy is actually improved.Some indian car expert magzines gave the figures of 22km/ltr for the auto transmission,which is the best in its class.The emission standards are improved as well.Previous city was Euro 3 compliant,but the new city is Euro 4 compliant.which means that your car is enviornment friendly.The only thing which you need to be concered about is the interior,which feels abit cramped campared to the previous City,but there is a reason to it.In the pervious city.the hood and the trunk had only a small portion of the exterior length covered,and the cabin was much bigger,which gave nice interior space,but from outside,the car looked ugly to some eyes.To correct this ugliness,the car was redesigned with increased hood and trunk length from outside,this made it look much better but the drawback was the lesser interior space.The second thing was the missing silver portions on the interior bits and panels of the Pakistani City.The interior would have felt lively only if some spots of it would have been in silver color.But you have alot other advantages,like 15" rims,ABS as standard,vtec engine,details of fuel milage on a special screen in the speedometer,huge boot and many other small things. In a nutshel,the new Honda City is much more refined comparitively to the previous one.The basic things which matter alot have been improved like the engine and the exterior design.The ride of the car is also improved,thanks to the small changes in the suspension.All in all,its still a great package if you see it the value-for-money way in Pakistani market atleast.

    Fuel Consumption:- The 2005 face-lifted Honda City i-DSI achieved an impressive 26.2km per liter of fuel consumption during a challenge in June 2007. The challenge requires the vehicle to be occupied by 4 persons (including the driver), air conditioning being switched on and a load of luggage. The whole route stretched more than 660km that consists of not only highway driving but also hill climbing. ==================================== Source:-My self mostly,wikipedia and Honda atlas.


    In Short:- In short,according to me,all this proves that Honda City has been a great car for a family to have at all times for more than a decade now.It has proven its self to be a complete car one would need at a price tag it is available for.An im one of the thousands of satisfied owners of it for the past one year. Now all we need are your comments and thoughts upon this small wonder.And also do make sure you post some pix of your own city if you have,of any model.Please feel free to express your feelings about this car.

    Maintainence schedule:-

    There have been a lot of queries regarding the maintainence shedule of Honda City. To help find members and guests find this information easily and quickly, i am writing the complete maintainence shedule which i have been following for the past 5 years for my car (180,000kms).Cost of completing the job may/may not be stated. Some of it may not be the same as that in maintainence book provided by Honda people. In that case, i ll state the reason of the difference.Here goes.

    Oils:-
    Havoline formula 10W30 (3.7ltr) and oil filter change @ 3000kms. Cost 1900rs

    Transmission oil (Manual transmission) 2 ltr @ 40,000kms.
    Honda original oil 1980rs (2ltr)
    Good quality Zic/ micking oil 800rs (2ltr)

    Transmission oil ( Automatic transmission) 2lre @ 35,000kms
    Honda CVT oil ONLY (3.2-3.4L.) 1980rs

    Brake oil
    Keep it topped up and change only if padel feels very soft n goes wayy down.
    Honda original oil

    Clutch operation oil
    Keep it topped up and change only if you it shows signs of trouble

    Parts change:-

    Brake pads change:-
    recommended @ 30,000kms
    Can use any good quality pads. (labour 400rs for 4 wheels plus pads, from 500rs to 2500rs)

    Fuel filter change @ 40,000kms (IF driven on petrol)

    Air filter change @ 10,000kms Original Honda filter is best.Good quality guard filter is good too.
    980rs for OEM, 350rs for Guard filter.

    Spark plugs @ 20,000kms Original Honda plugs (8 plugs for idsi. 4 for steermatic, new city ivtec and before-2003 model City)

    Timing belt. Not required. From 2003 onwards, all honda Citys have timing chains instead of belts.They usually last a life time.

    Tune-ups :-

    Throttle body service @ 20,000kms Cost around 500rs
    Tappets adjustment / valve clearence @ 20,000kms Cost around 500rs

    Brake adjustment front not required after pads change. rear @ 30,000kms (or when front pads changed)

    Expected Life of Some parts:-

    Brake pads 35,000kms if driven aggressively ( cost already mentioned)
    Clutch plate 110,000kms if driven aggressively ( around 2000rs labour and 6000rs for clutch+pressure plate)
    Clutch bearing 150,000kms (So change with clutch plate) (800rs)
    Tuneups can be delayed to 30,000kms IF the car is run in clean enviornment like in Islamabad etc (less dust)
    Engine oil change can be delays to 5,000kms but not good in long run.

    Service Manual Honda City ids-i 2003-2008:-
    http://www.putlocker.com/file/CED54F8B8FB00360

    Tip for keeping automatic transmission (Vario and steermatic) healthy on CNG:-
    Change engine oil at 3,000kms MAX.
    Tranny oil at 30,000kms
    Tune up (throttle and valve clearence) at 20,000kms
    Do NOT ignore idleing problems. Rough idleing means jerks to transmission and thats what kills it on CNG.
    Keep air filter clean and change at 10,000kms max.

    ^^. I think ur ECU is malfunctioning. I'm not an expert. Let Ahmed come. Remove terminals from battery for 15 mins and then plug them back.. I hope it helps.

    no i dont drive it to isb-sgd daily but it makes a trip out of city once a week atleast.
    the door fabric is perfect! not torn or out of its place but its dirty.not toooo dirty but i dont know how to clean it :| would be soooo nice of u if u can find me a way to do that!
    My visit to honda stealership is due tomorow morning, lets hope they dont screw something else in my car like they ve done in my last few visits :|
    okay. get a good upholstery cleaner and clean them its very easy just rub it with a brush and then wipe it off with a clean cloth .

My city does show the check light and the mechanic tells me that it is there because of the oxygen sensor that does relate with what you said. BTW what is pre soak ? :
    Yes its oxygen sensor which activates the check light. Do you feel some vibration or RPM diminishing when the check light gets on? The only experience by me is to get the throttle most often cleaned with the carb cleaner spray, I mean to say after 1200~1500 km

    Why dont you try using a sponge with some liquid hand wash. But do try it out on a small patch first to be sure of the result. I did this exercise and was very glad with thea result. Also was able to clean all the plastics as well. The guy at the service station was asking for 1000 bucks for this which I managed without spending any money whatsoever...just some time invested, thats all!

    P.S: Notice the dim headlight's also...
    dont worry.its not about ECU for sure because as far as i can see, the engine is working fine but electronics arent!
    now, there can be a few things.
    1st is that your battery is nearly dead.but there has to be a reason to explain why.the most probable explanation i can think of is that the generator belt is slipping due to some reasons.may be its loose or its too old and hard to grip now.check it.
    start the engine and stand beside the engine bay.rev the engine while keeping ur eye on the generator belt, located on the left side of the engine.if u see it slowing down or stopping for even a second, thats the culprit!

    the other thing can be a dead generator, got any car washes or drove through more then 1.5-2ft of water lately? if yes, then it can be a dead generator or may be some wire that charges the battery is damaged.

    whichever it is, its certainly not the ECU (and u should be happy its not).take it to ur mechanic after this visual checking of then belt.he ll easily diagnose the problem if u see that the belt is working fine.

    let me explain.

    when the car is idleing, the car gets stable supply of electric power but as soon as u rev the engine (i.e. the belt is being forced to move faster with the engine going faster now) the electric supply fall down indicating that the belt was unable to grip the fast moving sprocket or cog whatever u may call it.but within half a second, the belt finally starts moving with the sprocket and hence the electric power is retained (thats when u see the speedometer needles climbing back up to their place)

    the only explanation i have is that the belt is slipping almost certainly and may be even the generator is not charging to its full capacity because if it did, the battery should be fully charged in a few minutes when the car is idleing (because belt is not slipping on idle)

    hope this helps u narrow down the problem...

    Sooo...... today... it happened.
    i was out of city on my car today and touched 200,000kms
    Now i am proudly the owner of most probably the bazurg-est Honda city in the city fan club

    The only things apart form regular maintainence done on this car as far as i can remember right now is generator belt bearing changed(160k kms),clutch plate changed 2 times(once at 1lakh and then 185k kms) and suspension over hauling (165k kms).all of this i believe should be included in routine maintaince too because,afterall, everything has a life, and considering the mileage at which these were done, i would say they ve lived a long life that too, in not-so-good condition as this is not a lady driven/20kms a day drive/spare untouched/total original/driven on silky islamabad roads type of car. this has been used on the worst type of roads of sargodha in the harshest of weathers!

    Honda City Fan Club -288224

    Honda City Fan Club -288225

    Honda City Fan Club -288226

    and oh, what a coincidence, 100,000kms mark was touched on this very same route going towards sargodha just about 10kms further down this road, in late 2009

    however, if the jerk u feel is a lighter one, i mean the engine just misbehaves and shuts down, its almost certainly due to the tuning. more so because it started AFTER tuning. they ve not done the tuning rightly.

    well just for ur information, let me tell u theres a possibility that ignition coils are fine but still the engine gives the bang that i ve described above.if the tappets in the engine are so adjusted that they open very little (very tight as mechanics say) the car might give the bangs.
    the bang is actually caused when the air going into the engine is blocked because of the very small opening (tight tappets) so this air bagfires and a bang can be heard from the air intake.3-4 bangs are enough to break the air intake box if its made of plastic!

    @imaan1 and @kh_khipk
    can u guys name a good commercial fabric cleaner? or atleast guide me with the steps of cleaning the fabric? should i take it off of the doors or should i clean it at its place?

    Yes its oxygen sensor which activates the check light. Do you feel some vibration or RPM diminishing when the check light gets on? The only experience by me is to get the throttle most often cleaned with the carb cleaner spray, I mean to say after 1200~1500 km
    i would personally advice against this!

    the reason is that this way, u are pushing all the dirt inside the throttle body deeper down the engine.the throttle body is cleaned but where does the dirt goes? into the combustion chamber!! that doesnt feel good! it also means that your engine's plugs suffer the most because they are covered by this dust which came through the throttle body.
    thats why, i prefer taking out the throttle body and washing it properly and disposing the dirt into a sewer rather then the engine and one last thing, throttle cleaning is not neccessary before 20,000kms at all, even in the dusty condition like sargodha, when i got the throttle cleaned at 20,000kms it wasnt as dirty at all.just some blackish sort of thin layer which was caused due to oil in cng.nothing else! hope u get my point!

    Its time for oil change in my car. Want to know which oil is recommended in owners manual Vague Bhai and Ahmed you can tell this. I would be changing it tomorrow or day after so please answer. i was thinking of putting a 20w50 is that right because the engine is giving a tic tic sound and I think 20w50 would remove that because I dont know what previos owner was using and I suspect he was using 20w50. I purchased honda genuine oil 10w30 and its 3700 kms and requiring a change despite a long run to karachi

    @a_n_memon
    hmmm... u have a city idsi with 88k kms on the odo.so its not a very old car.i would say 20w50 can be used but 10w40 would be better.thinner oil is good for newer cars but not as good for ones with high mileage.
    i ve been using 10w40 (or was it 10w30) for a long time and was fully satisfied until recently. i ve switched to havoline cxt 20w40 as my car has a lot of miles on it.

    if the tic tic sound u hear is only heard in the morning (cold starting) then u better switch to 10w30(-50) but if the tic tic is there all the times even if the engine is at operating temperature, then the tappets need adjustment but for the time being 10w30 would be good enough.
    my favourite oil is havoline.have used it for a long time now and always satisfied.started using zic in last winter to enhance cold starting.it did make cold starting easier but i didnt really like the oil otherwise (it was zic A+)

    now u have to decide...

    Thank you for replying .. As expected the car did not start in the morning yesterday. Had to jump start it. At that time everything was working fine but the gen belt was making a strange noise.. So used some surf+water mixture and it worked great.. The car did not give any issues yesterday and i got the battery checked also, it was perfect.. I do think that there is something wrong with the generator.. Before all this happened, the flickering of light's and a/c fan speed fluctuation etc was very very common, sometime's it even caused jerk's.. Will go to honda fort today to get the car checked.. I am however going to get the gen belt and bearing changed as they are still the original's and make noise etc...

    Great! good to know the fault is pin pointed.
    get the belt and bearing changed, hopefully ur car will be fine and there ll be no issues in the generator.
    btw, it can be as simple as loose generator belt, simply tightening it might help because the mileage of ur car is not that much (compared to my 2 lakh kms on original belt and bearing changed just 40,000kms before)

    anyways, get the car checked and let us know if the generator was at fault too or not.

    Btw should i get the fuel pump changed?? My car is almost 180,000km driven on the original pump.. fuel filter's have been changed regularly but people say that i should get it changed as it has been used a lot, though the honda people don't recommend it (neither do they check if everything's working perfectly)..
