i need urgent reply regarding honda civic 1995 problems & solutions
i have a civic 1995 excellent performinace from last two years
but suddenly i face a problem . main nutt of the pully behing engine below is getting loose and i approched mechanic he tight it because it is getting stuck and not opening up
what is the permanent solution? and what should i have to do about this problem?
As far as i understand if u r talking abt the main pulley which is located on the left side of the engine seen from the drivers seat looking front thats very crucial in Honda engine because all the other accessories like the power steering A/C and alternator are being driven by it so u better get it fixed there is small carter pin involved in the pulley which serves as a locking mechanism and holds the pulley in place if not installed properly u can run into serious problems and might do some serious damage to ur engine ask the mechanic to inspect the pulley and the carter pin and if its damaged or cracked get him to replace it it doesnt cost much from shershah or from any other kabariya perhaps in the range of 2500 to 4000.
i just replace the old damaged nutt which is broken inside pully hole and remaining part of that nutt stuck their and after great affort it was broken down crush into pieces and again replaces with the new old kablee main nutt and i buy it for just rs. 500 from rwp mithoo khan market.
my car now ok Now please next what should i do to be satisfy about it as i must need some advise.
hondas tend to have a problem with the main pulley and main pulley bolt....as the engine spins in opposite direction to tightening the main pulley bolt.
what u should do is... apply loctite threadlocker to the bolt...and then tighten it according to torque specs. will never face a problem again..
here is what loctite looks like... Loctite Consumer Retail Products | Product Detail
oh and also check your main pully and crank for any wear or damage from running with the loosened bolt.
