    Default Honda Civic 7th Gen. Fan Club

    I tried searching Pakwheels.Com for a 'Honda Civic 7th Gen. Fan Club' thread but my search returned no results therefore i thought of making a new thread regarding this. Here is some information taken off Wikipedia regarding the Honda Civic 7th Generation:

    The seventh generation of the Honda Civic was released in September 2000 as 2001 model. Compared to its predecessor, it retained similar exterior dimensions, but increased significantly in interior space thus bumping up Civic to a compact car size segment. There was a flat rear floor, giving better comfort to the rear seat passengers. This generation abandoned the front double wishbone suspension, which had been used in the fourth to sixth generations, replacing it with MacPherson strut.
    A 115 hp (86 kW) engine powered all Civics (except EX and Si), up 9 hp (7 kW) from the previous model. Power in the EX remained at 127 hp (95 kW), and all non-Si engines were stroked to 1.7 liters.

    In 2003, the Civic was given new tail lights which created a circle when illuminated. For 2004, the Civic was given a facelifted front end with new headlights, bumper, and grille; it also received side skirts. In 2005 the U.S Honda introduced the Special Edition. It was available in LX or EX Special Edition.

    The hybrid version arrived at North America in spring 2002.[1] It used both a small 1.3 L I4 main gasoline engine and auxiliary electric motors, producing a combined 93 hp. The electric motors are powered by a battery array which is charged by regenerative braking during deceleration, thus reducing exhaust emissions and extending fuel mileage to 46 mpg city / 51 mpg highway with the manual transmission according to EPA fuel mileage estimates.[2]

    Isn't 5w-20 a little on the thin side? The manual of this car doesn't even recommend this oil grade.

    It's better to use Honda's genuine oil which is 10W-30. I haven't tried this personally but people have noticed better performance using manufacturers like liqui moly, Mobil etc.

    My civic vti is 120k km driven. I have been using honda genuine oil since day one (10w30 API SL) The car is fine, no leaks or anything. I want to go for some other brand and after researching on forums and discussing with couple of members here (thank you guys) i have short-listed few options. Kindly i am not aware if that honda oil was mineral or semi-synthetic

    1. Caltex Havoline 5W40 API SN fully synthetic
    2. Caltex Havoline 10W30 API SM semi synthetic
    3. Mobil Super 2000 10W40 API SM semi synthetic
    4. Castrol Magnatec 10W40 API SN semi synthetic
    5. Liqui Moly MOS2 10w40 (read good reviews but i am not very confident to use it)

    Which one should is the best for my car? I am a little reluctant using fully synthetic because if honda oil was mineral then there will be deposits and synthetic might cause leaks. And according to user manual 10w40 is ok to use. I am very much inclined towards mobil1 was i need suggestions as caltex and castrol are pretty good too!

    one screw is for up-down adjustment while the other is for left-right. The hi-beam adjusts with same screws. Actually its the whole reflector which moves by these screws so you just aim and adjust your low beam and hi-beam is automatically adjust with it. There are markings on plastic for L-R for each headlight oh and see the beam while adjusting... btw it is advisable not to adjust L-R unless your headlights are really off (or car got hit). Read a tutorial on google/youtube so you get a good beam pattern

    Hello everyone,

    Since the 7th gens in Pakistan do not come with an O2 sensor and the mixture is almost preprogrammed based on TPS, MAP & MAF. The question is how do we know we are running lean or rich?

    2 months ago i accidentally replaced my spark plugs from OEM NGK coppers HR 6 to NGK copper HR 5. (heat range). I found out after the plugs had already been installed. The older ones were used for about 33K km so it was time to replace them. Even with the non recommended HR, i decided to give them a go. I noticed loosing acceleration but some improvement in the mileage. Lost the smooth touch and sometimes felt idle to be a little rough. Anyways i continued to ignore and kept driving until yesterday i found the engine to idling rougher and felt loosing power after a 45 minutes rush hour drive.

    I quickly hooked my OBD reader and looked for logged codes. Found AIT code (voltage too high). I cleared the code and moved to replace the plugs in the morning. Replaced the heat range 5 NGK with Denso IK20 iridiums. Found the car to be pulling better and revving smoother.

    The old plugs i pulled out were rust coloured. Now i am not an expert on reading plugs and thats where i need help.

    I feel like i was running too lean ... ? a little hotter? there is some glazing on the ceramic park...

    I replaced them with these

    Honda Civic 7th Gen. Fan Club - 1677703d1460795440 7th generation civic reading spark plugs 20160416 131108


    I am hoping they are the right choice.

    If i am indeed running lean how can i shift the mixture to the richer side of the scale?

    My current IAT reads about 15-20 Degrees over ambient temperature. Is it normal ??

    I am hoping this thread to serve as a guide to reading plugs and interpreting sensor readings.

    Rusty plugs are a good sign of optimal mixture. Lean mixture would look white-ish.

    Which OBD reader are you using?

    No idea about IAT.

    Yeah, i was confused about how rusty they should be. But i guess its all good.

    I am using the normal BT OBD ELM with Torque.

    I checked online and IAT stays about 15-20 DegC above ambient temperature.

    I'm pretty sure you'll be satisfied with it. About your query, do you have a picture of the spark plugs before cleaning them? If not, please describe the colour on the tip of the plug, and what is the make and type of the spark plugs you are using? Do your coils have cracks in them?

    Spark plugs are double tip and they wre brown/burnt from the tip dnt hav the pic actually. Showed to a mechanic near my place and he said its better to change spark plugs as they seem weak. He didnt had them right now but will arrange them tomoro. The coils are good, no fault wat so ever in them
