    Default Honda Civic Oriel CNG 2003 Isuues and HONDA's Expensive repair

    I have HONDA Civic 2003, running on CNG, I am facing following problems:
    1- AC is fine at night and at highway, in city traffic i feel more comfortable with my windows open. AC woh nah hy jaisa howa krta tha. Moreover, air vents for wind screen throw air even the air vent pointer is at my face. Its motor is running fine just when i point air flow towards my face a little amount of air begins to flow through Wind screen vent too and water vapors can be seen at night outside wind screen at that specific portion. (worried about opening & closing of dashboard etc. ) HONDA walay khty hain A.C service karwain aur service charges are 4000. 1000 shall be for checking, and the price of any installed part would be included at that time.

    2- My brake pedal has gown down, and when i apply brake suddenly (not emergency) a sound like "GRRRRRRR" comes out and car moves forward and it seems that the rear wheels did'nt stop. My hand brake is also weak. You need to pull it full for parking on a steep surface. Asked honda Rs6500 for front disks, Rs4500 for rear disks and repair would be Rs2000

    3- RPM was dropping and the car was vibrating especially on signals, however, it did'nt stop at signals. I went to a CNG wala. He checked the plugs and told me to change the plugs. The already installed plugs are NGK With a green colour writing on them. He showed me DENSO, BOSH plugs as he did'nt have NGK plugs but i was not satisfied so i asked hime to just clean the plugs and re-install them. He did same, increased RPM litle bit, Car now does not vibrate, and rpm does not go below the 400. But it looses pik at some points. When you apply accleator it does not give a quick pik but when you apply slowly it gets pik. But some time it becomes absolutely OK. (Maza nah aya uss ki tunning ka)
    When i asked HONDA about plugs the price told to me is "1640" rupees for 4 plugs of honda genuione. 1000 for throttle cleaning and 900 for general tunning etc.

    4- Someone told me that Transmission oil needs to be changed at 30,000 km mine have gone upto 100000, from where should i get it changed, honda or anyother option.

    I am new in Karachi, i don't have any connection and previous expperience of repairing of car in karachi. So, i opt for HONDA service center but their cost discourages me.

    Suggestionss!!!

    First of All u do not need to go to Honda 3s for ur repairs..i havnt visited them eva..
    Ur point number 1 shows that there is something wrong with the blow vents and a low pressure gas in ur cooling system..Go to any local AC service shops and they wud do it at half the price Honda is asking for.
    Ur brakes need to be serviced too..buy Honda Brake pads from any local Auto Parts dealer and get them changed frm the mechanic of ur choice..The hand brake can b tightened,,its no big issue..
    Change the tranmission oil..get the trottle body serviced..increasing the rpm wont solve the issue..there no need to change the plugs unless it is due..Also make sure there is no air leak at the venturi(this is the KEY to prevent rpm drop)..
    Honda has no magic wid them,,relax..ur car just needs its regular maintainance..
    FOCAL /// PIONEER /// AUDISON /// KICKER /// JVC /// PHOENIX GOLD.

    more or less ali 454 is right..first thing is k you dont panic on the estimates given by honda as they dont deal in **** and bits and offer whole assembly e.g as in my case i needed hub bearing replaced, what they offered was the whole hub which costed 4 times more then bearing it self.
    have u drained oil from cng kit and cylinder ever since cng was installed? if not then get it done it helps. best of luck

    Would I be able to buy Honda Genuine Brake pads, and plugs (NGK PZFR6F, DENSO PKJ20CR-M11) as recommended by manual from A SHOP except honda walay!!
    Also tell some couple of things more, which way oil should be changed , through sucker machine or by unscrewing chamber nut.?
    Regular screwing or unscrewing of chamber nut make it slip owing to its handling by different mechanics handling different ways. I am thinking of changing oil through the use of sucker machine as i have just gone through CHAMBER CHOORI REBUILT PROCESS!!!!
    When the time for tappets adjustment comes and How do one comes to know.
