    Default 2006 Civic Vti PRos Fuel economy Issue

    The problem i am facing with my civic is that it is drinking a lot of fuel. the avg is arounf 3-4kmpl. i have a very light foot. so driving fast is not the issue.

    The details of my cars are as follows.

    1. 2006(old shape) Vti oriel Prosmatec
    2. 75600km driven
    3. engine is d16w9
    I have checked everything from the fuel tank till the cylinder head. everything seems fine. I have been doing a bit of searching around and was told that the trim pot needs to be adjusted and that the ATF in the gearbox needs to be cleaned.

    can you help me regading this problem.

    i need to know the exact location of the trim pot as well.

    ATF in the gear box needs to be cleaned? Man change it. ATF oil is a must replacement at 40k and you have driven your car for almost 76k km.
    Take it to Nazir autos and get it's injectors checked/cleaned and check spark plugs and ignition coils also. Replace fuel filter also.
    Do you feel some delay in Acceleration/pick of car? If yes, then get it's fuel pump checked also.
    Lastly. Get it's fuel tank and fuel lines check for any leakage.
    If still no improvement. Then go for a compression test of engine.

    Got the ATF cleaned today by 3s Honda.
    spark plugs are new
    iginition coils checked
    Ingectors checked
    No delay in acceleration at all.. ni missing nothing. no irregular gear shifts.
    fuel filter cleaned


    all of the stuff even the diagnostic test has been done by Honda 3s. But still there is no imporvement, it gives me around 170-180km in a complete fuel tank.

    i have changed the fuel pump as well. still no improvement. any other suggesion?

    Get your fuel lines and fuel tank checked for any leakage and clean the fuel tank. Also get your exhaust system checked.
    Also get compression tested. It will give you a clear idea of engine's condition and health remaining.

    For all those who are claiming hondas are not good at mileage. Well it's true in case of 7th gen. But 8th gen and 9th gen are far better.
    But still 170-180 is way too much. Itna to cruiser b nae khaati.
    Last resort. Sale it and start searching for some other car.

    get the exhaust checked with a sniffer, it seems that your car is dumping fuel, this can be caused by a screwed up trim pot (some jackass trying to incraese parfarmanss) or something else is sticking. Does your car have its original ECU? and is the CEL working? Its not unknown for Pakistani electricians to bridge the CEL to the battery lamp just to make it disappear.

    Already got the fuel lines checked along with the tank.

    what do i get the exhaust system checked for?

    well is the compression test in any way suppose to link it to it?


    The main thing is my car doesnt feel sluggish or heavy, its great in pick and is very smooth :/
