    Default My Baby Just Turned 18 (Honda Civic 1997 VTi)

    Today is my Cars 18th birthday. It has aged pretty well not a single spot of rust and still seems young even in comparison to todays cars that might be because of its futuristic design and head lights. I don't feel like I drive an 18 year old car. Its handling, pick, durability, comfort is not less than its modern counterparts. It has driven about 250,000 kms. I got its engine overhauled a year ago. Which turned out to be a pretty good experience and I am satisfied with it. Never felt underpowered when overtaking newer corollas, civics etc on local roads and motorways.

    Answers of your questions one by one
    1. It doesn't require frequent replacement of parts apart from air filter,oil filter, ac filter.
    2,3.4 Parts are easily available not that much expensive eg new water body costs 2400, kabuli power steering pump 2000,2500 USe ngk spark plugs specifically for civic. Parts are available at bilal ganj.
    5. I don't frequently clean the engine bay never washed it with petrol or direct water. I just get it cleaned with air and sometimes I use degreasers.
    6.easily available at almost every car decoration or parts shop better buy kabuli genuine. I never bought them though as mine are still original.
    7.I bought a clutch plate for around 5k and pads for 2k of nissin brand.
    8. I don't use any :-)
    9. Its highly recommended that you flush the radiator and use caltex coolant in 50 50 ratio. One litre costs around 900. Buy three. Check pipes ,thermostat radiator for leaks. You will not need to top off the radiator again for at least a year or two.
    For appearance I only used formula one wax polish and shampoo, glint for windows, luster like sprays for plastic parts. Dirt and grim remover for rims. Paint is still all genuine it didn't fade. I never used compound on it and never got it serviced at a pump.
    Past cant be brought back ..but future can be made even better than the Past..if one wants to.. ....

    For getting the gear oil checked go to a oil changing shop or mechanic ask him to check the gear oil. for kabuli parts go to bilal ganj.I change oil after 5000 km which viscous even at that time. On gas you have to change early.

    Only mess with the engine when you are facing the following
    1. Poor mileage
    2. Engine reducing oil
    3. Smoke from silencer
    4. Engine misfires
    5. Lack of power
    6. Engine vibrates
    7. Engine stalls
    8. Engine leaks
    9. Coolant level reducing
    10. Oil film observable in coolant

    The power steering pump is not a big issue just an 30,45 minute job. It will cost you 3000 including labour for kabuli. Make sure they bleed out the bubbles.

    Main reason is people have a perception that local mechanics lack the ability to do so (which in my case was proven wrong) secondly swaping an engine is cheaper than overhauling one but that hits the resale and you have no idea of the engine history.

    It does this a lot even after when it comes back from a drive and I rev it to about 4 rpm in the porch. I don't drive above 3 normally. May be its the humidity . Water throwing engine. Thinking about getting a stainless steel exhaust set up.
