    Default Honda Civic accelaration and pick problem

    My Civic 2005 Vti Prosmatec which is just 16.5k kms run is posing problems to me. I think it doesn't accelerate according to my accelerator pedal push. I consulted a mechanic who told me to adjust its tappet since they need adjustment after 10k kms but I didn't get them adjusted until I get an expert advice. Moreover, I got it checked from Honda City Sales who advised me to test the car using their HIM (Honda Interface Module) but they didn't find any problem from this test. Further, I am running it on LandiRenzo CNG kit but I don't think there is any problem with CNG setting because I feel this lack of acceleration on Petrol too.

    I felt this deeply when I visited Murree and nearby areas and my car was not picking acceleration while Suzukis were speeding around. I have also inferred that automatic transmission is not advisable for hilly areas since my car didn't shift gears back even when it should have done it. I had to put the rpm down to zero then it shifted from 2nd to 1st gear.

    I need your expert advise on this issue. Should I get engine's tappet adjusted? Does Honda have some electronic tuning and tappet adjustment tools for engines? What can be the other causes for this problem and possible workarounds?

    MY car has never been on CNG and even then I experience the lag. Although the downshifing problem does not arise all the time but it happens every now and then especially on plains. I've never experienced the downshifting problem on hilly areas.

    the purpose of honda's PROSMATIC is to keep the car in lowest gears possible on hills and at the same time to keep an eye on the fuel consumption. when ur foot is off the accelerator the car keeps in high gears but shifts in lower afterwards. if there is any problem in tappet, the car will produce a sound from exhaust like PHUK PHUK, ROUGH NOISE, or else problem with cng. it ruins the car man!

    Hello!
    All i can say.....Say Thanxx to PROSMATEC for all this....!
    CNG + Prosmatec....! or any HONDA Auto...!
    i think its not a good idea to convert any Auto HONDA on CNG.....Specially HONDA Auto......!
    Have seen Toyota's And Nissan's running fine on Auto Tranny but listen many problems regarding to Honda's CVT Trannys....!
    Regards
