Engine Performance problem
2001 Honda Civic 4 cyl Two Wheel Drive Manual 100k miles
Hello to all, I have a 2001 honda civic, 4 door, lx. This car use to be immaculate with fuel consumption! Now something is wrong and I cant figure it out. It seems that the gas needle is wrong, the needle fluctuates. For example, if its on half a tank, I drive a couple of miles, stop and turn off the car and the needle goes down a quarter, then picks up again. I have tried the following: tune up, oil change, aired tires, gentle driving, synthetic oil, gas additive. I took it to honda and they "claimed that they checked the speedometer cluster and it was good. They claimed it was the send receive unit, which is attached to the gas pump/filter, of course honda was gonna charge an arm and a leg so I bought a used/tested fuel pump/filter send recieve unit and installed it. Problem is still there! Help! I own this car and this gas issue really bugs me and is pushing me to trade in and buy another car, but I cant afford that route
have the same problem?
