2003 Honda Civic 4 cyl Front Wheel Drive Automatic 25000 miles
SOS please. I have a Honda Civic Coupe 1.7 Vtec Automatic gear box.
Here is a history before the problem come :
Last month, the ABS light was on by dashboard. The following day I took the car to local garage ( not Honda Approved garage ) and asked them to replace with a new genuine ABS part. Also I asked them to put a new genuine Front Brake Pads.
All it has been doneand mo more ABS light showing on dashboard.
Here is the Problem :
3 days after; By the way - I work in the Hospital 4pm -12pm.
On the way to work: The first 800 metres driven the car, the brake was a little sticky - I pushed accelerator pedal down, it showed 3800 RPM on Speedometre but the car only run 5 miles/hour ( should be 40 miles/hour ) and after 800 metres the brake become normal again.
From work to home: The problem was happened again. The first 800 metres driven the car.
So I took the car back to the garage and tell the prob to the mechanic.
It has been nearly a week, the mechanic have not found the problem yet.
He replaced, rechecked and clean agin the brake pad a lot of time. There is no 100% Faulty Code.
Last time I call him, it sound he might given up !
My question :
Is it a Brake System problem or Automatic gear problem?
