Default Re: Honda Civic : Maintenance, Service Costs and Must dos

Hi sumeethaldankar,
Took the car I am planning to buy to HASS and did a general check up and also a scan.
Checked the history record also. Other than periodic servicing, no other major job done in any HASS. Odo reading is matching with HASS record.
Now tell me, for the scan, I got the printed report and lots of "DTC not found" status.
What does that mean?

Thanks in advance.

Thanks!
Man, that hurts! It's a bad hit but I think if sourcing an old lid is an issue then a skilled denter can fix that as good as new; as coolcurt says.
Much better than scouting for an old lid or worse, getting a new one from Honda and declaring bankruptcy!

Regards,
Saket.

That means you're good to go. DTC or Honda DTC stands for ''Diagnostic Trouble Code" No DTC is no error codes being thrown up in the scan.

The current Odo is 92K... it's a 2010 1.8 vMT.

Having been increasingly concerned about high pollution levels especially in heavy traffic, I was contemplating purchasing a HEPA rated car air-purifier. While researching the market, it occurred to me that a HEPA-rated cabin air filter for the Civic ought to do a similar job.

A bit of a search online revealed that there seems to be only one HEPA-rated cabin air filter for the Civic now and this is made by Bosch (and seems to have been introduced only in 2016). This filter is rated to provide filtration efficiency of 99.97% at 0.3 microns, which is comparable to that of air purifiers. In comparison, a regular cabin air filter is rated to filter particles over 5 microns. Many auto emissions are under 5 microns, especially what has been called PM2.5 emissions.

The bad news is that this filter isn't yet available in India and this was confirmed by a friend who works for Bosch India. Fortunately, another friend was visiting from the US and readily agreed to carry a couple for me.

Here are some pictures:

I installed it today. I plan to test it and report on what I found.

I bought an Altech cabin filter for my Civic. About ₹700. I also, got one for my Brio. The quality looks excellent, in fact it is almost as if it is an Honda OE as can be seen at amazon.com etc. Who knows they may even be supplying some types to Honda.

I also just bought it, my brother carried it from USA. I will also update on its performance.

I have got another one https://www.amazon.com/Cleenaire-CAF...er+honda+civic

The filter element is very thick and feels heavy. I'll try this out also later.

Moved to Melbourne sometime ago; had to buy a car overnight, ended up with a Civic, it completed 10 years recently; in those 10 years and ~186K kms, no parts have been replaced apart from regular consumables.
Engine mounts are finally showing their age though

That's brilliant. Driving on Indian roads take a much bigger toll on our cars. Keep the beauty polished!

The bottom cover of the front bumper has weathered away over the years. So much so that there are only bits and pieces left and some parts dangle below. Even the tyre well has bits of the plastic worn out so much so that even the engine bay is visible.

can you get a replacement just for the underside bit or so I need to get the bumper replaced?

Ah, the bottom cover. I think its called a splash shield or splash guard.

Mine just fell out, tore open and spilled an empty-looking box and a pipe. Wonder what it is. A quick google search tells me its some piping to the resonator box. Could someone tell me what these things are?

Is it safe to drive?

The resonator box is an empty box basically and is connected in the path of the air filter. What it does is basically reduces the extra resonance which can be heard from the intake manifold side. Basically helping in making your car sound quiter or more smooth. Kind of. This is my guess. Maybe a bit off. Didn't google it though.

So absence of it won't kill your car. As far as I reckon.

Splash guard is different. It's a more polished term for mud guards. What I'm looking for is probably a part of the bumper.

While sound control is indeed part of the resonator's job, the sound control itself is really more of a side effect of its primary purpose. An air intake resonator isn't just a sound muffling device, it's actually an important part of the engine's intake system, and may add a significant amount of horsepower thereby helping to make the engine quieter and more powerful. I would have that looked into.
