    A couple of interesting issue.

    Replaced the wheel bearing, no change. The everything seems tight with no issues. The steering wheel shimmy occurs at about 100 km/h and continues from there. If I clutch in and go into neutral, it remains with no change in frequency or intensity, not RPM or gear related etc. I wonder if they...

    A couple of interesting issue.

    Gonna replace the wheel bearing. Clutch is still an interesting one tho. Bleed it, works great for 15-45 minutes, then intermittent shutter returns. Even after bleeding hot, cold, dry or damp. If its bled, it works great. Hard to tell if air comes out, but I'm wondering if a minimal leak in the...

    A couple of interesting issue.

    Hi all, hope everyone is doing good. I have a couple interesting and unrelated issues here on my 2012 Civic LX. Trying to shed some light, although I may have already. First, I had previously mentioned some clutch shudder that I had it was mostly intermittent except after the second which was...

    Stripped bolt hole

    For anyone wondering, I ended up going with Permatex Steel Weld Epoxy. Rated much stronger than JB Weld, and reviews show the same. The description even states that it can be threaded and can be used to repair stripped threads.

    Stripped bolt hole

    I do have a positive experience with JB Weld, I had to re attach an exhaust finisher bolt. While obviously not torqued quite as high, it seems to have done good with 20ft lbs and heat. Will report back.

    Stripped bolt hole

    The other 2 bolt holes are good, torqued to spec, 60 ft/lbs. I wonder if doing this one and then torquing to spec would support 60 ft/lbs. The transmission mounts aren't torqued like the other two mounts on the car (bottom mount requires over 70). I'm going to try the JB weld and report back, I...

    Stripped bolt hole

    its a 2012 Civic LX, the bolt is the transmission mount bolt that has the stud coming from the transmission. The aluminum hole for the stud has the threads stripped out. Good to hear about the JB weld, given the other two are holding good (torqued to spec), and that its on the motor side of the...

    Stripped bolt hole

    Hi all, I was changing my air filter today and noticed one of the transmission mount bolts was not secure. I backed it out and noticed the hole has been stripped and won't secure tightly now. Does anyone have any recommendations? I don't really want to spend too much money, and the other two...

    Shudder when engaging clutch

    Interestingly enough, I had a new clutch fork, slave cylinder rod, release fork bolt, release fork spring installed and the clutch bled. All seemed good after, however a slight shudder/vibration has returned, albeit not nearly as bad as before. Could someone by any chance show me their stock CMC...

    Shudder when engaging clutch

    I did some more troubleshooting today. I unbolted the slave cylinder from the transmission, the slave cylinder is new so I didn't take it apart. I cleaned up the pivot ball location, as well as the slave cylinder rod. I added some high temp urea grease to the pivot ball location and drove the...

    Shudder when engaging clutch

    I found this, I wonder if the external causes could be the case in this scenario given 3 clutch replacements. 1 by an independent shop and 2 by Honda. Would there be a way to test?

    Shudder when engaging clutch

    I'm wondering if it is axle related. There is some slight vibration under acceleration, but maybe not more than what would be expected. I only slip the clutch briefly during the e-brake test, just to make sure it isn't the clutch that is the issue.

    Shudder when engaging clutch

    I do have both sets of replacement parts, they look fine. Not sure why the shudder would only be present when the wheels are moving. If the e-brake is engaged enough to prevent the wheels from moving while still engaging the clutch, it doesn't shudder or vibrate at all

    Shudder when engaging clutch

    I've been in contact with them and they are thinking that it isn't the clutch. I imagine that would only leave the axles?

    Shudder when engaging clutch

    I replaced it with an OEM one, no real cracks on the old one. I can tell there is a new mount in the car...seems a bit tighter. But the shudder still occurs.

    Shudder when engaging clutch

    I replaced the lower torque mount. The shudder is subdued but still the same type of shudder. Likely the new mount just dampening it better. Any ideas as to what it may be?

    Shudder when engaging clutch

    Thanks guys. Regarding the intake tube. I'm unsure how that cracked. Given its accordion structure, I would imagine it can take quite a lot of flex. Thinking maybe the piece was defective or the filter being changed tore the rubber somehow. Either way I'll be looking into that for sure. Thanks again

    Shudder when engaging clutch

    I think that's what I'll do. Any other thoughts as to what may be occurring? When the clutch is engaged, the car drives fine other than a very minor clunk when letting off the gas abruptly, maybe pointing again toward the torque mount.

    Shudder when engaging clutch

    Yup a new throwout bearing each time. I'm wondering if it is the lower torque mount, because about a year and a half ago, I had a cracked air intake tube and under heavy acceleration the tube crack would open enough that the MAF would no longer read the correct volume of air in the intake, thus...

    Shudder when engaging clutch

    Hi all, roughly 10 months ago, I had the clutch replaced on my 2012 Civic 1.8 as per Honda's recommendations. I didn't really notice anything wrong with the clutch other than Honda saying it would need replacing soon, roughly at 180,00 kilometres. There was a slight shudder on hot days when...
