>see red lights and am sitting in say 4th gear
>clutch in switch to third, rev match a little so it doesnt lurch

Exhaust is engine layout, firing order, header type, crossover exhaust or not, muffler type, resonator type, and single vs dual. Not specific to a car. But I do enjoy mine with an h pipe and Magnaflow catbacks. Just need a j pipe setup fabbed to kill highway drone.

I just bought it Saturday and going from an SUV to a coupe, I feel like it will now be, counter intuitively, easier for my cycling hobby. I've decided to not get trunk mount rack, and just go full blown Trail Hitch (I guess they only have Class I for Accords) which should be plenty, for a couple 30 lbs mountain bikes off the tongue...

I just don't full trust 1 1/4" , I fell like a 2" hitch would be so much better, even for just some bikes. But at 75 mph, (slow lane cruising here) hitting a bump... some 100lbs of bike and rack with 3 feet of leverage from the hitch receiver.. that's a lot of force for a little 1 1/4" rack4

Well, I actually sold it a few weeks back, so there are still people interested in this car. I honestly don't know. I wouldn't probably buy the 1st gen, but post-facelift (commonly referred to as 2nd gen in my country) might be the way to go. Basically they built a whole new car that had some of the parts common with the previous one. I would go with 2004+. I wouldn't go with auto tranny though (I love autos in my daily), since somehow they decided 4 gears is enough. You should also look for a car that has 'sport' button in the suspension control area - it means you've got additional spheres (1 per axle, giving you 6 in total). That makes the car a little bit more stiff and makes the suspension last longer.

Repair-wise I would say there's not much to talk about - suspension is simple and cheap in repairs, in fact, everything is cheap in this car (interior quality as well, frankly). The only thing that sometimes goes bonkers is electronic, but for me it was only minor things - window switches sometimes closed instead of opening and vice versa.

For the past two years this car was used for hauling a lot of shit like a frigde, dishwasher and various trailers. I even used it to pull a snag out of the ground once. It was the most reliable car I've ever had and selling it was somewhat difficult decision, but I wasn't using it for a few months already, so it had to go.

So /o/, i need your (((professional))) expertise and recommendations.

I currently have a 3k civic I bought off of a family member (old woman) last year, who bought it brand new in 2004. She followed the maintenance schedule religiously at a Honda dealer, unironically following the time-recommendations instead of the mileage recommendations since she literally put about 3k miles per year on it.

It has 40,000 miles as of yesterday. It's pretty damn clean, not one speck of rust, cloth seats are probably clean since I put seat covers when I got it. Body is not horrible, but definitely needs a good buff to get the surface scratches out. Slushbox, roll-up windows and no remote locking (but it does have central locking, oddly).

It's definitely not the most fun, so I want to change it. Since pic related, I'm looking for a good 4x4/awd, or worst case fwd. Winters are harsh up here, heavy snow and road salt and all. I'm willing to spend up to 10k, preferrably seat 4 (minimum extended cab for pickups) and be decently reliable.

>>18054798
I had plenty of fun in my 3k civic. You're doing it wrong. Get some snow tires and keep it.

The car came with hakkapelliitas (or however the fuck you spell it), which were great last winter. I forgot to mention that at 6'2" and 205lbs, it's not the most comfortable car

also what do you mean by dead head?
>>
>>18054920
pumps are designed to move fluid at a certain flow rate. if your carb is rated for like 3.5 psi, the bowl and the jets will only allow so much. you can get it to run, but you will spit fuel all over the place or just constantly run rich as fuck. there is a subsequent back pressure on the fuel pump that forces it to work extremely hard because there is no where for the flow to go. thats called dead heading. the return line allows the pump to continue to circulate fuel.

Okay guys.

I'm back.

I've cranked the carb down better so gas has stopped leaking.
I've redone the distributor to spark plug hookups (they were hooked up wrong)
I've adjusted the rich/leanness ratio on the carburetor.

It cranks farther and better than previously, but still doesn't want to start.
I don't have any time off until next Sunday, but I'll be pulling the spark plugs again and then seeing what's going on.

I'll figure out what to try next from there.

Can you deal /o/?
