Customer Question
2008 Honda Civic won't...

2008 Honda Civic won't starts sometimes after replacing engine wire Right n L, new thermostat, ignition coils, new spark plugs, it has 93000 miles when I got it, I've put 444 miles on it. I got it in 12/17 n on 1/1/18 it wouldn't start.

Mechanic's Assistant: Have you checked the battery, particularly the terminal connections? Are they corroded?

No, I will have that checked this morning. Will that cause it

Mechanic's Assistant: Are you fixing your Civic yourself? What have you tried so far?

Yes n no, it was in the shop last week, he put on the engine wire, everything else I did. That's the only thing I've done

Mechanic's Assistant: Anything else you want the mechanic to know before I connect you?

No, thank you

I just heard from my mechanic. You were right...a $45.00 job. THANK YOU!! Your response was received in less than 10 minutes!!

Linda B.USA

Your answers were clear and the diagrams were perfect. Dealer wanted $87 for an hour of labor and even I did it in 15 minutes.

EdUSA

HONDA PLATINUM was great. I really appreciate his help. I was ready to trade my new Honda until he told me to wait until I got 3,000 miles on it and my gas mileage would get much better.

SummerUSA

I took the Power Steering O-Ring service bulletin linked from JustAnswer to my Acura dealer, and not only did they no-charge the o-ring, they also replaced the power steering pump at no cost.

Gary RStevenson Ranch, CA

Wonderful service, prompt, efficient, and accurate. Couldn't have asked for more. I cannot thank you enough for your help.

Mary C.Freshfield, Liverpool, UK

This expert is wonderful. They truly know what they are talking about, and they actually care about you. They really helped put my nerves at ease. Thank you so much!!!!
