    Nissan Pulsar Clutch

    Guys. Recently I was requesting a lot of favors from AL members regarding civic's and lancers; I ended up buying a nissan pulsar. (I know, it bloody weird...) Anyway, I need to know if there is a way to adjust the clutch, because there is a lot of free-play in it. Meaning, i have to lift my foot way too much in order to allow the vehicle to move...like in those indian swifts (beetle)...so if it can be done, please be kind enough to tell me if its costly: any parts need to be replaced etc. (Im kinda week in automobile repairs... :/) Thank You

    Need Help For 1997 Civic Ek3

    thanks alot mate! My budget is actually 1.5mn max bro...i came across some ek3's in the past two days...i guess it was an exi but he said his last was 14.55/= (which is very weird coz he kept sticking to the 5000bucks), but i didn't get it coz his papers were all messed up! Anyways, moratuwa police station yeah??...hmmm...a cop's ek3! wow...well, im assuming you checked the car already? P.S. I had this link for spares in colombo...ill see if i can get you the link!

    Ek3 Non-Vtec Or Vtec?

    does the auto ek3 have any problems??because i've read somewhere in AL that the auto version or multimatic has some problem i guess. So if there are any auto ek3 owners please let me know if its good! guys how much fuel does an auto ek3 do? and what would the price range be for a 1997 b/n ek3, 110000 on the odo meter, 3 owners and auto?? thanks P.S. I know i've said that auto is just not my thing but im in need of a car really fast and i love the ek3 so i figured what the hell let's just check this vehicle out too! And the manuals ive checked till now have had either vehicle problems or paperwork probs (which would turn out to be a huge hassle if it isn't right).

    Ek3 Non-Vtec Or Vtec?

    well, the prob is in a car that i just saw. Thats what the owner said, so im not sure what the prob is. BTW is it ok to use already used starter motor? coz 5k means it has to be used right?(im not sure of the prices of honda parts so im just guessing...therfore if anyone could lemme know abt if the spares are expensive compared to other japanese parts it would be nice)...also like i asked before is there any good shops around colombo which deals with civic parts??

    Ek3 Non-Vtec Or Vtec?

    Guys, how much does the starter motor for an ek3 1996 model cost? and if anyone knows any shops within city limits where i can get good spares for ek3, please let me know. AL seems to have a lot of Honda lovers so I'm pretty sure most of you have your favorite spots, so it'll be much appreciated if you guys could lemme know! Thanks

    Ek3 Non-Vtec Or Vtec?

    Thanks a lot man! Since this is my first Honda, I've got loads of questions about fuel and performance! Do you by any chance know the fuel range for both types? for vtec and non-vtec? Moreover, I've heard that there is the 3 stage vtec which does better on fuel; do you know if it's true? If so what do you think the range is? Problem is I can't afford to put in even 5k more. Well, in that case I guess it's better for me to wait a week or so because they have increased the price of fuel and I'm guessing the vehicle prices might go down. Besides the budget's almost there so that could have an effect too. P.S. I actually thought i could get an ek3 vtec for around 14/50 and reserve the balance 50k to spend on the vehicle because 99% of the time you've got to do repairs right after buying. :/

    Ek3 Non-Vtec Or Vtec?

    Is there any difference between vtec fuel consumption and non-vtec fuel consumption? If so which does better? I would also appreciate if anybody can tell me which is better? main differences in the price range and vehicle differences etc. would help me a lot. My budget is 1.5m P.S. I was going for a Lancer CK2 but after i test drove a civic ek3 i just fell in love with it! Thanks

    Price Range Of Mitsubishi Lancer Ck2

    Thanx for the reply bro! but by miss u mean like if it doesn't start with one start?...if thats what your referring to ill have to go again all the way there. when i checked it at around 5.30pm it worked like a bomb! What he said was that he services his vehicle always at the orugodawatha Unit#d Mot#rs! what im worried about mainly is if it will have proper resale value after the 2012 budget. Coz it is impossible to predict!:/
