  1. yeah best bet would be asking the mappers and they should be able to point out the mods to you, alternatively upload some engine bay pics and we might be able to have a look at whats been done, being a diesel, could be basic exhaust upgrades, downpipe is the most common upgrade, can be a number of things but doubt its something more technical if it looks stock
  2. hi, they seem to be standard Accord wheels, either them or off the Prelude, im sure theyre standard Honda wheels from one of the two. actually more than likely its off the prelude because thats a 4x114.3 PCD car just like your civic, (i may be wrong) but i think the accord of that generation is 5x114 PCD.. hope this helps answer your question thanks ahmed
  3. hi welcome to the forum, if it says Aux then it has an auc port, im not sure where it is in the mk8 civic, but i have a mk8 accord and its located in the central arm rest glovebox area hope this helps thanks ahmed
  4. hi and welcome, worth a try putting up on the facebook owners pages too, but as you mentioned, we cant get far with pointing you in the right direction without a pic of the car or reg.
  5. car not starting? what to do if your car isnt start during lockdown and quarantine i made a quick video showing you how to diagnose your battery / alternator and starter motor? common problems basically i went to my honda accord and as its been lockdown here in the UK i havnt been out at all for the past 3 months or so and the car didnt start because the battery had gone flat over this time and didnt have enough juice to turn the car over. i got the car jump started using some jump leads. the car started perfectly fine on the first turn once connected to some jump leads. this tells us that the starter motor is working using the volt meter, we can see if the the alternator is working and sending charge to the battery. the battery voltage reading on standby should be 12V as seen on the car battery. so with the car running, if the alternator is working and doing its job, it should be giving power to the battery and the reading should be higher, usually around 14V. as you can see in the video the reading while the car was started was reading 14.0V exactly on the digital voltmeter. this tell us that the alternator is working properly. the final check is after when the car is turned off, the battery should be reading 12V because its a 12V battery, anything less, this tells us that the battery is not holding enough charge / needs charging or it needs replacing. common faults can include the cells within the battery dying... to do this quick check, the tools i used include; jump leads - to start the car volt meter - get the volt reading link on ebay to the voltmeter - China https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/254619292208 Link on ebay to the voltmeter - UK based seller https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/203026799442 link on ebay for the battery terminal crocodile connectors (these do not come with the volt meter, but are not required because you just need to touch the wires to the battery terminals but i have added these for ease) https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/400818460871 this is a quick check which will work on all cars. apologies in advance if this post is not allowed. i thought id share as other car owners may experience this same issue and its a quick guide where they could start thanks link to video https://youtu.be/zdAR6D2aVE4
