  1. Service News Staff Managed Dealer Information

    Honda issued this TSB# HUK000000001167 for all Honda Civic FD3 for model years MY 2007 & 2008 dated the 02-07-2008

    After auto idle stop, when the engine restarts, the CVT transmission bangs and/or shocks.

    Because the setting of the start clutch oil pressure control after auto idle stop was not appropriate, the oil pressure of the clutch was excessive. Due to this high pressure the clutch does not engage smoothly.

    The setting of the start clutch oil pressure control after auto idle stop has been changed, so that the clutch engages smoothly.

    Application to Production Line
    All vehicles with a VIN after the one shown will have the countermeasure applied on the production line.
