My 1992 Honda Civic has a lot of power loss, I don't know why. I have had the fuel pump put in it and fuel injectors and a oxygen sensor. When I drive it, it feels like it's bogging down.

I am the second owner of a 1992 Civic EX-V (Bought in 1996 with just over 100,000 km). The cra now has 272,000 km and has performed well for me. Only repairs other than timing belts, brakes, clutch (at 250,000 km) have been replacement muffler and radiator. Other than minor things (A/C had of course worn out) like lights going off on dashboard and broken glove box I think it's been a great car.

I own a 90 civic. Had a distributor problem, way back when. Had it replaced, and it went bad again.
Enter new dealer: This guy happily told me the distributor was on recall. New Honda dealer fixed the problem (for good) and reimbursed me $500. I've been going back ever since.

1992 Honda Civic EX-V
I received the vehicle as a gift. I think the car had been sitting outside for months. Typical rust in rear wheel wells - spread throughout the side wheel wells under the paint job. Initially, the vehicle overheated, brakes gave out, and CV Joint made tons of noise. Minor things include: broken dimmer switch & non-existent A/C. The engine and transmission run fine (manual). These are the repairs I have done to it so far:
- replaced brake master cylinder (quite leaky)
- replaced 2 front rotors & pads (front brakes seized)
- replaced rusty rad & thermostat (also the top hose)
- replaced both CV sleeves (if exposed too long, dirt can get in and make it unsafe to drive)
Did it through a local mechanic - parts alone cost roughly $1,100.00 CAN (not including labor & tax). Post-repairs, the car runs quite well - I hope that I can squeeze another 100K out of it. This is the 3rd Honda that I've owned (2001 Accord LX-V6 & 1999 Honda Civic SE) - this 92 Civic still hauls (125 hp VTECH), Hondas are definately dependable IF you take care of them.

If it's an auto, get the cooling system looked at. This is what the garage did to mine; no more bogging down.
