3rd gear was popping out and grinding when shifting. This is a common issue that affected 8th gen manual civics. A TSB was issued but only covered a narrow production range. My car was technically out of the range but affected by the problem. The dealer in my town replaced 3rd gear under an extended warranty I purchased. This repair otherwise would have cost me >$2000 but my warranty deductible as only $150. I also had the dealer replace the clutch at this time as it was nearing the end of its life. This cost $950 for an OEM clutch.

The trim piece that runs the length of the car and sits between the roof/hood/trunk and the doors has begun to deteriorate. The rubber has peeled of in long strands that flap agianst my car on the highway and is very annoying. These parts are no longer manufactured, incredibly expensive to replace/ship, and will likely never be replaced on my car. They do not seal any interior compartment against water, but they do apparently help with aerodynamics and noise control for the cabin.

The problem was a p0456. That could be a lot of different things, including a gas cap leaking air. (It could also be a leak anywhere in the fuel system.) I bought a new OEM gas cap, as I'd been told that gas caps account for 90% of check engine lights with this number. Either it did not solve the problem, or I will have to disconnect the battery to see if it does, and I haven't done that yet.

I complained about buzzing engine noise at 1400 rpm. Dealer showed me Honda doc about similar noise due to water pump/alternator drive belt. This would be replaced when water pump pulley recall is done. Parts were ordered. Drive belt and water pump pulley, the recall-related parts ordered per previous trip, were replaced. Water pump and gasket were replaced pursuant to a factory recall at no cost to me. I didn't get a recall notice, but maybe first owner got it before I bought the vehicle used in April 2009. The recall seems to have eliminated the 1400 rpm buzz also.
