disconnect battery, remove air inlet hose. Disconnect 12mm nut underneath rubber boot for the battery wire. Unplug spade type connector starter signal wire. The starter is held in place by two 14mm bolts the shorter of the two being the upper bolt, the lower one, which is difficult to see, is long and passes through the transmission into the motor. Installation is a reversal of removal.

No it does not. I have an 88.

I don't have a 1988 honda civic sedan. But if someone did, and that sedan had 14 inch wheels, then yes they would fit on them.

Try looking at the workshop manual

No, the 1986 design is structurally different from the 1988 design. They may look similar, but they are very different in size and shape.

Might have slight differences. They are both in the 4th gen or EF class of civic. 88-91.

Been there, done that. It can't be tightened, you just have to replace it. I bought a used one on eBay for $15.

Who knows the answer? I have the same problem with my 91 Honda Civic Hatchback. Thanks.

A "heater" or a "heater core"?

the best way is to bring it up and back along the firewall accross the back of engine to the right side and up by air filter out of the car.

YES The fuse can be found under the hood near the battery.

Maximum capacity is 11.9 gallons.

The starter solenoid is not disengaging once engine is started. Rebuild starter or replace with a new starter.

Remove the positive cable from your 1988 Chevy Astro battery. Remove the cables from the front of your starter. Remove the starter retaining bolts. Reverse the process to install the new starter.
