Oil pan - you need to get under the vehicle and remove the engine support that runs under the engine from front to rear. Remove all the screws holding the oil pan. Clean off the old gasket from the oil pan and engine block completely. They may need to be scraped to get them clean, but don't scratch the surfaces. Use a little silicone sealant (rtv) to stick the gasket to the pan. You may wish to put a little sealant on the block side as well. Then put the pan back in place and attach the screws loosely. Tighten them up slightly in cross patterns (not in a circle). Then tighten them a little more in a cross pattern. Then tighten them all up a final time. Wait a few hours before you put new oil in.

The shifter light on the center console of a 1999 Honda Civic can be reached by removing the center console assembly. Loosen all of the proper screws and pull off the assembly. Once the bulb is visible replace the unit using an appropriate sized bulb.

Have a 94 Honda Civic LX. Radiator develope a hole and overheated the engine. Dealer quoted price of $1900 to replace cylinder head gasket, valve covers, timing belts, water pump (other things as well). Plus replace radiator. Cost includes sending out gasket for surfacing.
