My first guess is the fuel filter is plugged, not allowing the engine enough fuel. I think the knock you hear would be drivetrain parts banging as it goes from sudden power-on to power-off. IT'S DEFINITELY NOT THE FUEL FILTER!!!!!! FIRST IS THERE A CHECK ENGINE LIGHT?? SECOND DID YOU TUNE IT UP WITH AFTERMARKET PARTS??? DON'T USE CHEAP AFTERMARKET PARTS TO DO TUNE UP. DOES IT SPUTTER ON TAKE OFF UNDER POWER?? I WOULD ASK THE DEALER ABOUT THE OBD EMMISSION WARRANTY EXTENSION. YOU WILL GET A FREE TUNE UP AND OIL CHANGE IF YOUR CAR IS EFFECTED. SOUNDS LIKE AN IGNITION PROBLEM PROBABLY SIMPLE TO FIX.

If the gears are slipping on a 1995 Honda Civic then the transmission is worn. The transmission will either soon need to be replaced or repaired.

If the transmission is grinding on a 1997 Honda Civic then the gears are worn down. The transmission will soon need a rebuild so it can operate smoothly.

Drive on a 1999 Honda Civic transmission is labeled as D4. D2 is made specifically for lower gears and to help in situations where going slower can help maneuver the vehicle.

Yes it bolts right up! A000 is dx,lx transmission 88-91 civic. A better option is a B000 transmission which is a si,ex transmission off 88-91 civic, it has shorter gears for more performance.
