Where is the oil filter located on a Honda Del Sol?

From the fornt of the car, the oil filter is located at the back of the engine about in the middle. You can reach it from underneath by lifting the car in the front, and supporting it with jack stands. Slide under to the rear of the engine. Look up and you will see it hanging down.

It is best to have an oil filter wrench. I taped mine so it wouldn't fall off when I turned it. Use the new filter as a guide.

Once you remove the old filter, be sure to wipe the filter area clean. Then, lubricate the new filter o'ring with new oil. Screw it back on, and hand-tighten only. Jack the car down, fill with new oil, start the car and check for leaks. That's it.

After running for a few minutes, turn off the engine, and wait a few minutes, and check the dip stick. If necessary, top off the oil. don't overfill though.

Then go enjoy your ride.

How Do You Remove the door panel of a 1994 Honda Del Sol?

There is a plastic screw up by the dash board, take that out. There is also another screw, under a round plastic cover, by the handle were u would close the door, take that out. There is a third screw under a little plastic cover that's part of the door lock/latch mechanism. Then there are poppers all along the sides and bottom just pop them out and then the panel should be free. push the panel up not towards u and it should pop right off.

The lock/latch assembly slides forward and out, then feed it carefully through the hole in the door panel.

Don't forget to disconnect the wires and door handle cable before you pull it all the way off so they aren't damaged. (they will be easy to see when you have it loose.

How do you open the trunk of 1993 Honda Del Sol with a broken lock You cannot open the trunk by going in behind the seats because the back window rolls down?

You will have to drill a hole into the trunk. The best place is behind the licenses plate towards the center with a metal hole drilling bit. You'll get a clear access to the door lock. Mind you you'll meet at least 2 layers of metal. Thick metal. Trust me I had to do mine.

drilling a whole is the wrong way >< the correct way... use a leghty crow bar, or pry bar to pull the trunk lid up, not so hard as to break or bend the trunk lid, but hard enough to get about 1/2" clearance so you can see the lock, then carefully use a Sawzall with a metal cutting blade to cut the latch... Easiest way and doesnt damage anything if done right, also you can get a new lath for about .99$ at a junkyard...

How much and what would you have to do to change the transmission of a 1993 Honda Del Sol si auto to a manual?

Probably it cost you just to install like not more than $500 in the shop unless you know somebody will do for you. but if you want make it cheap try to shop around and one thing try to find a tranny first so it make more cheap usually you fin this in some junk yard and also you need to find a clucth cilinder and a clucth pedal.

AnswerThis is a daunting task. You would for sure need a donor car for parts. The price of the parts would be way more than the car is worth, without a wrecked donor vehicle. I have did this in the past and would advice against it. Sell this car and buy one with a manual. Answer

It would be easier to get a new motor entirely.

The parts incorporated with the transmission include: clutch, clutch pedal, clutch cylinder, shift linkage, air intake, solenoids, header, ECU, and throttle.

At this point all you'll have left from the original is the block, and will have spent countless hours on it, just buy a donor car with a manual and swap the whole thing.

If you're interested in things like this i would suggest going to honda-tech forums, they're very informative and helpful

What happened to the Honda Del Sol?

Honda said no more. the del sol replaced the crx which was a great little car. the problem with a del sol from a performance stand point is it is overweight. that is besides the point though. Honda got rid of the del sol. they probably were not selling enough.

In the U.S., Honda sold 25,000 del Sol's in the first year (1993), but only 5,603 in the last year (1997). ( http://www.automotiveforums.com/t305664-faq___del_sol_general_info_and_questions.HTML )

Both of your del sol's doors are unlocked but the mechanism inside is broke and the doors won't open How can you get into your car?

I accidentally did this when I was changing out my door handles. You need something long and thin like a yardstick or a thin stiff metal tube or something of the sort use the poor sealing ability of the roof to your advantage and slide what-ever your using as a tool down between your glass and your rubber seal. Jam it in the door lever and pry outwards and walah! door should pop right open. It's basicly just poking it with a stick and fiddling till you get it just right.

If there a smell of hot ATF fluid coming from your automatic Honda CRX Del Sol does the ATF simply need changing?

If you can smell hot ATF it is probably leaking from somewhere and getting all over the exhaust. Look very carefully for any leaks. It could be dripping from the seal around the transmission pan or more commonly out the axel.

How do you remove the stereo from a 1994 Honda Del Sol?

you need to remove the cover or whatever you call it to get to the radio. then you have to unscrew the radio and then you can just pull it out. it should take you no more than 10 minutes. remember though that the the piece is a big it goes from just after your shifter to just below the temperature gauges. I have a 1993 del sol. What you should do it remove all the screws from the center consol including the ones on the cupholder / arm rest. You want to remove the whole cupholder assembly first by lifting the edge closest to the rear window. Disconect the cigarette lighter cable and set the cupholder aside. Now you want to put the car in D1, if you have an automatic, to remove the upper assembly more easily. Unscrew the housing around the sterio and you're done. Remeber not to disconnect the factory sterio if you don't know the password.

How Do You Remove the door panel of a 1992 Honda Del Sol?

Not a complete answer: Go to your local library, and check the Haynes manual: Honda-Civic/CRX/Del Sol 1984-1985. Section 10, page 15 has Door Panel removal and installation instructions with pictures. While the 1992 is a JDM model, and not covered by Haynes (1993 onwards-US and Canada only), I am assuming that fittings, bolts and screws will not vary over the years from personal experience: if you open the door you can find a screw at the front window side (on the top)

the second screw is located behind a small cover behind the doorhandle (the doorhandle has 2 clips you also need to remove)

the third and also the last is behind a cover behind the grip. after you removed all the screws you can rip of the bottom (they are clips) and after you did that you can lift the entire panel upwards from the window. i did it last saterday because i had to fix a problem with my door handle.

Is there a chime for the headlights on a 94 Honda Del Sol?

Answer
No, there is no chime, which sucks because i left my lights on and killed my battery.
The '92 European version does have the chime, and as far as i know all European version have the chime
There is a way to install a $3 relay under the dash that ties the "key still in ignition" beeper to the headlights. That is, when the headlights are on they activate the installed relay that activates the switch in the ignition keyswitch. The car thinks the key is still in the ignition and beeps when the door is opened. It is simple, elegant, takes a few minutes to install, and I have not killed a battery once since installing it. Search the Internet for the install instructions. Three wires. The relay coil goes from ground to a signal from the headlight switch. The switch contacts go from same ground to the appropriate wire of the ignition switch. Signals can be found using a schematic if you can't find instructions on the net. The relay is a 12V reed relay from The Shack.

Where is the clutch safety switch a 1993 si del sol and how do i bypass it or remove it?

The clutch safety switch is located at the clutch pedal arm same as the brake light switch but slightly bigger.....To bypass the switch, just disconnect one wire or put a jumper wire accross the 2 wires to the switch depending on how the circuit was designed.......Since it is called a safety switch I won't recommend altering it....

How do you remove the back bumper on a 1993 Honda Del Sol?

not sure how old this is but I'll answer it. when ur looking at the back of the car on each side of the back of the rear wheel well you'll find a Phillips head screw holding the bumper on there. then under the car you'll find 2 10mm bolts. ok now the fun part, you have to open the trunk and remove the carpet covering from the back and along the bottom you'll find 4 10mm bolts, one on each side and two sort of in the middle. then you sould be able to wiggle it free, but be warned, its very hard to get it back on once its off.
