Civic HEV IMA Battery
Do not try to do anything you see in this video unless you are already a
trained professional. This battery pack has the potential to kill you and
cause property damage in a number of ways.
Honda and Panasonic did an excellent job in this well thought out design
and build of a battery pack. This just a basic overview of some of the
clever things that were done in this gen-1 2004 model year Honda Civic HEV
IMA battery pack. The pack has 120 cells that are welded into 20 subpack
sticks of 6 cells each. The cells were rated by Panasonic for 6Ah. The
Battery pack was used to power the ~15 kW IMA motor in the Gen-1 Civic HEV
Considering that this battery technology is from the late 1990's it has
impressive performance for its time, especially the power Watts per unit of
vehicle space ... W / L.
About ~40 Wh / kg ... ~119 Wh / L ... ~691 W / kg ... ~2,232 W / L.
It was discharged at up to a ~18.8C rate in the Gen-1 HEV Civic.
Of course battery technology has today come a long way sense the late
1990's... but that's a different topic.

2013 Honda Civic Hybrid Test Drive & Car Video Review
http://www.autobytel.com/honda/civic-hybrid/2013/?id=32972 The Honda Civic
Hybrid may be the least incognito hybrid car on the block thanks to the
fact that this vehicle is practically the same as a regular model Civic on
the outside. For the 2013 model year, the Civic Hybrid had been updated
with new styling, added technology, and more. The base price for the 2013
Honda Civic Hybrid is $24,360.
A 1.5 liter 4-cylinder engine and an electric motor live under the hood.
The engine makes 110 horsepower and 127 lb-ft. of
torque. The hybrid IMA (Integrated Motor Assist) system adds an additional
23 horsepower and
78 lb-ft. of torque. The transmission is an economical CVT unit. The IMA
system helps the gasoline engine whereas other hybrids on the market can
run on EV power alone, the Civic Hybrid cannot. Other items that help with
fuel economy are the low rolling resistance tires and the start/stop
system. The Civic Hybrid nets 44 MPG on the highway and 44 MPG in the city.
Safety features include forward collision mitigation and a lane departure
warning system. The interior is nicely appointed and much better than
previous years. The infotainment center is equipped with a backup camera,
Navigation, Bluetooth, digital music connectivity, apps, and more.

Honda Transmission Rebuild Video - Transmission Repair
On this video we see what it takes to Rebuild a Honda Transmission, what
parts it takes and what has been working to correct some of the common
failures on these transmissions.
Blue Overheated Torque Converters has been a common issue on these
Transmissions for a long time and we still see this regularly to this day.
Although there are various shift correction kits and special valves out
there, all work really good on correcting the issue with the lack of
converter feed fluid. I like them all. So if a deciding factor is important
to you on which method to use, all I can say is this, They all work.
Keep in mind that there are "other" fixes or items that can be added to the
rebuild, but it is not really necessary if they're not really needed, I'm
not mentioning any but I know some of you will.
With that being said I like to thank you for watching this video and liking
it and sharing it.
Thank you guys for your support.
