  1. Honda Insight Forum 1st-Gen Discussion
    Greetings! I have not been active here in quite a while. My Y2K Insight #4581 turned 20 on August 28th based on its Certificate of Origin dated August 28, 2000. I am still driving it as my main vehicle but in the last year it has really started to show its age. I currently have three significant...

  3. Honda Insight Forum 2nd-Gen Discussion
    Hi, I own a 2012 insight and have owned it for about a year now. I love everything about the car except for the inconsistent cvt transmission. An example would be, let's say I'm coasting down a hill with no throttle input (IMA on charge) and I slowly get on the throttle pedal. I would get a...
  4. Problems and Troubleshooting
    I have a 2002 Insight with 212k miles. The transmission works well, however there is a whine while in gear. It is louder when in forward but still noticeably when in reverse. The whine is not present while in Park or Neutral. I did a lot of research on this forum about the bearing in...

    Bull Dog’s HCH Transmission Swap Anthology While I was down in Southern California this winter, I purchased a 2005 Honda Civic Hybrid 5-speed manual transmission from a nearby wrecking yard. Scott (KLR3CYL) and I rebuilt it with all new bearings and seals and afterward, we installed it into...

    2001 MT, factory-new boxed trans at 104k miles (original had ISB failure), now at 193k miles. Started popping out of 4th gear, but unlike the old trans ISB failure, this trans is completely quiet. No metal visible in the oil. Motor-mounts look okay. No problems with other gears. Pops out...

    I've got a transmission and an engine from a 2000 Insight that I'm ready to sell. I pulled these from a junkyard car that had hit a guardrail and was scrapped. I initially bought them because I was paranoid about my transmission failing, however I've had zero issues and am ready to clear out...

    Located in Tiffin Ohio Engine and transmission for sale from a 2000 Honda Insight with approximately 140,000 miles on both of them. The engine ran great and I’m asking $300.

  9. Problems and Troubleshooting
    Hello, So I'm pretty certain I have a bad ISB on my 2000 manual insight. I'm insecure about cracking open my transmission to replace the bearing, so right now I'm planning on swapping out the whole transmission. I will only have a few days at my brother's garage to do the swap, so I felt it...
  10. Modifications and Technical Discussions
    My insight has 164.000KM, and it was time to change transmission fluid and spark plugs. Before the change, the car tends to jerk at 30Km/h its like it just slams a clutch hard and then goes forward. So just driving 30 Km/h and then rpm drops to 750 then spikes to around 2-3000RPM and then it...

  12. Problems and Troubleshooting
    A couple of weeks ago, I made a right turn in my 2001 Honda Insight and accelerated to enter a freeway on-ramp. As I did so, power to the drive wheels ceased and I coasted to a stop on the access road. There was no unusual noise from the transmission. Neither drive nor reverse worked. I had...
  13. eBay Auctions: Honda Insight related
    I am looking for a 1st Gen CVT for my 2002 Insight. I lost "Drive" going down the highway and from what I understand I need to seek out a donor to get my ride up and running again. Does any have a CVT for sale or know where I could find one?

    Hey guys, The five speed transmission case recently cracked due, (I think), to a fifth gear synchro problem. I am wondering if anyone is trying to sell a manual trans in any condition? Most of the internals are still okay, and if I can find another bell housing, I would like to swap them over...
  15. Problems and Troubleshooting
    I hear a front-end scraping type noise in my 2000MT 215K miles Insight, especially in lower gears, both while accelerating and coasting. I have no shifting problems or anything that may indicate transmission is bad but my mechanic states with certainty based on the noise alone, the input shaft...
  16. Problems and Troubleshooting
    I have a 2000 Honda Insight with 170,000 miles on it and a five-speed manual, my wife's daily driver. Two days ago it began to develop a harsh scraping sound, like disc brakes make when a car starts rolling after it has been sitting in a rainy environment for a few weeks, when the car is in...

    Well I decided to fix my spare Insight but wanted to be prepared for the worst when I dropped the transmission out of it to see what was wrong. I picked up a CVT transmission to put in it when the old one came out. It turns out that the flywheel was bad in my existing engine and my stock CVT...
  18. Problems and Troubleshooting
    My 2001 1st generation insight has developed a strange pattering noise. It happens only when the clutch is in, disappears if the clutch is depressed and is most noticeable in low gears and accelerating but is there in all gears. It is also there faintly when in neutral but again disappears when...
