Hi there. I've got civic 57 reg diesel. Sometimes when I start it "check engine" sign comes on and there is also strange noise when I start it( not always although). I've been to Honda main dealer twice and had service done, they could not detect any problem.does anyone have any clue what the problem might be? Thanks

My last Diesel was a Rabbit & no issues however, in those cases when the car is cold and does something that cannot be duplicated during your visit, best bet is to leave it a Dealer for at least two days in the lot & ask the Tech to go out and start it several times throughout the day specially in the morning and he's bound to replicate it. A $20 inside a handshake in gratitude will do it (been there, done that) Good luck! Remember I said the Tech not the Service Writer!

Thank's for your advice!
