No its not that way... I just thought maybe they might last longer. I know this is a poor comparison, but ceramic knives seem to take a lot more beating than regular knives, and stay sharper. So I...

I had a 90 civic dx... pretty sure they don't have power steering though I could be wrong. If it did, then obviously it was going out, as well as my current car's power steering is shitty, compared...

I'm not sure if the guy who I bought from has ever changed the clutch before... he said it was his wife's old car, so I'm assuming no. That probably means the clutch <i>is</i> going out. Thanks!
