Hey gang, CNGchat needs your help!

For over a decade we have enjoyed providing this little corner of the Internet for folks to discuss all things natural gas vehicles. It is the largest forum of its kind: with some 70,000 posts on over 11,000 topics. But with continued low gasoline & diesel prices and strong automaker support for electric vehicles, consumer interest in CNG has dropped considerably, and with it has visitor traffic here. As a result, Google ad revenues no longer cover hosting fees.

If you find CNGchat to be a useful resource then please consider making a modest donation to support keeping this remarkable pool of knowledge available to the alternative fuels community. Thanks!

  • Rear shock and spark plug replacement 2012 Civic

    The rear shocks on my 2012 Civic CNG need replacement.
    Does anyone have a part number and/or specific vendor for replacements?
    Any comments on the complexity of this job? Can I do it in my driveway?

    The service light on my dash says A124 and that 4 includes spark plugs right?. Any thoughts on this as a DIY?

    Spark plugs are a 1/2 hour job if not seized in the head. Use only the oem spec plugs. They are nickel plated for corrosion resistance. available in both NGK and Denso. Some dealers are charging almost $30 each, way over list price.. Can be found on the internet for about half. Bernardi honda, honda parts cheap. Use a torque wrench when you put in the new ones, and inspect the coilpacks for cracks when they are out. The plugs are usually first due at about 105,000 miles.
