    are you sure you wanna do this engine-wearing procedure every week?

    wouldn't it be better to remove the battery and take it up w/ you in the condo then hook it up to a float charger? then take out the car for a drive every month or so

    the battery technology may be 150 years old,
    but the charging technology is more recent.

    Mga boss, sana may makasagot po, nalilito na po kasi ako sa iba iba na sinasabi ng mga mekanikong pinagtanungan ko. Tinanggal po ung battery ng honda city 06 (automatic) ko, bago po sya tinanggal wala po akong problem sa sasakyan, very smooth ang takbo. Nung binalik na po ung battery after ng 8hours siguro hindi ko po sya na check agad, after 1 day ko pa sya nagamit at nung ginamit ko po nagkaroon na ng vibration at low speed, may instance na nakatapak ako sa brake then pag release ko hindi sya aandar at may time din na parang nag jejerk sya habang naka full stop or at low speed, dinala ko po sya sa mekaniko at iniscan at nakita na nag nenegative ung idling kaya pinalitan ang spark plugs at ignition coil. ang tanong ko po kung related ba sya sa pagtanggal ng battery kaya nasira? kasi po ok naman sya bago tinanggalan ng battery tapos nung pagbalik ganun na.

    salamat po sa makakasagot.

    Could have been avoided by just letting it idle for 20mins after putting back the battery. ECU's need to re-learn your throttle body intake...

    read the manual

    there's a section on re-learning the idle speed

    ... or the mechanics could've simply cannibalized your vehicle for parts ...

    Jerking at idle or low speed? City 06 automatic? CVT issues. Mechanic probably did not do the CVT reset procedure din.
