    As of lately my 01 Civic has been acting up. Im taking it into the shop this week.

    When I brake it starts to shake like its going to turn off, but its only when Im coming to a stop. Doesn't do it when Im on the freeway or anything. It has turned off on my a couple times, but I can start it right back up again. I was told it might be the idle. Anybody have any idea what it might be and how much it might cost to fix??? :dunno:

    is it an automatic tranny? could be faulty torque converter lockup. shift into neutral before you brake for stop and see if it still does it.

    Yeah its an automatic. I tried it and it doesn't turn off when I put it in neutral. I guess maybe that's what it is. I wonder how much that's gonna cost to fix??

    if it's just the torque converter, then new ones run $300-600 depending on specs.

    you say it's an 01... Is it still in warranty? Honda has a 5 year, 60,000 mile powertrain warranty (unless it has the extended warranty). Take it to the dealer and find out. Even if it's out of warranty by a little bit, sometimes you can get em to "good-will" the repair :cool:

    yea, if you have the extended warranty they will definitely cover it -- its the powertrain, afterall.
