Default I need some help!

the first thing is simple and i was just wondering how to replace the drivers side headlight bulb on a 1999 civic si. My hands are to big to get down in there and was wondering if there was an easier way of doing it?

Also my car runs great most of the time but sometimes it starts to get real rough. Espescially in 1st and 2nd gears and when you are on and off the gas through the gears. It also starts to have an unconsistant idle. I have no idea what this could be and was wondering if anybody could help me out. thanks

I hate having to change the bulbs in my eh. Last time I did it I just used my fingertips and tried not to scratch the bulbs. They placed the power steering reservoir way too close.

You need to pull the code for your CEL before anyone can help you.

hey,
i had a similar problem in my 99 Si and i found that my idle air control had shorted out which caused a problem very similar to yours...i would say take that out and put in a good one and see if that fixes the problem...

and check your coolant level
