Default Getting some of the power back.

I have a 2002 Honda Civic LX 5 Speed Sedan. It has about 175,000 miles on it and its in great condition minus a little ding in the door. Its definitely lost some power over the years, not to say it had much to start with, but i was wondering what i could do to get some of the power back without spending too much money. Currently i'm in college and won't be working again until summer, but any suggestions will be appreciated.

Dear Pgraham 09 ;

You can do a lot of free maintenance to UR Honda Civic LX to restore its power
to a reasonable level with out spending a lot or Nothing at all.
In UR weekends / free times.

Like : {{{ See in YouTbue how they do these OP'S & Checks :::::;;
1 - Clean the fuel intake air filter using shop air / clean from inside out.
2 - Check tires for proper inflations. Reinflate the low tires.
3 - If U can check fuel filter {s }. Replace any dirty filters.
4 - U can pull each ignition plug by it self & clean each adjust the electrodes gap to specifications
{ U'll find plug gaps in the engine compartment or owner booklet in the gulf compartment
or surf internet for UR Honda Civic / Model / Type / Year .
5 - They normally do a general Tune Up;
Which include, but not limited to the above mentioned Items.

6 - Change from using low grade octane to a higher one.

7 - Check all oil / fluid levels.

8 - Don't over speed on any highway.
Especially sudden accelerations.

9 - Slow down before U reach a stop sign or traffic light to reduce the usage of brakes.

I think UR driving habits will either reduce or increase UR cost of maintaining UR vehicle.

Final; I urge U to surf the net especially YouTube videos sections
{{{ vehicle }}}to see how U can maint / overhaul / check / Inspect UR vehicle;
And I'll be glad to help U any time.
