Should I keep my Civic

Hello! 

I have had my 2005 Honda Civic Coupe EX (165,000 Miles) for many years now. It is a manual transmission and tends to burn oil quite a bit. The transmission makes some noise or is clunky when I am going from park to drive. Is it worth keeping and spend some time and money trying to fix it and tune it or buy a new car that has more space and suits my needs better. Or if anyone knows an honest mechanic in the Orange County, CA area that would be appreciated too.

Manual transmissions do not have Park or Drive.  When did you last change your PCV valve?  If that doesn't help, get a compression test to see if the rings/valves are worn out.

My bad I meant automatic...sorry. Thank you for the Response! I have never replaced the PCV valve before.

Uhhhhh… that’s not a manual. Check the fluid level and quality.

What you usually do with cars that have over 150k miles is live with the small faults, junk or repair when something expensive goes wrong.
 
If it’s not burning oil because of a PCV valve, and if it’s not shifting correctly into gear because of bad fluid - there’s almost certainly no cheap way to sort it out, I would never spend so much money on a car with almost 170k!
 
or buy a new car that has more space and suits my needs better.
Why not? The Corolla/CH-R/Corolla Cross are good options.

My bad..... i meant to say automatic, ive been looking at manual transmission cars a lot.

I don’t know of any guys in the OC for Honda. I was looking at The Toy Shop in Cypress for Toyota. And I am looking at Honcura for Honda in Glendale, which is a bit of a drive for you. 

I haven’t been to any of these shops myself. But these are my top choices if I want to try a new shop in the area. 

I have gone to Japanese Auto Center off of Sherman Way in North Hollywood. But that is super far for you.
