Tappet gap on 1.6 2003 vtec civic


The firing order is 1-3-4-2. The gap is listed on the emission information sticker under the hood. This sticker will have lots of info which includes valve lash. It will be listed in millimeters, example: 0.22 +/- .02mm. Some feeler gauges list both standard and mm measurements, otherwise a conversion can be found without much trouble. This procedure should be done while the engine is cold to get the best results.

I have a 1996 honda civic vtec, my battery will not stay charged took my car to autozone, checked the alternator, battery and there both good. what could be the problem why isnt the battery staying...


I not that familiar with the honda civic vtec, but most cars have a voltage regulator for the battery. Many of the new alternators have this item belt-in, but others are separate components. You may want to check to see what your design is for your model.

My 96 civic 1.6 dohc vtec wont vtec any suggestions why this would happen


vtec is controlled by oil pressure so first check the oil, if it is low that can cause it. if you change your oil the way you should then the solenoid could be bad on most Hondas it is right by the oil filter.

P1259 is a code for vtec malfunction usually cause by a bad vtec solenoid, vtec pressure sensor, low oil level, bad connection. Was oil change done? May want to check the oil level. P1166 is a code for a primary o2 sensor 1.

2001 honda civic obd code


reset the ecu pull #6 fuse 15a for 10 msec. check oil level fill if needed. start engine hold at 3 grand for at least 2 sec road test if still comes back 1259 repeat 2 times. If it is gone it is intermit problem check for loose terminals at VTEC solenoid vavle oil pressure switch and the ECM/PCM. If you still have the code turn ignition off remove resonator disconnect the VTEC oil pressure switch 2p connector check for contnuity between VTEC oilpress switch terminals 1 and 2 if none replace the oil pressure switch. if yes measure voltage between ECM/PCM connector B9 and body ground. Voltage? repair open wire between B9 and the oil pressure switch. If no than the ECM/PCM will need to be checked for the latest software and reprogrammed to be further diaged. This will only be able to bedone at the dealer.
