Question about 1994 Honda Civic
When I start my car my engine revs up without the accelerator pressed. The tachometer maxes out. It almost burned out my clutch. Initially the problem was that my car kept sputtering even when I pushed the accelerator to the floor. I changed out my spark plugs thinking that was the prob. When I did this my engine started reving on its own. I put the old spark plugs back in thinking the prob was the plugs but it continued doing the same thing
I have the same issue, but have a 1990 Honda Civic Automatic DX Hatchback. Periodically, the issue occurs when going from 2nd to 3rd gear. I'll hear a slight "click," the Check Engine light will come on and the car will start sputtering even with the accelerator pressed to the floor. What I normally do is pull over, turn the engine off and restart it and the system seems to reset itself. I've taken it to several different mechanics and none of them could figure out what the problem was since it wouldn't give any codes for the diagnostic machine. Any information on this issue would be greatly appreciated.

I have the same car and the same problem it is your rev-limiter its a wire problem there is not much you can do but replace your wire harness and it will not burn out your clutch if you have it in neutral so don't sweat it.mine has been doing it for about 2 years its nothing that will do any real damage hondas will run forever just as long as you keep the tune ups on it.oil change,trans fluid,spark plugs etc...

It may also be the iac(idle air contorl) this is a common problem with these cars it causes them to rev and also another common problem is the tps(throtle position sensor) have someone check these sensors out it may lead to your problem
