Question about 1996 Honda Civic

1996 honda civic check engine light

No that is pretty much it. The light did not come on until he switched the air intake, I just got worried. This car was purchased by my 16 year old from a sleazy private seller and has been nothing but a money pit. Thank you for taking the time.

Your welcome and anything else you need just let me know. and one more thing you could check would be the vacuum hoses to see if one got knocked off while installing the air intake

Undefinedas replacement on civic 98 sensor p0113

Possible causes for this code are: - Faulty Intake Air Temperature (IAT) sensor
- Dirty air filter
- Intake Air Temperature (IAT) sensor harness is open or shorted
- Intake Air Temperature (IAT) sensor circuit poor electrical connection. this code sets when: - An excessively high voltage from the sensor is sent to ECM. Usual Possible symptoms - Engine Light ON (or Service Engine Soon Warning Light) P0113 1998 Honda Civic Description The Intake Air Temperature (IAT) sensor is built into mass air flow sensor or in some vehicles mounted to the air filter duct housing. The sensor detects intake air temperature and transmits a signal to the Engine Control Module (ECM).The temperature sensing unit uses a thermistor which is sensitive to the change in temperature. Electrical resistance of the thermistor decreases in response to the temperature rise. The Intake Air Temperature signal is used as an input for various systems in the vehicle.

My 2002 honda civic has a check engine light which is showing iac code 505, what is the problem

Take out the air intake tube that goes to the throttle body and start the car. Now have someone hold the gas peddle so the engine stay at 2500 rpm get a can of carburetor cleaner at your local parts store and spray into the throttle body. Car may shut off start it back and repeat process until half of the can is left. reset engine light

Honda civic hatchback idles really high

The person that told u that it was the tps and idle air they we're completely right!! The tps sensor is what makes it do that. If you pull the air intake of there's 2 holes on the throttle body. Plug one of the off with your finger while the engine is idling high and it should come down mine was the top hole. If it does go down just get a new tps sensor. and the back sensor on the intake to be safe. or the ghetto way is to plug the hole off, not my sugestion.

Have they checked the O2 sensor, some times the engine will "hunt" if the car isn't getting a consistent signal from the O2 sensor. A car may "hunt" if there is some kind of interruption or disturbance to airflow.. check your air intake as well, i had a friend who had a dead rat in his.

sounds like your fan is not turning on, check that first. if there is air in your system you have a leak. you cant bleed the cooling system, you have to first recover the freon, preasurize it to see if you have a leak, if no leak vacuum the lines then add freon.
