SOURCE: check engine reads P0740 honda civic

I am sorry to bum you guys out, but this usually means the piston in the torque converter is bad. The converter needs to be replaced along with a transmission flush.

SOURCE: my honda civic 98, had a check light engine ON P1361 and P1399

P1361 is an intermittent signal from the TDC sensor .. thats located under the top timing belt cover on the right side of the engine .. about half way down that cover is the connector for the TDC sensor .. check that connector and its wiring ...P1399 is an ignition problem .. and thats likely caused by the TDC sensor being intermittent .. you might be able to fix the connector if its loose or full of water but the sensor is hard to get to .. very tight place to work in but not impossible .. this is something that should be fixed soon .. no emergency but the timing may drift off if the problem persists ..

Overheating when I sit idle.


Over heating the engine is a serious concern. With the hood raised you should hear the motorized fan turn on just behind the radiator as the engine requires additional cooling.. If you look in from the rear of the radiator you should see the fan blades.

This electric powered motor operates on a thermostat and when the engine temperature rises this fan should come on. I'm assuming from your description that when driving and air is flowing through the radiator as the car travels the engine is nor overheating.

Check fan motor thermostat, check fan motor and check wiring.

My 1998 Honda Civic is overheating. It has plenty of water and oil. Can only go about 5 miles before white smoke starts and the temperature gauge starts to rise


look for bubbles in the radiator while the car is warming up (be careful of hot coolant spitting out of the cap) if there or little bubbles it could be a good indication of a blown head gasket or cracked head

My civic did the same thing, twice, no over heating on the gauge, but the head gasket on both engines broke in the same place, #1 cyl. there is a TSB on the head gaskets, I replaced it with a felpro head gasket, had the head checked for cracks and decked, runs smooth and my wife gets 40 MPG
Pull the #1 spark plug and check for coolant on the plug. make sure you flush the cooling system.

Replaced cooling temperature cooling sensor on my 2005 Honda Civic 1.7 and the temperature gauge still is not working properly. Can you help me ?


There will also be a temperature sending unit which provides the info to the temperature gauge. Track it down and replace it as well and you'll probably have a lot more success.

Hope this helps,

Temperature guage is fluctuating between zero and half way


First make sure your cooling system is full; a low system will casue this.

If coolant is full, have your temperature sending unit checked, if thats not it its actually the gauge bad

Either way, get it repaired...heat in the enginer is the #1 killer of honda engines and their head gaskets/heads...and you want to be able to monitor the temp. closely
