Question about 1997 Honda Civic

2 Answers

My engine light won't go out even after sensors have been replace

I recently bought a 1997 Honda Civic LX, with a 1.6 liter 4 cylinder engine. The engine light was on so I had it analyzed and got a PO 135 code, i.e. oxygen sensor #1, heater circuit. I have changed both sensors out and have checked wiring and connections and still the light stays on and I continue to get the same code. The exhaust manifold has been repaired at some point by welding a bead in the middle right next to the #1 sensor. Could this be my problem???

    did you clear codes before test drive ? how did you check wiring ? was there continuity from computer pin to oxygen sensor connector ?

    did you clear code after replacing o2 sensor as it will not go out automatically

Remove brackett from under intake manifold to block you will see a gray or green plug look real close and you will see a bare wire or a wire that has been pinched real bad this wire controls heater circuit for the o2 sensors also check fuse # 15.there is a tsb from honda on this problem

After replacing the Oxy-sensor the ECU has to be reset to clear the fault.

1997 honda civic idle and acceleration misfires


The first you should be taking when getting error code should be to replace the faulty spark plugs and their respective wiring. Also check for faulty distributor and ignition coil. If everything till now is fine then and only then go for cleaning throttle body.

My clutch won't engage 1997 Honda civic


Clutch plate and pressure plate seem to be too weak to pull the car. To test the clutch plate, park the car on flat surface. Pull the hand brake up, start the car, depress the foot brake pedal, depress the clutch pedal, put the car in 1st gear, press the gas pedal and leave the clutch pedal at once, while keeping the brake pedal depressed.
Follow one of the two following statements:
1. Engine does not shut down and remain start. (Clutch plate, pressure plate and clutch bearing defective - Replace all as a set)
2. Engine shuts down. (Clutch system is OK and does not require any repair).

P1361 TDC Sensor Intermittent Interruption (I got this from Engine-Light-Help.com)
TDC should mean Top Dead Center.
It is the sensor that tells the computer the #1 cylinder piston is at the very top. And therefore, fires the spark plug.

Since the maintenance done above, I believe the the timing marks for the timing belt is not lined up properly. Being off by one tooth will cause this problem.
