1999 honda civic ex (automatic) studdering/missing when driving

Hello, I have a 1999 honda civic ex with 189K miles on it. Its an automatic, i have done a tune up about 5 months ago (plugs,wires,cap,rotor,air and fuel filter) and just about after that when i was driving on the freeway id get a slight miss here and there, recenlty its been getting worse, not today it just shut off in the middle of town and then i restarted it. twice today now. anyone know what this might be? i thought it might be bad gass, so i ran it all out and put a differnt company gas and fuel injector cleaner in. Thank you. Kodi

p.s. plug wires are all in the right order too, and spark plugs are gapped correctly.

SOURCE: oil inside cylinders

oil inside the cylinders happens two ways...bad or worn piston rings or bad valve seals.  If you do a compression test this will tell you what the problem is.  when you remove your oil filler cap with the motor running is there a lot of pressure coming from inside the engine?  If there is, as I'm suspecting you are sadly suffering from a worn out engine.

SOURCE: 1996 Honda Accord Rough Idle Even After tune up

Perform a valve clearance inspection and adjust if necessary. Tight or sticking valves will cause a misfire or rough running concern. Note: Perform valve adjustment when the engine is stone cold. 4cyl: INT 0.26mm EXH: 0.30mm (V6 engine are hydraulic and no adjust necessary.) Also check for a sticking or stuck open EGR valve. For diagnostic purposes only: Remove the EGR valve. Place a business card over the EGR passage and bolt the EGR valve back on. This plugs the EGR ports and if the misfire goes away the EGR valve is partially stuck open and is defective.
Check for low fuel pressure. Check for low compression. Check cam timing. Check for a weak ignition coil. Also don't over look the possibility of worn or broken engine mounts which cause excessive engine movement and engine vibration. -hope this helps

Sounds like you are on the right track. Most vehicle manufactures want the fuel filter changed every 20 to 40 thousand miles and I'm guessing yours is from the assembly line. :) It could also be you injectors a little dirty and with low pressure it is dribbling rather than injecting.

2005 honda civic ex automatic stalled at 40 mph


Check the main fuses under the hood. There are several large ones there. A loose connection on one of them could have caused the sudden, complete electrical failure you described. If it is a loose connection, it would certainly explain why it "came back to life" by itself.

Also, might you possibly have any sort of aftermarket security system that has an immobilizer feature on it? While I wouldn't expect this to disable the entire car including the radio, if it were incorrectly installed I suppose it could.

I hope this help. Good luck!

1999 Honda Civic EX fault codes 1366 and 1399


This code is not documented so the code reader is giving a false reading.
If the car runs OK and check engine light is not on, I would forget about it.
