Question about 2002 Honda Civic

3 Answers

My car stalls, loses power when the engine light comes on.Possible causes- 1-Tdc1 signal circuit is open or shorted to ground. 2-signal circut is shorted to VREF or system power. 3-pickup assembly or its pulse rotor is damaged. 4-tdc1 is damaged or has failed 5- pcm has failed. setting conditions- Engine running and the pcm detedted and unexpected or intermettent interruption of the top dead center 1 sensor signal. this code sets in 1 trip(s). I heard i may be the timming belt since my car miles are over 60,000 or maybe synthetic oil was used during the last time is got my car serviced. although i doubt they used synthetic oil.

Hi, just to be sure, i would suggest you check your timing belt before you purchase this repair. i have prepared a step by step guide that will help you check this vital part. I have also include removal and installation instructions as well.



Check Your Timing Belt Step1 Check your owner's manual for the recommended mileage for replacing your timing belt. Replacement for a Honda Civic is 60,000 miles for 1980 to 1989 models; 90,000 for 1990 to 1996 models and 105,000 for 1997 to 2002 models. Step2 Locate the timing beltMy car stalls, loses power when the engine light - mag-glass_10x10.gif and examine it for breaks, damage, fraying, worn spots or looseness. Step3 Inspect the belt for cracked or missing teeth that may be the result of foreign material collecting between them. Step4 Determine if the timing belt damage is on both sides. Single-side damage may be caused by the timing belt's guide. Remove Your Timing Belt Step1 Disengage the negative battery cable. Step2 Rotate the crankshaft to line up the timing belt matchmarks. Position cylinder No. 1 at "Top Dead Center" (TDC) on the compression stroke. Step3 Access the cylinder head and timing belt covers by moving any components obstructing contact then take off both covers. Step4 Secure the timing belt's adjuster with a bolt from the lower timing belt cover placed on the adjuster's arm. Step5 Relax the nut for the timing belt and balancer shafts tensioner adjuster. Release the tension by pushing the balance belt tensioner away from the timing belt. Step6 Take out the balancer belt. Slip it from the pulleys without creasing or bending it. Avoid oil or coolant contact. Disconnect the crankshaft's balancer belt drive. Step7 Undo the timing belt adjuster's lockbolt and relax the nut. Release the timing belt tension by pushing on the adjuster. Secure the nut. Step8 Unfasten the timing belt as in the previous step. Replace the belt tensioners, if defective. Install Your Timing Belt Step1 Put in the timing belt tensioner lockbolt, the balancer belt pulley, adjuster lever and the adjusting nut and bolt and the tensioner springs. Step2 Secure the tensioner and balancer at their full deflection. Step3 Line up the crankshaft timing pointer with the flywheel and the camshaft pulley so the word "UP" is at the top and the edge marks line up with the head's surfaces. Step4 Place the timing belt over the pulleys and tensioners. Rotate the crankshaft to the left until the cam pulley has traveled three teeth. Line up the timing belt marks and hook up the balancer belt drive sprocket to the crankshaft. Next line up the front and rear balancer pulleys with the oil pump's body. Step5 Mount the balancer belt. Check that all engine alignment marks are accurate. Rotate the crankshaft one complete turn and secure. Release the bolt locking the tensioner. Step6 Insert the bottom timing belt cover. Be sure the rubber seals are in position. Place a new seal surrounding the adjusting nut. Put the key on the crankshaft and install the pulley. Lubricate the bolt threads and secure at 181 foot pounds (250 Nm). Insert the top cover and secure the bolt to 40 foot pounds (55 Nm). Step7 Reconnect the negative battery cable and any other items that you had to disconnect. Start the engine and look for leaks.

    Hi again, here's the thing about the synthetic oil. this type of blend ,if used inside of an engine not prepared for it, can cause damage like you are describing. it can cause the engine to run hot and it can destroy the aluminum heads on this type of motor.

    One more thing, it seems like the CPU is malfunctioning as well. i would get that looked at as well.

0140 0141 and 0039 code


P0140 - 02 Sensor Circuit No Activity Detected (Bank 1 Sensor 2)
The Powertrain control module (PCM) will provide a .45 volt reference voltage to the Oxygen sensor. When the O2 sensor reaches operating temperature, it will generate a voltage that will vary depending on the oxygen content of the exhaust. Lean exhaust generates a low voltage (less than .45V) and rich exhaust generates a high voltage (greater than .45V). O2 sensors on a specific bank marked as "sensor 2" (as this one is) are used to monitor emissions. A Three-Way Catalyst (TWC) system (catalytic converter) is used to control tailpipe emissions. The PCM uses the signal received from Oxygen sensor 2 (#2 indicates aft of catalytic converter, #1 indicates pre-converter) to read efficiency of TWC. Normally this sensor will switch between high and low voltage at a noticeably slower rate than the front sensor. This is normal. If the signal received from rear (#2) O2 sensor indicates that the voltage has "stuck" between .425V to .474 V, the PCM determines this sensor is inactive and this code will set.

Potential Symptoms: Your check engine light(CEL), or malfuction indicator lamp (MIL) will be illuminated. There will not likely be any noticeable drivability problems other than the MIL. The reason is this: The rear or post catalytic converter Oxygen sensor does not affect fuel deliver(this is an exception on Chryslers). It only MONITORS the efficiency of the catalytic converter. For this reason, you will likely not notice any engine trouble.

Causes: The causes for a P0140 code are fairly few. They could be any of the following:
* Shorted heater circuit in O2 sensor. (Usually requires replacement of heater circuit fuse in fuse block also)
* Shorted signal circuit in O2 sensor
* Melting of harness connector or wiring due to contact with exhaust system
* Water intrusion in harness connector or PCM connector
* Bad PCM

Possible Solutions: This is a fairly specific problem and shouldn't be too difficult to diagnose.
First, start engine and warm up. Using a scan tool, watch the Bank 1, sensor 2, o2 sensor voltage. Normally the voltage should switch slowly above and below .45 volts. If it does, the problem is likely intermittent. You'll have to wait for the problem to surface before you can accurately diagnose.

However, if it doesn't switch, or is stuck then perform the following: 2. Shut off vehicle. Visually check the Bank1,2 harness connector for melting or chafing of the harness or the connector. Repair or replace as needed 3. Turn ignition on, but engine off. Disconnect the O2 sensor connector and check for 12Volts at the Heater Circuit supply and for proper ground on the heater circuit ground circuit. a. If 12V heater supply is missing, check the proper fuses for an open in the circuit. If heater circuit fuse is blown, then suspect a bad heater in the o2 sensor causing a blown heater circuit fuse. Replace sensor and fuse and recheck. b. If ground is missing, trace the circuit and clean or repair ground circuit. 4. Next, with connector still unplugged, check for 5 Volts on the reference circuit. If this is missing, check for 5 Volts at the PCM connector. If 5 Volts is present at the PCM connector but not at the o2 sensor harness connector, then there is an open or short in the reference wire supply between the PCM and the o2 sensor connector. However, if there is no 5 Volts present at the PCM connector, the PCM is likely at fault due to internal short. Replace PCM.

** (NOTE: on Chrysler models, a common problem is the 5Volt reference circuit can be shorted out by any sensor on the car that uses a 5 Volt reference. Simply unplug each sensor one at a time until the 5 Volts reappears. The last sensor you unplugged is the shorted sensor. Replacing it should fix the 5 Volt reference short.) 5. If all the voltages and grounds are present, then replace the Bank 1,2 O2 sensor and re-test.


P0141 - O2 Sensor Heater Circuit Malfunction (Bank 1, Sensor 2)
This code means that the heated circuit in the oxygen sensor on bank 1 decreases time needed to enter closed loop. As the O2 heater reaches operating temperature, the oxygen sensor responds by switching according to oxygen content of the exhaust surrounding it. The ECM tracks how long it takes for the oxygen sensor to begin switching. It the ECM determines (based on coolant temp) that too much time elapsed before the oxygen sensor began operating properly, it will set P0141. See also: P0135 (Bank 1, Sensor 1).

Symptoms: You will likely notice poor fuel economy the illumination of the Check Engine Light.

Causes: A code P0141 may mean that one or more of the following has happened:
* open or short to ground in the wiring harness
* O2 heater circuit wiring high resistance
* O2 heater element resistance is high
* Internal short or open in the heater element

Note: Typically a failed catalytic converter does not cause this code. You're more likely to see a P0420 code for a failed converter.
Possible Solutions

* Replace oxygen sensor (cannot repair open or short that occurs internally to sensor)
* Repair short or open or high resistance in wiring harness or harness connectors



P0339 - Crankshaft Position Sensor A Circuit Intermittent
The Crankshaft position sensor also known as the crank position sensor is an electronic device used in an engine to record the rate at which the crankshaft is spinning. This information is used by the Powertrain Control Module (PCM) or Electronic Control Module(ECM) to control ignition and fuel injection. The sensor system consists of a rotating part, typically a disc, as well as a static part, the actual sensor.

When the engine is running, the high and low parts of the teeth cause the gap with the sensor to change. The changing gap causes the magnetic field near the sensor to change. The change in the magnetic field cause the voltage from the sensor to change.

- The crankshaft position sensor (POS) signal sent to the ECM is intermittent
- The proper pulse signal from the crankshaft position sensor (POS) is not sent to Tech notes
- Sometimes and in some models, low battery voltage or a weak starter can can trigger a Crankshaft Position Sensor code.

Symptoms:
- Engine Light ON (or Service Engine Soon Warning Light)
- Lack/Loss of Power
- Engine Stall

Possible causes:
- Harness or connectors (The sensor circuit is open or shorted)
- Crankshaft position sensor may be faulty
- Signal plate may be damage
- Starter motor may be faulty
- Starting system circuit
- Dead (Weak) battery

Possible solution:
- Charge battery
- Repair harness or connector
- Replaced Crankshaft Position Sensor.



I hope this helps to solve it (remember to rate this answer).

ECT sensor signal circuit is open or shorted ground
ECT sensor ground circuit is open between sensor and PCM
ECT sensor signal circuit is shorted to VREF or system power
ECT sensor is damaged or has failed
PCM has failed

Testing will need to be done to find out the cause.
