The Sensor thy are talking about is also called the crank position sensor. It is located behind the timing cover at the crank pulley. if you open the timing covers you can check the timing belt at the same time. check the belt for play and missing teeth. if belt is OK replace the sensor. (follow the wire behind the cover to find it.

P01361


Diagnostic Test Code (DTC) P1361 s a "manufacturer-specific" DTC, and for a 2000 Honda Accord, it applies ONLY to the 3.0L V-6 engine (which would have been nice-to-know up front - especially when you are asking for help repairing your engine controls).
DTC P1361 is defined by Honda as "TDC1 Sensor Intermittent Interruption".

(Note: TDC = Top Dead Center. PID= Process IDentifier)
A diagnostic scan tool capable of watching the TDC sensor PIDs (and preferably, graphing them) is REQUIRED to: (A) determine if this is truly an intermittent condition or a "hard fault". (B) verify PID data while testing for intermittent connections in the wiring harness and connectors. (C) verify that the concern is actually fixed after any repairs are made.

What is P1361 Intermittent Interruption In TDC 1 Sensor Circuit honda civic ? how can i fix it ? engine light is showing and the diagnose is this


Check out the Top Dead Center (TDC) sensor, connector 124 (gray and on the distributor) check power and grounds. It's missing signal from the TDC sensor in the distributor and causing a misfire.

The codes states that it's an intermittent loss of sensor signal, definitely sounds like wiring. Check for the obvious visual stuff first, corrosion, any cuts or holes in the wiring insulation and then start using a multimeter to check the voltage drop, continuity and resistance for all the connectors and wiring.

I suspect this may be too technical, but you asked about how to fix the problem and this is the answer.
It may be time to take the car to a qualified mechanic.

1998 Prelude VTEC P1361 code, what's the most likely failure.


Need a clear question and better info. However, based on the little that was posted...

Code P1361 is ignition coil circuit low. You'll have to do some electrical troubleshooting to locate the cause.

Low oil will also can also result in the oil pressure sending unit cutting power to fuel pump relay. This is done to prevent engine damage due to low oil.

My 2001 honda civic reads a code P1362. what does this mean


P1362 = TDC (top dead center) sensor (1) no pulse.

Reset your car's power control module (PCM or ECU) by turning off the key and pulling the clock/backup fuse for 10 seconds then reset. Start the engine and see if the code returns. If not, it was an intermittant fault and the system is okay--but check for dirty or loose wire connector at TDC1/TDC2 sensor. If the code returns, check wiring to the sensor---if the wiring checks out, replace the sensor.

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.
