What other engine will fit a 97 civic ex?


The 96-98 Civic EX came with an OBD2A D16Y8 engine. That is the only engine that will go in as a direct replacement with your current engine ECU. It's an SOHC VTEC engine that has two extra connections not found on the other 96-98 Civic engines - a VTEC solenoid and a special oil sensor used to determine if VTEC engagement is possible. If you swap in an older Civic engine (92-95 generation) you'll have to convert the car to OBD1 (requires a special adapter hardness) and run the ECU that goes with whatever engine you use. This will break functionality of your OBD2 diagnostics port, and depending on which state you live in will cause you to fail emissions checks. If you install a D16Y8 engine from a 99-00 Civic EX, you will have to swap the intake and exhaust manifolds from your old engine to the new engine, and you will be able to continue to run your existing OBD2A wiring and ECU. The 99-00 Civic EX engines have additional sensors, since those engines are OBD2B. The easiest fix would be to find a SOHC VTEC D16Y8 from a 96-98 Civic EX, as it would be a direct plug and play replacement.

Troubleshoot honda 2.0 i-vtec check engine lights


If the car can still be started it could be related to items that needs cheeking up and routine in nature such as tune-ups, change oil etc. Try to remove the negative terminal of the battery to see if you can clear out the errors. If that does not work, you may need a scanner to pick up the error and accurately diagnose the problem.

Vtec wont work


More than likely its your temp sensor on the front of the engine, Ive seen it be the cause of things similar including high idle when car first starts(happened to me when I switched out my 1.5 for 1.6 sohc vtec engine, engine was built as an automatic so i changed out the flywheel etc but no place for the sensor) and happens to be the sensor for my radiator at the same time so it controls the fan.
