Question about 2002 Honda Civic
Ok good question
is car and Automatic or manual shift. my wild guess is A/T tranny
my wild guess 2 is, the transmission is slipping
you see RPM rise real fast and MPH dont.
this is called slipping and will burn up the tranny if kept up.
did i guess right.
the A/T has over 200 parts and the tests are long.
and repairs, can be huge labor.
The FSM covers all this.
take car to any ASE (USA) cert . mechanic. (see patch on sleeve)
and he will drive it and tell you, in 5min whats bad
engine, or A./T
that is first. i

I assume you mean low idle speed 500 rpm. Genarally a tapping noise comes from the valve train, and a knocking noise comes from the crankshaft connecting rods. The way that a mechanic will narrow it down is to use a mechanics stethoscope. You can get one pretty cheaply at an auto parts store. Put the metal end of the scope on a part of the engine and listen for noise. On the other hand, if your car is idling at 5000 rpm, it would also be making ALOT of noise.

without more info it depends, year of car, mileage, type of gas. try cleaning your fuel injection, could need a new cap and rotor, try octane boost, or it could be time for a tune up (new plugs and/or wires). need more info

Recommend you have the car scanned to pull the trouble code history. You'll want to know what the car thought was wrong to see if you can avoid same problem in the future. Many parts stores have a free scanning service (Autozone, Advance, etc.)

Sounds like an overheating problem or lubrication problem. If after it dies you can let it sit for a period to cool down it is most likely a cooling issue. Try removing the Thermostat and see if that seems to help. The thermostat may not be the problem as it could be the water pump not circulating radiator fluid. The reason it takes longer with AC off than with it on is because the strain on the motor is greater with the AC in the On position. Since you didn't mention an overheating issue it is probably a combination of a bad sensor and either faulty Thermostat or faulty water pump. Your also going to want to do a compression check on all cylinders to see if your running high compression on 2 or more indicating a crack in the cylinder wall or a blown head gasket. Lastly there is the oil pump, if that is not circulating oil correctly you will have a lubrication issue that will give you this symptom. If you haven't done so of late do and oil and filter change using gunk engine cleaner additive. This is added to the oil then the engine is run for 5 minutes, then drained. You have to change the oil filter when you use this as running the vehicle with this in the engine will damage the seals.
