Question about 1992 Honda Civic

1 Answer

The rpm on my 92 honda civic are to high

Hi, i own a 92 honda civic 1.5L. i recently bought it so never paid attention to the details. i've recently noticed that when i start-up my car in the morning the rpm needle hits 35000 - 20000 rpm. then after a minute or two it drops to 15000 rpm. that is the lowest it goes. also at sertain times the rpm needle swings between 10000 - 25000 rpm at start-up for about three to four times!
now, i know it's not normal because today while drivong on the freeway, whenever i had to hit the brakes and slow down, the needle would start to move up and down. i haven't had a tune-up on the car yet and i can bet that the previous owner had never done it either! will full tune-up help?

92 Honda civic LX hessitation.


Did you have the computer reflashed for the new injectors? If not, you have to do so. I don't know how much bigger than stock your new fuel injectors are but if it's more than just a little bigger, and you don't reprogram the computer, your mixture is going to be way too rich and you'll be stumbling. Have the ECU reprogrammed to properly control the injectors - many modifications don't affect, or are not affected by, the ECU, but injectors aren't on that list. If you did reprogram it, it may be simply because larger injectors aren't as precise when flowing slowly or at small duty cycles. There's also the chance that one or more are leaking slightly although that's not as common.

92 HONDA SPEEDO WORKS ONLY HALF THE TIME


Try tracing the wiring harness to the bundle under the intake. It is attached to a large metal bracket. The wiring has probably worn bare. Wrap the bundle with electrical tape and try to isolate it from the bracket better. I have repaired several intermitten speedos on 92-95 Civics due to this.
