Question about 1989 Honda Civic
I was driving when camshaft broke in half. I pulled the head and cam. replaced them both and now it will start up but runs real rough. what do I do now?
Did you triple check that your timing was correct and that none of the pistons where damaged since that is an interference engine, meaning that f the timing belt breaks or in your case the cam broke (other half stopped moving), the piston may have ran into the valve causing damage to the valve and possibly the piston.

I had the same problem on a Rover. There was a leak in inlet manifold that was caussing the problem.
To verify, spray some sealant to temporarily seal the inlet manifold .and the eratic idling should disappear for some time.
If it does, you know there is leak in inlet manifold which you can take of and refit with a new gasket.

90000 Miles on the Timing Belt. Do not let this go! A timing belt failure can cause internal engine problems.
Should cost around 200 or so, depending upon your local labor rates.

both are located in the exhaust system. You have to get the car off the ground and follw pipes. You cant miss the O2 sensors.

Remove the left front wheel....(drivers side). Remove all accessory belts. Remove the crankshaft shaft pulley.......remove the plastic lower timing belt cover.....and there it is! It is mounted with one bolt.
The wiring runs down the right side of the timing cover while looking at it from the drivers side of the car.

Testimonial: "I ended up having my mechanic do the work. He did say he had to move all those parts to get to the sensor. "
