Check your timing belt.Take the distributer cap off and see if the rotor turns when you turn the engine over. If it doesn't, your belt is broken. But it may still be turning and just out of time. Use a timing light to see if the timing mark stays in one place or if it jumps around. If it jumps, it has slipped. Did it backfire when it died?

Civic EX 1997 D16Y8 fuel economy problem (waisting fuel)


The most typical thing to go out that will waste fuel is O2 sensors. They can be marginal where they will not throw a code but will not be efficent. You can test the operation with a good scan tool or just buy two new ones. Also buy a can of "Seafoam" and dump it in your tank next fill up

What kind of filter oil for a 1997 Honda civic lx


Why would you go to the internet to ask that?

If you went to WIX Filters --- you could look up
your engine code, that is on your VIN # & find the
correct oil filter

Any auto parts store will look it up for you

When you say" kind"-- be specific

This is a social web site,not a repair shop or parts
supplier

You should have an owners manual to look at

The filter on the car presently, can be crossed
using the internet

Oil filter in civic 97


If you go to a reputable motor factor,
you can only be sold the correct filter for the civic.
As there are soo many variables in engine type, it's almost impossible to tell, oil volume, or which type filter.
However, I will say, be sure that you don't mix semi-synthetic oil, and mineral oil.
Oil changes should be undertaken every 30,000 miles, (unless under extra work load, (in which case, slightly more regularly))

Otherwise, 10/40 or 15/40 grade oil, is perfectly fine.
The trick to not overfilling the oil, is simply just to take your time, clean the dip stick and retry, until you have the correct reading.

Please don't forget to rate:)
