Oil pressure gauge reading


Normal is really any place in the middle of the gauge.
Depending on the age and condition of the engine, and the temp of the oil, oil pressure at idle should be at least 25-35 psi and at cruising speed between 40 and 60 psi.

Even the best kept vehicle can have an EGR problem. Makes no difference what else you do to it to TRY to make it run better, until you replace the Exhaust Gases Recirculation valve, you'll always have the problem. Replace the EGR, no more problem.

1998 Honda Civic relearn idle


Just drive the car as you normally would and the CPU will automaticly relearn your driving habits and be fine. It may stall the first few miles till it learns you want it to continue to drive it. Just avoid heavy traffic areas the first few miles. I hope this helps you out.

sounds like a bad head gasket. Check the oil and look for foam to tell if antifreeze is getting into engine block.

1997 Civic Lx idles rough and low especially with AC on


It's the extra load on your engine when AC compressor kicks on, and it draws engine rpm down. Your fuel injection system has what is called an "idle air control valve", that is supposed to overcome that and adjust idle up & down automatically as needed according to engine load conditions. I'd say it needs replacement, unfortunately it's a little more expensive than most & will run you about $165. Before you do, if you do, make sure all connections & any hoses running to it are in good shape no cracks, on tight & clean, as that can also cause part to malfunction.

Die on idle and die at fully stop in stop sign


I had a similar issue with my 96 civic EX. It was bent valves. Do a leak down test, to confirm it.
