Hi there. It sounds like your cooling fan and/or electrics associated with it might not be working correctly. Perhaps the reason for the engine light coming on is that your engine temperature is too high as a direct result of the cooling fan not working properly. If after starting the engine you don’t see, or hear the radiator cooling fan working, this is the most likely cause of the engine overheating. You then need to have either a Dealer or Service Center identify why the cooling fan is not working – wiring/connections, fuse, sensor or fan motor. Hope this helps, Scottech.

Check under the passenger side carpet up towards the front with the key in position 2 and count the flashes several times starting every time it pauses. Then either repost the number(s) of flashes or look it up yourself. I have the manual for this car that has the code causes in it . If you can't find it yourself then I will look it up for you.

My car is stalling when slowing down or coming to a stop. I think it is a vacuum line. HOw can I get a a diagram for a 1989 Honda Civic DX Hatchback 1.5 motor


Your emission system (including vacuum lines) should be on a diagram on the bottom of the hood of your car. If not, leave a comment, and I will investigate further.
Hope this helps.

Code error P1361 Honda CIvic LX 2002 -- What it really means? Appear Check engine light intermitent. In my case after Timing belt, water pump, tensor, oil seals and spark replacement. Car lose power and...


P1361 TDC Sensor Intermittent Interruption (I got this from Engine-Light-Help.com)
TDC should mean Top Dead Center.
It is the sensor that tells the computer the #1 cylinder piston is at the very top. And therefore, fires the spark plug.

Since the maintenance done above, I believe the the timing marks for the timing belt is not lined up properly. Being off by one tooth will cause this problem.
