Question about 2003 Honda Civic

Check Engine light came on in my 03 Civic

I just had the oil changed in my 03 civic at the dealership. The check engine light came on two days later. Does the light need to be reset or could there be other problems? The car has 108,000 miles and I have maintained the car as required by Honda.

    Check your oil level immediately...it may be leaking oil. If not have it checked to make sure the oil pressure sending unit wire has not been knocked loose.

Is there 2005 honda civic software update for po128 error code


I think we all just live in a world of automobiles,that have
too much high tech technology,when not so much is needed,
just to keep exhaust emissions at an acceptable level

At least you kept going back to the dealer & not keep driving
as most people do

You gave the dealer techs several chances at resolving the issues,
all be it, expensive, to say the least.

I don't see anything where you went wrong, or they let you down,
assuming your good to go & no more issues

I assume that the head gasket was something that only moved
& leaked internally under certain conditions & I don't know why or
when the ECU came up as a problem,they don't fail often

Check engine light means emissions control system failure.
I would only rely on Honda to properly diagnose this and
replace component failure with Honda part. The ck engine
light was probably reset when your mechanic replaced the
crankshaft sensor, and in time, came back on cause the
problem has not been corrected.

Check engine light on just after 100K


a check engine light has nothing to do with oil, it is a warning that some part of the engine or emission control system electronic control systems has developed a fault, have the system tested to determine what that fault is, there will be a fault code stored in the powertrain control modules memory

1999 Honda Civic EX fault codes 1366 and 1399


This code is not documented so the code reader is giving a false reading.
If the car runs OK and check engine light is not on, I would forget about it.
