Question about 2004 Kia Optima

1 Answer

93 Honda Civic EX -- engine light on..possible MAP sensor.

I have had this on-going issue with my civic. it started out over a year ago the car would buck hard when going over 3000 RPM. i would shift into next gear to avoid this and it was fine. it did it in every gear. the engine light is still on and car still bucks over 3K rpm. MAP sensor is $400+ i would hate to change it and find out that wasn't the issue. oxygen sensor would show as problem if MAP sensor is failing. I have been putting premium gas in the car to avoid this tin-like sound coming from engine which i was told is burning too rich or has a timing issue. idk if this is at all related... i can't find the terminal for diagnostic to jump wires.. it's not where the manual says it is... aaaaaaaargh!!

any ideas??

    i don't have any codes yet. i can't seem to find the terminal to get the diagnostic codes... car is 93 and i can't take it to an auto zone for free code reading because car is too old.

I dont think it is the MAP sensor.Your problem is the mass air flow meter.Change that.Thats all to do with the air to fuel mixture.

The map sensor measures engine vac. Can you tee the line on the sensor into a vac hose instead of mounting it ?

Why wont my 93 honda civic ex start and run and come out of park


You have to have power to the brake switch and the key switch to release the park solenoid.
There is an 80amp fuse and a 50amp fuse that powers the key switch.
Have you checked them to see if they have power ?

What other engine will fit a 97 civic ex?


The 96-98 Civic EX came with an OBD2A D16Y8 engine. That is the only engine that will go in as a direct replacement with your current engine ECU. It's an SOHC VTEC engine that has two extra connections not found on the other 96-98 Civic engines - a VTEC solenoid and a special oil sensor used to determine if VTEC engagement is possible. If you swap in an older Civic engine (92-95 generation) you'll have to convert the car to OBD1 (requires a special adapter hardness) and run the ECU that goes with whatever engine you use. This will break functionality of your OBD2 diagnostics port, and depending on which state you live in will cause you to fail emissions checks. If you install a D16Y8 engine from a 99-00 Civic EX, you will have to swap the intake and exhaust manifolds from your old engine to the new engine, and you will be able to continue to run your existing OBD2A wiring and ECU. The 99-00 Civic EX engines have additional sensors, since those engines are OBD2B. The easiest fix would be to find a SOHC VTEC D16Y8 from a 96-98 Civic EX, as it would be a direct plug and play replacement.

How to replace oxygen sensor on a 2001 Honda Civic


before you do anything, let the engine and exhaust line cool down first. disconnet the electrical connector to the sensor, spray some lubricating fluid like " WD 40 " to the thread of the sensor, allow for a few minute then use the right spanner to turn the sensor. here you go, the sensor is now removed. Installing a new sensor is just the reverse. Enjoy it.

Some of the grime, etc on the engine prior to steam cleaning along with any solvents used may have affected the drive/fan belt. I would suggest you either check tightness of the belt and possibly consider replacing it.
