P1361 Intermittent Interruption In TDC 1 Sensor Circuit
Posted on Apr 03, 2009
Backfires usually mean it's still out of time, either engine wise, spark wise, or injector wise. I'd pull the cap and inspect the ignition coil if it's that style. Hondas are the easiest cars to get spark plug wires mixed up, even the pros do it every so often. I'd also make sure all your injector connectors aren't swapped around, & definitely check all of your engine grounds. you could also have a bad timing belt tensioner or just be a few teeth off. I always triple check the simple stuff over and over again cuz thats what it usually ends up being... hope this info helps...(subytech1)...

Check out the Top Dead Center (TDC) sensor, connector 124 (gray and on the distributor) check power and grounds. It's missing signal from the TDC sensor in the distributor and causing a misfire.
The codes states that it's an intermittent loss of sensor signal, definitely sounds like wiring. Check for the obvious visual stuff first, corrosion, any cuts or holes in the wiring insulation and then start using a multimeter to check the voltage drop, continuity and resistance for all the connectors and wiring.
I suspect this may be too technical, but you asked about how to fix the problem and this is the answer.
It may be time to take the car to a qualified mechanic.

Code P1361 = Intermittent Interruption In TDC 1 Sensor Circuit
Turns out Top Dead Center (TDC) sensor was bad. Yours is too.
This sensor in located behind the timing chain cover on my 2001 civic. You have to take the cover off to get to it. Honda dealer wanted $360 in labor to change the sensor. Because it was in the same the location Honda would have changed my timing chain for no extra labor charge. So I went to the Honda dealer and got the sensor ($56) and went to the auto parts store and got a timing chain, water pump, and new belts. Local mechanic changed all these parts for $160 in labor (others wanted $230). $130 for the sensor and timing chain and $30 more for the pump. I probably could have hacked that timing chain cover off myself but that is what thought would happen. A hack job. And it was time for a new chain anyway. 92 plus degrees outside and the civic is running fine.
Good luck (remember rated this post).

You have a fuel presure sensor or vacuum problem.
Check Gas cap as well.
You will need a multimeter for some tests.
