First check the basics, oil, coolant , belts, hoses, then you may have to plug in an OBD II reader to find the code.

Replaced 1.8 liter engine in a 2006 Civic after it overheated bad. Had to replace two ignition coils and it will idle smooth until it gets warm then starts missing.Loses power and check engine light starts...


misfires are from coils , plugs , HT leads , and injectors and fuel pressure . If the head got that hot then it is possible that the injectors have an internal problem that shows when they get hot and the electronics breaks down.

I have a 97 honda civic lx, and i can"t get it to start.can anyone help me out with what to do??


3 things make an engine start : compression wich is lost slowly and seems not the case here , fuel : take off the air filter and tube leading to the intake manifold , insert 2 table spoons of fuel and with nobody face near it start the engine , if it start and died , the problem his fuel pump , fuel pump fuse , injectors or the computer circuit and finaly spark , test the sparkplugs and coils .

I have a 96 honda civic 1.6 liter. when i acclerate my car sputters and dies when i reach around 20 mph. it runs perfeclty when i dont acclerate and now it haves trouble starting. i recently bought new...


It could be several things. Start with the most simplest things like replacing the fuel filter, air filter and running a fuel system cleaner through the engine. A clogged catalytic converter can also be a reason for poor accelleration. Are there any trouble lights on the dash like the engine light or check engine light? Have your charging system checked as well just to make sure everything is up to par. This can be done for free at nearly any autoparts store like Advanced Autoparts or Auto Zone. Other possibilities could include water or other foreign substances in the fuel tank/system, a failing fuel pump and clogged injectors if the engine is fuel injected. Hope this helps.

Yes, low voltage to the dash will cause them to do strange things. After you replace the battery, it will stop. You may have a check engine light on also. It was from the low voltage. It will go off after time, or you can take it to a shop and have it cleared.
