The emission light came on because when you had the gas cap open the "EVAP system ran its test and thought it detected a leak in the system.The light will clear itself after it doesn't se the same problem after a set amount of drive cycles. make sure you keep your fuel cap on tight to prevent this in the future.

Honda civic low rpm


changing the exhaust system can alter the gas flow and may create problems for the sensors . The HO2s sensor and the O2 sensor may now be operation on the edge of the parameter settings and any exhaust coating on the sensors may be affecting their performance. Run fault codes to check the sensors and sometimes removing them and cleaning them in vinegar to remove the coating will improve the situation. What ever is the problem if it started after the manifold change then that is the area in which to seek answers.

The m.i.l. will come on for lots of reasons but in my exp. if the car is running fine and you have oil pressure and its not over-heating that you wont damage the car by driving home.

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.

Make sure your distruibutor rotor in turning while cranking engine, if it is timing belt ok, more then likely your not getting spark to spark plugs check your ignition coil, but more then likely it's going to be your ignition module.

Engine Light Stays On


If there is an advanced auto or an autozone near you, take it there, they don't charge to hook up a code scanner. Takes about a minute, a repair shop will charge almost $100.00.
