Question about 1997 Honda Civic del Sol

1 Answer

Yesterday I noticed, on my 1997 Honda Del Sol, that the CHECK (yellow) lamp came on. I immediately checked my manual and it stated it had to do with my gas cap. The last time I got gas was about two weeks ago and every time after I fill up, I turn the gas cap about six or seven times so it's good and tight. I had to do it again yesterday because it seemed loose. I don't anticipate getting another tank of gas for another two or three days. I called my mechanic and he didn't think it would be a problem but I think it might cause problems with my emission. What advise do you have for me?

The vehicle randomly runs a test on the vehicle to test the emissions, if the cap was loose it will trip the light. if it is tight the next time it runs the test it will turn the light off.

SOURCE: what does it mean when the check light (yellow)

Yes it is a emission problem, But the emmissions are a complete set of sensors, parts and wiring that does need replacement from time to time. Such as O2 sensors, temp sensor, oil pressure sensor, catalitic converter, vacume line, wiring, . you need to get the code from the ECU to get the exact problem diagnosed, Most any oil change shop can do this for free as long as thats where you change your oil, As soon as you get the code you will know the faulty part.

The d16y8 is used in the 1996 to 2000 Civic EX, as well as the 1996 and 1997 Del Sol. Both harnesses and ECUs will work from either.

What engines can fit in a 1997 honda del sol


Assuming you have a 1500. You can fit a d series, D16a1 or D16y8 (120-130bhp), a B16 (150) a B16a (JDM 160), a B18 from a Integra Tpre R (187), a K20 from a RSX, or a H22 from a Prelude. Most engines need a little work and wiring harnesses, but check it out thoroughly online on forums to udnerstand what is involved.

My personal choice would be a B16 or B18, light engines that are bulletproof.

Go for it :)

1996 honda del sol abs light stays on


If the ABS light is on, you have either a failing ABS (wheelspeed) sensor, or a bad ABS control module. You'll need a diagnostic scan to find out which it is. As for the owner's manual, there are a number of online owner's forums that will probably have the manual or at least the same information posted, or you can search eBay for one - they're common finds there.

Try holding the key between II and III in the ignition immediately after you start it. My 95 Del Sol VTEC is at the dealership now for the same issue, it is an ignition switch problem.
