Hook up to a computor at the dealer for the problem codes. Personal computer can be bought at autozone etc. also if you ask they will hook up to a computer for you. The cost is nominal to purchase one.

I would suggest an ignition module. If it is a rough idle at startup I would check the throttle position sensor. You can check that by starting the car and unplugging the TPS. If the car runs differently then chances are it is working fine.

I have a 1990 honda civic hatchback si with an 89 ZC DOHC black top engine.. the rear motor mount is cracked and each time i down shift the engine raddles.. how do i change out the mount? and if possible.....


You will need something to lift the engine so that you can take the pressure off of the mount. It sounds like your fuel pump may be wearing out and it is not responding like it should...The pump on the gas tank should be located on the top of the tank....Under the back seat....

Have the car checked for the fault codes. I suspect it's your oxygen sensor.

Engine light is still on after we have replaced numerous parts


The engine light is on, Have u checked for fault codes? To check codes, pull back carpet on passenger side of car to expose ECU (electronic control unit) at 'foot' location on that side. There is a small LED display at the top of the unit, turn the key on (not running) and check for flashes, u must count the flashes to determine what codes are stored in the computer. Short flashes are for codes 1-9, two digit codes use long flashes for the 1st #, followed by short for the 2nd. There is a pause between codes, so there may be more than one. Check and let me know what u find.

See what code is throwing the check engine light. To check the code pull back the carpeting floor on the passenger side under the dash and you should see the car's main ECU with a little window and an LED bulb flashing when the car is in the on position. You have to count the amount of flashes it gives off...the way to read is it will give slow flashes first, then fast ones. So for example it may flash once, pause, the fast 3 times...that would then mean it's throwing a code 13. Once you figure out the code and what that code is for then u can go from there. Good luck!

Starting in hot weather


Turns out that Hondas are notorious for having starting problems during the summer (sometimes it also happens when you just run them for a short while). I have a 1990 honda civic lx and was having starting problems and noticed that it was mostly during hot days. I got my starter rebuilt but the problem continued. Also I noticed that my car was flashing CODE 16.
The flashing code, together with the starting problems, points to a problem with the MAIN RELAY.
Turn the ignition on and check for codes, pull the carpet back on the passenger side floor and look for the flashing LED, count the flashes--that'll be the code (there's a short pause inbetween codes).
The Main Relay is located under the dash on the driver side, usually on the left hand side, can be up against the left wall, it's a small black unit with a plug. You need to unscrew it from its mounting bracket first. Change the main relay and it should solve your summertime starting problem.
