Hello, my civic has a problem, check engine light turns on after 30 mins of travel also my speedometer drops down then after sometime it will be back to normal again, it does'nt seem to have a problem with the engine coz it does not overheat nor get wild, what would be the probable cause?

If the car shuts down after the service engine lights on, possible problem is the igniter on your ignition coil. You have to replace the igniter. I had the same problem before with my esi 93 and honda car shop fixed it by replacing the said part. It is better to have the code scanned first. If it gives you 1 long flash followed by 5 short flashes, definitely it is the igniter.
i've found on hondas when the there is a no start problem when the engine spins over fine. when the plugs wear out the cylinders get washed down with gas and it sounds like it has no compression. if this is what its doing put a little bit of oil in each cylinder not too much though then put new plugs iin it, however if there is no spark at the plugs it's probably the distrubutor
man it's normal that when u turn on the A/C then the idle will drop and but it will turn off cause the A/C load and the other accesories consume higher power than the power from idle so u need to less the load applied on the engine by turning off any auxiliary electronics when u want to use the A/C like xenon lights but if u only turn hte A/C and u have this problem then u need to increase the idle to prevent turning off of the engine
