Try adding a ground wire from your tranny to any bolt on the engine bay. make sure the paint is scratched away from the engine bay to insure a good connection

Bring the car to a parts store and have them test the battery and charging system for you, places like auto zone will do this for free, you need to confirm these are good before going any further good luck and please rate -Jeff

Got a 1991 honda civic hatchback dx for a starter car and its automatic, when it wants not all the time,so im driving 30mph and for some reason it like slips than catchs back on gear any ideas?


All Honda Civic Hatchbacks have been raced and thrashed to death by 20 year olds. Not a good starter car as all the other 20 year olds had the same idea.



Check the Transmission fluid level it may be at the operational limit and sucking air. If not, get a newer vehicle and not a Civic :>)

92 Honda Civic DX-hatch back, 1.5L Speedometer is acting like a tach while driving at highway speeds. Sometimes it will zero out and then it will peg. This is while maintaining a constant speed.


I believe that in '91 or '92 Honda switched from an analog (cable-driven) speedometer to a digital (sending unit/electronic head) version. Likely problem is the sending unit attached to the transmission. Try this website for a replacement and an image of the sending unit: http://www.carpartsdiscount.com/auto/parts/92/honda/civic/switches_sensors_and_senders/speedometer_impulse_sender.html?3593=89758

Good luck.

1990 HONDA CIVIC DX ENGINE LIGHT ON


More info needed. Is this a hatch back, sedan, or CRX? Is the odometer mechanical [old style] or digital [LCD numbers] The vehicle speed sensor [located behind the speedometer in the instrument cluster] drives both the speedometer and the odometer [mileage meter]. It sounds like an electric problem in the instrument cluster. Remove the instrument cluster and take it to your local speedometer repair shop. Look in the yellow pages for them. Or simply buy and install a used instrument cluster from a junk yard.
