The dealer should not simply reset the check engine light without informing you as to the reason it is coming on. The hadheld diagnostic tool should be plugged in to your cars unit and the code deciphered - it could be a simple matter such as the gas pressure valve system in the fuel tank or something more sinister or expensive if you leave it - I am astonished that they simply reset it - go to another dealer and ask them or your local garage as the diagnostic tool is not dealer specific - anyone can buy them.

Temp.gauge really has nothing to do with the perfomance of the engine. If the car has been unused for a few hours, the engine oil etc settles down. It is good idea to let it run after a cold start so the oil circulates in the engine. Keep in mind it's a 1996 model and needs more care. Keep servicing regularly.

Is there 2005 honda civic software update for po128 error code


I think we all just live in a world of automobiles,that have
too much high tech technology,when not so much is needed,
just to keep exhaust emissions at an acceptable level

At least you kept going back to the dealer & not keep driving
as most people do

You gave the dealer techs several chances at resolving the issues,
all be it, expensive, to say the least.

I don't see anything where you went wrong, or they let you down,
assuming your good to go & no more issues

I assume that the head gasket was something that only moved
& leaked internally under certain conditions & I don't know why or
when the ECU came up as a problem,they don't fail often

I have a 98 honda LX civic and my check engine light came on. I took it to my MECHANIC and he cant seem to tell me what the miss fire is. he keeps turning it off and it keeps coming on! what should I


A misfire can come from several things. If you have any mechanic ability check the following.

1. Are the plugs and wires new?
2. Does it smoke?
3. Can you smell gas?

While its missing do the following.

1. 1 by 1 grab each fuel injector. A noticeable tick should be felt.

When it gets dark fire it up and pop the hood. Disable the hood light and look for sparks. This could indicate a bad spark plug wire.

Chances are its only one cylinder missing. But in the event i am wrong, Check the coil. Some models have a single coil and others have multiple.

Maintenance light comes on when engine starts


Usually that light stays on when you are over due for oil service, but since you state its only staying on for a short period, it might be close for the counter to reach zero miles. What I can suggest is to try and reset the counter for your maintenance light. here is hondas most typical way to resest...." insert key in ignition switch, turn key on to "run" position, do not start the car. with out taking key out return key back to "OFF", now press and hold the odometer trip reset button. while holding button turn the key back ON. Keep holding until you see the light blink/flash or on some models in the odometer window you will see the actual counter reset.

sounds like a fuel filter or more likely a fuel pump fault.low fuel transfer pressure,possibly a dealer would be cheaper than a diy repair unless you have the diagnosis correct.
