I have a 2002 ep3 civic, a while back the gearbox went so we got a used one off the dealer I originally got the car from. A friend installed if for me and ever since then the car ran in limp mode, after 5 months the limp mode stopped and recently came back on, however this time limp mode only comes back on after I hit a bump, the D symbol will flash and the engine light comes on at which point limp mode will be engaged.
Could you advise me on this as no mechanic near me can figure out the issue. I should also point out since the new gearbox the P-R-N-D-D2-D1 sequence doesnt line up on the gear stick and the dials. There is also a slight burning smell under the hood, this may just be common with this car and not an issue.
Im desprate to get to the bottom of this as I need the car for work and im waiting for the day it goes too far and dies altogether.
have the same problem?
