I have been having considerable trouble with my 1994, Honda Civic LSi 1493 engine, for a while now. It was idling erratically, so we changed the idle control valve and it cured that problem. Now it has become completely undriveable, stalls at every given opportunity and I have to rev the hell out of it to get it to go anywhere, and even when it does go it hesitates on acceleration, basically it doesn't want to know!
It went on for an emissions test, the cat showed up to be blocked, and that has since been replaced, it has had the fuel pressures checked, compression tests done all showed up as everything being fine, new spark plugs and a new distributor cap, it has even had the ECU sent away as a further test showed up it was over fuelling itself. The ECU came back showing no faults at all. We are now thinking about the timing belt? I am at my wits end trying to figure out what the problem is, I have been a month without being able to drive it and I am due back at work in a couple of weeks and need my little car to get me there! Any help would be greatly appreciated!
have the same problem?
