I have a problem I hope you can help me with my civic which has 106000 miles on has started to run rough everytime I give it gas I feel a jerking motion kind of like a fuel inj. Is half cloged it does it in every gear but doesn't feel as bad in 5th. Gear when the tach drops to around 2000 any sugestions as to what this might be.

You may have the throttle postion sensor checked out. They normally wear around the idle and just off idle postions since that is were they normally operate at.

I am going thru some what of a similar problem as to where the car putters when going, and it seems to lack power in a 1998 Civic. I am currently looking into it and have found that it could be an ignition problem (ie: cracked cap or bad coil etc.) Look into this if the other suggestion doesn't work.

Good Luck

As of last night I pulled the cap and wires and one of the wires I pulled is covered in a powder almost rusty/white color. In talking to my Dad (22 yr mechanic) he suggested to look for lines in the wire (ie: streaks of that rusty powder) and sure enough there is. Which is cracks and now it is arhing causing the mis-fire. Im not sure if that is all of it or not, but it could be.

I just swapped out the Cap and Wires and my car runs like new. She didn't want to start, but hey its not very warm here either. But I got my civic back so I am happy, do a good tune up and you should be sitting good.
