I got this 1995 Honda Civic (D16Z6; 1.6L SOHC) with about 110,000 miles on it. Got a great deal, but not too long after the engine blew. I replaced the motor by myself (new motor has approx. 50K miles on it), but after firing it up it pulsated. I waited a while and after the engine warmed up the pulsating went away. It would come back when the engine would idle a bit higher so I lowered the engines idling rpm a little bit. This has only solved the problem when the engine is warm and at idle. While accelerating at around 900-1200 rpms in first gear the engine will pulsate unless I give it more gas and push it above 1200 rpms.
The point is, my engine pulsates when cold (cuz its usually running at higher rpms until warm), and between 900-1200 rpms when warm.
A friend told me it could be the temperature sensor. Another friend told me it could be the speed sensor (damaged a little bit during the engine swap), but my odometer and speedometer function properly. So, I'm not sure.
have the same problem?
