1998 Honda Civic DX
1.6l SOHC (non Vtec)
5 Speed Manual
Okay so last summer I raced my Civic to see what I could pull before some mods. Well about 2-3 weeks after this the car started to knock lightly, it got worse over some time, never seemed to be a bad knock like a rod or anything. Well a few weeks after that, she started to putter some times. When I would get higher in the RPM's it would stop. Now one day on my way to work she gave in, the car started puttering and the check engine light started flashing really fast. Okay so I called a shop today since she has been parked a while and he had said it sounds that it is all a miss fire due to an ignition problem (ie: cracked cap etc...) Now what all should I look for? Does this sound right? Could it be a bad coil? Would a MSD blaster coil, cap and wire upgrade work good for this car? I am just not sure what to look for? Also I have the OBDII tester however it doesn't connect because there is a problem somewhere with the connection. Can you help with what is wrong and what to do? Thanks
This is my Civic, you can see why I miss driving her :(
have the same problem?
