Engine Performance problem
1998 Honda Civic 4 cyl Front Wheel Drive Automatic 169000 miles
Last weekend we drove over the pass (we meaning husband was driving) and he didn't notice overheating until check engine light came on. Immediately stopped car and got towed home. Inspection revealed cracked radiator. Replaced radiator, hoses, and thermostat, no more overheat. However, check engine light flashes (indicating misfire) but this only happens when engine reaches operating temp. Then we get really low idle (doesn't stall but wants to) and shudder. Cleaned air filter (K&N), while filter was out ran engine with filter bay covered and only misfired because too much air. Could it be dirty air filter? Plugs and wires are fine, as is dizzy cap and rotor. All opinions and help welcome.
have the same problem?
