Engine Mechanical problem
2000 Honda Civic 4 cyl Two Wheel Drive Manual 138000 miles
I have just finished rebuilding my engine and replacing the head with one from a 96 EX with vtec. This is often referred to as a "mini-me" swap. I had to rewire the plug to the IACV, 3wire to 2wire conversion in the engine compartment and also moved pin B6 to B23 and removed pin B15. The ECU is throwing an error code 14 (IACV) and the engine will not start unless I put my foot on the gas. It runs OK at 2000 rpms, but below that it lopes like a V8. The head just had a valve job and I rebuilt the bottom end at the same time, it also has been cammed but this cam works fine from 900-7500 rpms. So the lope issue is not being caused by that. Where can I start troubleshooting this?
have the same problem?
