My boyfriend owns a 1989 Honda Civic Hatchback ( manual transmission). It has 209000 miles on it. I know that this is way past its useful life, but the car runs great until recently. When you try to accelerate the engine revs to the point of screaming (the engine not me), even if you shift gears the screaming continues. It took us 2 city blocks just to get up to 20 mph. Can you help me figure out what could be the problem. I understand that it could be many things, but a couple obvious checks would be nice. Thanks
