Well, just a couple of questions to get us on the same page. This Civic, is it a Del Sol S, SI or SI VTEC? Also, the 1.6L engine, is this just the 1.6L or the 1.6L VTEC?
When you say the tach always sits at 2500 - the engine isn't at that speed, just the tach - right?
Does it seem to follow the engine otherwise from that point?
I attached a pic for the location of the tach connector, disconnect it also and see what it does.
The car seems to run fine with both of these conditions?
Last for a reference point, please go to Auto Zone (AZ) or O'Reilly's (OR) and for FREE they can pull the codes to the car. Most important: Once they check your codes, if they find something and you don't get it fixed and need to get back with us, please make sure you tell us exactly what the code was, number and all. Example, if the code was E0568 O2 Sensor bad. Then make sure you give us all of that. While there for FREE also they can bring their tester out and check your battery, alternator and starter.
