Is This A Car That I Should Try To Keep?
I've got a '98 Civic-LX with 86K miles on it. It's been in storage for over 10 years. At 80K miles, the entire transmission had to be replaced. Around the same time, the "Check Engine" light keeps going on & off. I simply "GAVE-UP ON IT". Do you think that it's worth getting it "road-ready" or time to trade in an obvious "LEMON"? As far as kbb.com is concerned, this car is in excellent condition.
Replace your O2 sensors and drive it for years to come
or have the car scanned for the code or codes as to why the light is on instead of just guessing. Any local auto parts store will usually do it for free. Post the 4 digit code back here and we can help you. If you like the car, it sounds like a cheap and easy fix so you can keep it for years to come.
I did just that & the code made reference to a very small, hard-to-reach device that increases my idle when I'm at a light with the a/c on. I'm sorry but I've forgotten the name.-Kurt.
