OT, help with Honda hesitation problems


Guest Anonymous

my '92 Civic ex(automatic) has recently developed severe hesitation/stumbling problems from idle up to 3K RPM. It also likes to stall at stoplights. I've changed 02 sensor, MAP sensor, plugs, wires, cap, rotor. My next thought is the Throttle Position Sensor. Has anyone ever had a problem like this?

I saw that car at the junkyard! (though I didn't see any non-wrecked Hondas (or BMW's for that matter (what, you got a problem with nested parentheticals?!)))

the ignition switches in those vehicles are failing in droves. It's not uncommon for one to experience the symptoms you describe as the switch deteriorates. Try turning the key forward slightly (not so far as to engage the starter) as the problem occurs and see what happens.

First thought is a vacuum leaks of some kind, but those early Hondas have HUGE problems with the coil packs in the distributor. Usually they just go completely out and the car won't run (won't start), but I thought I'd mention it just in case they fail differently.

    BMW Neue Klasse - a birth of a Sports Sedan

    Unveiling of the Neue Klasse Unveiled in 1961, BMW 1500 sedan was a revolutionary concept at the outset of the '60s. No tail fins or chrome fountains. Instead, what you got was understated and elegant, in a modern sense, exciting to drive as nearly any sports car, and yet still comfortable for four.   The elegant little sedan was an instant sensation. In the 1500, BMW not only found the long-term solution to its dire business straits but, more importantly, created an entirely new

    History of the BMW 2002 and the 02 Series

    In 1966, BMW was practically unknown in the US unless you were a touring motorcycle enthusiast or had seen an Isetta given away on a quiz show.  BMW’s sales in the US that year were just 1253 cars.  Then BMW 1600-2 came to America’s shores, tripling US sales to 4564 the following year, boosted by favorable articles in the Buff Books. Car and Driver called it “the best $2500 sedan anywhere.”  Road & Track’s road test was equally enthusiastic.  Then, BMW took a cue from American manufacturers,

    The BMW 2002 Production Run

    BMW 02 series are like the original Volkswagen Beetles in one way (besides both being German classic cars)—throughout their long production, they all essentially look alike—at least to the uninitiated:  small, boxy, rear-wheel drive, two-door sedan.  Aficionados know better.   Not only were there three other body styles—none, unfortunately, exported to the US—but there were some significant visual and mechanical changes over their eleven-year production run.   I’ve extracted t
