Got Rid of the 4th and Got a 5th!

Alright I've had 2 4th gens and I must say they I will buy another one down the road, but I was looking for something a wee bit larger and more leg room. Sooooo I picked up a 97 base nordic mist leather blah blah. The its an auto and I really need a highway car so a 5 speed just wasnt doing it for me with the high rpms. The trans is great. I've flushed it twice with new Honda ATF and and there were barely any shaving when i pulled the plug. It doesnt shift funny, make noises or anything. I havent beat on it and everything seems quite smooth. I got a smoking deal on it so i grabbed it. Mainly because of the leather and I hate cloth. Now it has projector halos that I want to get OEM ones for, and a fiberglass hood. Other than that no other modifications.

Now for the questions..

I have a check engine light. I read the codes and I got MAP sensor and Knock sensor. I bought a new MAP sensor and that took care of that code, but still keep getting a knock sensor code. NOW the car engine has a mind of its own. Sometimes it will run great no hesitations, bogging or anything. But it seems the hotter outside it is, the worse it runs. Would a faulty knock sensor cause this? Its the only code I get and there is only a slight hesitation. Someone who didnt know cars wouldnt really notice it. But the power it horrible below 3500 rpm. It seems like the further you push the throttle the less it wants to go until you get to about 3500. So if anyone can guide me in the right direction that would be great. I was thinking the TPS was bad and was throwing the knock code, but I dont know 5th gens well. I miss my 4th, but im a big guy and i need room........oh yeah and a h22 lol.

Things I like better than the 4th

The windows switches arent on the side they lay flat
The E brake location
sunroof ofcourse
It feels good on the highway

Things I miss about the 4th

Much tighter suspension feel
Better handling
Oh c'mon the mean front end it beautiful
EL guages
Lumbar
Dash

Now the car is really growing on me. It feels more practical and i feel more respected. Its got 122k on it and im going to do the timing belt and some routing maintenance in a week or 2 to get it ready for college. Shes got a bit of rust because im in the rust belt, but runs fine other that this slight heistation bog issue. Sorry 4th genners, Im looking for a very low mileage VTEC lude 95 to store for life. But Its time to try something new. I will get some pics up soon. Im moving now so no time.


Thanks again!

Re: Got Rid of the 4th and Got a 5th!

I have owned three ludes. A 93 si with h23 and a 92 si with a swapped h22. Loved them both but my 00 fifth gen is my favorite. I also have a auto and I must say I love it. All my five speeds were fun but the auto is more if a joy to drive especially in town. I get to enjoy the car more. Maybe we r the lucky ones and will not have the auto troubles others claim.
