Re: CEL only comes on when I get on it

Maybe wen u OD on the acceleration while drivin "rough" the sensors on the throttle are not responding, or are worn, like the sensor is tryna keep up wit u...

Or it cud jus be something loose. maybe an exhaust leak...
Did u jump the CEL to get the code to see wat it is??

Re: CEL only comes on when I get on it

jump two wires in the connector that is behind the radio console - drivers foot well.. turn key on ... count the blinky lights ... how hard is that?
One is for the CEL codes, one is for the ABS system.

Re: CEL only comes on when I get on it

a cel on and off could be something clogged, did it ever stay on long enuff for u to check it? could be a loose sensor **** like that, idont think its to serious, if ur dropping in a new motor then yeah h22a "jdm" dont worry about the turbo, make sure u have a good suspension so u dont kill urself

ya I drove my buddys H22 civic on stock suspension I wont lie when I got on it I got a little worried I was going to lose it lol I will be putting on tokico shocks and lowering springs drop it down maybe 1.5 inchs. and with the cel it stays on some times I tried to do the wire in the connector and it shut off the cel and I got a battery light and oil light so maybe my oil pressure is ****ed idk I know that I do have the right amount of oil in it and i have been checking sensors unless there is a hidden secret sensor then im good but one thing that does question me is my exhaust rusted off on the back at the first flange so I just slapped a gsxr 600 muffler on it but later found a huge rust hole in the pipe so maybe its that idk when ever I try to check the cel it goes off its messing with me and pissing me off do you think a it could be the egr?

Re: CEL only comes on when I get on it

egr wouldnt go on or off, thats either bad or its good, i wouldnt be suprised if its ur o2 sensor on ur exhaust? where is the hole? and ur suspension is rly important man, people build monster ludes but if ur suspension cant handle those speeds/torque specs ur screwed, and i bet there is 1 sensor u havent checked haha, KNOCK SENSOR lol

Re: CEL only comes on when I get on it

hahaha nope havent checked knock sensor and I had a 3 inch rust holy going along the back of my exhaust and I forgot I do have a crack in the header too and i dont know if it has anything to do with it but I do have a little valve noise thats why im trying to get a new motor and I will be getting tokico gas shocks when i get back in a few months until then the car is going to just sit there but I do have a H22 im going to be buying so I shouldnt worry about it too much
