PostSubject: I need some Honda help!   April 19th 2012, 4:35 pm

Hey ya'll,

Since my wife drives the TransForester as her daily, I'd like to get my own DD that will get good mileage and be something fun to tinker with & try new things on.

I'm looking into a 94 civic hatch (VX) that's been motor swapped (D16 SOHC Vtec). To my knowledge it has the original wiring harness (extra plugs everywhere!) and has not been tuned at all.

It's got lots of little odds and ends that need attention, but it's pretty straight. I drove one of these in high school and I've been dying to get back into one.

The only hang up is, when coasting in gear, clutch out, and the RPM's drop low (like you're coasting to a stop in second) the car starts to chug and shake pretty violently. But this happens in any gear at any speed when the RPM's drop down to what should be idle range. It's almost like when you let the clutch out too soon without enough gas. Just barely hitting the throttle clears up the issue. So while it might be great heal-toe practice, it would annoy the crap out of me as a DD.

Anybody know if this could be something simple like a sensor or timing issue, bad clutch maybe? Or something more serious?

Could anybody tell what's wrong by my description or maybe a short test drive? Even if I had some idea of where to start I'd feel a lot better about buying "as is"

I know jack squat about Honda's, but this could be my starting point if I can get it reliable, and start saving for more parts.

Thanks in advance

if its doing it when the rpms are under idle then it would be normal for it to do that on any vehicle. if thats not the case. could be vacuum lines. but dyno76 would be the guy to ask.

Hey Adam. PM me if you're going to be out saturday night. I'll be running around in the B20vtec fiat tuning the s300. Be best to look at it in person to see whats going on. Let me know if you're down with that.
