I was stuck in traffic when my civic stalled, I managed to
splutteringly start it but found it would stall straight away unless I
kept it in extremely high rev’s. I managed to get it into a side road.
Tried to start the car again sounded a lot like the engine kept being
Waited an hour for the auto club guy who came along and started the
car first time without splutterly. We then let it run for 10 minutes
and it did not stall. I then took it round the block and it stalled
half way round.
The auto club guy managed to get it started by rev’ing it hard, he
noticed that when he rev’d it the exhaust fumes were dark.
He thought the car was overfuelling the engine. Appently there is a
sensor that monitors the engine temp and once the engine is warmed up
it tells car to lessen the fuel sent to the engine.
Has anyone come across this fault before? Anyone know what the sensor
Any help would be greatly apreciated.
