While going for a slight thrash the other day, the check engine light appeared on the dash. Owner's manual says this means a malfunction with the emision control system.
Car has a glitch around 4000rpm, and when getting on throttle after going round a corner. Also, engine dies 4-5 times moments after starting, when the engine is warm. Cold starts (15deg weather here in NZ) is fine. Car is booked for Honda dealership next week. But I wanna know if anyone has had similar probs.
Could it be spark plugs (3000km old)
Oxygen sensor?
Major?

THANKS!!!!

Codes? What codes?

As it said below my name, I'm a brand spankin newbie, havn't done any work to my car. Its a stock Civic GTI. I don't know what you mean by codes?? IS that the programming of the ECU?
Thanks for your advice guys, sounds like it isn't anything too major.
Its booked to go into the Honda Dealership next week. I'm just trying to figure it out before it goes in. Im worried cuz my baby's sick.
