1986 Honda CRX Si from North America - Comments

The biggest mistake Honda ever made was stopping production of the CRX. I have a 1988 with 200000 miles and I still get 50 mpg at a speed of 60 mph. To me I see no reason for a hybrid. Once a hybrid goes over 30-35 mph, the electric motor shuts off. At this point the Hybrid is pulling dead weight.

That's all well and good if you could drive at 60 everywhere.

I just bought a '86' CRX. It has a Vtec emblem on the back. I figured this is a mod for humor.

It has around 260k and a well rusted rear end. I spent $500 on it and it requires a lot of work. The idea was to save on gas money and I'm afraid I'll end up putting more into the CRX to get it Nice than I would save on Gas using it. $$New Muffler, $$Redo Break Line, $$suspension.

Currently the rear sway bar is a tie down. I thought this was funny, but after inspecting it, I think it's actually really good work. I'd like to get rid of it and put in a stock sway bar, but I have yet to find one. I'm pretty newb at mechanics. Hopefully I will be able to save and get it rolling again. I drive a 60 mile commute 5 days a week. I'll have to do the math.

1987 Honda Civic Si -- The problem I have is the PGM Fi light comes on after about 20 minutes of driving. I took the car to a dealer and they tested the computer and no fault codes came up. They cleaned the throttle body and and tested the fuel injection system. It still comes on. This all happened after the engine got wet. They think it is the computer. Can it be reset? If not, where can I find a new one or a guaranteed used one?

Thanks, Rod.

Which gauges should I use for the valve adjustment? I don't see it in the manual.. I have the same exact year model.. and it's fuel injected... Thanks!
