    Default Honda Civic 2003 Accerleration Problem

    AoA All

    For the past few months, my Civic is giving me this problem that both on petrol/CNG, it doesn't accelerate properly even after applying full pedal. The situation is worst in CNG as I get it tuned from a mechanic but after driving 40-50 kms, it starts missing specially in low gears and eventually dies down and wont start again. I then convert it to the petrol and though it doesn't die down as in the case of CNG, it consumes much more RPM just to get to 100kph.

    I have done many things. Tuned the kit, throttle body, tappets etc, also checked the ignition coils but the problem just wont go away. I should mention here that the problem is persisting for the past 2 months. Before that it used to be a charm on both CNG/Petrol and specially CNG.


    Is there anyone out there who could help me with this? Any guess? Is there a problem with any of the sensors? Any help will be highly appreciated

    P.S. I tried to search the forum before creating this thread but could not get the satisfying answer.

    No. I recently replaced ignition coils though.

    Is it possible that any sensor is not working properly?

    Your car's timing sensor(don't know the fancy name for it but the local mechanics call it timing sensor) stops working when hot. If possible, get the car OBD scanned right when it stops working. It will give you the code and you can be sure.

    Otherwise, just change the timing sensor..should cost between 1800-2200 from bilal gunj.

    Dear Bango

    Thanks a lot mate.

    Just got it checked & scanned from a diagnostic workshop here. They said that the cam (camshaft) sensor is not working properly. Now before going to buy it, I wanted to know how much should the genuine piece cost? And if its too costly(in excess of 10K) is it a good idea to buy a Kabuli?


    Secondly, excuse my lack of knowledge but are these two the same thing i.e. camshaft sensor and the timing sensor?

    Yes, that is the timing sensor.

    It should cost you around 1800-2200 from bilal gunj. No point in buying a new one.
