Default 97 Civic Hesitating and bogging

I have a 97 Civic EX coupe 1.6 5 speed. It recently started hesitating at low rpm's usually in 1st and 2nd gear but only after the engine is warmed up. Its not giving any codes. I changed the fuel filter and spark plugs with no change. I see this similar problem on the web all the time but no one has a for sure fix. Please , someone has to know....HELP

Default Re: 97 Civic Hesitating and bogging

I'd say try seafoam. It's like 5-15 depend where you live in NA.

I'd reccomend putting 1/3 in your gas tank and 1/3 in your engine. Put it in through your brake booster line. It's the big black dome looking thing on the driver side of the firewall. Take the little black tube off and then with the engine running pour 1/3 of the bottle slowly into the tube while the engine is running. The idle will do weird stuff while you're doing this. Once you're done shut the car off, put the hose back on and wait 10-20 minutes. Start the car and rev the engine.....smoke will pour out of your exhaust. You'll have 1/3 left over so you can always put more in either you gas/engine later. I hope that helps.
