I had this problem on my own 87 lxi. What I found was the water temp sensor was bad, that took are of the light. The surge problem you talk about, if it is surging while driving, fuel related, check the fast idle valve located on the side of the throttle body. There are two srews on the top of it, there is a plug that can come unscrewed, tighten it back up it may take care of it.

Where is the intake air temperature sensor on a 1995 Honda Civic LX with a 4-cylinder engine?

Not sure exactly, but usually it's on the air filter box. However, it could be anywhere from the hole where the air comes from below the filter, to where the intake hose goes to the throttle body. If PGMFI, in the intake next to the PGMFI unit. If multi port FI, follow the air intake tube to the air filter box.

Is 1991 Honda accord better than a 1991 tercel?

Apples and pomegranates. The Accord was, and is, Honda's top-of-the-line car. The Tercel was Toyota's least expensive car. Both come from companies renowned for making good cars, so it comes down to style and features...and the Accord definitely wins over the Tercel. So yes, I'd say a 1991 Accord is better than a 1991 Tercel.
