While the engine light can mean a variety of things, it could simply mean you are low on motor oil.

It could also mean that your oxygen sensor is bad. Disconnect the oxygen sensor and see if the ENGINE light goes out. If it does, you have discovered the reason why it went on to begin with. You can run your car without an oxygen sensor hooked up, but my experience has been that you do not get nearly the same milage as you would with it hooked up. It could also mean that your gas cap is not on or not on tight. A gas vapor leak triggers the Check Engine light.

If there is a pinging sound in a 1995 Honda Civic engine, the engine could be out of oil. If the engine was operated with no oil for a period of time, the rings and pistons could have become damaged or broken.

The check engine light indicates a problem in the engine controls or emissions system, have the computer codes read and you will know exactly what your car is trying to tell you.

The check engine light on the Honda Pilot is an indicator that there may be a problem with the engine. This could be minor such as air or water in the gas tank or could be an indicator of something more serious.

Honda engines need special care when it comes to oil changes - it is possible you need an oil change. You could also trying to flush out the old oil and replace it with new.

A blocked fuel filter could cause the engine to lose power on a 92 Honda Civic DX. Fuel injectors that need changing or cleaning could also be the cause.

If a 1992 Honda Civic's speedometer is erratic, the problem could be the speedometer cable. It could also be the speedometer sensor malfunctioning. Check both components carefully.

Terrible engineering that's why it's a Honda

Could be as simple as the fuel filler cap installed incorrectly. Usually a problem in the emission control system - have vehicle scanned to determine the problem
