The check engine light on my Honda Civic comes on anytime I reach 55 mph & the car will drop out of o/d.

Answers from the Automotive Experts

Amanda J. Pierce, MBA David, You may be having an issue with your AB shift solenoid. You also may be able to have your local auto parts store, hook an OBDII tester to verify the code setting your check engine light.

Gail Dunn, Owner at Women's Automotive Connection You need to take your Honda to a shop to determine what code the check engine light is showing. Something like a cam position sensor could cause this issue or it could be an issue with the timing chain. have it diagnosed so you can make an informed decision about when and what to do.

Gelina Aquilina, Service Advisor / Mechanic at Go to a shop that will check & see why that engine light is on. Shop around, lots of places do it for free.

Maryann Croce, Owner at Croce’s Transmission Specialists David, On your Honda Civic. Getting a professional diagnosis will give you the facts. A road test and scanning for codes are the first steps. Further diagnosis may be needed. Even if the check engine light is off, codes may be stored in the computer memory. Good Luck.
