    :)

    i recently got myself a used civic (85 950km's on the odo) V.I.N number indicates it was put together in the land of the rising sun (jhmek3.....followed by a whole lot of numbers.....) IT HAS THE D15Z7 3 STAGE VTEC ENGINE (it has two vtec solenoids), so far so good...the acceleration on this thing is ferocious,which tells me the vtec is working fine :D (at least the third stage)..however since i bought the car ive never seen the econo light come on whilst driving,it only lights up breifly wen i turn the key to the "on" position,,even more more perculiar is that my ABS,OIL,& ENGINE CHECK, NEVER EVER LIGHT UP, :( even with the key on the 'on' position,,,the other day i tried to to test my ABS brakes by applying full braking pressure from 50kph ,the outer front wheel locked before the others,is it supposed to do that help!!!!!!!!!!!!! :(

    also what are the recommended spark plugs for the D15Z7?????, :huh: i recently filled it up with castrol formula rs racing synthetic.

    d15z7 in a 1985? never happened.
    abs in 1985? wtf? didn't exist.

    you have yourself a swapped car, and why the lights don't work, is probably a result of the swap. no one here can guess at something like that over the net.

    Sounds like they swapped gauge clusters on you too, there IS NO abs.. And I can't see anyone doing an ABS swap on an 85... Yeah yeah, some bastard somewhere did it, and I'll get called on that statement..

    Anyway, are you sure its not a 95 or something? typo maybe?

    yeah i kinda thought that too at first, but after rereading his first post, it was obviously 85,950 miles, not an 85 civic with 950 miles. Or kilometers. :)

    Kennedy, eh? He died on November 22nd 1963. As far as your car, take it to a dealer.
