Well first I would like to say hello and it seems like this is a cool site and a lot of good information, I don't know much about Honda's as I am long time Mustang guy but I enjoy any well built car and not brand specific. Anyway onto my dilemma. I have a 94 civic with the 1.5 non-vtec automatic. I was driving down the interstate today and felt it lose power a little and then saw a ton of smoke pour out of the exhaust and then it was missing out bad, I knew it wasnt good. I changed the plugs immediately hoping I would get lucky but nope, still didnt fix it. Then I let it run and checked to see if there was a dead cylinder and sure enough one plug wire had no spark. So Im thinking its either a burnt valve or a burnt piston. My questions is what do you guys think I should do in this situation? Money is an issue, but I would like to fix it the cheapest way possible but to where it will run perfect. Is there any engine swaps that are a direct bolt in instead of the slow 1.5 that is there? I dont want to change the ecm, harness or anything like that. Thanks guys I really appreciate you helping this newb out!
