    I just bought a 91 civic dx with b18a1 obd0 when i shift the car into reverse the check engine light comes on and it idles really high. When i shift out of reverse it still idles high. If i shut off the car and restart the idle drops and the engine light is off

    someone wired up the reverse light switch to where there should be a different sensor. not sure which one, but that's the only thing i can think of that would cause that sort of thing. look at the connector for the reverse switch, see what it's plugged into, then look for another sensor that looks rigged up (they will likely have cut off the wiring on both plugs and rigged them together.)
