    hey guys im new to this, i was wondering if anybody can help me out here. i have a 1992 civic hatchback that has had its engine swap to a d16y7 motor that i can not connect the speed sensor male and female connectors to. is it because its damage or wrong sensor for the car?... im not a tuner or a ricer lol i just got it for a daily and im clueless about car engines. i really enjoy this car and might possibly give it and engine swap when the motor is no longer running. thanks!!! 20170413_141431.jpg 20170413_144007.jpg

    I moved this thread into the correct section since its not a "DIY How to". Please read the section descriptions when in doubt of where to post if you want your questions to receive helpful exposure.

    Buying an engine swapped car while having no automotive knowledge is a risky move, so its in your best interest to get very familiar with researching. In this case you can visit an online OEM parts dealer, such as HondaPartsNow.com, and compare parts numbers for what was originally in your Civic and the D16Y7 engines original vehicle model "'96-'00 Civic LX".

    If the part numbers vary then you need to cut or re-pin & swap the plug harness. It's been done with many swaps so get familiar with our search function and figure out the rest, then post your findings here for confirmation.

    Can I assume that the engine but not the transmission was swapped? If so,...

    Go to a local junk yard.
    Locate 5th generation Civics.
    Remove a VSS connector that matches your transmission.
    Remove your car's current VSS connector.
    Splice wires of replacement connector to your car's VSS wires.
    Enjoy no VSS CEL code and working speedometer.

    Fixed =)

    Ask your friend or post a picture of the transmission code.

    I added a couple other ways to acquire basic information, which can answer most questions.

    This way, tech discussions can be even more interesting! =)

    Thoughts on what you have found?

    For example, did you Google the Honda s40 transmission? Does the finding guide you to the solution to your problem?

    You used Google but did you use good search terms? It's all about search terms.

    Also download the 92-95 and 96-00 Civic manuals. You will need both to understand your "hybrid" car.

    You will also benefit from searching for "e7f p4a".

    Afterwards, you can bask in your own self sufficiency.

    I second that. As you learn more and more about your car you will acquire new research knowledge to better help you to find what you are trying to look for and later accomplish. Good luck! You can do it!
