quickco replied to luke.typer.king's topic in Honda Type 'R' and VTECIt may have been caused by the timing belt tensioner being too lose. Check it out on the belt side, lower down from the cam pulleys there should be a rubber protector that you can pull off from the black plastic cover. Once pulled off, it should reveal the tensioner bolt. I havent worked on a Honda for a good few years now so trying to go off what i can remember really. Good luck fixing it though. I used to hate the EP civics but they certainly have grown on me.
