I have discovered injector off coasting!

Just like I said, if my lock-up solenoid is in full lockup then I can take the foot off the pedal in gear and the injectors will shut off, how fantastic!

This may suck for those of you with partial lock-up, but it should be easy enough to figure out when you're in full lock-up.

You can also tell when your

You can also tell when your ignition is shutting off by tuning to an unused AM frequency on your radio. With the volume turned up, you can hear a light sputtering noise generated by the ignition system that changes with RPM. This noise drops out entirely as you head down a hill in gear with your foot off the accelerator. At least this detection method works on my 02 Honda Odyssey and my 92 Civic.

That kind of doesn't make sense. Why would the ignition shut off unless you're saying that fuel injection shuts off when you have your foot off the gas. Is that what you're saying????

Please explain partial lock up and full lock up. Also what are your rpm when your injectors shut off?

Honda ECU's simply cut the ground to the injectors on 0% throttle decel. The ignition is still firing inside the dry cylinders though.

Honda also uses a fuel cut instead of an ignition cut for the rev limiter.
