    Hey guys,

    I have a '94 LX with the 1.9L, and have a noticeable stutter in idle when I turn on my headlights.

    I'm going to try alternator because I have a spare - are there any other known issues with these cars?

    Make sure that any and all ground wires between the body /engine /battery, are sound and not rusted or corroded. Maybe add a couple more.

    I had that when my tail light/hatch harness was acting up too.
