I am assuming that you only had a gauge on the low side. When you unplugged the jumper, the pressure from the high pressure side was able to flow back over to the low side. This caused your pressure spike. Were either of the lines cold between the compressor or firewall? What were the pressures at when it was running? These would be clues that could help ...


I would have assumed that this was an overdrive unit engaging and disengaging, but I found a 1998 Civic manual online, and it confirms the above answer: "Your Honda's transmission has four forward speeds, and is electronically controlled for smoother shifting.
