1997 Honda Civic Hatchback DX Problems

Hey guys, I had a few questions about my d16 stock engine in my civic.. The engine light stays on all the time and when i shift into different gears sometimes if I try and give it a bit more gas than usual it wants to kind of bag out its hard to explain what it really is but im thinking might be something wrong with o2 sensor maybe? The other thing too is that it runs like a dirtbike.. it doesnt seem to smoke or anything im thinking it could be just needing a few new sensors and might help it so it wont stink like im running a piece of ****.. It is my project car so I can't tell you guys anything anymore its -40 degrees here and the car is not running atm its been sitting in the cold for a while now haha. Please if anyone could give me some suggestions that would be great! and btw I know its not blown head gaskets or anything like that. the engine does not burn oil either what so ever.

Best thing you can do is get the codes read with an OBD II reader/scanner. Otherwise you'll just be randomly buying stuff you may or may not need.
