Question about 1999 Honda Civic

1 Answer

Car will not start

Car would not start, it turned over but would not start. I replaced the battery & spark was working fine for 2 days, and now it will not even turn over. Should I start with the starter or the alternator? Or somewhere else. Thanks!

Car not starting or turning over indicates towards multiple possibilities. It can be issue with battery or weak battery. But if battery checks out ok, then it can be starter issue or faulty alternator or problem with low fuel pressure or no spark at spark plugs due to dirty spark plugs or faulty ignition coil or injectors getting cracked or dirty and needs to be cleaned.

To confirm the problem, the basic troubleshooting is required.

Are you saying the engine will not crank, or not start ?
If you think two of the cylinders are not getting spark, something may have happened to the coil pack or the crank-cam sensors.
If all 4 plug wires are getting spark, two of them may be on the wrong cylinders. The firing order is not always the same as the plug wire layout.

I have a 2001 Chrysler voyger that is having problems starting. It makes all the noises like its is going to turn over but just can't quite get there. It has been serviced and had 3 spark plugs replaced....

On some cras the spark plugs are way back on the rear of the motor and are hard to get to. Usually they can put the car on the rack and get to the spark plugs from underneath. Shouldn't take 3-4 hrs.They might try checking the battery when it's under load as if trying to start the car. That test will tell you if you have a bad battery

91 honda lx will start fine for days and then all of a sudden engine will turn over but it will not run and the green s light will flash. after a while of waiting it will start and run fine. CAN SOMEONE...

Check the following....

1) If battery is older than 5 years replace it. Costco sells great batteries if you are a member.
2) Replace the distributor cap, rotor, spark plug wires, and spark plugs if these are more than 60,000 miles old.

Altogether about $100 in parts if you do it yourself.

Car fails to start one day and starts the next.

I would check all the relays and the computer .
They could be over heating when coming on for a while then shorting out.

Tempature dropped car wont start

Check the voltage on your battery with a voltmeter should be at least 12 volts without any power hooked up to it.

Pull a spark plug wire off of the coil, have someone crank the starter and hold the plug wire very close to the coil (same place you pulled the wire from) to see if there is a spark. Be careful and stay away from the engine will it is cranking

Charge the battery.

Check altenator belt and connections.

warm the car or battery (can you get the car in your garage?)
