My 91 honda civic has a problem starting sometimes. It starts in the morning. Sometimes it will not start on a hot day and it will just shut off while driving occaisionally. Often it must cool off before...


It will be the main relay. It is a massive fuse under the coin tray. The joints become dry and need re-soldered. A very common problem on these cars.

The clunk is the starter engaging the flywheel, check that it is properly seated, a bolt might have come loose.

91 Civic DX cutss off after start.


I own several cars, and do repairs all the time. And one thing i know it can be just about anything. But narrowing it down from what your saying, your solution is on the right path. I would start out with the least expensive work. Test your injectors, sparkplugs, and alternator for voltage. Go get a volt meter. or take it to auto zone or murrays they do free diagnostics on all those parts. Always check before you replace. Than replace the weak links. Which will usually take you to another component. Do sparkplug change,oilchange, flush your radiator if it leads to it--the whole works. it's normally a minor problem.

if you hear a click and it's off-it's part of the ignition and starting system. At somepoint there isnt enough juice to get the fuel and spark to combust.

if you have battery life before turning car on-- check your alternator. YOu could possibly be running off your battery. After a while the car starts and the alternator charges up from the battery and allows it to run. but if it's dead than you will have starting problems and possible shut off at random times.

91 honda civic dx. Starts, runs for a few seconds then stalls


Try pounding on the gas tank with a rubber mallet or similar tool. (careful not to dent the tank) Try starting it. If it runs, replace the fuel pump (it's nfg). I've diagnosed numerous fuel pumps this way. Remember the pump needs to be replaced, if you drive it, you don't know when it'll fail for good. Hope this helps. Please post the results.

91 civic won't start


Perhaps . You can loosen the timing belt cover " plastic " enough to see if the belt has snapped. Otherwise you may have to remove cover to see.
