Question about 1991 Honda Civic

1 Answer

1989 Honda Civic

I bought a distributor and a rotor button and plugs to replace on this car. I changed the plug wires and took off the distributor. I can see the rotor button and I know it is only held in by 1 screw but I don't know what I have to take off to get to it(if anything at all). Can somebody please tell me how to take it off?

    This was a screw on rotor button. I could see the screw but didn't know how to get to it. After posting I went and took another look. There were 4 screws holding something in place over the top of it, 2 of which I could get to, the other 2 were under grommet like things. I pushed them out with a flathead screwdriver and was able to get to the other 2 screws. I removed this housing and then I was able to get to the top of the rotor button screw. Maybe this will help someone out there.

Not getting any fire from distributor to plugs

check that you're getting spark from the coil to the distributor. Could be a bad coil or bad wire.

No spark on the 98 honda civic ex coupe coil is good and icm is good what else could it be?

If the coil is good and giving out spark and your ICM is good the cap can have a missing button which will not allow spark to go to the spark plugs through the plug wires do replace the distributor cap and rotor and spark plug wires

No spark on 96 civic changed distributer

If you have changed the plugs, wires, and distributor, then you should check to see if the coil is putting off a spark. you can do that with a wire grounding it to the engine. It is most likely the problem. If it is putting off a good spark, and your rotor button and distributor cap are good, then for some reason the computer is not telling the coil to put out a spark. On that new of a car, the ignition is electronically controlled.

I bought a 2000 civic with 67000 miles on it and it ran ok and was getting 38mpg notknowing about the car i bought plugs wires and distributor cap ingition rotor it had autolite plugs in it so someone had...

the only thought that comes to mind is to re-check your spark plug gap, the reason is that if the gap is slightly larger, plug efficiency will drop, thus fuel economy and power, please confirm that some platinum plugs the gap is not adjustable, (.044 thousands) good luck!

What order do i plug the spark plugs into the distributor on 1989 honda civic 1.5L

The plug wires are different lengths for different spark plugs. The best way to not get messed up is to do one wire at a time. Unplug old wire from distributor and plug, compare it to the new ones, find the new one that is the same length and replace. You don't want to get the wires mixed up. Hope this helped.

1991 Honda Civic Won't Start

Try doing an ohms test on your fuel injectors. Sounds like 1 or 2 could be bad.
