    I drove the car home and parked it for two days, went out to stsrt it and all it does is crank over but will not start. I checked fuel ,spark, and timming, all seems to be ok, i did however notice that the fuel pressure was low for this type of system, the parte store said this fuel pressure should be 30 to 40 psi, would this be the problem?

Make sure you have pressure to your fuel rail, if you do , then check your timing it could have jumped or be off, make sure you have spark to all four wires. and for the fuses turn your ignition key to on position and get a test light, ground the test light to a good ground and apply the light to both slots of each fuse, if it lights on both sides of the fuse then the fuse is good, if it only lights on one end of the fuse the fuse is probably bad so pull it and look to see if its fried, and if it doesnt light up on either side it is most likely good, thats about all i can think of, hope it helps

Make sure your distruibutor rotor in turning while cranking engine, if it is timing belt ok, more then likely your not getting spark to spark plugs check your ignition coil, but more then likely it's going to be your ignition module.

97 Honda Civic shakes at start and check eng light comes on.


It looks like misfiring in one cylinder. That is why check engine come on. Misfiring can be due to spark plugs/wiring/worn distributor cap. Maybe also vaccum leak and clogged injectors (use injector cleaner).

95 civic wont start


An engine needs 3 things to run: Fuel, compression, ignition.

Maybe the timing belt went out. Take off the dist cap and see if the rotor turns as you crank the engine.

Next run a compression test on all the cylinders.
