97 honda civic wont start,got fuel,spark,compresion,new timing belt,its in time,new spark plugs,new distributor cap,new crankshaft position scensor


I would suggest to get a propane torch and turn on with out lighting it (flame less) Place in intake port to manifold crank and see if starts. this will let you know if injectors are cycling or not. This engine has Three sensors that keep the engine running crank,TDC,cam. The TDC and CAM are in the distributor and crank is behind timing belt cover.

My 1998 honda civic died when i was driving it. It cranks but dosn't start it also makes a noice at the beginning could it be the fuel pump?


How many miles are on it? Did you have the timing belt changed at 90,000 miles? Is there spark to the spark plugs? Do you have fuel pressure at the fuel rail? A broken timing belt will make the car sound alot different than normal when cranking.

My 1998 honda civic ex. It cranks but Engine does not start . I could not locate the fuel injectors fuse. I openned fuel line and fuel spurt out when it cranking. But I smell no gas at airfilter intake.


How many miles are on it? Have you changed timing belt? Was there any symptoms prior to non starting? Pull a spark plug see if you are getting spark. If not it is probably coilpack on distributor have it tested. Common problem I have had experienced with civics.

1995 honda civic d15b7 cranks but wont start. new


Are you sure you have correct timing? its definetly a fule problem, if timing is good then turn your key to the on position and try to listin for the fule pump to prime. While the key is in on position go to fuel rail, there is a valve on fule rail called sharader valve. Get a small screw driver and press valve in to check if car has fule pressure. if pressure is present then it is incorrect timing or possible bad cam sensor.

My 1998 honda civic ex wont start, I have tried changing the fuel filter, distributor cap and rotor, and air filter. It cranks but wont fire up... a couple days ago the car stopped running while my dad...


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.

Cranks but wont start


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
