1990 honda civic wagon starts but idels irratically and turns off

This problem is commonly caused by a dirty automatic idle speed control valve and throttle valve. Buy a can of throttle valve cleaner from NAPA or Carquest (made by CRC chemicals) and spray it into the air intake while the engine is running, use up about 1/2 the can, engine will try to stall hold the speed up, shut it down and let it soak for 30 minutes, restart and blow out the remaining fluid, shut it down and disconnect the negative battery cable for 5 Min's to reset the base idle control

My neighbor went to jump my car but put negative to positive and positive to negative. Now my car doesn't work at all even with a new charged battery.

In the fuse panel under the hood of the vehicle on the passenger side there is a "main" 80 amp fuse that pretty much is your main power source from the batery. Below is a diagram of the fuse layout. I marked the fuse you need to check (number 30). Be glad it was there or you could have had some major electrical problems. I hope this helps you and good luck.

My batterie died and it want start by jumping the battery but where do i put the jumper cables to jump start it

Connect the negative (-) to the black and the positive (+)to the red of the 'good' battery car, then connect the positive first and then finally the neg. to the frame of the vehicle that is being jumped, as far away from the battery as possible.

Remove in the opposite order after the car is successfully jumped.

Don't jump a frozen battery.

1990 Jeep grand Wagoneer i ran out of gas,when i put gas in in the jeep the truck try to start but start draging then just did nothing,i try to jump it and steel nothing but just a clicking sound

by running out any debris in your tank will get sucked into your fuel pump. REplacing the fuel pump usually means removing the tank. You can try replacing the fuel filter first its much easier and cheaper. The filter is attached to your fuel line between the tank and the engine, usually in the frame. TAkes about 15 minutes to replace.

  4. Support the tank on a jack and remove the retaining strap nuts.
  5. Lower the tank and remove it.
  6. Notice the position of the filter for replacement. Support the pump with one hand and grasp the filter with the other. Rotate the filter in one direction, then pull off of the pump. Discard the filter.
  7. Disconnect the fuel pump connector, on wagons it will not be necessary.
  8. On all models excluding wagons:
    1. Place the sending unit on a bench upside down, then pull the fuel pump downwards to remove from the mounting bracket. Tilt the pump outwards and remove from the pulsator.

    2. Disconnect the positive lead (gray) from the pump, then loosen the coupler clamps.
To install:

    1. Assemble the rubber bumper and insulator onto the pump.
    2. Position the fuel sender assembly upside down and install the fuel pump between the pulsator and mounting bracket.
    3. Connect the pump electrical connector.
  2. On all wagon models:
    1. Position the fuel sender assembly upside down and install the coupler and coupler clamps to the inlet tube, but do not tighten at this time.
    2. Install the pump between the coupler and the mounting bracket, then tighten the clamps so that 5-8 teeth are engaged.
    3. Attach the positive lead (gray) to its positive terminal with the nut, then attach the negative lead (black) to the negative terminal.Always install a new filter when installing a new pump.
  3. Position the pump filter on the new pump and push the outer edge of the ferrule until it is fully seated.
  4. Install the sending unit.
  5. Install the gas tank and check for leaks.
  6. Reconnect the battery cable.da5e8e9.jpg

Dead Battery

Make sure your cables positive and negative are in good shape. If they are, remove the negative cable and use a test light to jump across the neg. terminal to the cable. If there is a power draw, the test light will illuminate. At this point, remove the fuses one at a time until the test light turns off. What ever that particular fuse goes to is the circuit with the power draw. Hope this helps.
