1996 honda civic ex automatic starts when the engine is cold but has a really hard time starting if the engine was just running

is it flooding the operators manual, (all cars) tells you what to do.
it tells you to crank wide open throttle, (bar stool, pedal to dah metal)
this activates super secret unflood mode by which the ECU cuts ALL fuel injections, start now and with cute black cloud at end of tail pipe>
that it was flooding.
the tests are no diff, from 1920 to now.
compresion good.? if it runs perfect ,most times, seems it is.
good spark? you check spark ? and then pulled all spark plugs.
are he soaking with fuel,or all black tips? ever do a tuneup this decade?
bad fueling, there are many tests for bad fueling. ask.

if engine is good.
the EGR not stuck open
the spark is good an all cylinders with good sparkplugs
then its bad fueling.
is the CEL lamp glowing key on,
if yes good, if not The ecu has lost 12vdc power.
if yes, then attach any scan tool to near knees 16pin connector
crank engine for 5 seconds, got DTC errror as you release key./
yes , bingo

when you stop a car, hot the ECT reads 180F or more.
does it> if it reads say 50F, IT FILL FLOOD.
you can see the ECT just key on, with any scan tool, no need to start.
there are more. but this is a good start.(no pun)

Why wont my 93 honda civic ex start and run and come out of park

You have to have power to the brake switch and the key switch to release the park solenoid.
There is an 80amp fuse and a 50amp fuse that powers the key switch.
Have you checked them to see if they have power ?

Got a 97 Honda civic ex and it won't turn over,

It appears that the longer time to warm up is because there was no water in the radiator and running for 30 minutes would cause the motor to seize. Check it out.

this happened to me too. Try using the spare key and if it works the old key needs to be replaced or have a new key made from the spare key. dispose of the 1st key
