Question about 1998 Honda Civic

2 Answers

My honda civic 1998 ex 1.6 liter is hard to start.This problem just started after letting the car sit for five days. It is not an all the time thing though. It also stalls at low rpms. The car was running fine after second gear. But today it seemed like it wanted to stall in fourth gear, but didn't. I was going to pull the spark plugs and the wires to replace them since I have know idea how old they are. Where and what should I check next please help.

Do the plugs and wires. It will be like a new car. I've gone throught that twice.. My civic (Hondi) Does not like to start in the cold winters of Buffalo, and it is key I keep gas in her at all times (least half a tank. This helps alot..and for the record, she ALWAYS starts. Go Hondi!!!

Since your changing the wires and plug there is no reason not changing the cap and rotor in your distributor..i might check the battery voltage if you have full battery charge and then if not you might check the alternator..anyways do not forget to check your timing also at the back of you intake manifold there is a idle speed you might pull that one out too clean if check for carbon deposit goodluck.

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.

My honda civic start normaly, but after few minute start losing power


Several causes possible.
Carburattor or injection type?
Carburator >> auto choke faulty.
Carburator >> mixture very wrong adjusted
Drawning carburator (needle/floater)
Distributor weights cannot move (dirt/rust spring broken)
Very dirty airfilter, or clogged airfilter
Faulty ignition cap. Check contacts, especially middle one if oldfashioned and nonelectronical.
Ignition timing set incorrectly.
Fuel pump broken.
Fuel filter blocked almost.
Vacuum line damaged.
Exhaust internally clogged by loose plate (corrossion) (potato in tailpipe effect).
And very seldom, water or diesel.

And a list of a lot of other things.

Starting problems


if this problem persists then you could check a few things on it, like on the times when its not even making a noise when trying to turn the key, use rubber/wooden object and tap the starter motor but not touching the contacts on the back. if this amkes it spring into life then it will be your starter motor if this does nothing then it will be a dodgy battery supply. does it also make like a screaching noise while trying to start? if so then definitely your starter motor

1997 Honda Civic EX (automatic) jerks while accelerating?


Check your wires, plugs and coils. I think it is an ignition problem myself. Something is breaking down under a load. My guess would be a bad coil or wire, the hard starting could be a symtem of this also, As I first read your description I was thinking maybe a leaking fuel injector or faulty fuel injector, but I believe it is in the ignition system. I hope this Helps! Merry Christmas!
