Misfires when the engine is warmed up usually point toward an ignition issue.If you have an distributorless igniton system(I think you do),you can measure the ohms across the plug towers on the same coil, and compare it to the other coil(s).If you have a misfire,i would think the check engine light would come on,though,so if it isn't setting a trouble code,then you may have to wait until it gets worse so a code will be triggered.

SOURCE: 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.

SOURCE: 96 honda civic ex runs hot

It is either a blown head gasket or a cracked head. Depending on which motor your civic has, this could be a tricky replacement, either way, you have to remove the head off of the motor, and then take the head to have it pressure checked to see if there is a crack in it. Nine times out of ten though, you can see a crack in the head with your eye, but you have to have the right "eye" to be able to see the crack.

SOURCE: What could make my 03 civic ex overheat and cool

I have a 2003 Honda Civic EX as well (158k miles). At first it would overheat when idling, and then my heater started working sporadically. It would blow cold air when idling, then hot air when driving. It would also cause my car to overheat. I would turn the temp to cold and the car temp would reduce. My coolant level would also drop to next to nothing every few months, but I never saw any pooling, or leaking from the radiator. I changed the water pump, thermostat, all the belts since I was there anyway, the water sensor and the radiator cap. After all this it was asymptomatic for 4 days, then the problems persisted. I took it to the mechanic and it was diagnosed with a blown head gasket. The test for it is fairly simple and runs ~$45 (1/2hr labor charge). I would try that before changing out more parts when you don’t need to.

Why does my 1994 honda civic ex not start only when it is hot outside?


My first guess would be the fuel pump relay or the ignition module.
Look for something that gets hot and fails like a relay or electrical part.
When it won't start, check for spark at the plugs and the fuel pressure.

What other engine will fit a 97 civic ex?


The 96-98 Civic EX came with an OBD2A D16Y8 engine. That is the only engine that will go in as a direct replacement with your current engine ECU. It's an SOHC VTEC engine that has two extra connections not found on the other 96-98 Civic engines - a VTEC solenoid and a special oil sensor used to determine if VTEC engagement is possible. If you swap in an older Civic engine (92-95 generation) you'll have to convert the car to OBD1 (requires a special adapter hardness) and run the ECU that goes with whatever engine you use. This will break functionality of your OBD2 diagnostics port, and depending on which state you live in will cause you to fail emissions checks. If you install a D16Y8 engine from a 99-00 Civic EX, you will have to swap the intake and exhaust manifolds from your old engine to the new engine, and you will be able to continue to run your existing OBD2A wiring and ECU. The 99-00 Civic EX engines have additional sensors, since those engines are OBD2B. The easiest fix would be to find a SOHC VTEC D16Y8 from a 96-98 Civic EX, as it would be a direct plug and play replacement.

My car when the sun hit, dont start


Do you mean you have trouble starting it when it is hot outside? If so get the battery checked first, heat and cold stress the battery.

If you mean you lose power as you drive when its hot out, that is a whole other problem.
Good Luck

Honda civic hard start when its hot


you might have leaking valve seats they are expensive to replace, what happens is while your driving they let some oil go past them resulting in oil being dripped into the cylinderwhere the gasoline is supposed to go ..its hard to start because it needs to burn off the oil first.
