It sounds like maybe a piston or rod knocking. Check your oil level and make sure it's full.

SOURCE: 91 honda civic dx. Starts, runs for a few seconds then stalls

Try pounding on the gas tank with a rubber mallet or similar tool. (careful not to dent the tank) Try starting it. If it runs, replace the fuel pump (it's nfg). I've diagnosed numerous fuel pumps this way. Remember the pump needs to be replaced, if you drive it, you don't know when it'll fail for good. Hope this helps. Please post the results.

First you need to pull the engine trouble code to see what the problem is.

SOURCE: Engine Light Stays On

If there is an advanced auto or an autozone near you, take it there, they don't charge to hook up a code scanner. Takes about a minute, a repair shop will charge almost $100.00.

SOURCE: 1997 Honda Civic emission control system problem?

Yes the problem is effecting the emissions controls. Sounds like the timing if off. Take the vehicle to you local Auto Parts Store and most will scan the ECU for fault codes. This code will help you to figure out the problem.

Not getting oil to the pistons. Making knocking noise. Wont stay on.


Hello
Has the engine been run low on oil? Does the knocking get louder as the engine warms up? Have you had a automotive technician listen to this noise? Pistons don't really knock, the bearings in the engine called the crankshaft and piston connecting rod bearings do make a loud knocking noise, if that is the case the engine must be removed from the car and rebuilt.
