1997 civic cranks but wont start

Lately i cant get my civic to start after i turn it off. it cranks but wont start. i have to let it sit for a while before it'll start. the last thing that was done to it was i replaced a lost radiator cap (not the radiator cap that goes to it but it fit). any ideas??

97 honda civic wont start,got fuel,spark,compresion,new timing belt,its in time,new spark plugs,new distributor cap,new crankshaft position scensor


I would suggest to get a propane torch and turn on with out lighting it (flame less) Place in intake port to manifold crank and see if starts. this will let you know if injectors are cycling or not. This engine has Three sensors that keep the engine running crank,TDC,cam. The TDC and CAM are in the distributor and crank is behind timing belt cover.

1997 chevy blazer s10 cranks but wont start


You have a new battery and it cranks. Turning over is cranking. You are saying it won't start after sitting for six months? What is an old mechanic? Was the cable installed at home during the one year layoff? It sounds as though you failed to hold the old mechanic responsible for installing the correct cable or adjusting the one you have ,so it will start. You have a safety switch issue by the sound of it. Make sure you have the right cable and then find out how to install and if applicable,adjust properly

1997 honda civic, it shut down while running (50-55mph), tried to turn it on and sounds like it trying to start but wont go...


i hate to say this but you may have broken your timing belt, and thats real bad on a honda. just loosen the valve cover bolts and remove the plastic top cover over the belt and see if the belt moves then cranking the engine, i hope for your sake this isn't the case because hondas are equipped with an interference engine which means when the timing belt goes the valves hit the pistons

95 civic wont start


An engine needs 3 things to run: Fuel, compression, ignition.

Maybe the timing belt went out. Take off the dist cap and see if the rotor turns as you crank the engine.

Next run a compression test on all the cylinders.
