It would start up i would go to work and then i would try to start it up and won't turn over after a hour would pass it would start up like nothing was wrong.. it did this to me a couple of times and then yesterday it wouldn't turn over at all.

Re: 93 Honda Civic CX Engine wont turn over?
It sounds like a faulty electrical connection ;check around the battery look for loose wires/anything that looks dodgy/clean battery terminals/check wires at starter motor if you still cant find problem check earth strap from;engine to car chassis.the only two things left are starter motor and ign key lock hope this helps.adrian

It could be a problem with either starter if it won't turn over, the wiring to the starter, or it could be related to the fuel or spark delivery when turning over if the starter does turn the engine over.
Bad ground. Check the battery terminals. The amount of juice required to turn over engine is not getting through, where as the radio draws much less juice. Also, once all connections are cleaned, positive & ground at the battery and fram and the hot at the starter (best to do prior to snow fall anyway), you should be good to go. If not, turn on the interior dome light and try to start it. If it doesn't start, have your battery tested. Finally, if all is good, you should have the alternator tested as well. Most auto parts stores will provide that for free! Please provide feedback ratings
Check the electric fan(s) on the radiator. If it doesn't overheat on the highway and does in city traffic, the most likely cause is the fan not running. there will be a "thermoswitch" that senses the coolant temp and at a certian point will turn the fan on. Make sure the fan is working too. Just apply 12volts to the connection and it should spin. WATCH YOUR FINGERS while you test the fan!!
The 1996 civic has a 1.6L b-16 engine. The only difference between the v-tec and non v-tec engine is the dual overhead cam i believe. The 93 civic also should have a b-16 engine in it. The cylinder head should work.......
My mind goes to battery, starter, or kill switch. If you can play the radio and the lights are working, but you get nothing when you try to start it (not even a clicking sound), it's not likely the starter, either. You may have a kill switch engaged. Some Honda cars have a kill switch that disables the engine from starting. (Anti-theft device installed). Check your user Guide to see if there is info there. Often, there is a button you need to push or some other trigger to release the lockout. Here is what I would try: 1. Conact the seller, if you can, to inquire. 2. Call AAA. They may know the various options, and did help me when I had trouble. 3. Call a Honda dealer to inquire about options for disabling it.
