92 Honda Civic after short run fails to start

92 Honda Civic fails to start after short run till I let it sit for a few minutes with the key on, then it starts and runs fine till I shut it off and try to start it again. Today it failed to start after a long sit and had to leave it at work.

Any ideas to what is going on?

The two most common things are the pgmfi (fuel injection) relay, and the distributors. Replace the relay first, not too expensive and a new one is peace of mind, if that doesn't fix it, my money would be on the distributor. The relay is a rectangular (1"x1"x2") box bolted way up under the drivers side dashboard. It will say "Mitsuba" on it.

92 honda civic turns over fine but doesnt start

ok, this is a commom problem with this 92 hondas,

it may be the pump fuel relay, which is under the dash on the driver side by the fuse panel.

here is a way to determine that.

when you turn the key on the on position

do you hear the fuel pump running while the engine light is on, and does the pump stop running afteer the engine light goes off?

if you do hear the pump running then it means that fuel pump is working fine ( since it way just replaced), but if you don't hear it running while the check engine light is on ( about 2 seconds) chances are the fuel pump relay is not working as it should.

also there are clicks that have to be heard on the starting process.

1 when you turn key to on possition

2 when the check engine light goes off( a click has to be heard just after it goes off)

3 after the car starts

If you don't hear this clicks, try to get your ear close the location of the fuel pump relay( near the fuse panel under the dash).

the fuse relay is just a bunch of circuits soldered, so you can get it to someone who knows how to solder and fix it.

or just get a replacement one at any junkyard. ( cheapp)
