Question about 1991 Honda Civic

1 Answer

My honda sputters out and dies after 8-10 miles

I drive a 1991 Honda civic hatchback, automatic d15 duel point. As I drive it everything is good but as I go about 8 to 10 miles it starts to stall out my rpm’s drop and it shuts off it will first start sputtering and it will back fire then turns off I pull it to the edge of the road start it up again some times it will turn over and start or ill need to Wight for it to start buy keep cranking it over in till it does start then I try and find idle when I do get it to go back to idle it will still sputter but it will kind of fix it self then ill put it in to drive and start driven but a mile or two down the road or a minute after it will sputter out again it will do this if the engine is hot or cold so fare I got told it can be a couple of things so I fixed and put in a new fuel filter, fuel pump, new plugs, new spark plug wires, new distributor cap, new ignition coil, new fuel injector presser regulator, and I thought it mite be water in my gas so I drained it out dried it out and put new fuel from shell and dry gas additive in it it still stalls out and dies the same way every time and I thought it would be my alternator but my battery will never die and always keeps a charge so I don’t think it can be that however I did not replace the distributor or injectors and I also got told I’m mite be my manifold I’m all out of answers if you can tell me what it mite be I’m open for answers and any questions thanks Nick

Got a 1991 honda civic hatchback dx for a starter car and its automatic, when it wants not all the time,so im driving 30mph and for some reason it like slips than catchs back on gear any ideas?

All Honda Civic Hatchbacks have been raced and thrashed to death by 20 year olds. Not a good starter car as all the other 20 year olds had the same idea.

Check the Transmission fluid level it may be at the operational limit and sucking air. If not, get a newer vehicle and not a Civic :>)

good advice is to always run the fault codes when the engine is playing up. After all that is what they are there for. They save so much money and frustration. So run the fault codes and fix the faulty sensor .

93 honda civic ex sputtered and died while driving

Is there any white smoke coming out the exhaust? Sounds like the same problem my friend had when he warped his head on his 91 civic. Any overheating at all? Otherwise another guess would be maybe a bad catalitic converter that clogged up. Hope this helps any, good luck
