Car will not accelerate when gas pushed


Clutch plate and pressure plate seem to be too weak to pull the car. To test the clutch plate, park the car on flat surface. Pull the hand brake up, start the car, depress the foot brake pedal, depress the clutch pedal, put the car in 1st gear, press the gas pedal and leave the clutch pedal at once, while keeping the brake pedal depressed.
Follow one of the two following statements:
1. Engine does not shut down and remain start. (Clutch plate, pressure plate and clutch bearing defective - Replace all as a set)
2. Engine shuts down. (Clutch system is OK and does not require any repair).

Not sure what you mean when you say: "water pump is OUT", but it really sounds like you have a blown headgasket. Is there water pouring out on the ground somewhere or is there a lot of steam coming out the tailpipe. If it's steam out the tailpipe, that is a good indication the headgasket has blown.

Possible but unlikely. You can hold down the gas pedal when cranking that shuts off the injectors, which will clear the motor if it was flooded. Most common problem for no starts on civics are the distributor, could you have unpluged something near it? If not, have a buddy crank the car while you hold a spark plug wire near the engine to see if it has spark. They have all the ignition componets built into the distributor, replace whole unit.

Engine periodically "races" mostly while idling or neutral


the idle surges if this is the case take out the air intake tube that leads to the throttle body, get a can of carburetor fluid and spray around the throttle body. You will need someone to start the car and hold the gas peddle to 2500 rpm while you do this the car will shut of when you do this, restart the car and repeat the process until half of the can is used up. Now check your antifreeze level fill if needed.

Try checking the snorkel tube between the air cleaner and the intake. Open the hood, and have a friend try to rev the engine, and watch the tube...my '92's was collapsing and starving the engine, couldn't get more than 3500-4000 rpm. Could also be a fuel pump problem like low pressure or bad line.
