Question about 1995 Honda Civic
I recently had my fuel injectors cleaned on my 1995 Honda Civic EX. After that my car would crank, blows white smoke from under the hood and start after 3 or 4 attempts. After that, the car will start and run with no problems exception is it doesn't have the great acceleration it had when the injectors where cleaned. I let the gas run out until on empty so I can put in a fuel cleaner. I never got a chance to put in the fuel cleaner. I put in gas in the tank and now the engine will crank, start for 5 seconds, blow white smoke from under the hood and tail pipe, and then turns off. Do I need a new fuel pump and filter?
I would talk to who cleaned the injectors, I don't know if it something they did or not. It could be a stuck open injector. The exhaust would have a raw fuel odor if it was. What it sounds like is a blown headgasket, which can just happen. The exhaust would have a sweet smell to it. Usually starts as a small leak (between cyl. 2 & 3), the engine burns the coolant while driving which you don't see. Then the coolant level gradually drops to a point where the car overheats, which warps the head, causing a large leak. Now you see the coolant burning (white smoke).
Good luck Honda Al
