Question about 1994 Honda Civic Del Sol

1 Answer

Clicking noise Car wont start, makes popping sound like the timing is off. But i checked the timing and it seemed to be right on. My crank pulley doesnt have timing marks and the timing cover is so dirty i cant see them. I retimed it anyway but all i could do is stick a long screwdriver in through the #1 spark plug hole to find TDC and go with that. What else can i do?

SOURCE: somedays my car will start

A common problem is the ignition switch.
When it does not start....with the car in park or neutral jump it at the starter....or check for power at the small wire at the starter while trying to crank the engine.
Power in the small wire while trying to crank means 99% starter problem......no power means 99% switch.
The switch is available in the after market parts stores.

SOURCE: need a picture or diagram of top dead center/86' honda prelude 2.

From what I see in my manual,

1.There is a Timing Pointer on the back of the engine. There is a White mark on the flywheel. The white mark must line up with the timing pointer, for Number 1 piston to be at Top Dead Center.

2.Facing the engine, looking at the camshaft sprocket. The sprocket has spokes. On one of those spokes is the word, "UP" in raised letters, or there is a small Dot. As you can see here, the spoke with the word UP goes -> Up.
(Same thing of course if it is a Dot, instead of UP)

On the back of the camshaft gear, (Sprocket), are marks. On the edges of the camshaft gear. These line up with the top edge of the cylinder head. The surface of the cylinder head, where the valve cover bolts down to.

I'm sorry, at present I do not have a website, that I could link you to for a diagram, or photo.

There was a thumpiing noise in the engine, something popped and now it wont start.


either you have a snapped timing belt or snapped valve.
Do attempt to turn engine via crankshaft pulley bolt. if there is no turn then you have to remove the timing cover and see what is the timing belt condition,

Turns over but wont crank...horrible screeching noise


To clarify, if the engine cranks or turns over but won't start, look for a stuck pulley on the engine. You may be hearing the belt slipping on that pulley. Take the belt off and try turning each pulley - also try starting the engine with the belt off.

Humming noise and wobbling pulley 1995 Corolla


Maybe, you would have to remove the belts and then take a look at all the pulleys, it could be a pulley or a bad waterpump, or even something in the timing belt, like a timing belt pulley or tensioner pulley or waterpump,the best way to find out is to remove all the belts and then start the motor and listen for the noise, if the noise is still there with the belts removed then its something in the timing belt, but is the noise goes away then its something with the belts a pulley or a alternator, you would have to inspect all pulley and the acc, hope this helps,

My alternator belt broke i fixd it now my car wont start it cranks but sounds funny


I am not sure where the crank position sensor is on your car but when the alternator belt broke on my Buick it trashed the crank sensor that is located next to the crank shaft pulley. The computer needs the crank senor to know the position of the crank shaft. If the sensor is bad the car will not start.

My car wont start and it keeps making a clicking noise but the lights and radio turn on.


If the headlights dim when you try to crank the enging the problem will be the starter motor jamming. If they remain bright you can suspect the starter soleniod or wiring but as it is making a clicking noise, I would look at the solenoid first.
