Question about 1994 Honda Civic Del Sol

1 Answer

Popping noise Car wont start, made a popping noise while cranking, checked the timing seemed to be right on. Since my crank pulley has no timing marks on it and neither does my timing cover i had to take the spark plug out for #1 and turn the crank by hand until i got it right on TDC. I havent tried to start it again after doing all of that yet, but is there anything else i can do?

The crank pulley itself wont.. the pulley actually bolts on to the end of the crank.. behind that pulley is where the mark is..there is also a mark on the cam sprocket under that cover..if you turned it by hand where was the rotor pointed when the cap was removed?..if the belt slipped it could be out enough to backfire thru the in take..

SOURCE: Engine turns over, won't start, no fire at plugs

What are you wondering is correct. Let check the coil first. if coil is good the there is a problem with the ignition module. If the ignition module is good then a problem with the crankshaft sensor. The coil can be checked by measure resistance of the terminals of the primary coil and secondary coil separately to see if it open. To check if it can generate a spark, once you identify the primary coil terminal, run 12 V wire to these terminal, connect a spark plug to the secondary coil, by just leaving a spark plug with connected with spark plug wire and let it touch the engine chassis. Now you have to make pulses at the 12 volts connection by making a break and connection several time to turn it on and off to generate the spark at spark plug. The ignition module is supposed to do what you are doing now to generate the spark. If it is bad, it can't do what you did then a spark is not generated. For the crankshaft sensor, only the shop can tell you it is bad or not. Good luck.

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.

First of all. you have to line up the rotor to the number one distributor tower with the engine at O" TDC, so your timing probably was initially correct. Sounds like you are getting TOO MUCH FUEL. Could be fuel pressure regulator located on fuel rail. Also your plugs are probably fouled too from all the excess fuel.

I REPLACED TIMING BELT .AND I WANT TO KNOW HOW TO RESET THE TIMING ,SO AS NOT TO DAMAGE TO MOTOR. WHEN I GO TO START IT UP .


If you did not set the gears(pulleys) in the same place or set the marks in the timing belt to the marks in the gears the car wont start. when you do the the job is when you set the timing, not after you done. If you use a cheap timing belt those belts do not have marks, I recommend to get a belt from toyota that has a mark for each cam pulley and another mark for the crank pulley. Toyota doesn't have interference engines, so no matter how bad is your timing the car wont start just spin.

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,
