Question about 1994 Honda Civic
My 1994 civic was running rough, rough idle, hesitated to start, bad acceleration, when coming to a stop it died on me a couple of times. I can hear the fuel pump when the key is in the on position. Also the check engine light would sometimes come on. I changed the fuel filter, spark plugs and wires and it was still slow to start and had a rough idle, but once I got going it ran great, but felt like it was going to die while idling. After the test drive I went to check the compression in the cylinders and then it died. I haven't been able to get it to start since. I going to change the PVC valve here in a few. Any suggestions? Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks in advance.
Why ignore the CEL??????
you cross over the spark wires. lost firing order.
its not PVC but is due.
sure, lost spark, lost spark time, crossed wire.
if spark is good try test fuel
clean the EGR, if it sticks open car will never idle fast.
and will stall.
clean the ISC do the ECU can in fact now control idle.
you are are on track, most here are not.
you did a tune up, that is good , and is first.
bad fuel, car parked for year, dead?
now the 1 question, (after it runs)
can your happy right off save the stall
only this counts..... 1st....
check firing order now that wires are scrambled.
then check for spark on all 4 cyl spark wire ends.
then if spark is good,
and compression, good, 150 not 80psi
you do know this is and inteference engine right? and if not
fresh timing belt the engine will grenade. for sure.
dont listen to dorks telling you, mine didnt, they are idiots.
if you like Russian roulette ? and $3000 new motors are joy?
then skip the belt.
that finishes off a 60k turn up, spark , filters and da belt.
then spark timing.
all the fuel in the world is useless on a dead motor or dead spark'.
fueling is last.
if motor and spark are good, then yes, fueling
try test fuel (spary)
if that works for duration of spray
then check fuel pressure
that be next.
and more... ask

Back then, Honda suggested timing belt replacement every 60,000 miles. If your Honda has that much mileage or more and has never had the belt replaced, now may be the time.
