Question about 1994 Honda Civic
I have a 1994 Honda Civic EX and it wont start now. It was working on and off for a bit but now it won't start at all. Everything else powers on, but when I turn the key the only sound I hear is the fuel pump turning on and kind of a click or buzz noise when I turn the key to start it. Would anybody be able to tell me what it could be. I have went to auto parts stores and had them test my battery they say it is fine. one said that the alternator was putting out 60something and should be putting out 90 something but every turns on so I don't think that is the problem. Thank you
There is a round plastic disc with a metal tab on it located inside your distributor. It's called a pick-up coil. What happens is when you're driving, this plastic disc shrinks from heat and causes the little metal tab to not make contact with your distributor cap. The one for my truck was approximately $40. My problem was erratic like yours until one day, it wouldn't start at all. I put $300-400 of parts in it until I changed this. Started right up. Honda cars are notorious for this. Hope this helps and good luck!
