1991 Honda Civic 1500 idles irregularly, with check engine light.


I think I would suspect the fuel injectors, especially since that is the code you are getting. Fuel injectors clog up, get dirty, stop working the way they should. They can be cleaned (you can remove them and send them to a company that cleans them and makes them like new, or, they can be cleaned in the car by some garages, or, you can get a can of Sea Foam spray and spray it into your throttle housing several times to try to do some cleaning that way, or, you can dump a can of Sea Foam (non-spray) into your gas tank and run it with the fuel through your injectors). You should probably check when you first start the car to see if you are getting any leakage from one or another injector (one or another may look moist or wet if the seals are leaking). You can also do the long screwdriver test (hold the bit of the screwdriver against each injector in turn and listen with your ear against the other end to see if each is clicking regularly). I would try the Sea Foam first.
I hope this is helpful in getting you started on a fix.

1991 honda civic si starting problem


have you check the ground wire from your negative wire to battery post? check to see the battery is strong. if it doesn't turn over the engine or crank the engine mean no good ground to the cables. if the car ran fine I dont understand why the car wont crank or turn the motor over it just quit. if the battery check out strong 12 V, starter serenoid may be faulty on your starter or it may be hot and will not turn starter over.

1991 Honda Civic No Spark


Excessive resistance in the wire (including breaks or shorts) or the fault is not the wire itself but what feeds that wire its power.Have you run a seperate wire from the battery to feed power to that wire yourself.?Does the car start if you do?

wont crank is sign of bad starter or bad battery or connections from positive fat cable to starter. or bad solenoid. or even relay that signals solenoid to engage. also if car shuts off and wont start but cracnks. it could be the pickup coils in distributor, not giving it signal to fire spark or alarm system bypassed wrong
