Question about 1994 Honda Civic

3 Answers

1994 Honda civic acts like not getting gas overnight sitting.

My 94 Honda Civic was hard to start if it sat overnight. I could keep trying until finally it started. It would spit and sputter acting like it did not have gas until it seemed to get primed while running. Then once revved up and running it would be fine all day long and start everytime no problem. Now it wont get that initial start after sitting all night. Any thing you can tell me will help. I thought maybe the fuel filter might be clogged?

I think the common "ask a mech" is why most folks use fixya....$$$$$$....and hell yes they will charge u ....take advantage of u and i have a trust issue .....what i do first is check to see if u r getting fuel loosen the gas line in the motor place a towel underneath and get some one to turn the car over....if its comnig out good...u r getting proper fuel if it is spitting or very slow start with replacing fuel filter or just check it ....if u can blow through it without forcing hard its okay..if you have to blow very hard and don't feel air from other side its stopped up....now...if its getting gas and filter is good...make sure u r getting good spark...take #1 spark plug off from the plug only and get a wood or rubber handle screw driver and stick in plug wire hole then get someone to turn car over...if u see a spark then u r getting spark...if not ....well... it could be coil wire...plug wires....bad coil pack etc....start with these tasks first and THEN seek a mech...at least u can tell him/her its getting fuel...its getting spark..and the mech will realize u know something and may be less likely to take advantage of u! Good luck!

Not the fuel filter because then the car would ruin like **** all day.. you might need new spark plugs or alternor.. the alternator gets juice from you battery. your alternator needs alot of juice for a start big start up.. if it isnt that i could be something simple as a spark plug. have a mechanic check it out. they wont charge alot

Check for leaks, you may have a leaking fuel injector. or a bad fuel pressure valve, i think what happening is that, fuel sistem must be pressurized ok, but for some reason the sistem is loosing that pressure, thats why it takes many tries to start your engine, fuel sistem needs to have predeterminated pressure to dothe job.

My 94 civic just dies while driving. let it sit for like a few minutes then it starts right up again.... car doesn't bog or anything, and I can hear it trying to crank. Crank noise sounds really good, but...


Try your cam/crank position sensor. Normally if its not working properly the tach will not registor when cranking. You should get at least 100rpms while cranking!

The mechanic should check on the battery if low in electricity then charge .There are some cases that some times when a car is hard to start the cost of the problem is the battery . If still wont start then you'll have to choke and it will run .

yes indeed number one see if there is any spark, if no spark look at your distributor roter first, i suggest you replace this as well if you haven't already.. you can pick them up at any auto shop for like less than 10 bucks. if it is a second hand distributor that has been sitting in a junk yard for months, chances are one of the wires are corroded or something.. get a new one if so they are only like 30 bucks and i think you get a discount if you give them your old one for the core.

Try checking the snorkel tube between the air cleaner and the intake. Open the hood, and have a friend try to rev the engine, and watch the tube...my '92's was collapsing and starving the engine, couldn't get more than 3500-4000 rpm. Could also be a fuel pump problem like low pressure or bad line.
