Question about 1996 Honda Civic

1 Answer

96 Honda Civic died, then wont restart.

Was driving my 96 Honda Civic (5 speed manual) down the road, in 2nd gear, slowly accelerating at approx 3200rpm. The car dropped down to 2000 rpm (no matter what I did with the gas pedal) for approx 4-5 seconds, then died completly.

I have changed the distributor, ICM, Coil, Wires, and Plugs. There is fuel at the rail, and I still have no spark. Since its an early 96, my OBD II scanner cant pull the codes... and Im really out of ideas aside from the PCM and the wiring harness. Any other ideas?

If you can hear the fuel pump cut in, try the mass air flow sensor. MAF.

Whats wrong with Helen?


The speed sensor might be bad. I used to own a 99 Mitsubishi Eclipse with the same symptons. The car will start, but will not pass the 1st or 2nd gear, the speedometer will be at 0. I replaced the speed sensor and all the problems went away.

What causes 1998 Honda civic keeps dying?


Need way more information. What's in common when this hapopens? Are you stopped at a light? Slowing down? Shifting into 2nd gear? When you restart, is there a particular pattern or sound when it restarts? Is it hard or easy to restart? Does it start right up, or does the engine spin and "try to start" before it finally catches? And on and on. Try to isolate specific common issues and post those, please.

2001 civic with 50, miles will not stay in fith gear. All other gears hold well.


Honda did have a problem with some of their 5 speed manuals. 5th gear bounces out after you have shifted or when you accelerate ?
Either the snchros are bad and are not allowing the gears to seat, or a gear is bad.
You will have to find a qualified reliable auto center to do the repairs.
Please let me know what you find.

I have a 1999 civic ex auto. when i first start the car and drive it run fine for about 5 mins then the car slows down and wont accelerate at all. from a dead stop it take about 10 sec to get up to 20 mph....


try moving the shifter to first and then second gear, until you get to drive. if one fails to switch then it can be a transmision problem. when that happens also try shutting of the car and restarting it and see if it continues to do the same thing. this might be because the trans is warm and does not shift properly, also the result being you need a knew trasnmision.
