Question about 1990 Honda Civic
1990 Honda Civic Wagon 1.6l has been good, but one hot muggy day the check engine light came on while driving at about 45mpg and didnt start back up immediately, but 25 to 20 minutes later started back up ..took it to Precision and they replaced the Oxygen sensor, but it wouldnt start back up immediately but 20 minutes later it started , replaced the Distributor and power relay and still does not stay started after it runs for about 40 minutes...There was no fire to the wire that the first mechanic tested..it is a great running car..trying to keep it can someob=ne give me an idea what is the next step in diagnostics??PLEASE HELP
I have the similar starting problem and my mechanic did a bypass wire for the ignition, bypassing the ECU on my Hummer H3, the problem was solved.

Disassemble and clean the carb, particularly the jets. I suspect the charge light being on is a result of your destroyed battery, which needs to be replaced. Sta-bil over the winter and a smart trickle charger will prevent the problems you are having in the future...

is commonly caused by a dirty automatic idle speed control valve and
throttle valve. Buy a can of throttle valve cleaner from NAPA or
Carquest (made by CRC chemicals) and spray it into the air intake
while the engine is running, use up about 1/2 the can, engine will
try to stall hold the speed up, shut it down and let it soak for 30
minutes, restart and blow out the remaining fluid, shut it down and
disconnect the negative battery cable for 5 Min's to reset the base
