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...

thank u

rate me!!

1990 honda civic wagon starts but idels irratically and turns off


This problem 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 idle control

I have a 1990 Honda Civic LX, and the engine light has stayed on for 10 minutes after driving on the freeway and then it stays off for a few days. Is this something that I should be concerned about?


Maybe, your engine has electronically-controlled adjustable valves, one of the modules may be going out on you...but the only way to check that is to actually go to a Honda dealer because most indy shops do not have the equipment necessary to pinpoint which module.
