93 Honda Civic dx will not start. new fuel pump igniter, has spark
sorry if you guess and guess wrong. really, must be expensive.
ok got spark (and timing is good, timing light test)
if test fuel ( use instant start in a spray can) fails, with spark
then engine is bad, compression is checked, see near 80 not 150+ PSI , the timing belt has slipped. if not changed by the book
they slip and the engine grenades (or bends valves)
this is an interference engine, never ignore the belt.
there is an acid test order.
1 compression good.
2 spark good, and timed
3 fueling is last. (if spark plugs dry add fuel, by hand)
cant burn fuel with no compression and spark. well with EFI it cant run right with bent valves either.
here is Chad running an engine (any) with no gas tank
even his battery is dead. and has external battery. for 12v power.
a real trooper.
ive done this 1000s of times. in 60 years.
his engine only makes 80 psi (old) and still starts.
but EFI will never do that not that low. compression
the cam slips and goes retarded compression drops to near 1/2
and the valve timing is so bad, the exh opens late and pollutes the
next last intake charge. the card house falls and then the valve bend.
take if from me, nostarts are a blessing on any honda
maybe it saved your valves.? do the service on time./
