My 1998 Honda Civic has spark and sounds like it wants to start. It's a 1.6L 4 cyl. How do I check fuel injection system?

If you haven't changed your fuel filter in awhile, an easy way to check to see if your engine is getting fuel from the fuel pump is to replace the fuel filter. When you install the new fuel filter, leave the connection that goes to the engine off, and have someone help you: Turn on the ignition while making sure the outlet of the fuel filter is going into some sort of container. You should have fuel pressure of some sort. If not, troubleshoot the fuel pump circuit. There is a fuse and a relay involved. If you don't want to mess with the fuel filter, you can purchase a fuel pressure tester for less than $30, and it connects to a threaded fitting on your fuel rail.

My 2000 honda CIVIC WILL NOT START as it cold, but after it runs, it runs fine

Fuel pressure needs to be tested when it has set over night, before attempting to start it. It maybe the fuel pressure regulator is leaking off, or the check-ball in the fuel pump could be leaking back, or fuel injectors could be leaking, which would be least likely.

I have an '89 Honda Civic with 58,000 original miles on it. It started right up, then died within a couple of seconds. Now it will not start. I am getting spark to the plugs, and fuel to the pgm. Also, I...

spray some starting fluid in the intake and try to start it again, with fuel injection you may not be getting enough fuel pressure for the car to start and run.

I have a 1990 honda civic hatchback si with an 89 ZC DOHC black top engine.. the rear motor mount is cracked and each time i down shift the engine raddles.. how do i change out the mount? and if possible.....

You will need something to lift the engine so that you can take the pressure off of the mount. It sounds like your fuel pump may be wearing out and it is not responding like it should...The pump on the gas tank should be located on the top of the tank....Under the back seat....

The gas filter could partially be at fault, but have a fuel pressure test done, and also have the throttle position sensor checked. good luck.

Sounds like the fuel pump may be going out. I'd have it checked.
