I think you have a fuel pump problem this is what they do when they fail, intermittant cranks no start.

I have a 93 honda civic it starts when it wants. changed start, battery, distributor, spark plugs & wires. popping the clutch sometime works and sometimes it doesnt.. please help

Test fuel pressure with gauge (free loan-a-tool from many parts stores). When it won't start might try small shot of starter fluid. If it starts then it is likely fuel system issue, if not check spark.

My car likes to start in the. Morning but not in the afternoon and especially not when it's hot . I have changed my spark plugs and my fuel lines and it still does it what could it be .

Most Honda cars have a problem with the fuel pump relay where it works cold but not hot.
You need to know if you are lacking spark to the plugs or fuel pressure when it fails to start. If fuel pressure is the problem, check the relay.

My 91 honda civic has a problem starting sometimes. It starts in the morning. Sometimes it will not start on a hot day and it will just shut off while driving occaisionally. Often it must cool off before...

It will be the main relay. It is a massive fuse under the coin tray. The joints become dry and need re-soldered. A very common problem on these cars.

The clunk is the starter engaging the flywheel, check that it is properly seated, a bolt might have come loose.
