1991 honda civic random wont start, on the random times it wont start the yellow service engin light will come on. battery is good and the engin turns over just wont start.

I have the same problem, It seem to be a relay that doesn't engage making a clicking sound under the fuse panel near the steering wheel happens most of the time when it is hot. playing with the ignition key a few time do the trick for me. wish I had a better explanation/solution for you and myself though.

I am trying to start my 1991 civic dx. It does

I would definitely check your main relay. It is located under the left side of the dash, and is a common fail item on civics from your cars vintage. They cost about 50 bucks, but are a most likely to fail item. Unfortunately, there is not much to test on them, unless you take it loose, and tap on it a bit and see if your car starts?

1991 honda civic si starting problem

have you check the ground wire from your negative wire to battery post? check to see the battery is strong. if it doesn't turn over the engine or crank the engine mean no good ground to the cables. if the car ran fine I dont understand why the car wont crank or turn the motor over it just quit. if the battery check out strong 12 V, starter serenoid may be faulty on your starter or it may be hot and will not turn starter over.

Check to see if ALL of your ground wires were reconnected after the rebuild. Check your mass airflow sensor is functioning and is connected properly. Sometimes a simple wiring issue can be the culprit. Perhaps its not getting any air. Be sure all of the connections are clean and solid. Sometimes when removing an engine, wires can be damaged in the process" pulling them apart or corrosion or rust can create problems".A full tune up with new cap, rotor, plugs, wires, air filter, fuel filter may help as well. Run a timing light on it to be sure it is set to factory specifications.

No fire

first thing i would check would be your spark control module.Located in the distributer under the rotor.take it down to your local autoparts store for testing.have them test it three times in a row to get it to operating temp.if it passes then check your coil with a multimeter.
