A couple things could be the issue: 1. check battery terminals and cables, look for green oxidation on the Neg and Pos cable(s) and check where the cables connect to the battery (normally white caked on clump) clean with baking soda and water combo, be careful use gloves and goggles. once the post and connectors are clean, apply a little vaseline to both terminals. 2. have battery checked out to make sure it is fully charged (autozone or local auto parts store should be able to do this for free) 3. check starter connections (I had a similar problem and one wire was not secure, this fixed it for me). 4. check fuses and relays, in addition to the cable, I needed a fuse that limits the voltage coming into the fuse box. 5. starter solenoid, this could need replacing, it is not engaging the starter to crank the engine. Good Luck and I hope one of these can solve your issue!

96 Honda Civic making a popping noise when I release the clutch and third gear


Reasons for popping noise:
Popping noise could occur due to the malfunction in the ignition system, leaky valves, weak cylinder compression, carbon accumulation in the combustion chamber or lean fuel.
1. Ignition system malfunction (Misfire).
Check:
- The ignition timing.
- Spark plug gaps.
- Use colder type spark plugs.
- Ignition module and ignition coil.
- Distributor cap and rotor.
- Spark plug high tension cords.
2. Cylinder compression:
- Check valves clearance.
- Perform cylinder compression test.
3. Fuel system (For lean state).
- Check fuel filter for clogged.
- Check fuel injectors.
- Check fuel pump pressure.
- Check fuel regulator.

I have a 97 civic I am not getting fuel or spark


Most likely Camshaft sensor, located in distributor, is just the right age for that problem.

Wont start


Locate your fuel filter, it's underneath follow the fuel line from the tank, disconnect the line coming from the tank at the filter. Turn the ignition on(no need to crank it). If fuel comes out? Your fuel pump is good. Reconnect the line, and disconnect the line on the other side of the filter. Turn the ignition on, if you don't get fuel? Then you have a bad filter. If you DO have fuel? Check for fuel at the fuel bar manifold going into the injectors. It will look like a tire fill valve. Also check the ignition coil make sure you are getting power to the distributor. I hope this helps you.

I have a 1994 honda civic dx that wont start


It seems your ignition switch has burned out - verifying good starter operation was an important component in furthering your diagnosis effort. The ignition switch is really a relay separate from the ignition key cylinder - when it fails to send battery voltage to the starter motor, you'll have the no-start condition described.
See the Honda Ignition switch replacement illustration below.

Just for completeness' sake, here's the generic response of a mechanic to a vehicle's no-start condition:

Priority Action Part Type Cause
1 Inspect Ignition Switch - Improperly Connected or Faulty Ignition Switch.
2 Inspect Battery - Battery Discharged or Faulty.
3 Inspect Battery Cable - Coroded, Broken, Shorted or Poorly Connected Battery Cable.
4 Inspect Solenoid - Starter Solenoid Faulty.
5 Inspect Starter - Starter Motor Faulty.
6 Inspect Wireset - Worn or Damaged Spark Plug Wires.
7 Inspect Ignition Coil - Faulty Ignition Coil.
8 Inspect Distributor Cap - Loose, Cracked or Worn Distributor Cap.
9 Inspect Spark Plug - Incorrectly Gapped or Fouled Spark Plug(s).
10 Inspect Distributor Rotor - Loose, Cracked or Worn Distributor Rotor.
11 Inspect Fuel Tank - Fuel Tank Empty.
12 Inspect Carburetor - Worn, Faulty or Damaged Carburetor.
13 Inspect Fuel Pump - Faulty Fuel Pump.
14 Inspect Choke - Stuck or Improperly Functioning Choke.
15 Inspect Fuel Filter - Clogged or Dirty Fuel Filter.
16 Inspect Fuel Pump Relay - Faulty Fuel Pump Relay.
17 Inspect Fuel Injector Pressure Regulator - Faulty Fuel Injector Pressure Regulator.
18 Inspect Fuel Pump - Low Fuel Pressure.
19 Inspect Engine Control Computer - Incorrect Operating Information Being Delivered and Sent From The EEC.
20 Inspect Fuel Pump Strainer - Clogged or Dirty Fuel Pump Strainer.

Did you have the computer reflashed for the new injectors? If not, you have to do so. I don't know how much bigger than stock your new fuel injectors are but if it's more than just a little bigger, and you don't reprogram the computer, your mixture is going to be way too rich and you'll be stumbling. Have the ECU reprogrammed to properly control the injectors - many modifications don't affect, or are not affected by, the ECU, but injectors aren't on that list. If you did reprogram it, it may be simply because larger injectors aren't as precise when flowing slowly or at small duty cycles. There's also the chance that one or more are leaking slightly although that's not as common.

My 1998 honda civic ex wont start, I have tried changing the fuel filter, distributor cap and rotor, and air filter. It cranks but wont fire up... a couple days ago the car stopped running while my dad...


Make sure your distruibutor rotor in turning while cranking engine, if it is timing belt ok, more then likely your not getting spark to spark plugs check your ignition coil, but more then likely it's going to be your ignition module.

Car wont start i have a new battery, new spark plugs and wires


It need to have fuel and sparks to start.
Have you check to see if there is spark after all new parts?
If there is spark, then check if it has fuel.

To check spark, hold 1 spark plug touching engine chasis while cranking, if there is no spark then problem with the coils or ignition module.
To check fuel, after cranking several times but no firing, take out a spark plug to see if it wet.
If it is dry then no fuel. For this, problem could be following in order:
-Fuel filter
-Fuel pump
-Fuel pressure regulator
- Fuel injectors
- Fuel injector module.
Need to go through troubleshooting step by step before changing the parts to correct a problem. Good luck in finding a good mechanic to test before spending money in costly partts replacement.
