Question about 1990 Honda Civic
I have a 91 civic. I recently changed the distributor on the engine. However last week I was arriving home and a few blocks away from home as I slowed down for a stop sign my car just stalled. I tried turning it back on but just won't start. When I turn the key to start it sounds like it about to start but doesn't. About a year ago the same thing happened and my friend who lived in town at the time simply tightened a screw in the distributor and had it up and running again. Do you think it could be the same thig again?
It is very possible that the lock down bolt, which allows adjustment of timing, has come loose. Re-set timing and tighten down bolt.
Also the rotor button screw may have fallen out allowing the button to turn. Pull the distributor cap to check.
