8 years is a fairly long time for a belt so I wouldn't take chances with it. You need to establish whether you have fuel and spark; removing a fuel line under the hood will check the first and the second you can check by removing any spark plug lead, sticking a screw driver into the the removed lead and placing it and inch or so from some grounded point of the engine. Each of these may require you turn on the ignition for some seconds and to check for spark, you will need an observer or someone to crank the engine. You should have a fat blue spark from the screwdriver shaft to whatever ground you are using.
Once you have established that both are present, then it is time to consider the crankshaft position sensor or if no spark, the coil pack.
If you have a friend 'in the business,' they will likely own a code reader/scanner which will give you some idea of what is missing.

My 1998 honda civic died when i was driving it. It cranks but dosn't start it also makes a noice at the beginning could it be the fuel pump?


How many miles are on it? Did you have the timing belt changed at 90,000 miles? Is there spark to the spark plugs? Do you have fuel pressure at the fuel rail? A broken timing belt will make the car sound alot different than normal when cranking.

My 92 honda civic is hard to start but once you get it running starts just fine runs good.... the battery is brand new and cranks just fine.


It could be as simple as a tune-up. Check the spark plugs, distributor cap, wires, throttle body and filters for age, wear, dirt build up or arcing.

I would use a pair of long nose pliers to grab a hold of them and pull them off, there are metal connectors inside the boots which snap onto the top of the spark plug.

My 1998 honda civic ex. It cranks but Engine does not start . I could not locate the fuel injectors fuse. I openned fuel line and fuel spurt out when it cranking. But I smell no gas at airfilter intake.


How many miles are on it? Have you changed timing belt? Was there any symptoms prior to non starting? Pull a spark plug see if you are getting spark. If not it is probably coilpack on distributor have it tested. Common problem I have had experienced with civics.

Starting problem with honda civic


Next things to check are fuel and spark, remove a spark plug and with the wire attached crank the motor, if you see spark in the plug then it's not a spark issue and probably a fuel problem. If there is no spark could be bad plugs or wires, or distrubitor cap. To check fuel remove injector cover and crank motor, if there is no fuel coming out then check fuel filter, fuel pump.

Good Luck
