Re: MY 1994 HONDA STARTS UP OK..BUT AS GAS IS FED THE
It is possible a fuel problem BUT,,,You might want to take a look inside the distributor cap because if you dont maintain the tune ups properly the dist.cap and rotor can crossfire sue to all the build-up inside,Always use a OE(from honda)cap and rotor as they last longer and always the proper fit! let me know if this helps have a good day Darrell

lost power? from engine? (take gas?) low fuel, and pump sucked air, the pumps hate that as the EFI pump is both fuel cooled and fuel lubricated, bad to run them dry ever. so what are the symptoms. starts ok? runs bad. ? elaborate the bad. in detail. we cant touch your car like a real mech, so.... takes more words than 'take gas"
If the check engine light is not on, I doubt there is much you can do. It sounds like one of the engine temp sensors or one of the other sensors. The engine temp sensor and the intake air temp sensor tell the computer what the outside air temp is and the coolant temp which allows the computer to regulate the amount of fuel going thru the injectors. Generally if one of the sensors has failed the check engine light should be on. It could be low fuel pressure too. You may have to have a shop check the sensors with a scanner and the fuel pressure with a gauge.
run the fault codes and check for an EVAP venting problem
could be the valve or the solenoid to control the valve
indicates that the fuel pump is having trouble pulling fuel against th vacuum in the tank from a vent problem
turn left, sputter, sputter, pop! sputter, sputter..............vvveeerrrooommm !? WTF? Crazy 91 Honda CRX just became a death car tryin to get through an intersection. Checked all my wires and ended up in the gas tank tryin to put the fuel pump back together. POS pump is in the left side of the tank!? So if you got a few miles on it the fuel pump screen can fall off. Turn left and the last 1/8th of a tank goes to the right leaving a 3/4 ton chevy in your girlfrends lap...well almost. I still got the CRX, the girl got droped off at the car wash cuz she smelled like poo.
Car is running rich, can be a bad fuel pressure regulator or bad MAP sensor and can even be as simple as a bad vacuum hose that is disconnected. Regardless your engine is running rich (too much gas in to the engine from the fuel injectors) causing your plugs to turn black and foul, which is also causing your engine to sputter.
Start with the simple and check all your vacuum hoses, fuel pressure regulator and MAP sensor.
Good luck and keep me posted, be glad to help you get your car running 100% again soon.

LOCATE EGR VALVE,, BELOW HOUSING, THIER ARE OPENINGS GENTLY, USING FINGER, INSERT IN OPENING, PUSHUP ON DIAGHRAM, WHEN YOU RELEASE FINGER IT SHOULD RESEAT AND SEAL,LISTEN TO ENGINE OPERATERTION FOR VARIATION TO IDLE, YOU HAVE JUST CHECKED TO MAKE SURE DIAGHRAM IS NOT BAD, NEXT CHECK VACMN TO VALVE,AND CONDITION OF HOSE.
