Hi!!!

It could be your fuel pump. Have you had the fuel pump pressure checked?? Also, check your EGR system and recheck vacuum hoses carefully for cracks and loose fittings (try pulling the hose off to test tightness. Replace fuel filter if you haven't done so.

Keep me posted.

    IAC (intake Air Control) selenoid is the one that controls the Idle of the engine.
    Remove and clean the IAC selenoid located on the intake manifold. Use a clean rag wet with fuel injector cleaner and clean selenoid tip then, wrap rag in a pen or pencil and clean selenoid housing, specially the deep end, where selenoid tip seats. Be careful not to scratch selenoid housing walls and do not spray fuel injector cleaner directly into housing or selenoid body.

    Make sure the TPS (Trottle Position Sensor) is not sticking, there are two located on both sides of the Trottle Body.

    Good Luck!! Keep me posted!!

A: It could be a distributor pick up coil. If you have a multimeter, unplug the electrical connector from the distributor (should only be 2 wires) and check the ohms when cranking the engine (when you have the no-start condition). If you don't get any readings at all (i.e. the needle stays at infinity) you have a bad pickup coil. This problem will give the same appearence as a no-fuel situation, and will really act up when it is hot. B. It could also be a faulty fuel relay. This will give you problems when the interior of the car is hot. should be located on the wall of the car near the drivers foot well. behind the hood release.

91 honda civic dx. Starts, runs for a few seconds then stalls


Try pounding on the gas tank with a rubber mallet or similar tool. (careful not to dent the tank) Try starting it. If it runs, replace the fuel pump (it's nfg). I've diagnosed numerous fuel pumps this way. Remember the pump needs to be replaced, if you drive it, you don't know when it'll fail for good. Hope this helps. Please post the results.
