Question about 1984 Honda Civic

1 Answer

Just inherited a 1984 civic wagon it starts wont idle and after it stalls it wont start again without being primed. I kept it running and drove around the block and it stalled and wouldnt restart even after i primed it. Got it home and checked and its not getting any spark. I let it set for 30 minutes and it started again. So im thinking maybe a loose or bad ground strap. Does anyone know how many ground straps and where they are

I assume its a carb motor. if so i would first check the vacuum box for broken or loose lines, if the problem isnt there i would look to see if there is a loose wire by your thermostat. if theres a wire ground it to the thermostat bolt. these have both worked when the same thing happened to me.

Starts but stalls right away


Have you checked your fuel pressure? Could be the fuel pressure regulator. Hard to say without a year and model of the jeep.

Check the battery cables. I had the same issues with my 96 tacoma, The battery cable connection at the battery can be cranked down but still be loose. Hard to explain, doesn't make sense, but just check it out.

1984 Toyota tercel wagon


Although this isn"t a proper fix, and may affect emissions, I ran accross this problem on a friend's 87 2wd wagon.

There is a dashpot that controls a lever the Idle set screw is on, I am guessing it is a decel valve that closes butterfly when coasting in gear. I never looked at a manual to figure out what controls the vacuum valve that is on the passenger side of the engine compartment, but if you disconect the vacuum line and plug it that lever will not back off and idle will remain where you set it with the adjustment screw.

Make sure the engine is warmed up and not on a fast idle cam before adjusting idle.

The car is a 5 speed, I not sure if automatic cars are the same.

The car idles fine now and still run's great and gets 37+ MPG with 240000 miles!

If you want to fix it properly you would have to diagnose why that dashpot is being actuated at idle
