Question about 1997 Honda Civic
Put bad gas in my car about two nights ago (bout a gallon) ran fine then started acting up. put two gallons of good gas in and still ran ****. changed the spark plugs and disconnected the battery bc the check engine light came on when i was driving. reconnected the battery and now i have no spark the fuel pump comes on but thier is no spark can u help me.
If you put bad gas and the trouble just started then, then its the bad gas that caused it. what kind of bad gas are you referring? dirty? diesel? low octane? You may have clogged the the strainers in the fuel pump(inside the tank) or the fuel filters. If its dirty gas, change immediately the fuel filter. you don't want dirty particles getting into your fuel injectors they are more expensive to replace. You may even have to evacuate and clean the bad gas you put in the gas tank.
If its bad octane but clean you may have a fouling plugs. still drain the tank off the bad gas. You won't get immediate result if just by adding good octane fuel.
