    1995 honda civic has difficulty starting. I have to turn the key and pump the gas a lot to get it to start. It seems to be backfiring slightly under the hood while attempting this. Once it starts, it runs well. It will restart if it doesnt sit too long, but if it does.. its the same issue.

    It has a brand new fuel pump.

    1995 Honda Civic Dx 3dr here having the same problem, I was on my way to work and as I was driving in the engine stalled and when trying to turn on again it attempts to start but with no success. I was having trouble starting periodically for about 3 months. My guess is that it is indeed a fuel issue. The spark does seem to be there for me.

I have been working on honda and acura applications for about 15 yrs,running a small import mechanic shop. If you have fuel pressure and make sure the ecu is not giving off a code. The problem is more than likley in the distributer make sure all of the wires are connected properly and if you can borrow a distributer off another car see if that works, Also there has been a recal on the 96-2000 accords for the ignition switch causing the same problem check for the same recal.

All gasoline fed engines would need two crucial systems; fuel and ignition. Since you have determined that there is fuel, you may want to check the ignition system - plugs, hi-tension wires, distributor or in some cases igniter or computer box (whichever is present).

Should sparks at the end of the plugs be present, you may want to go back to the fuel possibility and verify that fuel is coming into the carbs or into the high pressure injector pumps. Electrically, there could also be a fuse for the injector pump.

Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards.

Thank you for using FixYa.

I have a Honda civic 1.5 vtec 1995. Car cranks but won't fire, then after 3 tries at starting stops cranking. A jump start usually starts the car again and then ok for a couple of months. This is...

sounds like the distributor. over time the distributor could get debris and condensation inside it and cause it to act up here and there.

Wont start.

If it will turn over check to see if its fuel or fire. To check for fuel, spray quick start for a few seconds into intake. If it starts and stops. its fuel. Change fuel filter and check fuel pump. If it does not start its fire, Could be distributor cap, rotor, coil, spark plug wires or spark plugs. If it does not turn over it could be battery or starter. Check battrey connections, ground strap from motor to body and ground wire from battery to motor and body.

I would check the distributor function of the Civic's distributor is to engage the coil (via the firing switch) spark. no fire. I hope this helps.

95 honda civic hatchback wont start

Did you hooks the the spark plug wires right. If these are not in the right order then you will have a misfire. If enough of them are out of place then you wont have enough fire to start the engine.

There is a possibility that your timing belt has a couple of teeth missing now. When was the last time the timing belt was replaced? The reason for the fuel smell is the engine is trying to fire at the wrong time. It's trying to fire when the exhaust valve is actually opening. Replacing the belt isn't a bad job.
