Try doing a pressure test on the cooling system or try replacing coolant temp sensor. its on the side of the head under distributor, very inexpensive

You need a new thermostat if you haven't replaced it lately.
They go bad after a while and its very possible that its broken because its tendency when broken is to not be able to control how much to cool the engine and how hot to keep it.

Turned car off...sounded like it's trying to start w/o keys


This is called run on,or dieseling ,there maybe a timing problem,or the vehicle is running to hot,the temperature is to high,it may not be cooling good,check the temp of the engine,if it is too hot,then the cooling fan may not be working,or thermostat maybe staying closed.If the vehicles throttle is staying open to much,this could be the problem also.

No start sometimes..


is engine cranking over or just nothing? if dash lights are on but nothing out to starter ect. double check electrical portion of ignition switch(when looking at back side of switch assy, where wiring feeds in look carefully to see if any of the solder joints have gotten hot and fell off)

1990 crx base model honda civic want start


I would suggest an ignition module. If it is a rough idle at startup I would check the throttle position sensor. You can check that by starting the car and unplugging the TPS. If the car runs differently then chances are it is working fine.

First check the timing belt. Open the oil cap and have someone crank it while you look inside and see if the camshaft is moving.
