1997 honda civic stuck spark plug

I just bought this car recently and when i tried to take out the plugs one of them got stuck. i didnt put too much muscle into it but i tried a bit.
im afraid the threads are crossed and i dont know anything about these engines.
what should i try to get it out?
If it is stripped what then? the plugs are about 6 inches below the top of the enine so how would i fix this problem?

My 1991 honda civic wont start. when i turn the key the engine turns over but it never actually starts to run. it smells like gas. we tried the main rely, but that didnt work either?


The cylinders are probably washed down with fuel and it doesn't have enough compression to start. You need to also check to see if it is getting ignition spark. There are several thing it may be. The quickest thing you can try is let it sit overnight and then in the morning push the gas pedal to the floor and try starting it to clear flood it if it is not starting due to being flooded and cylinders being washed down with fuel.You should pull out a spark plug and see if its wet with fuel. If it is remove all the plugs and dry them out and maybe squirt a very small amount of oil down each cylinder to help seal the rings to bring up the compression. Do not get carried away with putting oil in the cylinders so you dont hydro lock the engine.

Hi this erik, i change my spark plug wires but the car shakes alot, what can i do.


Is it the car or the engine that shakes? If its the car then you might have an abnormal wear on your tires or you have a warped rim, or possibly somthing stuck in your suspension, hopes that somewhat helps.

Wont start after it died one night


The cap should be marked for number 1. The distributor turns clockwise. The firing order is 1-3-4-2.

I put my spark plug and wires on the wrong holes need a diagram to show me how to do it is for a honda civic 1997 1.6 L


This can be a funny little problem but not so hard. #1 plug is closest to the timing cover and then 2,3,4 back to toward the transmission. With all the plug wires snapped on to the plugs and the cap ends hanging loose, label the cap ends with their corresponding hole number. Now we know that the firing order is 1-3-4-2 and the rotation is clockwise at the distributor end because hondas turn backwards. So there is only four possible combinations. Arrange the distributor cap wires in a clockwise direction: 1-3-4-2 for each four possibilities, and crank to try it. Chances are you'll hit it the second time - 50/50 odds anyway :-)

1997 Honda Civic EX power loss


start with the easy stuff. check the plugs. make sure they are not wet with oil leaking from the spark plug stem seals located on the rocker cover. Check your air filter to make sure its clean. Now for the slightly harder stuff. The spark plug wires should be changed every 80k or so. My suspect the reason for the power loss is most likely a clogged cat convert in the exhaust system. check your exhaust flow. Way to do that is to check the temp. of the exhaust before the cat and the temp. after the cat. If the Cat is plugged the temp before the catalytic converter will be abnormally higher than after the cat.

BUT if you are experiencing misfire of engine. I would go straight to replacing spark plugs and wires. Distributor cap and rotor.

Also check the charging system. make sure the alternator is charging the battery at above 13Volts. With all components on. ( radio/lights/highbeam/AC). Use a voltmeter and check at the battery positive and negative. if its not charging above 13 V replace the alternator.

good luck

My 89 honda civic has been running rough


No it has not been overheating or losing coolant at all it just has been running rough and poorly (loud) it was not smoking till he took out the old spark plug and put in the new one he said it was smoking out all that had been backed up into the cylinder due to non working spark plugs (there was oil on the spark plug)
