Question about 1998 Honda Civic

1 Answer

My 1998 Honda civic has hardy any power. I just replaced the spark plugs and fuel pump but the problem has only progressed. It takes forever to get up to speed. I am thinking either a vacuum leak or a timing problem. What do you think?

How do I check for spark on a 2005 Honda civic


a timing light will tell you if you have spark and checking the pressure regulater on fuel rail will tell you if you have fuel pressure

1998 honda civic. fuel pump when key is turned on registers 10. volts then immediately drops to zero. did a tune up the day before. cap,rotor,plugs,oil and filter. drove 15-20 miles then died. checked fuel...


You should have close to 12 volts and then it drops to 0. That is the ecu priming the fuel system. Once you start yu should have 12v constant to the same wire. If your fuel pump is functioning ok, scan ur ecu for trouble codes. If there are no codes look into your coil and your icm in the distributor. Very commo for failure. Once the car dies, remove any spark plug wire on the plug side and put a plug into the end of it. Put the electrode of the plug close to a bolt on the valve cover and get someone to start the car, see if the plug is sparking. If it is you have a problem with fuel delivery, may not have injection pulse. You may also have a main relay failure

My 1998 honda civic died when i was driving it. It cranks but dosn't start it also makes a noice at the beginning could it be the fuel pump?


How many miles are on it? Did you have the timing belt changed at 90,000 miles? Is there spark to the spark plugs? Do you have fuel pressure at the fuel rail? A broken timing belt will make the car sound alot different than normal when cranking.

Starting problem with honda civic


Next things to check are fuel and spark, remove a spark plug and with the wire attached crank the motor, if you see spark in the plug then it's not a spark issue and probably a fuel problem. If there is no spark could be bad plugs or wires, or distrubitor cap. To check fuel remove injector cover and crank motor, if there is no fuel coming out then check fuel filter, fuel pump.

Good Luck
