    We have change the spark plugs. It started to work however died at every red light. After the motor was off, cause he was at work, after starting it back up it will not start. The manual said something about changing the spark plug cap? does that make sense? or anyone have any idea?

Hopefully that's the only problem with it usually when they break its very expensive to fix. Very simple fix for 37$ I replaced mine and I'm not no mechanic but I'm pretty good with a wrench. Only thing I don't mess with is electrical. Good luck.

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

    I've owened two HONDAs that have had starting problems. The fix is really easy - remove the 12V main relay and resolder all the joints. Don't waste your money on replacing fuel pumps. THe 12 v main relay controls the fuel pump when you start your car.

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.

1991 honda civic si starting problem


have you check the ground wire from your negative wire to battery post? check to see the battery is strong. if it doesn't turn over the engine or crank the engine mean no good ground to the cables. if the car ran fine I dont understand why the car wont crank or turn the motor over it just quit. if the battery check out strong 12 V, starter serenoid may be faulty on your starter or it may be hot and will not turn starter over.

1983 honda civic wont start now


hi have you checked the leads from battery to starter are secure ? also important that the negative earth lead from battery to the engine is also secure and in good condition on the starter you should have main cable from battery and a thinner cable both connected to solenoid on one terminal ? then a thin wire to a small push on terminal? this wire is the key start wire which energises the slenoid/starter
