Question about 1992 Honda Civic

1 Answer

Car swings idly

My car was driving perfect the other day, I turned it off and when Iwent to start it again all it did was swing idly. the fuel pumpcan be heard engaging, i also have all the fuses inside the car and inthe engine bay checked. they are all perfect and there is powergoing to each fuse holder. i then checked for a spark in eachcylinder with a new plug while the car was being swung over. there was then no spark in any cylinder. i then checked the coilpack for cracks and damage but there was none. i opened up thecover and checked the contact points and rotor. all were perfect.Have you any idea what could be wrong with it? it is a 1992 dohc vtech sir.

Not knowing what vehicle, It may be a bad fuel pump, fuel filter, fuel pressure regulator. Measure the fuel pressure at the connection between supply line and fuel rail. Since you are a DIY, I highly recommend you invest in a Repair manual. Auto parts stores may have, filepeep.com may have, or manualslib.com

Where do I find the fuel filter on a 96 Barina Swing


Sounds more like a failing electrical part. Could be fuel or ignition. Catch it when it won't start up, check for spark, check for fuel pressure. The filter is probably on the frame rail underneath car, where fuel line is routed from the tank up to the engine.

Car swings but does not start


Check for a leak in the air intake. The reason why I said this is because a leaking air intake causes a low idle condition if its after the MAF sensor. If the leak is bad enough the car wont even start. Some cars equiped with MAP sensor that has malfunctioned can also cause a no start condition.
