Question about 1991 Honda Civic
Hello i have a problem i own a Honda Civic 89-91. I was driving one day normally going up a bridge and the car just died on me, just lost all the revs slowly i would like to know what the problem is. i got home and changed the fuel filter new oil change and tuned the carb a bit and it went well for about 10miles and returned to it's old ways now every 2.5miles i lose all the power i think it is electrical like the distributer or alternator. I lose power mostly when i go up. every time i lose power i wait about 4min then it starts again what could it be? Thank You

Problem starting when parked on grade, heat, humidity,... even varies depending on how long the car have been turned off,.... sounds more like problem with "main relay" switch,... its under driver dash near fuse box,... basically solder on main relay becomes loose and you get bad connection,... easy fix is to take cover off main relay switch and resolder the joints,.... google on how to do it.
