    THE PROBLEM WAS NOT THE DISTRIBUTOR BECUASE AS I MENTIONED IT WAS REPLACED. WHAT HAPPENED WAS THE CAMSHAFT WAS TURNING THE ROTOR BUT NOT THETIMING BELT. THE SPROKET MESS UP. I HOPE IT HELPS ANYBODY, WHEN YOUR NOT GETTING FIRE CHECK THE DISTRIBUTOR, TIMINGBELT AND EVEN YOUR MAIN FUEL RELAY ON THE HONDAS. THNKS JOE

First thing i would check would be your spark control module.Located in the distributer under the rotor.take it down to your local autoparts store for testing.have them test it three times in a row to get it to operating temp.if it passes then check your coil with a multimeter.

I am trying to start my 1991 civic dx. It does


Hi:
I would definitely check your main relay. It is located under the left side of the dash, and is a common fail item on civics from your cars vintage. They cost about 50 bucks, but are a most likely to fail item. Unfortunately, there is not much to test on them, unless you take it loose, and tap on it a bit and see if your car starts?

how does the engine sound while turning over does it sound normal is the timing belt still intact. if the timing belt is still intact and the engine sounds like it don't have any compression replace the plug but before installing new plugs get a qt of oil and pour about 1 or 2 caps full of oin in each cylinder this will help build the compression and hopefully it should start if it does it will smoke a few minutes but will be fine.

91 honda civic dx. Starts, runs for a few seconds then stalls


Try pounding on the gas tank with a rubber mallet or similar tool. (careful not to dent the tank) Try starting it. If it runs, replace the fuel pump (it's nfg). I've diagnosed numerous fuel pumps this way. Remember the pump needs to be replaced, if you drive it, you don't know when it'll fail for good. Hope this helps. Please post the results.
