Hi,

Heard of similar problems specially with 1/4 tank or less. Normal components/things to check initially would be:

  1. fuel pump;
  2. fuel filter;
  3. fuel pressure regulator; and/or
  4. presence of sand, dirt foreign materials in the fuel lines.
Corrective measure of course would require testing which has failed/weakened/ and replacing and cleaning.

A temporary work around would be to turn the ignition switch to on but not crank. This is to allow the fuel pump to push more fuel into the system and prime it. After about 5-10 seconds, then start the car.

Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards.

Thank you for using FixYa.

92 Honda Civic after short run fails to start


The two most common things are the pgmfi (fuel injection) relay, and the distributors. Replace the relay first, not too expensive and a new one is peace of mind, if that doesn't fix it, my money would be on the distributor. The relay is a rectangular (1"x1"x2") box bolted way up under the drivers side dashboard. It will say "Mitsuba" on it.
