There is a long list of possibilities- including the obvious plugs and wires. Then there is the coil, main relay, crank sensor, and the top dead center sensor (which is under the cam - I am told). Put a bag of ice on the main relay first. Apparently these things lose connectivity when they get hot.

Engine died while driving, no spark, replaced coil, now starts, idles, runs well at low rpm, but misfires when accelerating. No check engine costs thrown. What should I check next.


Change your ignition module. The distributor is a weak point of the Honda, I will always change out the whole thing than just try the coil.

My 1998 honda civic died when i was driving it. It cranks but dosn't start it also makes a noice at the beginning could it be the fuel pump?


How many miles are on it? Did you have the timing belt changed at 90,000 miles? Is there spark to the spark plugs? Do you have fuel pressure at the fuel rail? A broken timing belt will make the car sound alot different than normal when cranking.

Honda accord ex 2001 check engine light suddenly came on, car started to idle roughly


If it's running rough, chances are that it's misfiring. If the Check Engine light is flashing/blinking, it is definitely misfiring.
If that's the case, drive it as little as possible... Or straight to the mechanic because the more you drive it while it's misfiring, the higher the chance is of you ruining your catalytic converter.

Check your spark plugs. or your distributer., You may have a fouled plug or faulty/worn cap and rotor. The spark plug wires too can cause probs.

1994 honda civic ex


yes indeed number one see if there is any spark, if no spark look at your distributor roter first, i suggest you replace this as well if you haven't already.. you can pick them up at any auto shop for like less than 10 bucks. if it is a second hand distributor that has been sitting in a junk yard for months, chances are one of the wires are corroded or something.. get a new one if so they are only like 30 bucks and i think you get a discount if you give them your old one for the core.
