Question about 1992 Honda Civic

92 Civic suddenly dies and won't restart

The Civic died without warning and will not restart. It cranks but does not fire. We checked the spark plugs and they are not firing on start up. We removed the distributor cap and the rotor inside turns freely as we attempt to start it. There was a little oil in the bottom of the cap. We completely cleaned out the distributor and dried it out. The car still won't start 24 hours later. Any help troubleshooting this problem is appreciated. Thanks.

Check your spark control module inside the distributor.You can take it out and then to you local parts store to have it tested.have them test it three times to make sure it gets to operating temp.if this does not help please let me know and we will go from there.thanks for using fixya

Truck fires really well but wont start, seems like no fuel


Please define "fire power". Is this just the power from the battery swinging the engine, or did you check if there is a healthy spark on the plug wires? If an engine dies without warning, the chances are very good it is the crank angle sensor in which case there will not be any spark on the wires even though the starter will swing the engine quite lustily without starting.

I'd pull the timing belt cover and check the engine timing and belt condition. It could've slipped that badly if the camshaft pulley slipped past the pin. The thing that concerns me is not getting compression - it sounds like the top end is out of time with the crank - venting compression.

If by 'no fire' you mean no spark, check all of your fuses, and have the ignition module (located under the coil packs) checked. Autozone can usually check the ignition module for free. If it has spark, it could also be the fuel pump going out.

305 vortec engine and has no fire need to know where to start, how to check crank sensor, or what else i need to check


if it died all of a sudden no warning, replace the ingition moduel located in the distrubitor. These are common to go out without warning and would cause no spark. It's like a $30 part and just simple tools needed to replace. If it went out over time let me know and I'll tell you what else to check.

2000 Quest, cranks but wont start. What possible causes are there or what and how do I check next? Plugs are wet w/fuel. It died suddenly while driving, no spuddering.


check your distributor. Your distributor send electricity to your spark plugs, and the car is not going to fire up without a spark from the spark plug, but it will crank. i would bring it to your nearest garage.

Hope this helps

cheers

you may have a faulty crank position sensor shutting the spark off. this will throw a code into the computer though my suggestion would be to have the ecm read for codes.
