Question about Honda Civic

1 Answer

I have a 1995 honda civic dx 1.5. One day i was driving and when I was going up a hill the car lost all its power and started running rough. It starts up ok but the enginge shakes real bad and has no power. almost like its not running off all the cylinders but each cylinder is firing fine. i replaced the spark plugs, the spark plug wires, the roter in the destributar cap, and the destributar cap. any ideas what it could be?

Try doing a fuel injector check. do this by pulling each of the cables out one at a time while the car is running. pull out the first one, if the car starts to shake even more, or turn off, then the fuel injector is good. replace the spark plug cable. repeat the steps for the rest. if the car remains does the same thing, as in starts to shake more or turn off, then the problem exists elsewhere. but, if you remove one of the spark plug cables, and the car remains the same, then you found your bad fuel injector. the only other thing that occurs to me is changing the fuel filter. it could be that the fuel filter is clogged, and when you started going up hill, the fuel pump simply couldnt push the fuel up. but the first one sounds more logical. it either sounds like it could be what you said, about one of the cylinders not working, or a loss of pressure somewhere, which would be fuel, or air. usually air is alot less likely to cause problems like this than fuel. hope this helps, goodluck.

I have a 1995 Honda Civic. When driving up hills


Check spark plugs and all related cables, fuel hoses, fuel filter (change if black but make sure lines and fuel tank are clean first), and air filter. If blank spots are experienced when power is lost completely then firing of spark plugs may be the issue. Possibly also related to insufficient fuel reaching combustion chamber. Available for more consulation after you do through the above recommended basic checks.

Loss of power


If you can feel power loss, from the first gear specially driving uphill. Yes it is your clutch.
