Question about 1991 Honda Civic

2 Answers

The engine will not turn over at all

I have a 91 civic si hatchback, a couple months ago i was working on it and blew one of the fuses that allowed the car to start. i wasn't aware that it was a fuse that kept it from running and it has been sitting for about 4 months, about 2 weeks ago i replaced the fuse and tried to start it. the car started and then i turned it off. it has not been able to turn over at all sense. The car is getting power to it, i just cannot figure out why it won't turn over. Is it the starter? Please help!

First you have to check if the starter makes any clicking noise.
Check if the starter turn makes any turning noise, and then check the battery.
Check the earth connection from the battery to the chasis.
Check the connection from the battery to the starter.

If the starter doesnt make any noise that means theres no power coming in from the switch that will turn on the solenoid.
If the solenoid is damaged that means the starter motor will never work.
If the starter makes the clicking noise when you turn on the ignition switch and it still doesnt turn, that will tell you that you will need to overhaul the starter, its a starter problem.
You will need to buy a second hand or overhaul the starter.

Possibly could be the starter. About the only this I can tell you to try would be to tap on the starter wile someone else is trying to start it. If if cranks, you will need a starter. This is the easyist way to check it without a machine.

I don't believe you do. You may have to take several of the clips or screws out, that also help to hold the bumper cover on , but that should be it

You will need something to lift the engine so that you can take the pressure off of the mount. It sounds like your fuel pump may be wearing out and it is not responding like it should...The pump on the gas tank should be located on the top of the tank....Under the back seat....

91 four door civic distributor problem doubt.


It is very possible that the lock down bolt, which allows adjustment of timing, has come loose. Re-set timing and tighten down bolt.
Also the rotor button screw may have fallen out allowing the button to turn. Pull the distributor cap to check.

My check engine want come on at all do u know why


That check engine light should come on, as soon as you turn the key on, then when you start the car, it should go out, my guess is, either someone has removed the lamp, or it's burned out.

1991 honda civic si starting problem


have you check the ground wire from your negative wire to battery post? check to see the battery is strong. if it doesn't turn over the engine or crank the engine mean no good ground to the cables. if the car ran fine I dont understand why the car wont crank or turn the motor over it just quit. if the battery check out strong 12 V, starter serenoid may be faulty on your starter or it may be hot and will not turn starter over.

I have a 91' honda civic hatchback and it starts idle surging.


Check and make sure your coolant level is up. If it's up, your idle air control valve is faulty or your cold start solenoid isn't working anymore. Both are activated by the engine water temp.
