I have a 1991 honda civic 1.5L and it stopped on the highway. It's in my garage and I have checked the plugs which give good fire, there doesn't seem to be an issue with the gs pump as there's gas in the chambers. I think it's the timing belt as when it cranks it has a sort of a wheezing sound and shudders but doesn't fire up. How do ùi check to see if the timing belt needs replacement and how do I remove front cover? Must I remove the valve cover to allow the top portion of front cover to be freed from the retaining lip on valve cover?
I have broken the timing belt in two of these, one time at over 6000 RPM. They do not bend the valves as long as the head has not been cut. That wheezing noies is compression blowing by partially open intake valves. You need to remove the valve cover and the timing cover. Please replace the water pump at the same time. Camieng

howdie is it std or auto do you have lights horn do you hear a clicking noise if so probly your battery is low or bad altenator problem the brake light comes on it means the brakes are applied release them
High CO should cancell Nox, catalytic is finished so youll need a catalytic.you cant have those 2 high together.Oil light came on,when the oil light comes on it means that the oil pressure is too low and not enough pressure to lubicate moving parts, checking the dip stick you only check the volume, your oil light checks the pressure.Check the oil again is it silverish,or rich black,and upon start up is there a thud noise? if yes the crank shaft and engine is locking up. So how much ? for the year . Salvage yard , dont rebuild, and here what you need to price a catalytic convertor, and a used engine, I hope this helped
Have you changed the fuel filter? If your battery has power in it it is not the alternator. If the alternator is not charging the engine will become slugish as the battery power nears zero and the light will become dimmer and dimmer until they go out.
I think I would suspect the fuel injectors, especially since that is the code you are getting. Fuel injectors clog up, get dirty, stop working the way they should. They can be cleaned (you can remove them and send them to a company that cleans them and makes them like new, or, they can be cleaned in the car by some garages, or, you can get a can of Sea Foam spray and spray it into your throttle housing several times to try to do some cleaning that way, or, you can dump a can of Sea Foam (non-spray) into your gas tank and run it with the fuel through your injectors). You should probably check when you first start the car to see if you are getting any leakage from one or another injector (one or another may look moist or wet if the seals are leaking). You can also do the long screwdriver test (hold the bit of the screwdriver against each injector in turn and listen with your ear against the other end to see if each is clicking regularly). I would try the Sea Foam first.
I hope this is helpful in getting you started on a fix.
