Question about 1993 Honda Civic 4 Door
Are you saying the engine is difficult to crank, or start ?
If it cranks ok but takes a long time to start, the starter is not the problem. You would look at ignition or fuel.

IT SOUNDS LIKE A FUEL PUMP OR A IGNITION PROBLEM A INDICATION OF A IGNITION PROBLEM IS THE TACHOMETER SMETIMES WILL START TO BOUNCE UP AND DOWN. CHECK FOR SPARK WHEN IT DIES IF THERE IS NO SPARK THAN IT IS A IGNITION PROBLEM. TO CHECK THE FUEL PUMP TURN THE KEY OFF THEN TURN FORWARDTO THE ACC POSIION AND LISTEN FOR THE FUEL PUMP TO HUMM IT WILL ONY HUMM FOR 5-10 SECONDS EACH TIME TOU DO THIS. THE REASON IT WORKS INTERMITANTLY IS BECAUSE THEY ARE BOTH ELECTRONIC PARTS AND WHEN THEY WARM UP THEY FRITZ OUT LET ME KNOW WHAT HAPPENS AND GOOD LUCK

You may have a thermostat that is starting to fail. It is probably sticking. If you have a termperature gauge see if the termperature is low at the same time it blows cold air or if you can catch it when it's blowing cold air carefully check the temperature of your radiator hoses at the same time.

Honda engines (D series imparticularly) run quite smokey on start up. For some reason condensation builds in the exhaust once it has been left (this is assuming the smoke is clearish/white) Occasionally, if it is blue smoke, you might have a leaky oil seal (typically the crank position sensor), but it's no biggy as it's only a few mls of oil per week.
There's no such thing as a tune up. Honda's are controlled by their ECU. As long as your air filter is cleaned regularly, and especially having regular oil changes 6,000miles, it should run +250k miles.
