Easiest way to check for a broken timing belt is to look into the oil fill hole on valve cover and have someone crank engine. see if you can see the cam move. if not moving, timing belt is broken. if it is moving it is not broken but still may be off a tooth or more. at that point you will need to remove timing covers and check timing marks. these cars are very simple and you can learn alot by spending 20 bucks on a basic haynes type repair manual.

My honda crx is starting over but won't idol properly and will stay on for a few seconds before dying. i checked to make sure gas is getting to the engine and it is.


I have same car 1989 honda crx, what worked for car was I took the Idle Air Control Valve ( IACV ) off and cleaned it with carb cleaner. What you will need is a 12mm socket and only has two screws, and pliers to take off two small hoses attached to it.. And most important carb cleaner to clean the inside of IAVC. Plus you can also search for this on the Internet ...1989 honda crx Idle Surges! Hope this helps...

My 1989 Honda crx si surges on the rpms. It will go from about 1800- 900 rpms and back again. What's wrong?


It's called hunting. You need to clean out the EAVC unit in the intake manifold. Take off the air filter and housing, run carb cleaner through the intake for 20 minutes or so.

Next bleed the radiator by taking the rad cap off and start the car, let the fan kick in twice (about 20 mins again) and the air bubbles will have been forced out.

Take the car for a spin and the vote for me when it's fixed :)

1990 crx base model honda civic want start


I would suggest an ignition module. If it is a rough idle at startup I would check the throttle position sensor. You can check that by starting the car and unplugging the TPS. If the car runs differently then chances are it is working fine.

1989 honda crx 1.5 automatic won't start. Replaced igniter, distributor, rotor plugs,wires,engine turns but will not start


Check the timing belt or check the most common item, the Main Relay. It controls spark and fuel.

Wiring faulty, sensor not connected or mismatch, the ECU will not operate normally until it get all required input from the various sensor.

1989 Honda CRX won't start after a short trip.


Easy one.This is a common problem on 88-91 Civics and CRX's.Check your main relay under the drivers side dash.It provides power to the ECU,fuel pump,and injectors.Its a squarish box with a single plug going into it held on by one 10 mm bolt.The solder joints break down over time and cause the condition you're having.You can pry off the plastic cover and resolder the joints if you are handy with a soldering iron,or just ask for a main relay at Autozone,etc.

Starter cranks doesn't start quick clicking & ECU flashes quickly


It sound like you have a bad starter solenoid.
It clicks like crazy and will not engage the starter if it is bad or going out!
