Question about 1994 Honda Civic
My 94 Honda Civic was hard to start if it sat overnight. I could keep trying until finally it started. It would spit and sputter acting like it did not have gas until it seemed to get primed while running. Then once revved up and running it would be fine all day long and start everytime no problem. Now it wont get that initial start after sitting all night. Any thing you can tell me will help. I thought maybe the fuel filter might be clogged?
I think the common "ask a mech" is why most folks use fixya....$$$$$$....and hell yes they will charge u ....take advantage of u and i have a trust issue .....what i do first is check to see if u r getting fuel loosen the gas line in the motor place a towel underneath and get some one to turn the car over....if its comnig out good...u r getting proper fuel if it is spitting or very slow start with replacing fuel filter or just check it ....if u can blow through it without forcing hard its okay..if you have to blow very hard and don't feel air from other side its stopped up....now...if its getting gas and filter is good...make sure u r getting good spark...take #1 spark plug off from the plug only and get a wood or rubber handle screw driver and stick in plug wire hole then get someone to turn car over...if u see a spark then u r getting spark...if not ....well... it could be coil wire...plug wires....bad coil pack etc....start with these tasks first and THEN seek a mech...at least u can tell him/her its getting fuel...its getting spark..and the mech will realize u know something and may be less likely to take advantage of u! Good luck!

Not the fuel filter because then the car would ruin like **** all day.. you might need new spark plugs or alternor.. the alternator gets juice from you battery. your alternator needs alot of juice for a start big start up.. if it isnt that i could be something simple as a spark plug. have a mechanic check it out. they wont charge alot

Check for leaks, you may have a leaking fuel injector. or a bad fuel pressure valve, i think what happening is that, fuel sistem must be pressurized ok, but for some reason the sistem is loosing that pressure, thats why it takes many tries to start your engine, fuel sistem needs to have predeterminated pressure to dothe job.
