If you were to turn the ignition off when you are driving it would do the same thing. My guess is that a critical ignition wire is either shorting or coming loose when inertia exists through your left turn.

In park turn the wheel all the way to the left. Did the car die? Try wiggling the red wires connecting through the starter, battery, and such with the engine running. Also try wiggling the wires through the steering column to the ignition.

Start by cleaning your throttle body.  May need an Idle Air Control valve.

Hello,Your car probably has the 4.6 northstar engine.This (phantom stall) condition is usally caused by 1 or both of the Crankshaft position sensors.I have seen this condition quite frequently on your perticular car.I would replace both of the crank sensors and that should do the trick.you might want to take it to a repair shop due the location of the sensors (front lower part of engine near oil filter) Good luck.

this is not the problem of fluid, this is a major problem of transmission. The transmission must be detached from the engine, which you cant do by yourself. the transmission can be repaired but i dont know mechanics in your do it. otherwise you have to replace the transmission.

What is the firing order for a 1991 crx si


the firing order for your 91 crx should be 1, 3, 4 and 2. You need to identify where the rotor points to when cylinder 1 is at top dead center.
Cylinder number 1 is the one closest to the accessory belts (alternator, power steering , etc, hope this helps.

All Honda 4 cylinder engines that I have worked on have a firing order of 1342. That is the firing order on your CRX. #1 is the cylinder closest to the timing belt.

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 :)

I have a 1990 Honda CRX Si. When i drive the car with the headlights on, my gauge cluster goes crazy. Both left and right signal turn on and the hi-beam light turns on. My gas gauge goes to the very top...


Your alternator may be on it's last leg. Start the car and while the car is running, remove the negative cable from the battery. If the car dies, the alternator is no longer working. If you have a volt meter, put the meter on the battery positive and negative. You should read 13.8 - 14.2. If it doesn't show this, and reads under that, your alternator is not charging enough to keep your accessories going.
