Is it throwing any kind of check engine light? if so, check under the passenger side carpet. count the blinks.

a long blink=10
a short blink=1

____ ____ ____ _ would equal 31

then google the code you get. ex: "honda crx code 31"

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.

I have a 1986 honda crx and i just replaced the thermostat and now it trys to turn over but wont start back up


Check your battery connections, and make sure the battery is well charged. The thermostat will not keep a car from starting, weather it was installed correctly or not. Did you remore the distributor cap, plug wires , or some other electrical connections during your work? I'm thinking this is an electrical problem. Lastly, the battery cables could be old and corroded. working in the engine compartment may have moved them around enough for them to fail.

My 1990 honda crx clutch is very hard, after i changed it.. i have a crx transmission and 1999 civic engine. should i have bought the clutch for the transmission or the engine?


Generally that stiffness is due to a failed clutch cover (engine side). the pressure fingers inside lose their ability to compress and throw out sufficiently. I have had mixed results with aftermarket pressure plates as many are stiff right out of the carton. If you can afford,use honda oem parts for best results and dont forget to include the bearing

Starting in hot weather


Turns out that Hondas are notorious for having starting problems during the summer (sometimes it also happens when you just run them for a short while). I have a 1990 honda civic lx and was having starting problems and noticed that it was mostly during hot days. I got my starter rebuilt but the problem continued. Also I noticed that my car was flashing CODE 16.
The flashing code, together with the starting problems, points to a problem with the MAIN RELAY.
Turn the ignition on and check for codes, pull the carpet back on the passenger side floor and look for the flashing LED, count the flashes--that'll be the code (there's a short pause inbetween codes).
The Main Relay is located under the dash on the driver side, usually on the left hand side, can be up against the left wall, it's a small black unit with a plug. You need to unscrew it from its mounting bracket first. Change the main relay and it should solve your summertime starting problem.
