Why would your 1992 Civic have trouble starting then start for a second then die?

take off the distributor cap and see if the points inside are filed down or slighty bent. if they are only slightly bent, try to straighten them w/ a pair of pliers. hope this will help. the distributor cap is the thing that your spark plug wires run to from your engine. first, there are no points in a 1992 civic distributor. Second, it's probably your main relay. if this happens more often when it is really hot in the car that's a pretty good indicator. to check, turn the key on (not to start), listen for the fuel pump to kick on, run for a few seconds, then kick off. Once you hear the fuel pump cycle the car will start, if not then you (most likely) need to replace your main relay (it's really easy to do and not very expensive). Of course, check all the fuses first! I've owned many Hondas and this is a semi-common failure, especially if the car is high mileage.

If you are reffering the the Tempature Sensor. That is located on the head pretty much underneith the distributor. Signs that your Tempature Sensor is going out or faulty are once the vehicle is at full operating tempatures & it is turned off. the vehicle will have trouble starting back up. The vehicle will only have trouble turning on when engine is warm. no problem on a cold start.

That depends on what the malfunction is. Start with checking for trouble codes.

There is no timing belt. It is a timing chain. I have 130,000 miles and have not had any trouble. It will start making noise when it is time. Unlike timing belts which will break, timing chains wear out slowly.

sometimes if the starter is going bad this will work, however, if you are having trouble starting the car it not likely the starters fault

User Avatar

Run the engine till it is warm (or when you are haviing trouble starting and check fuel pump pressure is within limits. Even a liitle (1-3lbs) low will create a hard to start scenario. If it is low it is only a matter of time until you have to replace the pump. Normally it will be harder to start when it is warm if th epump is getting weaker.

It is to try to stir up trouble for a group by inciting hatred in the larger population. Hitler did this to the Jews before the start of the second World War.

I used to have a little trick. Before you start the car, just pump your gas pedal a couple of times, then start your car. Mine used to start right up after this. I'm not sure why my car wouldn't start when cold, but it got me around!

You click on Singleplayer and start a new game. You can start with the mate challenge, after you finish that, you are able to play the second one by going to "Slough Creek" by saving, going to the menu, and starting.

Most usually you start in the second chain if you are working sc, the third chain if you are doing dc, etc. The pattern usually says where to start.

When airbags deploy on a Honda Civic the SRS system is alerted. This will not allow the car to properly start. The SRS system will need to be properly reset.

If your 1994 Honda Civic is unable to start, the problem could be a connector that is not well fitted from the transmission installation, especially if you just replaced your transmission.

Honestly think they are i have an 02 civic and my friend has a 95 civic and my key can open and start his car and vice versa.

The cost to replace a transmission on a Honda Civic depends on where the transmission is purchased, if it is new or used, and the charge of labor if any at all. Some used transmissions for a Honda Civic can start around $500. A new transmission can start around $1,700.

There can be several reasons for 2003 Ford Expedition to have trouble starting. There could be a problem with the engine control module or weak plug wires.
