1992 Honda Civic 4 cyl Front Wheel Drive Manual

i have a 92 civic that until two days ago ran great. While driving my engine cut off no noises or rattles occurred, but since I drive a stick I just popped my clutch to start it but after about five seconds it cut off again. I had my alternator, battery, plugs, wires, starter and distributor checked out and everything is fine with all of them, but I cant get my flywheel to rotate. Is it possible that maybe a bolt or something came loose from aronund the flywheel and is jamming it up? When I try to start the car it just clicks, like its a starter problem. But I can hear the bendex trying to actuate the flywheel. We can also roll start it but it dies seconds after it starts. Any advice?

Hi dsmithtattoo,

Are you able to keep the engine running if you feather the accelerator pedal?

Is there any abnormal noise when engine is running?

Did you check the coolant level in radiator?
Did you check the oil level?

Yes all fluids are good, perfect oil level and coolant in radiator. As long as it has a little momentum when pushed it will turnover, but will not continue to run. Not idle or if you feather the gas. Just the same old click when I try to start it.

There is a possibility of 2 problems and one of it is the starting circuit. Possible causes are :
1. Battery.
2. Starter.

Remove the spark plugs and test if you are able to crank the engine easier.

Manually crank the engine at the pulley and test if it is easy to turn.

I had them both tested, and im using the battery in my other car at the moment so I know its good. Plugs and wires were just bought a week ago.

You are not able to crank the engine, The spark plug have nothing to do with it. What I want you to do is to remove the spark plugs and try cranking the engine. This would reduce the compression and make cranking easier and if engine still does not crank, either the starter is bad or the engine is seized.
