I have a 94 honda civic DX. I was driving pretty low on gas and the car cut out. The power stayed on but the engine did not I had it towed home. Couldnt get it started. I HAVE RESOLDER THE EFI RELAY and can hear it powering the fuel pump already alot of people have told me to do that. I have spark, I did a compression check, checked the fuel regulator and filter. Changed the fuel pump because eveyone I know said it was most likely that. Checked the injectors and they all spray gas like normal. Pulled out all the spark plugs cleaned them put them back in. Checked the efi relay. The car will crank but not fire at all. Checked all fuses. Checked the timing and timing belt. The only thing is the ecu when I go under the glove box and pull out the wire and hook a jumper to it to make my engine light blink with the code the engine light stays on solid and the srs light blinks non stop so theres either no code or something maybe its the whole ecu.

If you have fuel then we turn down the spark side of the fork. The spark. Even though you see the spark at the plugs I would bet that it is being delivered at the wrong time. Now what causes this? There are a couple of different sensor. One is usually located in the distributor and is the camshaft position sensor. The other is the crankshaft position sensor. These sensors can behave in generally 3 ways. 1. Normal 2. Not at all so no spark is allowed or 3. Work but are reported the wrong information to the computer and thus the timing of the spark is wrong.

Thank you bruce for answering fast. I have a question you said the sensors can be telling it when to fire wrong. Would that make the car not want to start at all? Cuz thats what mine is doing just cranking but not starting. And two how do I go about checking or replacing each one of those three sensors. Thank you.

Yes it can very well cause the car to not start. Sometimes, you might get a fire that makes it seem like it wants to start but there is no way.

The crankshaft sensor has two with it and as I have said the camshaft is usually in the distributor. Now when it comes to testing them I would refer you to a maintenance manual.
