1992 Honda Civic DX, 1.5ltr, 206K miles. Drives great or at lest it did till yesterday. Driving down highway for about 15 minutes and car suddenly died. Check Engine light came on is how I noticed it as well as no power.
My Troubleshooting: Checked timing belt, seems ok as there is tension and valves moving up and down when cranked over w/o valve cover on.
Replaced Ignition Control module, (AutoZone did diagnostics and said it was bad but I don't know as I will explain). This did not work, bought entire distributor which includes the coil & replaced rotor and cap. No difference. Still don't see any spark. I don't have digital diagnostic equip so I need old school techniques. Tried different wires and attaching to a new spark plug, cranked it over and tried to look for a spark. Saw nothing.
Next step was to look for fuel. Loosened the srew on top of the fuel filter, some fuel came out, but not a gush. Dont' know if the fuel pump may have gone out.
Help! What's next in my checkup. Oh, check all the fuses as well.
