RJ Cubed, does the Check Engine Light come on for 2 seconds and then go out, when the ignition switch is turned to ON (Position II)?

yes, just the usual check engine light, then go out after 2 seconds . . .

Focus on the distributor. Replacing the Ignition Control Module (ICM) and coil, located inside the distributor, should solve the problem. Apply silicone heat transfer compound to the back of the new ICM. This is the ideal time to replace the rotor and distributor cap, if they have not been changed in 60,000 miles.

yes, i checked my ICM and i don't find anything wrong with it, however every time i start my car, i checked my spark plugs and it becomes flooded, i have new spark plugs and i don't know why, checked some mechanics they cant find whats wrong, other say its my ECU injecting too much gas on start up . . .

Your ECM is fine. I already gave you the answer to your problem--those other guys are way off base. It's a simple problem to diagnose and solve. Put me to the test.

How did you check your ICM?
If you don't fix the problem with your distributor, your Civic will never run properly again!
