89 civic randomly dies... hard to restart. Intermittent problem
Asked Nov 15, 2006, 07:42 PM
I have an 89 civic 1.5L 4door manual.
It will randomly die while driving - doesn't matter if engine is at 3,000rpm going 50mph or 600 stopped at a light. Sometimes it'll start right back up, other times it'll take 5 minutes of cranking to get it to go again.
the 2 weeks prior, I would get very small jerks from time to time like the engine just lost power but then regained it. It wouldn't last for more the 1/2 a second.
Any ideas? Replaced ignition coil, didn't fix. New distributor cap/plugs/wires - didn't fix.
I need to get this fixed in the next 2 days, because I have to go on a trip Friday
