Hey guys, I have a 1993 Honda Civic Ex sedan that’s been sitting in my garage for about 13 years. I recently got it to start moving and I been driving it let’s say for about a month. And recently I started having problems with the fuel pump not working… what I mean is that when I turn the key in the ignition, the fuel doesn’t prime. This making the car not to start.
So I did some research on this problem… and what I end up doing was replacing parts… I replaced the fuel pump, fuel filter, and the fuel relay, and it still gives me problems. I also ended up cleaning any ground wire possible since some guys told me it can be from a shortage. Only thing I haven’t change is the fuel floater that shows how much gas I have and the floater doesn’t work but I don’t think that would cause it not to work…
They only way I can get my car to start is, I put the key in the ignition and turn it to where the gas should prime and leave the key in it and just wait. Sometimes it takes a minute or sometimes it takes about 10 minutes until the fuel pump primes the gas and then I start the car.
The car runs fine and smooth, no idle problems or shakes when driving… only problem is, is starting the car.
The last thing that I haven’t replaced that I’ve been told to is the ECM but idk if I should.
Anyone knows what could be wrong?
