This Integra '91 LS HB 5 spd has been running great for years now.
The other day after a 15 minute drive. I return to car after
I try to start. The engine fires up (with usual sound) for
about 3 seconds, then just dies with a buuuuuu.
Like some one just turned it off. No funny sounds, nor pops,
no cracking, nor misfires etc.
I try again and it fires up for about 2 seconds and dies..
On the third try it fires no more but the engine turns over
fine , with the usual wah, wah, wah, wah.
So i am thinking no spark or no fuel.
I pull spark plug wire, put near metal and watch while help
tries to start for 2 seconds. Get a nice blue and orange
spark. I test for fuel pump , turn key to on and listen to
the slightly audible zzzzzzzzzzzzzzz-Click. Do that twice.
Try to start and it fires right up. Has not happened again
for past 3 days.
Is this a warning of something to come like the Honda civic
main relay problem ?
Any ideas ?
Thanks for any helpful ideas,
