94 civic dx: rains..fuel pump..the check engine light goes out…

Customer Question
I have a 94 civic...
I have a 94 civic dx. When it rains or when its really humid it takes a long time for the fuel pump to kick in. Sometimes i wait for 10 mins and somtimes for 3 mins, before the Pump kicks in and the check engine light goes out. But once it kicks in it starts and runs fine. Do you think its getting moisture in the line somewhere or in the tank? Already changed the Main Relay,fuel pump, pressure regulater and fuel filter.

About 6 months ago. Changed spark plug wires also.

So you are saying you can turn the key on and sometimes the check engine light stays on for 3-10 mins. before it will start?

Thank you very much for saving my daughter and her family a lot of money on her Honda. You are definitely on my list for future help. Thanks, again.

I just heard from my mechanic. You were right...a $45.00 job. THANK YOU!! Your response was received in less than 10 minutes!!

Linda B.USA

Your answers were clear and the diagrams were perfect. Dealer wanted $87 for an hour of labor and even I did it in 15 minutes.

EdUSA

HONDA PLATINUM was great. I really appreciate his help. I was ready to trade my new Honda until he told me to wait until I got 3,000 miles on it and my gas mileage would get much better.

SummerUSA

I took the Power Steering O-Ring service bulletin linked from JustAnswer to my Acura dealer, and not only did they no-charge the o-ring, they also replaced the power steering pump at no cost.

Gary RStevenson Ranch, CA

Wonderful service, prompt, efficient, and accurate. Couldn't have asked for more. I cannot thank you enough for your help.

Mary C.Freshfield, Liverpool, UK

This expert is wonderful. They truly know what they are talking about, and they actually care about you. They really helped put my nerves at ease. Thank you so much!!!!
