AOA dear friends,
This is my first post on pakwheels and am looking forward for a solution of the problem i have been facing for quite a long time. I own a honda civic 96 exi. Last summer it started giving me a little trouble. The problem is that when the engine is hot i.e runs for 15, 20 kms and then switched off it wont start again. The ignition would drastically drop as if the battery is dead. As the engine gets cold, it would start normally. I didn't take the problem seriously until last week when i had to replace the gasket (which blew due to overheating). There were many many surprises under the hood when the engine block was opened to install a new gasket which i will post some other time. At that time i decided to take care of the starting problem that i was facing. The mechanic did this:
1- Checked the battery with some meter which showed "ok" report.
2- Removed the self and the verdict was that it needs replacing as repair would cost more.
3- A "kabli" self was installed and thumbs up were given (after spending 5 hours)
4- Happily I drove back home and when parked my car I switched off the engine and tried to switch it back on. The self went down again.
5- Left the car next day with the mechanic and went back to him in the eve. He told me that after changing 3 or 4 selfs finally he installed the one from automatic transmission engine. Same problem again : cold engine ok start, hot engine no start. Verdict : Replace the battery.
My question is if battery is the issue then why does the engine start when it's cold?
I am waiting for expert advice as I'm tired of waiting for at least 2 people on the road to push start my car when the engine is hot.
