93 civic hatchback won't start

Asked by Feb 02, 2017 at 06:55 PM about the Honda Civic Hatchback

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

Here's a good one. I have a 93 hatchback with a
D16Y1 motor  and it won't start. Had water come in
and it shorted my main relay. I tested the ECU on
another civic and it's working I changed the main
relay and now it's just spinning the starter and
won't crank over. Can anyone help me out on this
one??

Is there spark & fuel?

There's spark and fuel coming in but it won't crank... Before I changed the relay there was no spark or fuel but it would crank

What color is the spark? White or orange.

Looks white... Right now I'm trying to retrieve a broken valve cover bolt... it was loose and I found out why

This car is giving me a hard time

The white spark is good. What other designations is this car? EX, CX, DX, etc.

It's a DX I believe.... The guy I got it from swapped the motor to a D16Y1

Ok, good spark, so how wet did this get? Could have the timing belt gotten wet? Timing off maybe, otherwise you may be lacking fuel pressure. May have to check the fuel pressure, it should be 40 to 47 lbs.
