    1995 Honda Civic dx killing itself

    I was letting my stock D15 Civic warm up and it started to miss and then it just shut off and won’t crank back up but when I try to start it it try to hit but won’t crank what could be wrong because I just bought the car

    By “not cranking” do you mean starter doesn’t turn the engine?
    (Or does the engine turn and fail to fire up?)

    If the starter does turn the engine, clean and tighten both battery clamps.

    If engine fails to fire, check to see if you have spark.
    There are a few causes of no spark: bad coil, bad igniter, bad main relay*, possibly a blown fuse. Coil and igniter are in the distributor, main relay is under the dash board near front door hinge (which side depends on model year)

    *I cannot remember if main relay controls the ignition power and fuel pump power.

    Take care,
