2years ago my 98 civic LX manual would not start. rough then no start. accel pedal hard to depress then ok. MANY mechanics and 1.5 years later a mechanic replaced vcg (again) and car ran fine for 4 months. now doing it again. any ideas.


I had a Civic once.

Possible carbon build up around the throttle body and IACV. Inspect those and give them a good cleaning.
