Starting problem in Honda Civic 1998 ex

Asked by Jun 05, 2017 at 07:38 AM about the 1998 Honda Civic EX

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

Okay, so I have a problem and would really
appreciate some help. So I have a 1998
Honda Civic. One night I was driving it fine
like I normally do. Next morning I get up to
go to work and my car won't start. I made
sure that I didn't leave any lights on and
none were, and I tried jumper cables and
nothing. So I bought multi meter to see if
alternator is messed up and it was well
below the 14 it's supposed to be. So I buy
new alternator, put it in, and it starts but
sounds weird, loud noises. Couple minutes
goes by and car heats up, noise goes
away and I shut off and turned on car to
make sure it worked, sure enough it did o
problems. 5 minutes go i hop in the car
and sure enough it won't start again. Car
never showed any signs of starting
problems before this.. could use some
help!!
