I would check fuel pressure and leaks if you dont hear your fuel pump when your car is turned to the on position there is a problem with your pump check the main relay also they go bad ALL the time specially in hot weather. once you check those things and if they are good go from there check injectors and depending on what civic you have you may have mpfi or dpfi either way they both have injectors but the dpfi only has two they do go bad also.
