What codes are stored in the computer as a result of the check engine light being on? That would be the place to start. Have your mechanic scan it and give you a print out, come back and add the error codes for a more definitive answer here.

I would say either the coolant temperature sensor,or the oxygen sensor,the both determine how much fuel to feed a cold engine.in 91 I think civic were availble in both carb and fuel inj.,if its carbureted it may be a whole different can of worms.
