Default Re: 91 civic

You have any more information about what it is doing? based on the information provided, Im going to take a stab at the ignition, on a car as old as yours, Im going to say that the contacts in the igntion are fried because when the igniton is turned on, the contacts inside the igniton are carrying the 12 volts of electricity so the contacts over the years have gotten hot from being used and cooled when not in use so the contacts probably cracked since the car wont even crank until hours later which probably means that the ignition contacts got hot and expanded and then the circut opened and the car shut off and wont even start until the igntion cools off. so id check the ignition. hope this helps
