Default 1994 Honda Civic Issues?

My car was running fine yesterday and today it wouldn't start, it sounded like there was no compression and/or timing was off. My cel has been saying 43 for a while, but its been running fine. I did some research and feared the timing jumped and/or valve damage. I tried to start it again and this time it was backfiring and clanking horribly, after appx 5 minutes of trying to get it to fire, it started just fine, without even a miss???? Shut it off and it started just fine again.

My question is could the timing belt jump off track and then jump back on???

Thats what it seems like happened to me, or what else could have caused this?

CEL means 43 Fuel supply system

Possibly a failing pump or more likely a failing main relay (very common on this model).

You can fix the main relay as per these instructions:

Check your CEL again.. if you've jumped a tooth on the timing belt (its a toothed belt, and yes, it can actually slip without falling off) you'll get either of these codes:

4 CKP - crank position sensor

8 TDC - top dead centre sensor

Follow these instructions to check if you're off a tooth (and to fix the problem !)
