    yes you can. the chassis is setup for the d-series motor. all you need is the motor mounts and the correct ecu and wiring harness. every thing will bolt right into place. good luck on the swap. post pics as you go.

    You should be able to do the swap with no trouble. The 92 civic and the 95 del sol are mechanically the same cars. You should be able to just take eveything electrical / mechanical ( engine, ecu, wiring harnesses) off of the civic and put it right into the del sol.

    you don't need to go into your dash.... You have some other problem I'm not a mech but start trouble shooting for no spark ,, double check everything that you have done make sure you haven't left anythign out.
    Did you use the Harness off the civic? If so do you need to create and adaptor to go thur the fire wall and to the ECU? Check into and see if this is needed.
    Sorry I'm Not more help Still learning myself.

    :search: i think this is a lack of looking over the site...USE YOUR EYES MAN!!!! it's very simple...look at the top of the list of threads and ther is a little button that says "new thread" that is how you post a thread. hope this clears up any questions on the simplicity of posting...

    as for you, murphy's law..check for spark like redmac suggested. do this by starting the car and pull your wires up one at a time. you shoud get a big bog as if your engine is gonna shut down. if any of the cylinders do anything different there is a spark problem. either the cap is bad or something in the wiring is messed up...if none of our answers work for you post in this area:

    this is the place where all the electronic ?'s are answered by people that know what exactly they are doing... good luck.
