    ok i think it is the fuel pressure regulator let me tell you why. when i first put the battery in and turn the key i hear the engine getting primed. when i turn the key it starts for a brief second and then it never wants to turn over again. could it be that the internals on the fpr are bad and no longer holding pressure or enough pressure for the injectors to spray out properly?

    have you looked into the fuel pump. also check the wiring going to the fuel pump for any loose or bad connections. also try and see what the resistance is between the ecu and the distributor.

    the fpr is a cheap and easy replacement man try that before replacing the other fuel components, especially if you aren't getting code 16 and you hear your fuel pump prime, if its not that maybe a bad check valve in the fuel pump?

    yeah, try not to just keep throwing parts at the car. that could get expensive. start out with checking the simple stuff first.

    the only reason why i am ruling out the main relay is because if the main relay was bad i wouldn't get spark at all right? and along with not getting spark the fuel will not shoot out right? that is why i am ruling out the main relay. unless i am completely wrong please let me know

    man so you think it has to be a relay. ok i guess i will do that next. why do you remove yours everything? so no one would steal it? and what fuse exactly is "the 70 block fuse" just as a heads up remember my civic is obd2a!
