Question about 2000 Honda Accord
My 2000 Honda Accord has been setting in the driveway for about two years without starting. I put in new battery, new plugs, and gas. Engine will turn, but not start. What suggestions does anyone have?
Hi if you have a spark at the plus then under the bonnet look on the fuel rail that feeds all the injectors at the end of the rail you will see the main fuel line release the banjo bolt that holds the main fuel line get someone to turn it over for you if fuel is pumping then at least now you know you have fuel and spark which now leads to what i suspect your your problem is engine compression what happens if you leave a car stood any lenth of time brakes stick on clutch plates stick and valves stick as a build up of damp carbon fossilises on the seats so they dont seal the compression in the cylinders soultion to this is the hard way decoke the cylinder head [expensive ] or get some one to tow you round and bump start the car it will struggle at first but will start if by some stretch on the imagination it doesnt check the compressions yates210456

Five major things.
1 : Air Filter
2 : Fuel Filter
3 : Oil Change
4 : PCV Valve (they stick after long storage a lot of the time)
5 : Anti-Freeze (at least check it out see if it's any good)
Do this, and see what happens. A lot of time small animals and bugs will make an air intake tube a new home. This is one major place to inspect after a long stay outside for any car.
I hope this helps. You started out right by getting a new battery, plugs and fuel. Now try checking the other major parts. Also, make sure the plug wires are nicely fitted to the coils as well. There might be some corrosion there causing reduced spark.
