If your car won't start because of a weak battery, try this:
Check the battery like this:
Turn on the headlights, then try to start the car.
If the headlights do not dim or go out, then the battery is likely ok.
Check that the battery cable plus post, goes to the starter, Minus post to a good ground, like the engine.
If wiring is ok, then look at the starter solenoid for a good connection, and proper voltage at the starter.
Problem is most likely the Solenoid's bendix gear or starting relay, Have someone bang on the starter while you try to start the car. This usually works by dislodging the bendix gear..
Hope this helps.

SOURCE: engine turns over fine , car will not start.

well the first part of your question i was all ready to tell you to put a new fuel pump in, now not so sure, there is a relay for fuel pump, can you hear pump cycle and relay click? relay under hood you will have to listen close they don't run long maybe a couple secounds, if you don't relay bad. if you do pump could be bad, do fuel pressure test pump could be weak. don't think sunroof and turn signals are related, but stranger things have happend.

I suspect that your spark plug wires or your distributor is going out. Check your spark wires and distributor. To do that take out #1 spark plug wire from the spark plug. Next take out your spark plug then put it in the spark plug wire. Then turn on car and take a look at the spark plug to see if it's getting a spark. Do this with all the spark plug. If it is your spark plug wire I would replace all of them.

Hi...my name is Keith...if you will pull a spark plug out and see if you are getting spark to the spark plug..and if you are getting spark... you can rule out the ignition....and i would look towards the fuel pump... and a fuel pump relay(if it is fuel injected)

SOURCE: Car died while driving

Use a little starting fluid to make to the engine CAN ran for 2 second.

On high mileage car,it's possible to jump a tooth or two on the time belt (not chain).

Can you set TDC top dead center on cylinder and open timing cover to see the cam dots are lining up?

DO NOT attempt this in the dark.

=====
Check for oil coolant cross mix.
=====
Change fuel filter
-=====
fuel pump motor can ran but the plastic diaphragm will fall apart in a HOT DAY.

My 93 prelude won't start i change the fuel pump i check my fuses so what now i need help


You will have to see if your getting spark and fuel. If your getting both it should be starting either timing or injector pulse isn't working maybe. If your not getting spark, you will need to check your ignition system. If your still not getting fuel then you have a relay or maybe a computer problem. This isn't exact but a short list of what to check so you can reply with more information.

How do i disconnect the 4ws


Compare your rear knuckles to a non 4WS. You have to remove the steering extension shaft leading back there as well as the rear tie rods. The rear knuckles have to be locked so they don't steer. Might need to swap some of the components from a junkyard 88 89 90 91 Prelude.
