Question about 1996 Honda Accord
Ok so I installed an old clairon cd player in my car and hooked up an subwoofer and an amplifier. Then a few days later I noticed I wasn't getting the same gas mileage on a full that that I used to. I got a tune up about 5 months ago, new plugs, wires, air filter, and oil change. The car ran great. I opened the hood and saw the spark plug wire cover was not sealed like the others. I turns out that the oil entered the area where the spark plug is and got up to the boot and ruined the cover. So I took off the head gasket cover and replaced the gasket and the 4 valves dust gaskets and cleaned out the area where the spark plugs are to the best I could. I unscrewed the spark plugs and tightened them back up. It took me a while but I believe I got the firing order correct. After all that the car won't start up. I tried to jump start it and still nothing. It seems to want to start but it wont completely turn over. Please HELP
Firing sequence is off or plug wires are not connected completely. check the firing order, to the plugs and make sure all connections are on (you will have to push down on top of boot pretty hard to get a good connection)
If it is turing over jump starting isn't gonig to help (you battery if fine unless you have drained all the power from it)
