Hi Simon

Check your battery is not dead.

Recharge it and test it.

If OK , Jump start with your booster too holding max throttle to clear the plugs.

If no success, check your cam belt has not jumped a tooth.

Have you ever had it replaced ?

Good luck !

Give me feed back !

A fixYa rating would be apreciated .....Thank you !

John.

    Hi Simon



    Just take them out 1 at a time and give the electrodes a clean with a little wire brush, and a wash and wipe with some cleaning alcohol.

    Good Luck !

I have a 2004 honda accord last night i drve it with no problems out of no where today it wont start i have lights radio but it will not turn over we tried boosting with a car and a booster


If it won't start with booster cables, but the radio and lights work, that's not good.
Try putting it in neutral instead of park.
It could be the ignition switch, the starter relay, the starter, etc.
The etc is the problem. It takes a mechanic to figure it out if it's not just a moody ignition switch.

Truck wont start in the morning or if it sitts for a couple of hours.I have 60 psi fuel pressure and i have spark. When i try to start it just keeps turning over. If I use starting fluid it starts right...


I think your fuel pressure is borderline.How accurate is the gauge? Those injectors usually wont work under 58psi. I would replace the fuel pumpp and filter if the truck has over 125K miles on the original pump. .

I would look at the brake booster line. I have the same truck and it was the vacumn line off the booster.

Car cranks just fine but will not start, tried cold start fuel, but didn't help. it actually starts once a day usually in the morning but that's it.


These cars have a problem with the main relay. They quit working when they get hot. This explains why your car will start when it is cold. Check out some of the other posts about this problem, also the Honda Civic.
