Whenever I have worked on old Hondas with no spark,they have always gotten a salvege yard distributer ....they were well known for going bad inside,whether its a coil or ignition module or whatever inside distributer,the easiest fix is to replace whole thing...good luck...lee

Honda pilot out of gas put gas in and still won't start

false economy that.....
the pump is fuel cooled and Lubricated,
running it dry, wrecks the pump. (at the least lost the prime)

this car is no like an old carb car ,where this is ok.

if lucky key on and off 10 times, and hear the pump, it you hear it run.
it may prime. some cars 1/2 the pump is dead until cranked.
so easy to drain a battery priming the pump.

What is the best way to prime a fuel pump that is not picking up fuel to the injectors?

if its been of the road this long all the **** will be at the bottom of the tank 2 gallons is not much realy is there a hose you can take off and try sucking the fuel through may be a blokage in the feeder pipe is the motor running when you turn the car over should still run when cranking plus you can see if the motor runns by taking it off and putting it direct to battery to see if it runs make sure there is mo fuel in the pump before putting it direct to battery for obvious resons

1993 mercury village engine was running was driving down road it shut down, check engine light was on , friend said to change fuel pump and still no spark at engine plugs, what should i try next? is there...

Fuel pumps don't have anything to do with spark. Have the codes read. My guess you lost the crank sensor, ignition module, or coil. Check your fuses also.

Engine cranks but will not turn over. Relay switch is not tripped. has like 5 gallons of gas in it. Thought it may be beacuse it was low on gas. Has super strong crank, just will not power up.

My friend "cranks" is the same thing as "turn over" ... does it crank or not? You say it has a strong crank ...

You might be flooded, more likely you have ignition troubles. Do you have spark? You test this by pulling a spark plug wire and putting another spark plug on the wire, with the plug grounded, observe to see if you have spark. If you have fuel, in the tank, there is that possibility you have a fuel pump fault. Naturally aspirated or fuel injection? If you have a carb, look down the throat to see if there is gas when you press on the gas petal.

I think you are going to have to have this repaired by your mechanic.
