Do not waste money on dist cap and wires at this point. The problem is more likly in the ignition primary curcuit. Meaning anywhere from the distributor primary impulse detecftor to the computer that manages the timing of this primary curcuit that ultimatly goes to the ingition coil. It will be more cost effective to go to a shop that has the product specific information and diagnostic tools to sort out this problem.

good luck

SOURCE: Need 1996 Honda Accord radio code, please

Hiya,
Pull open the center console ash tray, depress the sides, giggle it out and you'll find a series of numbers ( I think on the bottom ) and there you will find your gold. The find digit number is it. If you entered too many wrong numbers, follow the manual on how to get more tries.
Also, this has to be the original radio in the car.

SOURCE: running rough, wont idle, bad gas smell

Possible injector failure. locate by disconnecting injectors one at a time. The one that makes no change is the questionable. Status of spark plugs need chkg also. pull the plugs an the one that looks washed is questionable good luck

Honda makes diesels - awesome.

Well, I know diesels aren't very complicated engines, however when anything goes wrong it's usually the fuel filter. I suggest changing the fuel filter, and see what happens.

Can't think of much else that would cause a diesel to that. And you say it only does it ever now and then, and you have to shut it off and then restart it.

Let me know if you need any further assistance.

2005 honda accord diesel, Jerking when accelerate


1: Change your fuel filters and bleed the air out of it.
2: Check all rubber hoses for loose hose clamps and
cracks or leaks.
Almost certainly in one or both of the two points above.

Won't start. Runs terrible. changed plugs,wires,fuel pump,coil. plugs smelled of gas and were blackened.


Not terribly familliar with honda cars but most systems use either a cold start injector or just richen up mixture through the normal fuel system. This is controlled by a temperature sensor, either separate from or part of dash gauge sensor. I'd begin looking for that. If its always in "cold start" if will give you symptoms like yours. If not fuel injected, check choke operation. This may not be a "cure" but it's a good place to begin looking!

Strong Diesel Smell inside HJ Turbo Diesel Landcruiser


Since you didnt notice any change in the performance of your engine, ill presume there's nothing wrong with your fuel injectors.
look for moisture around your gas tank cap, the hose and clamps going down the tank, around the fuel gauge sending unit of your tank. have your fuel line checked from the tank to your fuel injection pump, give particular importance around the connections of your fuel filter, fuel pump, and the return hose from your fuel injection going back to your tank.
Diesel do emit strong hazardous odors that may stick on carpets inside your car.

Maybe you need new spark plugs or you have a leak in your fuel rail.I would get it checked out by a good mechanic because if you smell gas you run the risk of a fire.
