What engine?
fails hot engine, or cold engine and what engine of the many?
seems dont work in repairs.
ever do a tuneup ever?
sinces it sometimes runs we can check off bad engine. of the 4.
here they are. NO STARTS:
1: loss of 12vdc electric power to the EFI system. (dash lights dim?)
2: bad engine (skip this)
3: bad spark , seems is not an option here, we test all spark at all cylinders using a good new test spark plug.
Its a honda, and we check timing, too,, using , a timing light.
if the spark is good and timing is bad, then the timing belt slipped
if it slips more, the valve in the head bend. end of motor.
sometimes no starts, saves the engine, from itself. so i do spark 100% or better, on all honda's, i do a cylinder leak down test by hand
so i dont MAKE IT WORSE. (it's and interference engine)
4: bad fueling, flooding or starvation, readling spark plug tips tells me
which it is.

3.0L & 3.2L is Non-Interference , no engine stated. so ....

SOURCE: 1992 Honda Accord wont start when cold out Fires

this could possibly be an iac or idle air control valve issue. the iac valve controls the amount of air that bypasses the throttle body in order to maintain proper idle, and is mounted on or very near the throttle body on the intake manifold. check the connector to ensure it's tight and the connections are clean, not corroded. i'd recommend replacing the iac valve.

SOURCE: 95 honda accord turns over but wont start

Sometimes when a fuel filter is stopped up,and you change it,the fuel pump later,will go out,cause of the strain on the pump.

Firing order on cap for 1988 honda prealude


6 cylinder firing order is usually ,153624. Fours are 1342.
Turn the engine by hand (use the fan belt or a spanner or socket on the crank pulley until the timing marks line up. The position of the distributor rotor should either be at number 1 or it will be 180 degrees out. Place lead from number 1 directly into the plug hole in the cap that lines up with where the rotor is pointing. Arrange the remaining plug leads in the order as above. If it doesn't run or sounds like the motor is locking up, it would mean the timing is out. Repeat the process again. Try and get confirmation of firing order from a Honda dealer. Good luck

When hot will randomly not start unless gas pedal is pressed all the way down. on a 2001 honda crv. replaced fule pump,fuel relay,fuel filter, dist. cap, rotor, coil,plugs, wires, and ignition control


If you hold the pedal to the floor it puts the fuel system into Clear Flood Mode. This prevents the injectors from firing and lets the already present fuel burn out. Now if this has to be done on every short trip you probably have a leaking injector.

Does the vehicle seem to crank slowly or stop and then crank when this happens?

My 1991 honda civic runs fine yesturday and today it wont start please help


the car wont start? do you mean the engine wont turn over or it wont fire or run? if the car does not run but it turn over, check the basic..see if you have sparks and fuel, then check all your fuse pertaining to engine and ignition. the car need to have both thing in order for the engine to run. If you getting both sparks and fuel you engine may have jump time especially with older car with high miles, it the sign timing belt getting worn, you don't want it to break. if you don't get fire from spark plug then you may have a bad coil,distubutor,rotor or timing sensor. if you get no fuel, fuse blown, bad fuel pump relay or fuel pump it self. hope that help some ..good luck

Hi
Try to jump start the car.
Put the jump leads on and leave it for 10 mins
that will charge the battery up
then try and start.
Also check the starter motor.
