Question about 2004 Honda Civic
Engine did not want to start, only spinning noise. Replaced starter but still same spinning noise and car still does not want to start. Please help!!
While you're trying to start the car, have someone bang on the starter, under the car, not too hard. This will usually un-jam the pinion gear and it will turn over.
I had to do that and it worked great. Then i Just washed the tip of the pinion gear in a cleaner and it's worked now for 15 years.

My Taurus wagon had same thing once. It was a TFI sensor(for fuel injector's) on the outside of the distributer. Maybe you have something similar on the Honda. Could be timing belt also. Engine won't engage if it does not have a belt or chain in tact. Toyota Rav 4 had that. Did same thing you describe.
