Question about 1997 Honda CR-V

1 Answer

I hit a speed hump with my Honda CRV and the vehicle stoped and would not start. so we reset the button that cut the fuel and spark if the vehicle has an accident. But now the fuel pump is on all the time and the injectors have a constant earth and the top of the pistons are full of fuel and the engine wont turn over?

Try replacing the fuel pump relay. It is possible that the relay stayed latched on keeping the pump running constantly.

You may have too much fuel and are flooding the engine when the fuel line is connected. This could be due to fuel dripping from leaking injectors or a cold start injector that is stuck open. Or, if the fuel pressure regulator is faulty and stuck in the high pressure mode, too much fuel will be sent through the cold start injector and the engine will flood.

SOURCE: 98 honda crv engine stalls whats wrong?

The IAC [idle control motor] may be sticking. This problem usually occurs once the car exceeds 80,000 miles in service. Remove the IAC and clean it's interior with carburetor cleaner. Reinstall it using a new gasket. Sometimes, cleaning will not suffice & a new IAC must be installed. A sticking or leaking EGR [exhaust gas recirculation] valve can cause the same problem.

My Toyota quantum has hit a speed hump now doesn't start May u help

Reset the Fuel Pump Cut-off or Inertia Switch. You'll need to look in you owners manual for the location then simply push the red button down to reset it. Hitting a speed bump fairly hard can, and often does trip the switch as the switch thinks the vehicle has been in an accident so it shuts the fuel pump off for safety. Resetting it is not a problem.

Check fuel pressure, check engine codes, check for spark when it is dead. Spark related might be distributor or cap or rotor. Check codes for free at autozone unless you buy a obd2 scanner from them.

Hi l've checked the fuel switch as u advice but still my car is not starting l also checked the fuel system plz help me 2005 ford bantam rocam engine l hit the pot hole then car just cut off and

Try spraying a shot of wd40 into a couple of the spark plug holes, reinstall plugs and wires and try again. The wd40 will allow the vehicle to start if there is spark. Check your coil pack connections.
Was anything torn off when you hit the pot hole?

Can you check if there is spark since you verified fuel ? please let me know. A car needs fuel (wd40) and spark to run.

If your driving a Ford vehicle you might have tripped your fuel cut off switch. Look in your trunk usually on the left side kind of up high you'll find a red or yellow button marked fuel cut off push it in to reset it. Your car should start. Hope this helps

Engine cut off after a accident

Many vehicles have a fuel shut off switch that cut the fuel pump of when the vehicle is in a collision, I believe the one on the Honda is located in the trunk (boot), it looks like a relay with a button on top, the button needs to be pushed down to reset, you should hear a click. If it is not in the trunk, look across the bulkhead or inner wing area, a Honda agent may give you a better location.

Some vehicles have a fuel pump cut off switch that shuts all power to fuel pump in case of an accident. It activates by inertia...meaning that a severe "bump" will activate switch, thereby cutting off the fuel pump. If your vehicle has that switch, hitting that bump may have activated switch. If you do have that switch, reset it by pressing in the reset button.
