Check the timing. When you shoot a timing light at the crank, the mark should stay basically in one spot. If it jumps around, it's slipped a cog.
Has this engine been running, or are you just getting it going for the first time, or did it die on you or what?

1993 Honda accord 10th anniversary edition won't start, turns over, has spark & fuel pressure. 2.2 motor auto transmission.


These have a know issue with the Distributors.. You may be seeing a spark but the spark may be so weak that it is not sufficient to ignite the air/fuel mixture in a compressed environment.

I had this happen to my 1992 Honda. Cost me over $400 in Troubleshooting and nobody could figure it out. I went to one of my venders (Parts for Imports) and they enlightened me and sold me a New Distributor and installed it and BAM!!!! Ran like a top.

I did extensive Troubleshooting myself, ran into a brick wall because mine was doing the same... Good Fuel Pressure, Spark but Nothing.

One thing does come to mind that I tested mine and that is to do a Compression Test or pop the cover off the Timing Belt to see if it is Moving or if the Timing has jumped...

This Motor is an INTERFERENCE MOTOR, If the Belt Broke or Slipped, you could have caused some damage.

If you need any further assistance, please let me know. I have an extensive Background with Honda's... I certified as an ASE Mechanic in 1979 (Dang I am getting OLD)....

My 89 jeep cherokee won't. Start it will turn over


what motor? is the coil producing spark?? If so, check the fuel pressure, if the fuel pressure is low drop the tank, repace the pump and also replace the filter (located on the frame forward of the tank). If the coil is not producing spark, check for shorts or opens in the circuits as well as the IGN fuses. If there is NO fuel pressure at all check the fuel pump fuses and make sure the fuel pump is plugged in and there are no opens in the circuit

I have a 1992 Oldsmobile Cutluss Supreme was going down road the other night and just died, changed battery after having old one on charger for a day and getting know place, the car now cranks and turns...


to check fuel pressure you have to use a gauge not just push on the schrader valve to see if gas squirts out.these systems run at 35lbs pressure anything much less and it will not start.also check the fuel volume as if its low the pump cannot supply enough to fuel the motor to run it won`t.

Car gets fuel has spark but won;t start.motor turns over .it seems to want to start,for the first turn over.then not


Check the actual fuel pressure and make sure it is to spec. Fuel injected vehicles need a certain pressure to run.
