Girlfriends car won't start

It's a 1997 honda accord 4 cylinder. her father just changed the rotors, battery and the belt a couple of days ago. before he did anything, i realized the fan wasn't working and told them there may be something wrong with the computer. of course he wrote me off. she was driving yesterday and the car cut off on her. what could be wrong?

Cut out on her? explain please.. What you say he did has no bearing on the engine running., or quiting, except the battery and that is new.. Make sure her radio is of and disconnect the battery for 15 minutes then reconnect. See if that helps. Sort of like a reset for the computer. Just need to disconnect the ground.

Still at a lost with my 1996 4 cylinder. Honda Accord .won't start no visible spark at the. Ignition coil.,distributor cap or wires changed coil, and the main relay, problem still exists, won't start


There's a crankshaft sensor and it is possible to have a few if the teeth of timing belt missing. Which the belt wikl look fine. But will not turn the cam. Which will leave you with out fire. Chech the rotor under distributor cap and see if it is turning? No turn? Timing belt is bad. If it turns? Crank sensor is bad.

1)all spark plugs
2)do a oil change
3)spark plug wires
3)distributor cap and rotor

note misfire can be cause by:
1.bad gas
2.spark plug and/or wire
3.distributor cap and/or rotor
4.valve adjustment
5.injector
6.off timing
7.ECM

97 honda accord 4 cylinder none vtech putting my


This is exactly the way it is supposed to be. The spark virtually never occurs at TDC. The spark is always advanced somewhat, sometimes as much as 45 degrees if the engine is reving high and at minimal load. The distributor is made so that the rotor points to the cap terminal within it's operating range...usually between 15 and 30 degrees before the #1 piston reaches the top of it's travel.
Hope this helps. Do you have a problem?

My 1998 honda civic ex wont start, I have tried changing the fuel filter, distributor cap and rotor, and air filter. It cranks but wont fire up... a couple days ago the car stopped running while my dad...


Make sure your distruibutor rotor in turning while cranking engine, if it is timing belt ok, more then likely your not getting spark to spark plugs check your ignition coil, but more then likely it's going to be your ignition module.

1990 Honda Accord DX 5 speed no power/2 cylinders not firing?


ok.....as far as the oil on them it is possible it is only the spark plug tube seals located on the inside of the valve cover,in fact if you can remember when you took the old plug wires off the boots of a couple propably had oil on them.now as far as the real problem I would recommend checking the timing belt it is possible it jumped time,its pretty simple just remove the valve cover(gonna replace the seals anyways)and top timing cover.roll the engine around and look for the cam and crank marks.if you need anymore suggestions or help let me know have a good day DB

Check the timing belt settings. Bring it to top dead center and verify that that all the marks are where they are supposed to be. Had that same problem 5 years ago and it was that the belt had jumped 1 tooth due to stretching. Hope this helps.

It is a known problem and the ignition switch was part of a recall. Lots of information here and a few fixes. Look at the video tab as well.
