Question about 1990 Honda Accord
A few days ago my car would not start, it would only make a weird clicking sound. now all it does is spin the engine, i think it might not be getting any spark because after starting it i can smell gas. it also flashed the trouble codes 5 and 4 i know 5 is the manifold absolute presure sensor. and 4 is crankshaft position sensor, my manual says that this sensor is located inside the distributor so my main question is if i remove the distributor cap would i have to do anything related to retiming it or anything? any other info would be great thanks.
I have had a similar problem with my honda. After doing some research, the distributors will fail and it is common. If you are able to replace the crank sensor that is great. you do not have to do the timing as long as you do not remove the whole distributor. I found it easier to remove and replace the whole distributor. remove the three screws and discconnect the connectors and pull it straight out. the installation is in reverse and the best thing is it will only go in one way. replace the screws and the connectors and your done. But you will have to do the timing. You might have to remove the spark plugs to see if they have fouled out. if they did see if you can clean them or replace.
