Question about Honda Cars & Trucks
Many engines for the last couple of decades and most engines for the last decade have no distributor because they are reckoned to be an inefficient and inaccurate waste of time unsuited to computer driven accuracy.
Modern engines use a sensor at the crankshaft to detect the crankshaft position and another sensor at the camshaft so the computer knows which stroke each cylinder is on and then with other information from other sensors works out precise timing and injection points.
Nowadays they have even eliminated the plug wires and engines either use a bespoke coil pack that fits directly onto three or four spark plugs at once or a tiny coil fitted to each spark plug.
More accurate this might be and requiring of less maintenance and more reliable but when it goes wrong it is infinitely more bother and much more expesive and there is no way local labour will be able to make paperclip repairs to get you home or press an unsuitable part into temporary service...
Thre is an English guy living in the States named David Vizard and in the matter of engines and design he is a guy worth listening to. He said, "sound engineering is what gets the job done with the least complexity".
I believe he is right and that means modern design and engineering is based on "unsound engineering"...

If i was guessing on this problem i would say that the pressure switch is malfunctioning and telling the computer to shut the a/c down. It could be a power stearing or a throttle switch as well.

i am thinking that the 15 amp fuse is the fuse that protects the ecm circuit replase the O2 sensor wires and check the harnes for a shorted wire.

when I make a sharp right turn with my 98 honda crv, I get a "squel' from the back right tire. I also sometimes get a squel that something is slipping when I accelerate from a stop light

check to see if your vehicle has a rear sway bar if it does then replace the end links and bushings they are usually the culprits of clunking noises and also check the rear shocks(or struts) for leaking or binding put your knee on the bumper and put all your weight in to pushing down on it and let it come back up on its own do this quickly with someone under it listening for the noise to present itself.If it was the rear drive axle mounting points this would also cause some handling issues.

First you have to determine weather you
have a FUEL problem or (ELECTRICAL)Spark problem ??
Pull the coil wire off or a easy to get
to spark plug wire, Lay it close to were you pulled it off of (Do not
hold or touch you may get SHOCKED) and crank motor (need two people)
look and listen for a spark, if you see or here a spark, then go to
next step which will be to check for Fuel (gas). Be very careful when
checking fuel, as most lines are under pressure and may cause bodily
harm such as BURNS to EYES and SKIN!! Loosen or pull the inlet fuel
line off and put rag over line. Some fuel injected vehicles have a
fuel rail the has a valve that looks like a tire valve. Put a rag
over this valve and push it in with a small screw driver and have
someone crank motor a couple of times to see if fuel is coming out.
If NO Spark---Could be a lot of things
Points (older vehicles) Modules, Coils, Crank Sensors, ECT......
If NO Fuel---- Could be Clogged fuel
filter, Fuel Pump, Fuel pump Relay, Fuse, ECT..........
Hope this helps you ??
