I have a civic 04 ex automatic the key don't come don't have spark and the injector not pulsing does the inmovilizer have something to do with this problem ?


just went through similar issue with a 99 accord spark would be out because of the crank sensor but wouldn't kill injector pulse there is what is called a main relay honda used it controls both the injectors and fuel pump my car wasn't getting fuel pump power if you pull relay down should be next to brake pedal under dash and 7 wires and pull internals out and check circuit board for burnt solder or cracked solder when i wouldn't hear fuel pump i would take and apply light pressure to circuit board then fuel pump would kick in the injector side should be 6 volts and fuel pump should be 12 volts i would change crank sensor and get spark to return and then trouble shoot injectors also my car had after market remote start and keyless entry and was causing the key not to be recognized i removed alarm and got the coded key to read then had to trouble shoot the other problems after rectifying others first

Dead cylinder number 2 bad injector number 2


use a digital volt meter,put it on the ohm scale check number 2 fuel injector should be 11 to 16 ohms if not reads zero fuel injector faulty.if numbe 2 fuel injector okay.use noid light hook it to fuel injector electrical connector with fuel injector disconnected and see if pcm is firing the fuel injector noid light should blink when cranking the engine.if light steady pcm not firing 2 fuel injector,if noid light dont light up.there is a open in the wiring connector 2 fuel injector 2. if fuel injector okay,check spark plug, carbon foul you have a bad ignition coil or wire if you see oil on spark plug you have worn piston ring or leaking valve guides allowing oil to foul out spark plug.do a compression test check compression to see condition of the cylinder.

Number one injector came loose in 2001 toyota avensis d4d, removed injector pipes, wiring on injectors and rocker cover, tightened down injector, rebuilt and is now down on power.


REPLACE THE FUEL INJECTOR CANT REBUILT IT.IF YOU REMOVE FUEL INJECTORS FUEL RAIL YOU HAVE TO REPLACE GROMMETS AND O RINGS ON ALL THE FUEL INJECTORS IF NOT YOU WILL HAVE A INTAKE LEAK AT THE OLD FUEL INJECTORS SEALS.REPLACE THE FUEL INJECTOR YOU REBUILT THEY HAVE TO BE REPLACED.

How often should I get a brake flush, power steering flush and fuel injection cleaning on a 2004 Saturn Vue w/129,000 miles?


you should never need a brake flush, possibly get the brakes bled if you have brake work or replace brake cylinders, master cyl ,brake lines replace, or a brake job. you also dont need power steering flush. If you have work done on the rack and pinion or the pump replaced they will add fluid as needed and bleed air from the system but you shouldnt need a flush on those items. Now for the fuel injection, our so called high tech fuel is suppose to have all those goodies in it, but if you think you need to you can go to the local auto parts store and buy fuel injector cleaner and add it to your tank of fuel every 6-8 fill ups or every two months. I personally would change my fuel filter more often rather than add injector cleaner. Gas is a great grease and grime cleaner in itself as long as it does not sit stagnant for a period of time where it will "tarnish" The idea of a fuel system is to keep it clean from debris with a filter so the spray of the injector does not get clogged or damaged. Injector cleaner only helps clean carbon and varnish deposits, it will not remove a small pin head size rock or other foreign debris,that is the filters job. So the filter is much more important.

My 2000 Ford Focus SE is throwing a P0302 code for misfire in cylinder 2. We replaced the spark plugs and wires, cleaned the fuel injectors, and checked all fluids. It still misfires and my gas mileage is...


Ignition coil is most likely..clogged injector is uncommon but possible..fuel injector cleaner can only do so much..coil would be the thing to start with..

I need to know what should I take care of 1st with my car. It needs the following; rear shocks battery hold down tran fluid flush brake flush cap rotoe wire need replacement feul systme flush drive blets...


Sounds like you have been talking to a very aggressive sales person!! Assuming the car is running halfway ok, & without seeing the condition of anything the most critical in terms of breakdown are:

  • belts
  • brakes
  • battery hold down
  • cap, rotor, wires, spark plug
  • trans, brake & fuel flush(by the way..no where in your maintenance manual does your car call for flushes of any kind!!) Go by what it says in your book

Uses excessive fuel


Brakes could be binding or hand bake cable holding on but you think youd smell burning brakes if that was the case!What condition is the oxy sensor in ,maybe carboned up and contaminated which can tell the engine management to supply more fuel than required.is the air filter air box in good condition and air box lid securely fastened.Should be sealed from air box to throttle body If the air filter is clogged and dirty that can lead to excess fuel consumption.Have you installed any injector cleaner in the fuel tank.cleans up dirty injectors thst can cause excess fuel consumption.
