    first check the oil level and coolant level, then remove all the spark plugs and crank the engine and see whether the engine cranks up easily, it should be free.observe for extra noise.check the gap in the spark plugs and fix them.if your problem is not solved yet check the carburetor, clean them with air and check the airfilter, your problem will be solved.

Did you check the starter?

    check with the dealership to see if your car is involved in the recall for the ignition switch gone bad. Happened to me, thought it was the starter, yes the starter was bad because the ignition switch, under the dash behind the ignition itself, was fried. This kept current to the starter and burnt out the solenoid. If it was worked on under the recall more than five years ago, ask the dealer to re-admit the recall and get a new switch. takes about 1 hour to R & R ( have to take of the dash panel - easy four bolts and four screws). good luck

I have a 1998 honda accord ex 4 cyl .it shut off while i was driving.Its not getting any fire.I changed the disribator and still no fire.everything worksits getting just will not start

Does the engine sound like its turning over faster than it normally does?

When you turn the key on do all the dash light come on as they normally do?

Is there an anti-theft light on or blinking?

With the distributor cap removed, crank the engine and see if the rotor turns in the distributor. If it doesn't check to see if the timing belt is broken.

If it does turn check for power on the black with yellow wire in the distributor. If there is no power check fuse 11 in the fuse panel under the drivers side of the dash.

Let me know how that pans out. If you have any questions let me know.

Having trouble sttaring cold takes many attempts

white smoke points to a head gasket issue, If your coolant is low and smells and looks weird then get the car tested to be sure.

1998 Honda Odyssey, I can't get the front brake rotors off. What is the trick? I tried removing the two phillips head screws which just stripped so I drilled them. Then I used #8 screws in the two...

The m8x1.25 that thread into the rotor act like a "puller". Insert both bolts and turn them each 1 turn at a time until the rotor comes off. They can be stubborn some times.

Honda odyssey cranks excessively when engine is warm

I find that in most fuel injector cars this can happen if the car is not given a couple of seconds to pump enough fuel to charge the injectors properly, especially on warmer days.

Try this: The next time you test this, instead of putting in the key and turning it all the way to start in one smooth move, try moving the key to the ON position, leave it there for a couple of senconds (you should hear the fuel pump whirr for a couple of senconds, then shut off. This means it is finished charging the injectors to the right pressure) then move the key to the start position to crank. See if that helps... (it has helped me...)
