    Had good fuel pressure and good compression. I also had spark, but apparently not "enough". Replaced external ignition coil and she fired right up tonight. Thanks for your help.

Not sure about timing. whaddya mean not sure? remove distributor cap. have someone crank it. if the rotor in the distributor isn't turning, you've got a busted timing belt, maybe bent valves, i'm not sure if it's a non-interference engine. Timing belt $800. bent valves=new car.

2003 honda accord lx cranks but wont start new battery starter fuel pump son drove it about a mile then drove home next day cranks but wont start


You must perform an engine control module fault code test as well as test the fuel pressure, if no codes are present and fuel pressure is ok check for a defective camshaft drive belt.

Hi there:
You will have to pinpoint what the engine is missing... Spark / Fuel / Compression

All three of these are tested when the engine is being cranked over. There are two way of checking for fuel. Fuel pressure and fuel trigger. Both are very important and must be present for the engine to start. Fuel pressure is self explanatory. You just hook up the gage and see what the reading is. Fuel trigger is check with a noid light. The injector gets unplugged and the noid light gets plugged in to the injector clip. With the engine cranking over, this light must blink. This is the signal to the injectors from the computer. You can have all the fuel pressure in the world, but it wont matter if the injector is not pulsing gas into the cylinder like it should.

Compression tester, spark tester, fuel pressure gage and noid light are all accessible at your local auto store. All three tests play a very important part in diagnosing a no start condition. Be extremely careful when doing these tests.

Hope this helps; also keep in mind that your feedback is important and I`ll appreciate your time and consideration if you leave some testimonial comment about this answer.

Thank you for using FixYa, have a nice day.

Civic hard to start, and when started shuts off


Try this first, and lets see what happens. Turn key to on, but not start, then off. do that about four or five times, then try to start. See if it starts, runs, then dies. Let me know. Have you had fuel pressure tested at all? If it doesn't start and run for a short while at least, take air intake hose off at throttle body intake, open throttle and spray a good shot of WD-40 into throttle body, then try to start. If it starts, you have a fuel delivery problem, maybe fuel pump or plugged filter would be first to check. Just because you hear the pump, doesn't necessarily mean it's getting proper pressure to run. Let me know what happens when you try this, and we'll go from there.

I have a 1993 honda accord that will start but won't stay cranked...what's wrong?


A few things to check:

Wrong spark plugs installed - causing too many misfires
Timing problem - the ECC (Engine Control Computer) will give up after a short while if it cannot get the engine to operate in correct time
clogged fuel filter
clogged air filter
clogged fuel strainer
worn distributor cap/rotor
failing fuel pump
vacuum leak
faulty ECC (Engine Control Computer)
ignition coil failing - the ECC will stall the engine if too many misfires are detected.
wireset - faulty spark plug wire(s) causing too many misfires.
faulty fuel pressure regulator
EGR valve faulty

If the engine is misfiring alot, it will **** the resulting unburned fuel out the exhaust pipe, so check for this as well.

My honda accord died while driving, and will not start, tried replacing fuel filter, there is fuel pressure and it cranks over but will not start


What you're describing could be a broken timing belt. To check the timing belt, if there is not a visual inspection hole, you will need to take off the timing belt cover or the valve cover.

The other possibility is a ignition/spark problem. Check for spark by pulling one of the spark plug wires, and look for spark as the starter is cranked. If no spark, check the distributor wiring and connections, If all good, it may be the ignition coil has gone bad.

Also, to be sure you are getting fuel, pull one of the spark plugs. You should smell fuel coming from that cylinder after the engine is cranked.
