does you car go or try to go forward without being in the gear, if yes then it is sounds like time to change clutch plate or pressure plate, you can't check it yourself, need a mechanic

-Did you remove the rotor...?
-If so. It's off. You need to put it back the way it was.

If you don't remember where it point to. Here do the following step.

1. Use a rechet and socket to turn the crank pulley by hands untill you see a mark line up the arrow on the pulley then stop there.
-remove spark plug #1 and take a look to see if top the piston is right there or not. If not do one more turn and check (they call top death center)
-Now remove the rotor cap and line up the point to cylinder #1 plug wire on the cap, tight everything down and
put the cap cover back on. You should be good to go

When your Honda cuts off there is alot of reason it does that,one possiblity it doesnt see a crank signal and its breaking down,or the cam signal both of these are in the distributor, or the rotor can be slipping out of position,(distributor rotor). or the ignitor breaking down,to a ignition switch the electrical componenet breaking down,to even a plugged fuel filter causing the vehicle to starve for fuel.Just for maintance concern replace the fuel filter.3_25_2012_11_22_31_pm.jpg

You did not mention what engine you have, but on the vtech engines, the valve noise is usually a result of a worn camshaft and lifters. No adjustment will make it any better.

Window fuse's and relay's may be up under driver or passenger side dash or behind glove box, under the hood and even under the seats, and finally on the ends of the dash. All passenger power windows and locks are controlled thru and get power from the master control switch on the drivers door.

Drivers door window gets used the most so it could be the motor, window switch, relay or fuse.
Could also be a broken wire in the rubber boot going from the door to the body. You will have to eliminate each till you find the culprit. Check that all switches return to neutral when released.
The motor and the relay are the most likely to cause this problem. Try swapping the relay with a working window relay. If it still doesn't work, remove the door panel and remove the window motor.
Turn the motor shaft in both directions by hand several turns. Then plug the motor in and see if the switch will now run the motor. Sometimes that's all it takes to get it working again. I have had to do this with brand new motors. If voltage is not present at the motor connector, either a bad switch or a broken wire exists. Make sure to check for voltage coming to that windows switch. Actually, GM use's a circuit breaker type relay for each window and one fuse for all the circuit breakers.

Try this....
Open the door, turn the key to the ON position without starting the engine and everything that makes noise is off. Lean down placing your ears close to the bottom center of the door or at the speaker grill. Press the window switch UP and DOWN. Listen for the window motor. If heard the drive is damaged. If not heard, turn key off and locate and replace the relay with one of the other window relays. Check window again. If it works now, get a new relay. More often than not, removing the motor and turning it by hand will get it working good as new. I have had to do that with Brand New motors! So try it.
If all has failed, with the door panel still off, check for voltage at the motor connector when pushing the window switch. No voltage means its the switch, especially if its a auto down or up switch.

You would think yes but I doubt this. I have found that manufacturers change the wiring harnesses almost every year. The connectors would fit but there is no way to be sure if they are connecting the correct sensor and wires to the ECU input and output. You could ask a Honda Dealer or shop and they could compare the part numbers. Somewhere on those wiring harnesses there will be a part number and if the part numbers match then yes you could. The major issue is in the actual ECU connection. Again, those connectors could work but because you don't have anyway to verify the wiring by markings this is not a good idea. Other than using that harness to provide wires of the proper size to replace sections of the harness being replaced I would not try a straight up trade unless the dealer confirmed they are interchangeable.
