when you refer to the fuel injector relay. Are you refering to the fuel main relay. its about 2 inches by 4 inches correct. up underneath the drivers dash

 

can you tell if the injectors are actually spraying fuel?-are the plugs covered with fuel

what color was the spark at the spark plug?

Have you checked the engines compression?

Also are you abe to check to see if the engine is in time?--just making sure the timing belt has not broke or jumped any teeth

Ok, they said the replaced the fuel pump relay that was located under the steering column. It did not solve the problem so they returned it. He said the plugs weren't wet, however I had him pull #2 and it was oily and smelled of gas. Number 1 plug was a nice brown color. They do have a timing light, but do not know the specs.

They need to check the engines compression and mechanical timing. Remove the valve cover and see if the timing belt marks on the camshaft gears are still all lined up with the crankshaft correctly.

They have now check the timing belt. They tell me they pulled the valve cover and the marks all align. I sent them diagrams of what they should look for. They would like to know where the crankshaft position sensor is located.
Mechanic for Acura: 1smartcarguy, ASE Cert. Technician replied 9 years ago

This vehicle does not have a crank sensor. It is all built internal of the distributor.

 

Does the engine have compression?

If you can tell me what color the spark is, and does the ignition coil have any burn marks around it?

I took the Power Steering O-Ring service bulletin linked from JustAnswer to my Acura dealer, and not only did they no-charge the o-ring, they also replaced the power steering pump at no cost.

HONDA PLATINUM was great. I really appreciate his help. I was ready to trade my new Honda until he told me to wait until I got 3,000 miles on it and my gas mileage would get much better.

Wonderful service, prompt, efficient, and accurate. Couldn't have asked for more. I cannot thank you enough for your help.
