Hello my name is ***** ***** welcome to just answers! I will be assisting you with all of your vehicle questions today. Give me one moment while I review your question and come back with a answer. Please be aware I do not know your skill level or abilities so I will be asking a lot of questions and in a lot of cases we will respond to each other quite a lot before we find a solution. As far as phone calls are concerned that is the system prompting you, not me, and they do cost more money, I prefer text but in some cases a phone call is required. If I don’t answer right away or quickly in conversation I am helping another customer or have stepped out for a moment and will respond as soon as I can. Ok lets get started!

Have you checked power and ground at the pump? Is there a check engine light on or security light?

Customer reply replied 8 months ago
No the check engine light is not on and it’s getting power

Ask Your Own Acura Question
Customer reply replied 8 months ago

Mechanic for Acura: Mechanic01, ASE Certified Technician replied 8 months ago

what about the security light is it on?

Ask Your Own Acura Question
Customer reply replied 8 months ago
No it’s not
Mechanic for Acura: Mechanic01, ASE Certified Technician replied 8 months ago

ok then next step is to check injector pulse and spark

Ask Your Own Acura Question
Customer reply replied 8 months ago
Ok now that I don’t know how to do
Mechanic for Acura: Mechanic01, ASE Certified Technician replied 8 months ago

spark is pretty easy just pull the coil and use a inline spark checker, you want to see atelast 1 inch of good spark and the injectors you will need a noid light, you may be able to get that at the local auto parts store for the tool loan program

What Customers are Saying:

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.

Gary RStevenson Ranch, CA

Thank you very much for saving my daughter and her family a lot of money on her Honda. You are definitely on my list for future help. Thanks, again.

FredUSA

I just heard from my mechanic. You were right...a $45.00 job. THANK YOU!! Your response was received in less than 10 minutes!!

Linda B.USA

Your answers were clear and the diagrams were perfect. Dealer wanted $87 for an hour of labor and even I did it in 15 minutes.

EdUSA

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.

SummerUSA

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

Mary C.Freshfield, Liverpool, UK

This expert is wonderful. They truly know what they are talking about, and they actually care about you. They really helped put my nerves at ease. Thank you so much!!!!
