Customer reply replied 8 years ago
I have spark and fuel and yes the engine light is on the car only has about 90,xxx
Mechanic for Honda: HondaPlatinum, A Technician replied 8 years ago
Ok was the timing belt ever done ? If you have spark and fuel it should start unless timing is off. Is the spark bright blue?

yea the spark is bright blue and timing belt im not sure when it was last changed i just got the car about a month ago or so if the timing belt is fine what would I check for next?
Mechanic for Honda: HondaPlatinum, A Technician replied 8 years ago
If you have gold fuel pressure and good spark the there's a gold chance it jumped time . You need to check this next . It can also be a clogged catalytic converter . Also make sure the rotor is good inside the distributer . If it was missing spark then it would be a coil(which was replaced) igniter or distributer base itself.If it was missing fuel it would be a main relay located under drivers dash. There is also an ignition switch recall but would cause a start and stall condition. If you have good fuel and spark then you need to check compression and a
cylinder leak down test to be sure there is no internal engine damage . These are the next steps.

Hoped this helped.

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

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

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
