Great, thanks for that information. Reminder, I have not been paid at this point and won't be until I receive a positive rating from you. At that point I will receive a portion of what you've already paid Just Answer.The problem is a failing starter. This is highly common among the 2.4 liter engine on all Honda models. I credit it to being exposed to excessive heat being under the intake. Replacing the starter should be the fix here. Make sure you have the battery tested as well because over time the amount of amperage needed from the battery to get the failing starter to engage can cause the battery to wear down prematurely. If you have any questions about this let me know. You can go ahead and rate me positively. Don't worry, there won't be additional charges for asking questions after you rate so if you need more information just ask me. Thanks

early I was told it was probably the fuel regulator that was causing the problem

If the engine is not spinning over it would have absolutely nothing to do with the regulator or anything fuel related for that matter. I wouldn't be concerned with that aspect of the vehicle's system. I'm telling you information based on years of experience.
