Posted by JustAnswer at customer's request) Hello. I would like to request the following Expert Service(s) from you: Live Phone Call. Let me know if you need more information, or send me the service offer(s) so we can proceed.
Mechanic for Honda: Fixitman, Technician /Advisor replied 1 year ago

Sorry for the delay in getting back with you. If the check engine light is not coming on then it may be something simple. It sounds like the throttle body may need to be cleaned or it just may need a fuel filter or tune up. Did you plan on doing any of this work yourself?

Shit man I hope it's nothing too serious. But it kinda depends on how simple it is. I've heard it could be the distributor or a timing issue as well. Do you think that's a possibility? Bc I really don't want to pay to replace the distributor if it's fine.
Mechanic for Honda: Fixitman, Technician /Advisor replied 1 year ago

It is possible that it is one of those. The hard part is that you do not know the history of the vehicle. If you had a computer scan tool that reads engine data you could see some of the inputs to see what may be going on. I would start though by removing and inspecting the spark plugs and the inside of the distributor cap for work parts.

Honestly man I've never used this site but I really would prefer to call and talk to somebody if possible. How would I be able to get in touch with another expert?
Mechanic for Honda: Fixitman, Technician /Advisor replied 1 year ago

I will opt out and another one should pick it up. You can then request a call if you would like. Just make sure that you do not rate our chat as it will then lock to me and nobody else can help you. I will do this now. Good luck to you. If I can be of further help let me know.

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

Mary C.Freshfield, Liverpool, UK
