Customer Question
97 accord with 2.2......timing...

97 accord with 2.2......timing belt broke,bent valves,fixed that and had it running,started hard changed fuel filter, now no spark from coil.Is there a fusible link? Car ran fine until we put on the alternator belt. I know that makes no sense . Hoping to get spark again

Mechanic's Assistant: Sometimes things that you think will be really complicated end up being easy to fix with a Honda. The Honda Mechanic I'm going to connect you with knows all the tricks and shortcuts. Are you hoping to fix this yourself?

I used to be a Honda tech. 100 years ago when the new 1980 came out

Mechanic's Assistant: Is there anything else important you think the Honda Mechanic should know about your Honda?

It was parked for over a year

Welcome to Just-Answer. My name is ***** ***** online handle is Honda-Man. I have over 31 years experience repairing Honda and Acura vehicles. I would be happy to assist you with your Honda or Acura question!

EX,LX,DX, Etc?

Is the cam turning? Does the rotor spin when you crank it? Just gotta ask before we get to far into troubleshooting. Do you have a volt meter and if so does it have a dwell or duty cycle setting?

Thanks, Cliff

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

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!!!!
