I've got a 99 Honda prelude base model that will crank for awhile and start for maybe 2seconds and die. I've replaced the engine with a older model and swapped over all the necessary components front the old engine. I've replaced the efi main relay and also the fuel pump
. Checked timing, adjusted valves, checked distributor for proper timing.
JA: 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?
Customer: Yes, I'm actually a Nissan master tech and see master tech but I'm completely stumped on this Honda
JA: Great! What have you tried so far?
Customer: Replaced the main efi relay, replaced fuel pump, cleaned and retightened ground on thermostat
housing. My battery in the vehicle is completely dead so I'm jumping it off using a battery booster box.
JA: Lots of things can cause problems with the battery. The Honda Mechanic will know what to do. Is there anything else important you think the Honda Mechanic should know about your Honda?
Customer: Not that I can think of
JA: OK. Got it. I'm sending you to a secure page on JustAnswer so you can place the $5 fully-refundable deposit now. While you're filling out that form, I'll tell the Honda Mechanic about your situation and then connect you two.
