Hi my name is ***** ***** I will be happy to assist with this today.In some cases I may need more info to assist better.I apologize for any delay.

Double check and make sure all wiring and components were reinstalled properly on the engine.If an issue is found with any wiring or any components installed on your vehicle here this will need repaired or reconnected to resolve this fault.I have seen where this can be the cause in some cases when a major repair like this has been done.

If more help is needed, use the reply tab to continue our conversation. If no further assistance is needed, kindly rate my service,your 5 star rating is appreciated.You can rate at any time and we can continue to work on your question as this will not close out your question.Keep in mind in some cases it can be difficult to fully diagnose or help repair your vehicle without seeing it and I work on delivering the best possible answer from what I see to work with.

Thanks Pete

I apologize for the delay as I was offline when you replied.

Are you able to observe the engine rpm signal on the scan tool when cranking over the engine to see if there is an rpm signal at all or if it is stuck at 0?

Customer reply replied 1 year ago
not able mostly cold starts without touching fuel today pressed fuel would not start
Mechanic for Honda: Pete, Auto Service Technician replied 1 year ago

This is a difficult question for me to answer myself here.

I will open your question up for others here to see if someone else can assist further on this as there may be others here that may have more info on what to check or do with this issue.I hope you can get this resolved with ease.No need to reply to my last post here unless it is a last resort as it will keep your question locked to me and others will not be able to view it.If you feel you want to continue to work with me on this feel free to reply at any time but keep in mind in some cases it can be difficult to fully diagnose or help repair this without seeing your vehicle.

Thanks Pete

are you getting rpms on the tach when cranking it when it wont start?

Ask Your Own Honda Question
Customer reply replied 1 year ago
Automatic no tach
Customer reply replied 1 year ago
Sorry does have tach but no reading
Mechanic for Honda: david craig, Auto Mechanic replied 1 year ago

ok, usually that means the crank sensor isnt sending a signal to the computer to tell it the engine is rotating so the computer can command spark and fuel

Ask Your Own Honda Question
Customer reply replied 1 year ago
crank sensor
Mechanic for Honda: david craig, Auto Mechanic replied 1 year ago

you need to check for voltage and ground to the sensor then signal voltage from the sensor before replacing it.

Ask Your Own Honda Question
Mechanic for Honda: david craig, Auto Mechanic replied 1 year ago

i said it usually mean the sensor isnt sending a signal. I never said to replace it. you have to prove the sensor is bad before replacing.

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!!!!
