Customer Question
2001 Honda Accord LX...

2001 Honda Accord LX. 3 liter V6. The car normally runs

Mechanic's Assistant: Are you fixing your Accord yourself? What have you tried so far?

Sorry I pushed enter by accident. I'll start over. 2001 Honda Accord LX 3 ltr V^. The car normally starts just fine except, sometimes after a heavy rain or when there is a lot of moisture in the air, the engine will crank but it won't start. after cranking for about 10 minutes I let it rest for approximately 30 minutes and it starts and runs fine. I also have a mildew odor in the car but cannot find any wetness under the carpets, in the trunk or in the sun roof compartment. I am not sure if these things are related.

Mechanic's Assistant: Have you checked the fuel supply? And are all the spark plugs working?

Yes those things are fine.

I just heard from my mechanic. You were right...a $45.00 job. THANK YOU!! Your response was received in less than 10 minutes!!

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
