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!!

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!!!!
