Have you checked for codes in the computer sir?

Are you looking for possible causes?

Customer reply replied 10 months ago
No I don't have a code checking device. Yes causes and the solution.
Mechanic for Honda: Amedee, Former ASE Master Technician replied 10 months ago

Any anti theft or security lights on or flashing on the cluster when trying to start the engine?

Can you check to see if the engine has spark while cranking?

Customer reply replied 10 months ago
I don't know if I want to continue. It's dark here now and I only have a flashlight. Probably better to talk when I still have day light. Vehicle in a parking lot with no lights.
Mechanic for Honda: Amedee, Former ASE Master Technician replied 10 months ago

Ok, sounds good.

We can continue when during the daytime when your ready.

Customer reply replied 10 months ago
No lights flashing.
It has spark. Sometimes it will run for about 8 seconds
Customer reply replied 10 months ago
Most of the time just barely stars and runs 1 sec
Mechanic for Honda: Amedee, Former ASE Master Technician replied 10 months ago

I would check to see if it runs on starting fluid.

If it has spark, it should run on starting fluid.

Spray it in the hose by air cleaner?
Mechanic for Honda: Amedee, Former ASE Master Technician replied 10 months ago

You got it!

Customer reply replied 10 months ago
It ran for about 8 sec but some times it does that without start fluid and it didn't start right away. Took about 5 tries
Mechanic for Honda: Amedee, Former ASE Master Technician replied 10 months ago

If your not able to get a solid direction but running this test, you will need to hook up a fuel pressure gauge to check the fuel pressure while cranking it over.

Ask Your Own Honda Question
Customer reply replied 10 months ago
I don't have a fuel pressure gauge. How expensive are they? Or can you rent or borrow them?
Mechanic for Honda: Amedee, Former ASE Master Technician replied 10 months ago

They are not too expensive. You can get them on line for cheap. Just be sure it comes with adapters that will allow you to hook up to your fuel rail.

You may be able to rent or borrow them from your local auto parts store. It all depends on why types of programs they have.

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!!!!
