Customer Question
I have an 02...

I have an 02 honda odyssey van that would start just fine every time except the other day it cranked for 15 seconds before starting then started fine till the next morning it would crank and act like it wanted to start but wouldn't I tryed to spray starting fluid and still would not start checked fuel pressure and it has plenty of pressure what's your thoughts?

Mechanic's Assistant: How many miles are on the vehicle? And when was it last serviced?

157k was last serviced about a month ago around 500 miles ago

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

Yes I am I have put a new fuel relay in and nothing I have odvicly checked voltage to the pump every thing seams normal but won't start

Mechanic's Assistant: Anything else you want the mechanic to know before I connect you?

I don't know if it's related but the battery kept draning I thought it was just the kids leaving a light on they also left the door open for most of the day and the battery was dead so I put in a new battery

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!!!!
