Customer Question
I have a 2003...

I have a 2003 honda with a 3.5 engine.It would not start fuel pump was bad. so I replaced. Now with fuel to the bracket on the firewall it still would not start. No fuel pressure coming out of rail and pressure sensor, so I replaced it. The engine wants to run when I spray starting fluid in it. What do I check next?

Mechanic's Assistant: Are you certain it's the fuel pressure sensor that's in need of attention? What about the fuel rail? Have you checked it yet?

I replaced the sensor,so its new. What I can not figure out is why anything else would be bad if the main problem was the fuel pump in the first place.

Mechanic's Assistant: What is the model of your '03 Honda?

odyssey

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

Yes, fuel pump and fuel pressure sensor replaced

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

I have checked all the fuses there all fine. I'm at lose what to do next..

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

Mary C.Freshfield, Liverpool, UK
