Customer Question
It wont start, when...

It wont start, when i refilled it with fuel the fuel was contaminated with water. i've drained the tank of fuel (it was extremely milky) replaced the fuel filter cleaned the fuel lines, got some injector cleaner an refilled it but still no start? the battery is working fine and the fuse for the for the fuel pump seems to be fine

Mechanic's Assistant: Is the fuel filter an external one, or is it inside the tank?

External

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

2000 crv

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

Yes. i have replaced the fuel filter, cleaned the fuel lines (with an air compressor) (the fuel that was drained was extremely milky) i've replaced the spark plug and checked the fuse and the wires for the fuel pump they seem to have good voltage and fuse wasn't blown.

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

My car was working completely fine before the contaminated fuel

Hello there,

Your fuel rails etc probably have the bad fuel in them.

Can you get a can of "start ya bastard" or car cleaner and spray some into the throttle body. Then it may start, it may need a few goes.

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
