Ok just minute
Customer reply replied 2 months ago
Nope no pulse
Mechanic for Honda: Greg, import technician replied 2 months ago

Okay need to check the connector to the injectors on the middle right cylinder head .

cam and cranksensor ,these two are signal inputs for injectors ,

Be good to have a scan tool with live data to see if you have engine speed readings .

crank engine does the RPM show 250 +/- 50 rpm .if not try a new crankshaft sensor if all connections and wiring are in good order .

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!!!!
