trouble with car starting

Recommended Posts

Start with checking your timing belt for breakage and if you have spark. Broken timing belt/skipped a tooth timing belt and distributor failure are the two common culprits in Honda engines turning over but failing to start.

This could be a fuel-related issue. You will need to perform the fuel pressure test to see if the system has fuel pressure at the fuel rail. So the simple way to find this out is either spray some carb cleaner. Also make sure none of the fuses are blown. Then check the wiring at the ignition switch. The white wire should have power at all times, and the black/white wire should have power with key in start position, if only the white has the power, then the ignition switch needs to be replaced.
