    THANKS. Can you please now go to something along the crank sensor, or how to check for codes at home under the I trust what I've done. I drove it home, it ran darn good. I made repairs to radiator,brakes and brake switch. I got a new hi-dollar battery for free. There was not really an issue parts which affected this wont run problem. Please I am a pretty good auto mechanic but my license is as a jet mechanic,so i am unskilled and out gunned,but i can learn my way by you guys.Need lots of tips &tricks. I bet the timing may have moved,thats what i am going on to bed with. I need a clue,a good one. I luv u guys man.DOLLARNAQRTR...@

    As a shade tree guy I swallowed my pride and took the honda in after replacing distributor. Everything was good.I just didnt except the simple fact that I had blow-by. I'm going to do the old liquid glass and try to ge it back to a decent running work car. Thanks for hearing my troubles. We goin quiet........

    I did the the liquid glass in the coolant system. The system was thourghly cleansed prior to going forward. The car is running very well,however it wont pass emissions sniffer. There is relatively no visible smoking ,and nothing noxious to breathe . Now I am curious as to why I find timing at 60 degrees as oposed to 17. I am trying to work it out. Dollarnaqrtr

Did you put REAL HONDA parts or aftermarket parts.....i bet you put aftermarket parts in it...Hondas and Toyotas are very sensitive about ignition parts...ONLY get the real deal....NO aftermarket junk. i did the same mistake with my 89 honda accord. never again...

    Ok i saw that "It Ran good" and " Now it wont run" and " New Cap and Rotor" and "Transferred Wires". next time i will ask for more clarification. With my past experience with Hondas they are very picky about what you put in the ignition system. It just doesnt make sense for it not to start with another problem after replacing the cap,rotor, wires if it ran before. Please post what the problem(s) really was after it gets back on the road. Thanks.

My 93 nissan quest isnt running very good

it is your ignition control module in the distributor

I put new plugs, wire and a cap and rotor and a new fuel filter. was running great until i did this

Sounds like you messed up your firing order. Bring the number one piston to top dead center of the compression stroke and remove the distributor cap. Note which post on the cap that the rotor button points to. This is your number 1 wire. Now you have a reference point to base the rest of the order on. Do not turn the distributor itself and it will run fine.

1/ Have you fitted the spark plug leads in the proper firing order.
2/ Look inside the top of distributor Top (this is not the first time a new distributer cap has very small crack) or the rotor arm is fitting the cap properly. Hope this helps Best Wishes, Malcolm Campbell.

No spark wont turn over

Possible failure of either crankshaft or camshaft sensors. Have you run a scanner on your computer to see if it points to anything? Good luck!

'99 silverado will turn over but won't start. I have a new battery, 6 month old starter, new plugs, new distributor cap and rotary button. I used to be able to turn the ignition on and off real quick and...

I'd start with one of these and move on to the next.


Is it getting fuel? You should have an "in tank" electric fuel pump. When you turn the key halfway (just before turning the engine/starter over), you should hear the fuel pump prime. Easy way to check is to look in the throttle body while someone turns the key to the "on" position. You should see/smell the fuel. You can also listen to the gas tank while the key gets turned. You should hear the fuel pump run.

To check spark, pull a spark plug out, put it back on the plug wire and rest the electrode end of the plug up against the engine or exhaust manifold and have someone turn the engine over. You should see the spark plug firing. Don't hold the plug or wire while doing this. You'll get zapped if it's working ok.

If these both check out ok, then take a look at your firing order. If it's off by a significant amount, it may not fire. I've seen this happen when a cap/rotor/wires were changed and the wire/rotor was not positioned on the correct cylinder. (Most of the time they will at least fire or backfire, but either not stay running or run REALLY badly if the firing order is off.
