      OK thx...just wanted a second opinion. I've already replaced the timing belt and set the timing acording the proper procedure, but it still just turn over but won't crank. I believe it might be the fuel pump or a clogged fuel filter because I smell no gas or hear the pump Therefore I'm gonna replace the old pump with a new one as well as the primary and secondary fuel filters.

      Diagnose your vehicle with a scan tool to determine if there is a stored trouble code in your vehicle that can help you identify the fault to your vehicle’s problem (if the fault in your vehicle’s problem is one of your electrical control or sensor it will show in your trouble code) instead of guessing. Even if your check engine light is off don’t assume that there’s no stored trouble code in your vehicle, to be certain that there’s no stored trouble code in your vehicle you have to diagnose it with a scan tool. You can visit AutoZone or nearby auto parts store for free diagnostic.

      judging by the wat your t stat gage is operating i would say check your thermostat it may be sticking causeing over heating and over flow due to high tempiture coolant basicly overheating and bubbling over

      It is possible that fuel pump shuts down after start up. Did you check the fuel pump relay, may be defective? Or the connectors are loose or contaminated by dust.

    My car sounds like it wants to turn over but it want start. If the timing belt is broke would the grey wheel still turn?
    if the timing belt is broke will the grey whell still turn in the distrubrter cap?

      No. The distributor is driven directly by the camshaft. If the belt breaks the camshaft will not turn.
      10/16/2010 Margie
      I checked the fuel pump and the fuel filter and they both work. And now I know its not the timing belt thank you very much! Do you think it may have been something electrical, its not the starter or the allternator. It wants to start but its sounds like there is something not pushing it over to start? Thank u so much for your help!

    Why does my radiator overflow bottle need filling once a week?
    i have had some leaky hoses changed within last 6 months
    • yboy82

      When you replaced your leaky hoses did you also replaced the clamp that secure them? You can also perform a radiator pressure test to determine if there is a visible leak in your vehicle.

    Check engine light staying on and gas mileage is horrible. Also burning oil.
    I am out of work and need to try to fix what I can. The Honda (95,000 miles) runs great but we are going thru oil and gas FAST! Where can I get diagrams of where these parts are and how to replace? Oxygen sensor, EGR, other?? Would synthetic oil help? Any ...

      first thing is have you hooked up a scanner to see what the engine codes are that are causing the check engine light to come on? first you need to do that just changing things may not even fix the problem.

      if your losing mpg, it could be it needs new spark plugs and wires, could be bad fuel injector(s) could be a bad maf sensor. you need to do some diagnosing before just changing parts.

      sythetic oil might help but if it is burning alot of oil then there could be another engine problem, such as bad valve seals.

      Diagrams for where the parts are you will need a service/repair manual.

    Why does idle pulsate/surge when engine is cold and choke is on?
    idle pulsates/surges until engine is warm
    • CVO

      Does this car has a carbureted fuel system ? When the engine is cold and choke is on, the fast idle cam is activated and opened the carburetor throttle valve wider causing more fuel to draw into the carburetor throat. Hope this help and be safe.

      Speedometer failures on Accord are not uncommon. You need a speedometer head.

      If it has spark and fuel, then that leaves compression (timing belt)... Have you checked for stored trouble codes and have you replaced any parts? Do you have spark at the plugs and fuel to the throttle body?

    What can i do to fix this problem
    my car is fluctuating on the rpm meter to shift and it jerks when the fluctuation gos to high-and then it shuts off- we tried to pop start the clutch and no gas feed
    • Nissan Technical Advisor
      It is possible you have a vacuum leak. The EGR valve might be stuck open and the spark plugs gaps are incorrect. Consider also an incorrect ignition or valve timing

    Rough Idle in Reverse at first start in the morning
    When I start my car in the morning for the first time and put the gear in the reserse, the engine starts to sort of vibrate. It happens when the weather is cold. No problem in the afternoon (no matter if weather is cold or not).
