      It could be the fuel pump relay, it's very common on Honda.

      You replace all front or upstream oxygen sensors at 100,000 miles
      or in your case when they fail

      Leave the rear sensors

      If you raise up the vehicle & put it on jack stands you can
      get under it & unplug the sensors

    Can the timing belt be changed without removing or loosening the bolt to the crank shaft?
    Had my timing belt replaced. Drove away from repair shop and the crank shaft cracked where the bolt screws in. Mechanic said he did not remove or loosen the crankshaft bolt and did not cause the problem.

      There must be 2 dozen You Tube Videos you can watch

      I just watched 4 of them

      The 19mm bolt has to come out of the crankshaft & the
      pulley has to come off or you can not get to the
      lower crank timing belt pulley to get the belt on & off

      So they lied to you--you sort of know that I guess

      Watch the video

      Now the motor comes out & the crankshaft gets replaced

      I guess your next move would be a attorney.let that person deal with
      the shop I would suggest you don't have any contact with them

      I once owned a shop,so I won't take sides,I know how it will go from here
