One day I started my car after school one day and it all of a sudden shut off. I tried again and all it did was turn over and all it did was hesitate. I changed the rotary button, ignition coil, distributor cap and the distributor itself. The spark plugs and wires are brand new and I gapped and installed them the saturday b4 that tuesday it stopped running. The shop checked the main relay as well. They said that fire was getting to the distributor but was not coming out, what is this????

um....

We are going to revisit one of the first assignments you did in class. But this time, you will create a website with the information. Your website should also demonstrate GOOD DESIGN. You may use the information you found earlier in the year, or you may search again now that you may have some better ideas since you have created several sites yourself.

Are you getting spark to the plugs? Are you getting fuel. Is your filter clogged? Is your pump working, is the pump relay working. What has been checked? We need sensible info.

So the shop checked your car out and couldn't get it running? Lol... I wouldn't go back there dude.

Did you make sure to push the clutch in while turning the key?

How about dead battery?

You go gas in it?

agreed.


plus if they said that there was nothing coming out of the distributor but it was going to it, you probably got a broken one. I am a Honda guy as well and im guessing you probably bought a used part. so i would try another one and if it doesnt work then.

motor swap :laugh: what motor do you have in it now? D16?

They put a brand new destributor on. My origina mechanic at his shop said it was th main relay, he changed that and the **** car still wouldnt start. My friend's sister honda did the same thing and it was her timing belt. So Im not sure what it is. I got another vtec engine from a 98 ex on the side with 55,000 miles on it. Im just waiting to c what the problem is. I paid 50 dollars for this engine!!!! Think I shoud do a swap???

If you dont here fuel pump cycling...Most likely need a new one, Or fuse could be bad....Have someone else turn the key while you can get close enough to listen better

Why are you guys flaming on his D16? I'm fine with my 230whp mid 12's stock block D16, just add a turbo and you got a reliable 200-225whp daily driver, it can handle more at the track, but my balls aren't big enough to turn the boost up that much.

Actually - with a good coil and a bad distributor that's not all that difficult to imagine (not saying that's the case but it isn't an impossibility...)


Are you getting spark to the plugs? Are you getting fuel. Is your filter clogged? Is your pump working, is the pump relay working. What has been checked? We need sensible info.

I'd simply be satisfied to have the single engine that is in Gossamer to be completely connected and running. :fyi: :laugh:

So the thought of the timing belt wouldnt cross anybody's mind????

if your timing belt went out, could be fatal. i had a timing belt go out on a saturn i use to have and completely ruined the engine.

i have the same car as you. i have a 95. unless your timing belt completly came off your car should still start. if it was messed up you might hear a tapping sound, but if it came off then it might not start but other than that it would start but not run right

well, if you dont hear your fuel pump come on that could be your problem lol

A mechanic told me it was an electrical problem. He said the starter signal fuse blew and that I had a bad wire sumwhere in the harness, but he dosent kno where.

I found out that it was the ECU, Im waiting on a guy that has 1 already programmed for a tubo, Will it b a problem with it being like that or should I let him turn it back stock???

Depends what the tune is, I would go with stock for now, But it all depends on what the tune is. Saying it is tuned for a turbo car doesnt really help...
