My honda will not start in the mornings specially when cold weather. It took long sometimes 30 to 60 minutes or more. Rest of the day is just fine.

there is no "check engine" light.
Do you
have the same problem?

Or do below Check for spark and fuel

Get a helper disconnect a sparkplug wire or 2 and ground it to the engine -have helper crank engine over-do you have a snapping blue spark? If so-you have a fuel related problem, check the fuel pressure to rule out the fuel filter/fuel pump/pressure regulator and listen to the injector/s are they pulsing or hook up a noid light. No snapping blue spark continue to troubleshoot the ignition system-power input to the coil/coil packs, coil's resistances, distributor pick-up coil, ignition control module, cam and crank sensors and computer Note: If it doesn't apply disregard it

I actually had this very same problem. And after doing a complete tune up: plugs, wires, cap, rotor, fuel filter oil and coolant flush it stopped. Also my main relay didnt always want to work. Hope that helps!
