Engine Mechanical problem
1997 Honda Accord 4 cyl Front Wheel Drive Automatic 175000 miles
The distributor was stolen out of my wife's 97 Accord recently. I bought a replacement from the local wrecking yard and installed it per the service manual (it can't be installed incorrectly due to offset tabs on the drive 'gear').
Unfortunately it still won't start. I get spark at the coil and at the plugs (verified by grounding coil wire and plug wire), the fuel pump comes on and the main relay clicks when I turn the ignition switch to On, there are no blown fuses, and I don't see any other missing parts or unplugged connectors. When I crank it over, it comes really close to starting, like it's out of gas. I put gas in it just in case it was that simple but it didn't make a difference.
At this point I don't know what else to look at. The car ran very well until this happened.
have the same problem?
