Engine Performance problem
2000 Honda CRV 4 cyl All Wheel Drive Automatic 180000 miles
i have a car that will not start. I tried everything
first checked and replaced spark plug. Then replaced distributor, then still not start. Then I changed starter with no result. Battery tested fine. Then I went on alldata read a tsb which said the exhaust valves recede into the cylinder head. So I replaced the heads, put the timing belt on, and set the timing. Checked firing order it is 1-3-4-2 and base timing set it to 16 degrees TBDC. Also advanced timing as necessary and then recently checked fuel pressure with in specs. Fuel smelled so rich, shooting too much fuel. Was told to check exhaust problem. Disconnected the exhaust and noticed engine backfiring, and fire coming out of the exhaust manifold. Yet I thought it would start the car. No luck, no start. Please explain problem. Can't figure it out
have the same problem?
