Re: 97 accord no start, got fuel, fire
the car did die while driving, just lost power and shut off. Had it towed to honda, they had it 2 days and couldn't find anything wrong, had fuel and fire, belt hadn't slipped. they suggested replacing ecu as a possibilty at 1000 plus. I did spray carb cleaner/starting fluid and gas into intake, still nothing. plugs were completely gas fouled, pulled injectors and it fired off while I was checking them. this is a repeatable process, I have even crimped the fuel supply line line with the injectors installed and as long as the fuel is restricted I can get it to start and run.I thik I am getting too much fuel from the start. I have tested the regulator to see if fuel was passing thru to the vacuum side and it is not. I have a pressure tester but the 97 has no service port. Any ideas? What controls fuel delivery on start up? is it a program written in to the computer or does it use info from sensors and if it does which ones?
I did try a different ecu, same result.
