Honda CRV, 2005 4 cylinder, automatic, skips when trying to start

Asked by Jul 01, 2018 at 11:48 AM about the 2005 Honda CR-V

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

Hi CarGurus community,

My aunt has a Honda CRV, 2005 4 cylinder, automatic, 2.4Liter. For the past
several months it has skipped when trying to start it (not like a battery issue
but almost like its not getting enough gas). A mechanic told her that it was
the spark plugs. She couldn't afford his quoted price so I changed them for
her along with one of her spark plug coils that appeared blacker than the
others around the shaft. It seemed to solve the issue for a few weeks without
skipping when started, but the issue has now returned. The same mechanic
told her it might then need a new head gasket, but again cant afford his
price. Can anyone give a suggestion what it might be.

Thank you, thank you thank you.

Nate
