Honda Accord Wont Start

Asked by Jun 26, 2018 at 04:08 PM about the 2001 Honda Accord LX

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

bit of testing I know that the main relay seems to
be fine and activating, the fuel pump is sending
fuel to the engine, and there is spark. I can confirm

cracked open the line. It seems to be an issue with
the fuel injectors not activating, because when we
pulled a spark plug it was neither wet nor smell of
gasoline at all. Any ideas on what's causing the
