    Hey Chris, I have a 2003 Mitsubishi Eclipse GTS 3.0L that currently won't start. Over a week ago i get off of work and it has a hard time starting, it starts then dies, I start it again and is running really rough, hesitation when stepping on gas and other things, so i park it for the night. The next morning me and my dad go back to tow it home, but now it won't start. We have done new cap and rotor on distributor, new ignition switch, new IAC valve, compression is 150 psi across all plugs, 47 psi on fuel pressure, the fuel injectors are firing, timing is spot on, has spark but won't start. We even did starting fluid in the throttle body to no avail, any help would be greatly appreciated!

    I just bought a 1996 honda civic ex with the LX motor, d16y7. It had a strange 500rpm idle and it was trying to die when I'd put it in neutral to stop at a red light. My friend checked the spark and plug 1 had it and died when he pulled out the wire and 2 didnt have it and stayed alive a little longer and then it died and stayed stationary for a week. I even installed a rotator button and dizzy cap, no luck. Entire new distributor and it starts and drives now but still tries to die when I come to a stop in neutral. Either it does die or it goes to like 100rpm and I have to gas it a lot to get it back.

    Hey ChrisFix so I went over my 1998 Honda Civic from Fuel, Air, Compression, Spark, and the last thing my car needed was timing, when I aligned the timing belt and started up the car it still wouldn’t start. Instead, it jumped time again and lil bit of smoke was coming out the intake, what could this mean?

    If your engine doesnt start, make sure to first check if it has any ford parts on it. That would probably be the problem

    Therefore, if an engine is timed correctly, every time we shut off our engine we can expect that cam gear mark stop at the exact same spot? Sorry guys, I'm still trying to learn..
