2003 1.7 Lts. Civic, Crank but not star after Timing Belt work
Hi, congrats for what you are doing for so many years helping us. PLEASE HELP!!
I got a 2003 automatic trans 1.7 Lts. Civic Lx, 230k plus miles. Overall condition OK before...
Recently got a leak on crank (or cam, not sure) seal. I only get OEM and (Jap replacement made) cam and crank oil seals, water pump, timing belt, belt tensioner, other 2 belts, sparks.
A friend work on it, but when he finishes car crank but will not start. He mentions to test cam sensor was ok; he thinks was crank sensor. So, I buy a new Denso. Wont star, he says triple check the time and says its ok.
The long story short, he discovered that disconnecting the crank sensor cable the car start (takes a few second more cranking than normal) cars run but can pass 3500 rpm (engine relays. Cheap scanner reads sensor because is disconnected and can read a normal operation because car will not start and runs. Before all this only code was a carbon canister valve solenoid and buy it). Some people mention cars not supposed to start without crank disconnected
Can invest much more on it, but cars its ok (beside that), quite sure is some simple thing (loose or disconnected ground, LoL I am not a mechanic).
Please HELP!!! keep up the good work!!!
