trouble shooting starting problem-Honda
I have a 98 Honda Civic DX. The last 2 times I washed the car, it would not start afterwards. The first time it started and ran fine about an hour after I discovered it would not start. This time, I washed the car yesterday (it was 50 degrees out) and this morning it wont start. I dont have a problem when it rains, nor do I force water under the hood or into the grill when I wash it.
The problem is not spark, the electic is there (ie not a dead battery, the lights, fan & radio all work) When I turn the key, the "spark" and starter engage, but the car will not turn over, not even an "rrr". We put a small heater under the hood (maybe it will dry out the problem) and I will try in an hour or so to see if it will start, but I am not sure how to trouble shoot this.
I was told that often hondas once they hit 90K will develop a distributor problem, but that begins to act up intermittently. The fuse box is dry, as is the cap. I am really at a loss here. Plugs & wires have been done.
Any suggestions would be appreciated.
