    dead crv

    I need help, I just replaced the engine in my 04 crv. the motor is a salvage with only 24,000 miles. The motor came complete with all wiring, exhaust and intake. I just had to use my old accessories. the car will crank, but no fire, plenty of fuel smell. Pulled a plug and it was wet with fuel, tested for spark but saw none. Dealer said i might need to have the computer reprogrammed. any help? I was hoping for plug and play.

    MJC, the K-series doesn't have a distributor. It's coil on plug ignition, which means it just has a cam angle sensor. Also, the ignition timing is done through the sensor, so unless you installed it upside down (pretty much impossible), the timing is set by the ECU.

    The dealer is right, you need the ECU reprogrammed. Each ECU is locked to an RFID chip in the owner's key. If the ECU doesn't get the right signal, the ignition system won't fire (hence the fuel, but not spark). Either reinstall your old ECU, or have your car towed to the closest Honda dealership and have them program your ECU to the key (only a dealership can do it, they have the right computer). Make sure you have all the paperwork for your car and engine so you can prove you legally bought the motor. The entire point of this system is to prevent auto thefts. Older Hondas are known for being really easy to steal and this was Honda's response.
