Bought the car with 110k on it, it's current sitting at 135k. PO said the timing was changed around 80k (probably not true).
The car had been idling poorly at startup, and would occasionally die shortly after starting, and sometimes even after warmed up when at low speeds (stop signs, red lights, etc).
It happened form time to time, but it always restarted and we just dealt with it. On the way home from the pub last week it died immediately after accelerating off a stop sign and would not restart.
Fuel pump primes, no spark at plugs or coil. The rotor on the dist cap is not spinning when I crank the motor, so I can't get it properly orientated to remove the cover to check the ignitor. The face that the rotor isn't spinning is leading me to believe the TB is broke. I really don't want to get balls deep into removing the TB cover to determine if it snapped. Is there a shortcut check method? Unless there is something unique to these Honda engines, my thinking is that rotor should spin when I crank if the TB is intact.
