I have a starting problem with my 1999 Honda accord, 1 in every 50 starts for example the car will turn over but fails to start, I repeatedly turn the key then the crank slows down but still doesn't fire. it happened today at about 12 o clock gone out now and its started first time any ideas what this could be? thanks
An intermittant like you have described can be an absolute nightmare to track down. A visual inspection of the engine management system for loom damage or corrosion, contamination or oiling of plugs. You can connect a data logger onto the vehicle to record any mis-function when it does not start. A OEM scanner may also reveal the fault. Main suspects for me would be crankshaft sensor, camshaft sensor, or engine management fuses or relays.
