The fuel pumps the fuel into the engine from the tank. If you can hear it running , then you need to hook up a pressure gauge to see how muck pressure you have. If you have enough pressure then check the injectors to see if they are getting current from the computer to inject the fuel to the cylinders.

Full drain including the Torque converter or just the fluid in the pan?? Makes a huge difference. Also all fluid levels are checked with the transmission fluid hot. The pan holds about 2.5 US quarts, add two and check the dipstick I=engine running in park, add until it is just at the bottom of the safe zone and drive the car get the fluid hot to the touch and recheck and top off as needed.

I don't know of a TBC light for Honda but there is a TDC... If that's what you meant to type. Its the "Top Dead Center" sensor

The TDC (top dead center) positioning sensor is another name for your crankshaft position sensor. This sensor measures the position of your crankshaft and helps with the proper firing of your spark plugs when you start your engine. The TDC sensor on the '97 Honda Accord is located on the underside of the engine block. Replacement TDC sensors can be purchased at your Honda dealership. This is not a difficult repair and can be done in about 15 minutes.

what engine?
fails hot engine, or cold engine and what engine of the many?
seems dont work in repairs.
ever do a tuneup ever?
sinces it sometimes runs we can check off bad engine. of the 4.
here they are. NO STARTS:
1: loss of 12vdc electric power to the EFI system. (dash lights dim?)
2: bad engine (skip this)
3: bad spark , seems is not an option here, we test all spark at all cylinders using a good new test spark plug.
Its a honda, and we check timing, too,, using , a timing light.
if the spark is good and timing is bad, then the timing belt slipped
if it slips more, the valve in the head bend. end of motor.
sometimes no starts, saves the engine, from itself. so i do spark 100% or better, on all honda's, i do a cylinder leak down test by hand
so i dont MAKE IT WORSE. (it's and interference engine)
4: bad fueling, flooding or starvation, readling spark plug tips tells me
which it is.

3.0L & 3.2L is Non-Interference , no engine stated. so ....

if your d4 light started flashing, then that means a transmission sensor is failing, which causes your transmission to act funny.ill get back to you with a method on checking them and a list of codes to get you started, but dont go and ask for a new transmission. it might not be necessary.

Sounds like the catalitic converter/s are clogged up. This would cause low air flow and low compression. I've seen them so bad that they dropped the compression down to 60 lbs.

its possible that the fuel level is lower than what the fuel pickup tube can get gas to draw it up.also there could be alot of dirt in the filter and needs to be changed.

Here is how:
See Figures 1, 2, 3, 4, 5 and 6
  1. Remove the door pad and inner moisture barrier.
  2. If working on the rear window of a sedan, remove the two upper screws securing the center channel. Remove the two lower bolts (in the door) securing the channel and remove it. On some cars, the two screws are concealed below the weatherstrip.
  3. For sedan rear doors, remove the quarter glass. The entire glass and rubber seal may be removed as an assembly from the door.
  4. Lower the door glass until the glass mounting bolts are accessible. One will be easily seen in the large access hole in the door; the other will appear in the smaller, round access hole. Remove the bolts.
  5. Stand next to the inside of the door. Tilt the door glass and remove it through the slot.
  6. On front doors, remove the bolts securing the front run channel, then remove the channel.
  7. Remove the regulator mounting bolts and remove the regulator. On later models, there are additional roller guide bolts to be removed. Mark the roller guide mounting bolts to ease window alignment later.
  8. For power windows, remove the motor from the regulator if desired.
CAUTION The regulator gear will move suddenly when the motor is removed due to action of the large spring. Keep hands well clear.
