Question about 2002 Acura RSX

Open Question

My 2002 Acura RSX cranks but won't start. Good fuel pressure but getting no spark.

The car has not been driven in a couple of years. I got it from a police auction and had to have the code reset at the dealership to match with the key before I could get it to even crank.

SOURCE: No spark, no start

There are typical problems on the Tegs, you should check your main relay, it is underneath the steering column area, look for 1x2 box, might be drown or black. Pop it open and see if there are cracks on the solder, you'll have to look real close. If there are, find a buddy that knows how to solder and redo them. Remove old solder and replace. The next thing you should check is the distributor. This symptoms for the distributor is well no spark, usually after it's been driven, it dies then no spark. good luck

SOURCE: acura integra rs no spark no fuel pressure

Could be the main relay. It's behind the dash up above your gas pedal. Look for a gray and brownish box with one large plug in it. Should be easy to find since you don't have cruise control. It will be secured with one 10mm. You can bring it into reach with it still plugged in. Try starting it while tapping on the little plastic box. If it starts, pry off the cover with a flat head screwdriver and re-solder the broken connections. The break in the solder will be on the side with the sharp little things. It will be smaller than a hair. To find it you will need to wiggle it. Have plenty of light. Just hold the soldering tool on the broken one until the solder puddles around it and you're fixed.

The car cranks but will not start. There is good fuel pressure but no spark. Thinking it could be the cam sensor or the throttle position sensor. Any other possible causes for the non start

Yes, check your plugs and wires... the throttle body and also check all of your vacuum hoses as well.

Pull one or more of your spark plugs and check to see if they are dry or damp with oil. This could be the result of bad rocker cover seal and or the seals around your spark plug chambers.

When attempting to start the car, if it turns over but no spark, then check plugs and wires, if you hear a clicking noise, then it could be a blown starter motor.

Spark plug blew out now car wont start

sounds like the autoshutoff relay may be controls the ingition and the fuel pump too..if the pump works check for spark by inserting a screwdriver into a pulled off spark plug wire and look for a decent spark between the screwdriver shaft and any ground like the block..if no spark the relay may not be powering up the ignition system..

Where is thr fuel pump relay located on an 2003 acura rsx

post the symptoms. (no start but cranks fine?) what?
the relay only closes cranking. and may not if no spark,
spark is first, after fuse checks.
it (relay) is only a question, if?
1: fuel pressure is zero.
2: pump is silent while cranking.

if you have spark on all cylinders
and the fuel pressure is zero cranking
or the pump has 0v not 12v cranking
then we can show you where the relay is.
or go to and see it for self.
some are in the fuse panel.... (im too lazy to look it up now)

My 97 Acura 4cyl manual trans won't start because spark is not happening at right time.

If you have not removed the distributor, and you are sure you have good compression, it would have to be a broken distributor.
The distributor is driven off the cam.

My 2002 nissan sentra will crank but won't start. i've replace the ecm/ecu, the cam/crank sensor or position, checked the fuel pump/pressure, and it still is doing the same thing. sometimes it

I assume you checked the fuel pressure and it is normal.
Are the spark plugs getting spark when it fails to start ?
Are you getting injector pulse from the computer ?
Any trouble codes stored in the computer ?

2002 Acura RSX type S wont start

If you heard a click when you cranked it, that's usually a dead battery. But, you need to check the oil level. I've had 2 RSX's that jumped time because the oil level dropped too low.

The tensioner on the timing chain is hydraulically controlled, if the oil level drops the tensioner looses tension and the chain jumps time. Its an extensive and expensive repair.
