    ok, i have a 91 accord and all it will do is crank and not start. i replaced the thermostat and went down the drive way and died, then i geuss pop started again and then it acted like it ran out of gas and died. it has a full tank of gas also. so then all it will do is crank but not start. unlike a lot of post i have seen where it starts sometimes and sometimes it wont, mine just wont start. i replaced the

    ---MAP sensor
    ---starter
    ---main relay
    ---all the other components in the control box where the MAP sensor is


    im thinkin maybe my distributor went to hell, but it still cranks like normal.

    please i need answers
    thank you:(

    Have you checked to make sure your getting fuel to all injectors. Making sure your getting spark to all the plugs. ????

    Fuel fire and air starts a motor. You got power . No fuel or fire.

    Getting any cells.

    easy

    you need to consider battery voltage, and the alternator. those are the most common problems.

    Otherwise you could be looking at something like a cracked head or blown head gasket.

    Oh yeah, dont forget the fuel pump.

    Check if the ground under the thermostat housing is connected.

    Im with the basics. You still havent said if you have spark and fuel. Those are the best places to start if you are cranking and not starting. If you have fuel and spark then I would take a look at the cam crank sensor. Start with the basics so you dont spend a lot of money on parts you dont need.
