    usually when that happens it has lost compression. do a compression check on it.

    i have never had to replace a fuel pump and this guy i know has worked on honda for over 30 years has never had to replace a fuel pump.

    [QUOTE ]got to start with the basic check for fuel and spark

    he says it starts just gotta pump the gas that means its getting spark and fuel.

    Try checking your distributor as it can be intermittent result from wear and tear and high temperature may cause it to fail temporary. Delivery of fuel into engine and it could be fuel filter or worse fuel pump.

    check to make sure ur fuel pump is priming properly, my turbod b20 vtec eg had a warlbro 255 fuel pump and it had the same problems turn ur key on untill the cel light turns off then turn it over and if you still have to pump it then have it checked
