Short version is my 2 litre automatic 1995 Jap import Honda CRV conked about two weeks ago and I can't get it started since. My mechanic can't find the cause. So I need a mechanic specialising in Jap import Hondas or really good advice!
Specific details are:
I was waiting for my neighbour to open his electric gates with the CRV running and in drive. I let up the brake, the jeep drove a tiny distance and just as he used the zapper on the gates the CRV conked. I don't know if the zapper could have had anything to do with it but, if not, it was very coincidental timing!
Took it to the mechanic and he's checked everything he can think of but it still won't start. The engine turns over but there's no spark. Mechanic's only suggestion is to try a new distributor but I was quoted €505 plus VAT for that which is too much for something that's only a shot in the dark.
I've tried to find a diagnostic connection but failed. I don't even know if there is one in that old a CRV.
Does anyone have any help or advice or contact details for a Honda mechanic?? I'm in Newport, Tipperary.
