Honda Accord Check Engine Light and misfire due to contamination in distributor
Honda Accord Problem
Model Year Affected: 1997
Exhaust & Emissions Affected: 2.7L V6
Honda Accord SE
Car cranks but does not start.
Check engine light on.
I do not have a Check Engine Codes Reader / Scanner.
I manually jumped the connector under the dashboard on the passenger side using a short wire. The Check Engine Light blinks 9 times quickly and then pauses and keeps doing the same thing over and over.
I am not sure if that is just a Code 9 or 99 or 999 or even 9999
If you have any idea, please let me know
