Crank No Start
Growing weary of troubleshooting. 2000 Integra LS lost all power while driving recently. Since it was towed home, I've confirmed the following:
1. Battery is perfect. 12.7 V.
2. I have a strong spark at the end of each of the new plug wires. I also have 4 new spark plugs. Spark is present.
3.When loosening the nut at the end of the fuel rail, when turning key to "on" position. Fuel gushes out. Fuel appears present.
4. Arrows on cams are pointing up, and the crank pully is aligned with the notch. Timing appears perfect.
I guess this leaves "air." Could I be having problems with the vacuum? I know nothing about this equipment. Is there anything else I could be overlooking? I've checked every fuse as it relates to ignition and fuel. Still, nothing. Am wondering if it could be the ignition immobilizer, CKV sensor (crankshaft speed), or starter.
I really need some help with this as I'm losing my mind, and can't afford to two to a mechanic, let alone pay to have it fixed.
One final thing ... When the car stopped running and I got it back to the garage, I noticed the alternator belt was gone. I replaced that and the a/c belt while I had all the belts off. Also, when I turn the key, the first 2-3 seconds sound normal, but then it turns to more of a "whirring" sound. Don't know if this could be a failing starter.
Please advise.Don't want to waste time messing with dizzy, or coil pack if my spark is good, but some people suggest it could still be a bad coil pack, even though my spark appears strong at all 4 cylinders.
