Hi all, I'll start with an apology for the length of this post. First, the problem, then some history. No matter how long I crank it over, and irrespective of engine or ambient temperature it will not fire. I can bump start it no problem. My drive is on a slope and so I just turn the ignition on, let the handbrake off, let it roll a bit and then drop the clutch in 1st and away it goes. It will also start with easy start. Once it's started it runs and drives without any problems. Now a bit of history. I've had the car for about a year (bought it from an auction). It was never the most eager starter, but would always go after about 7 or 8 seconds turning over. The first thing I did was change the fuel filter, using a genuine Honda one. That was about 8k miles ago. After that things improved a bit but then slowly got worse again. Then one day I couldn't get it to start and called out the RAC. The man put his laptop on it and said there wasn't anything showing up but the battery looked like it was on its way out. He got me going with easy start. I bought a new battery and things improved for a while but then got worse again. Just after Christmas I had to get the RAC out again. He checked it on the laptop said there were no problems showing. He checked the fuel pump pressure which was OK. Got me going with easy start. I then had a problem with a leaky injector which I fixed and after that things were OK for a while, but over time the car became increasingly reluctant to start. Then I noticed I had another leaky injector. Not the same one. Before I got round to fixing it I had to go to Wales from Kent and then on to Blackpool before returning home. When I got back I noticed that the car seemed to be starting much more easily. About a week later I fixed the leaky injector and to my amazement the car began starting instantly. Finally cracked it I thought (WRONG!!!). For about 3 or 4 weeks the car was starting perfectly but then over a period of time I noticed that starting was taking longer and longer. Then the alternator packed up and I put a new one on and got a new Honda battery from HH at the same time. I did find that by just letting it turn over and over it would eventually fire up but not any more. I've checked for leaky injectors and have just cleaned the EGR valve, the MAP sensor housing and the butterfly housing but it has made no difference to the starting problem. After the clean it's running better than ever once I get it started. It doesn't smoke, it pulls strongly and there are no flat spots. So before I check it in for some diagnostics I thought I would consult the learned brethren of the forum. Am I missing something obvious?
