5th gen h22a4 will not run

I am new on here but have been lurking for awhile. I have 1998 base model lude with the h22a4 the car died on me driving to work and has not started since i have checked the fuel pump, fuel pump relay, ignition coil, ignition module, and timing as far as i can tell all are working properly.
When you try and start the car it will turn over a few times start and die if.If I keep the ignition turned like like im trying start the car it will start and die about every 5-10 seconds

Yeah check and make sure you went thoroughly over your fuel pump, getting spark and all that good stuff. Have you tried cleaning out your IACV and cleaning all the carbon build up. Some Seafoam could possible help but doubt it's your issue.

Re: 5th gen h22a4 will not run

You need to do a little troubleshooting, hombre.

Have you checked to see if you're getting spark at the plugs? To do this, pull each plug wire, one at a time, stick a screwdriver into the plug wire and hold it near the VC or block and turn the engine over, you should get an arc between the VC and your screwdriver. Do this 4 times. If no spark, check your battery and ignition coil.

Is your fuel pump priming when you turn the key? To do this, turn down your ghetto blaster and turn the key without cranking the engine. Your CEL should come on for couple seconds, you should hear a relay under the dash click, and your fuel pump should prime, sort of a buzz/hum noise followed by another click of a relay and the extinguishing of the CEL. If that doesn't happen, check all your fuses, check them again and replace bad ones. If there are no bad fuses, your next suspect is the main relay. Fix it by clicking here.

Check back in after you do that.

/RK

Re: 5th gen h22a4 will not run

i would also check the plugs also, as well as do a compression test... if you lost your compression it wouldn't stay started very long... mine did that when it droped a valve...
