Re: h22a swap wont start!

Did you swap over everything from the old motor that you needed to? Sensors/wiring harness/ecu/kanooter valve/etc?

Re: h22a swap wont start!

okay ...what about distributor?? here is the deal.... you dropped an obd1 h22a into your 5th gen??? yea... did you notice there was no place to plug in that grey plug the goes down near your timing belt cover??? that is for you crank position and top dead center sensors. jdm h22a doesn't have that sensor at the crank... you will need an h23 distributor. it comes out of a 92 -96 honda prelude si 2.3l. this distributor has the sensors in it. you can get a remanned one for 130-. once installed into place you will have wire it up. follow this....

OBD1 <-> OBD2 (motor/distributor swapping)

have fun.

Re: h22a swap wont start!

I guess I shoulda given more info. My bad guys.
There is a obd1 distributor already rewired, swapped over the entire intake and harness, so all the sensors in there are from the old engine. And te vtec sensor.
But not a kanooter valve... Where is it located.

The exhaust manifold is off so when the engine cranks I can see the air and gas being shot out of the exhaust. I'm going to rent a comp to see if I can pull any codes, but the check engine light isn't on so it might be a waste of time

It wants to start... Like I said everything is there that's why I'm so confused

Thermostat ground? ? There is a multi ground wire located near the vtec selonoid wires that should be bolted down with a ten mmbolt on the side of the thermo housing.

Re: h22a swap wont start!

I dont see a ground anywhere near it...
I just manually checked the timing, spark and firing order for all the cylinder
All the cylinders are lighting when the pistons are up.
When i was messing around with the firing order, i switched them around and the it was lighting when the exhaust valves were open, shotting the flames out.
I just pulled a spark plug out after checking all the orders and it didn't have gas on the tip... is there any way the injectors aren't firing when they are suppose to?

Re: h22a swap wont start!

I would say check all ur grounds. Hondas are notorious for not liking to start when things arent grounded properly.

I though coil or module too. So i got a brand new module and the spark was thicker, im going to look for the recite for the coil tonight and take it back tomorrow because its not even a year old. But it did light when the exhaust valves were open because it was shotting out flames.

I checked all the grounds and all the vacum houses at least 10 times so far. Could a corroded wire really make it fire at the wrong time?


I did get a scanner and no codes showed up, BUT it did say that the EGR was unplugged when it was plugged in. Thats the cylinder shaped metal thing with a sensor at the top next to the fuel rail, that has a vacuum hose that goes over the rail right? Im going to swap the old one on and see if anything changes

Last thing i can think of is my wiring of the obd1 distributer with the TDC and CYP sensor....

Re: h22a swap wont start!

Thanks! SO fucing happy!

But i got into the drivers seat and i reved it up and it runs realllly rough. The idle dips before settling at ~800. When i rev it up the MPH also goes up a little. and it just sounds rough... idk why there isnt any noise on that video, probably covered the mic.
