no tools...put it in the on position into fourth gear and have a few of the locals give you a push~ you need a new battery and to have the attachment point of the main ground/near the fender/frame cleaned with a wirebrush to insure 300 cold cranking amps and the one to the motor as well-...once you get tooled up~

Yikes, stranded in a parking lot and no tools, it is very difficult to do anything, much less diagnose from here at my desk to wherever you are, not being able to see the car. I know, cash money is tight for everybody, but AAA if you have it. But What you might be able to do is just look, inspect wires, corrosion on battery alone could cause that...you don't say if it cranks but not start or you have nothing at all..if it cranks over it could be so many many things...sorry, maybe one of the guys will be of some help that I offered none but battery cable. And without tools at that..

Yeah, it took me 10 minutes to type that correcting spelling and all but seems the Judge and myself have similar thoughts

I didn't have anything to take the timeing belt cover off. All the other belts looked fine.

It turns over fine to me seems like its not hiting or plugs not firing.

doesn't take much but a 10mm nut driver to pull the cover off and get a load of the slack in the timing belt and the position of the sprockets....might save you some heartache to simply put another timing belt in~

that needs to be done but after a liitle study I found you find fuel filter break it open test for fuel pressure if you have that then most likely be main relay common on Hondas.
