Start with scanning the car for trouble codes, a good scanner will tell you current, pending and history trouble codes. If you already did that, give us specifics of what you found & did and we can go from there.

We have scanned the car and it is not giving any error codes. We have changed the oil, oil filter, spark plugs, spark plug wires, air filter, and the fuel filter. Still having a problem starting.

It sounds a lot like a problem I had with an 89 accord, and I hate to say I never did find the cause of it so I junked it. There are so many sensors that are on these newer engines, it could be any one of them or a combination of a couple of them. I am very good at trouble shooting and repair, but you may just have to bite the bullet on this one and have a Honda mechanic find it for you. Hondas are not my area of specialty and I repair most makes, but you need a specialist for this I am afraid. It could be bad ignition coil(s), but not likely, a bad crank or cam sensor, a bad coolant temp sender or map sensor or idle air sensor or egr valve.

Thank you for you help anyway.
