I have a 2008 Element EX where the car does not want to start. Engine turns, and battery is good, but engine just turns. When I had it towed to the Honda dealer, they found nothing?Any thoughts?

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

Had the oil changed at the Honda dealer and problem started the next day. When I checked under the hood the mechanic had not put the oil cap back on. After I had it towed back, dealer said it was low on oil and safety feature dd not allow engine to catch. Happened again today after 2 days of no problem. Any thoughts anyone?

sounds like the dealer is full of it. low oil does not cause it not to start. you may have a relay going bad? you may have a fuel pump going out? its hard to say, its gonna be hard to test it while its acting up. it sounds pretty intermittent. but if you can check your fuel pressure when the problem occurs and that will either eliminate a few things or give you somewhere to start.
