Friends 06 Honda Accord lx check engine light came on about two weeks ago. Son drove in to school and when he went to leave it would not start.

Asked by Jun 07, 2015 at 07:13 PM about the 2006 Honda Accord LX

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

The engine will spin and it sounds like it will
start the engine shakes a bit and it doesn't
catch. I was thinking timing chain but with
only 135k it's to soon. But what about
ignition coils?

That car should have had the timing belt changed at 105,000 or 7 years whichever came first. Was that done?

In fact, it might have needed it sooner, did you check your owner's manual?

If you break the timing belt, your engine is ruined. Would take a engine rebuild. All of your valves would be damaged. I had a 95 Honda Accord EX station wagon for 20 years and it got the timing belt done at regular intervals. Your car should not be shaking when starting.
