Honda won't start

Asked by Feb 27, 2016 at 06:34 AM about the 1997 Honda Civic CX Hatchback

Question type: General

Starter is fine, getting fuel, ecu is fine, spark plugs
are fine. Why won't it start? When starting car it
sounds like it wants to go but it won't kick into life...
Tried tow starting it and it starts but doesn't rev?

Would it definitely be ecu fuses? But ecu is fine

It may be the timing belt skipped a tooth or snapped entirely. Could be the TDC sensor. It sounds like a timing issue.
