Have you ever had to change it before? Well I budget car like 3 months ago. And was told it was a rebuilt engine so I don't know if its been change or not Mechanic's Assistant: What year is your CR-V? 97 Mechanic's Assistant: Are you fixing your CR-V yourself? What have you tried so far? Well I ve change the fuel fuel under dash and thats bout it so far I've just been trying to research wat the problem is before I get dirty lol Mechanic's Assistant: Anything else you want the Mechanic to know before I connect you? Check engine light was on when car die and after I change the fuel reg. Fuse it went off if that means anything

Don't have phone on me1997 Honda CRV just bought two months ago I was told that it had a rebuilt engine but I was driving down the road everything was good check engine light came on kinda ignored it for a little minute and then lost all power car won't start now it turns over but it won't start

No problem, This way is fine. You can take the oil cap off and see the cam , Have someone crank the engine over and see if you can see it turning. That is an easy way to tell if the timing belt is broken. Also remove a spark plug and put it in the wire and see i9f there is spark. These can have distributor problems as well as timing belt breakage issues. IOf you have a compression gauge you can check if the belt is broken as well. These engines are fairly simple So fixing them isn't usually a big job. If you have a scan tool Check the code and tell me what it is that will help point us as what to check as well.

No I haven't went down to check all the checklist yet I was trying to get some research and information on it first before I started getting all into
Automotive Expert
Ok, Lets start with checking the code that turned the light on. Most auto part's stores will loan you a scan tool.

Oh yeah sorry I forgot to include this but I change the fuel regulator up under the dash and not took off the check engine light
Automotive Expert
If you didn't reset the light or disconnect the battery the code should still be in the memory .

Okay I'll reset it in imma go get a code tester and do all that and then message you back
Automotive Expert
Great, let me know what you find and we can figure out what happened.
