Parked my Honda Civic (1997 stick shift) in driveway at a slight forward downward slant. Two days later it wouldn’t start: dash lights come on, get high pitched noises from engine but no start. Tried for 2 days, same results. Ambient temp is in 60’s. Had routine service 2 weeks ago and it was running fine.
Tow truck driver tried it, got same results. Had it towed a mile to mechanic (front end elevated while towing). Mechanic called to say it started on first try for him but seemed to be running rough. He checked it over and now has come up with 2 or 3 things it may be but isn’t really sure.
Mechanic Is going to replace the ECP (?) to start with but is going to be going at it one part at a time.
Any ideas on what this might be so we’re not throwing $$ at it? Thanks for any thoughts.
