Poor idle?

Hey, so I may or may not get flamed for not putting this in the honda thread, so sorry (maybe).

Anyways, I have a 2003 si. I was driving home the other night, the check engine light popped on, then a few minutes later, it sputtered and died. I didn't notice any weird sounds. Just had a little bit of a rough idle then like I said, it died.

I left it alone today and drove a different vehicle. I proceeded to try and start it up a few minutes ago, and the first time, it ran for probably....1 second and died. Won't start now. Definitely not out of gas. New knock sensor was installed probably....2 months ago.

Anyone have an idea what could be wrong?

Thanks, and merry christmas

Pull the codes and it'll tell you what's wrong.

Yea. I know. Just don't have the opportunity until the 26th. Ironically, I just sold it to my mom the other day. Just was hoping for some vague ideas on what it could be so I can pay for all of/most of it.

That's because you're asking for an internet diag. instead of pulling the codes or consulting Google.

Asking the internet for help diagnostics is fine, when you give them usable information.

"Won't start" and "has gas" isn't even close to being enough information.

Maybe MAF? Of course, can't do anything on the internet, definitely not without codes.

Lol, I'm hopefully gonna get some codes pulled in the morning, I'm fairly confident that it's not getting fuel.
Can't say much more than "it won't start"

The first time I try to start it, It turns over and runs for lets say.....half a second, then died. After that, it won't start up. Battery and alt seem to be fine, so i'm not really sure what else it could be.

Something similar happened to me and it was a fuel filter.

check your blinker fluid

in all seriousness - rough idle is a very vague diagnostic, it could be:
timing belt skipped a tooth but not likely
fuel pump/fuel related components
mass air flow sensor
coolant temp sensor
clogged air filter
throttle position sensor
crank angle sensor
clogged cat
Bad O2 sensor
spark plugs, wires (if you don't have coil on plugs)
battery might be low or alternator dead causing low battery
ECU might be forked
hole in piston/blown ring land/bent connecting rod
and the list goes on

Get the codes, head in the right direction

turn your key on and listen for your fuel pump to wine for a sec or 2 if you dont hear anything it could be your pump

Could be your fuel pump or MAF sensor.

My wrx would have the roughest idle ever. I was scared ****less so I started with the cheapest fix. $6 bottle of CRC MAF Cleaner, and it did the job.

The same situation as yours happened to my friend a couple days ago, ended up being a faulty fuel pump. Good luck.
