    Replaced distributor - Still have code 8 ?

    The previous owner replaced the distributor about a year and a half ago, 30k miles later i'm throwin code 8. So yesterday I bought a new OEM honda distributor ($380) and installed it.

    Still have check engine light and code 8 (TDC sensor).

    It takes 7 cranks to turn it over and then it runs like a champ.

    I searched threads, and the code 8 responses all seem to be "replace distributor".

    Please help!
    Thank You.

      Actually, i can only see about 16" of wire before it joins all the rest of the wires leading into the fire wall, which is all taped/plastic up, cant see anything!

        Try reseting your ECU.

            Could it be maybe my timing is off some how? Can that cause a TDC sensor to come on?
            The weird thing is once my car turns over after seven cranks, it runs fine !

            When the problem first started happining, every so often when i would start my car it would have a little trouble and the check engine light would come on. So i would drive a little bit, then restart it and it would be fine(no light). But when the check engine light would stay on i noticed the car idled and drove much better then when it wasn't.
