Crankshaft position sensor, assuming everything on the engine side is perfect.

It's got to be the tensioner. Everything else is fine. Hooked car up to Snap On computer to find out about the Crankshaft position sensor. No code there.

Just because there's no code doesn't mean there isn't a problem.

If everything is lined up (assuming you're lining everything up properly) before you run the engine, and everything is lined up after, your tensioner is probably fine.

The crankshaft position sensor is right on the crankshaft, you have to take it off to change the timing belt, and it is crucial to time the engine, so it makes perfect sense that it is causing the problem. Your manual should have a procedure to reset it, so I would recommend following that procedure and reporting back.

The tensioner was the problem the whole time. The Crankshaft position sensor Could cause that prroblem but after consulting with Honda they told me on start up if the tensioner was low on proper pressure then it could cause the belt to skip on that side. Honda changes the tensioner as part of the timing belt service. Eather way the the car is running awsome. Thankx for all the sugestions.
