My 2000 si wont start. It makes the crank sound but wont turn over/fire. Its not battery/starter. I pulled my cel code and it was the cat converter so i am gonna pull it off and change the plugs. Only other thing i can think it could be is fuel pump? I am 99% sure its not timing belt either. Any similar experiences or suggestions?

Update.... I pulled off the cat and changed the plugs and finally got it started, and i can hear the fuel pump humming so it seems to be working. Gonna go ahead and change the fuel filter since i already have it.

Anyone know of a decent cat that isnt to expensive?

Cat shouldn't keep it from starting unless it was clogged.

It COULD be the main relay. Intermittent starting issues and it just so happened when you came back it clicked and you had fuel pressure to start it.

As far as aftermarket cats. I highly advise that you look at the cat to make sure it's not clogged (shine a light through it and see if you can see light on the other end) I still doubt a cat caused it to not start.
