I ran my car on E and ended up getting bad gas.
I drained the tank and the pump is still working fine. Put seafoam it in. And filled up with fresh gas. Replaced the fuel injectors, new coil towers, new sparks plugs and new battery. And it will not start. It actually sounds weaker trying to turn over. Idk what else it could be.
HELP
Yes I know I was a dumba** for letting it get on E.

I let mine go on E all of the time. Are the lights flickering? Sounds like a power surge somewhere. Maybe check the alternator?

If its cranking slowly you probably have an electrical problem. Battery should have a full charge. Battery cables should be clean and tight. Chassis and engine grounds clean and tight. Does the starter check out ok?

problem diagnosis by replacing parts that you "think" might be the issue is foolish and expensive. take the car to someone who knows what they are doing.

I live in a very small town and no one will touch it here because of the type of car. More so they just dont know what they are doing when it comes to Acura.

Lights are not flickering. It seems like the engine isnt getting power. Like its extremely quiet conoared to normal
