Hi, You need to get the engine mounts especially in this case the front one replaced, the quicker the better as you only end up with more problems if left to long. Please leave me feed back: Malcolm Campbell, Thanks.

It costs nothing to remove the ignition key and then the car won't make any kind of noise...

Have you ever heard the saying "a cobbler's son is the worst shod?" This is true to a great extent but would a man allow his wife to drive around in a car with an exhaust leak knowing how dangerous exhaust gas is to the car occupants, especially if the leak was a quick inexpensive fix?

By being dropped low I assume you mean it has lowered suspension. If that work had been competently carried out it wouldn't contribute to the annoying noise though it is likely to make the exhaust more vulnerable to damage.

While an exhaust and the attachments are relatively simple in theory, in practice due to corrosion, damage and erosion those attachments can be difficult and time consuming to remove.
You need the opinion of an experienced person after he has seen under the car.

charging an ac system by the can is a sure fire way of stuffing it up and blowing hoses
gas is entered by pressure and you need the correct manifold and gauges to get it right
now that you have some in it , take it to an accredited specialist shop and have it topped up properly

I suggest you have no need to worry about this. The conditions may not be right for the fan to "after run"

Check your timing belt, when I changed mine the pick up increased drastically and the mileage was increased. Remember though that any honda will do better if you do a more gradual increase in acceleration.

Check for gas and spark to the engine. I'm thinking a '90 accord might be multi-point injection, although they transitioned about then from throttle body injection to multi-port injection. Either way, you need to check if the injectors are firing and putting gas into the engine. Does the fuel pump work? Is there pressure in the gas feed line?
Usually, a no start is because the engine has lost either fuel or spark. You need to check for both. Use a spark tester from parts store- a cheap and easy test for spark.

If you have a light on the dash, you should get it scanned. Get code and post it. If you don't, disconnect the battery for 30 seconds, then hook back up.

It's time to change the clutch with entire kit. Release bearing, pilot bearing, clutch plate, pressure plate and get flywheel turned. If that bearing flies apart inside your transmission it will leave you stranded and your release fork will be destroyed possibly causing more damage to the transmission housing. It is hydraulic and if the master cylinder is working properly you're not likely to notice any play in the pedal due to release bearing.

If it jump starts good , then definitely your battery dead. Could be that the battery is bad , or your alternator is not charging it while you are driving ( but a warning light would come on ) .
Definitely make sure battery post connections are tight and clean.
Something could be draining your battery while the car is parked , ( light , stereo amp , )
I am assuming when you say jump start , that you mean with a set of jumper cables from another car............ If what you realy mean is bomb start ( roll start ) then we are back to square 1.

I just did this repair 2 weeks ago. Hope it is the same for you. It turned out to be the ignition switch. Not the actual tumbler that you insert your key in, but the switch mounted to it from behind. The part is $40. at Autozone. Remove the lower plastic steering column cover. Remove the plastic knee panel. You will see it screwed onto the the key column. It's most always white. It may function properly but inside this little switch are many contact points that when they fail, cause power to draw from your battery. For instance, you'll be able to turn your radio on and run your windows down even after you remove the key.

You may have an internal transmission problem or clutch issue. If you can shift the car into gear while running without using the clutch pedal, suspect a defective clutch
