Question about 1991 Honda Accord

Car starts but then dies

My 91 honda accord has been dieing on me while im driving. It acts kinda like its out of gas, then starts back up after a minute. So, I changed the fuel filter because I thought it might be clogged. Now my car will start and run for a few seconds then it dies or it dies if you try to hit the gas.

After having it occur on two separate vehicles, focus on the entire throttle body; with key interest in the throttle position sensor.

Perhaps try a fuel pressure tester to see if it's holding steady pressure when this occurs. This sounds like the symptoms of a failing pump however, don't just change the pump. Confirm it by monitoring the pressure. I've seen some guys tape the pressure gauge to the windshield so they can see it.

SOURCE: 93 honda accord fuel pump??

Check the distributor by letting the car run and tug on the wiring and see if the car acts up. Under the thermostat housing is a wiring harness, I've seen coolant drip on the connector of the O2 sensor and cause this problem too. The main relay is the switch you're referring to. It's located under the dash of the driver's side to the left. I've definitely seen these go bad. Use a test light on the hot wire to the fuel pump. Have an assistant turn the key in the "on" position and see if you have power there. Let me know what you found out so I can hopefully give you more things to check out. Send me emails to tiqautoperformance@live.com.

This vehicle from personal experience definitely has a problem with the MAIN relay that's located under the dash are right above the brake pedal. Its a brown box with a plug in it. I believe that's the problem its less than 100 dollars from the dealer its control the spark and the fuel on this car. Good Luck. Contact if you need more help. Thanks for using FIX YA

could be a lambda sensor or coolant sensor, it could also be the ignition coil hall sensor (distributor) or MAF sensor. Coolant sensors are the cheapest but my money would be on the lambda sensor

91 Honda accord continues to die while driving. What would cause the distributor to get hot


Have you checked for fuel delivery issues since car dies while driving? Is the fuel pump operating correctly?And how about the carb? - if the float gets stuck while up there will be an interruption of gas to engine. No gassy, no goey!

91 honda accord wont crank


There is a sensor under the left hand side of the dash that would not allow it to start, provided that you have replaced the electronic spark module inside the distributor first, which is what it sounds like it would be, When you say you replaced the distributor I assume you replaced it complete!

91 Accord Car will initially start then when driving it will die sometimes starts right away sometimes 10 or 20 minutes later but has gotten more frequent about dying and taking longer to start


I have a 1991 honda accord dx that had the same problem. while driving it would just completely shut down. after about 5 minutes it start and run for a while then shut down again getting more frequently. There was a recall on the ignition control module (ignitor) which is in the distributor. call your local honda dealer with your vin # and will tell you if yours was replaced. If not I bought one from parts store for $60 or you could take a chance and buy one from a junk yard. I bought the whole distributor for $20 as a back up.
