Question about 1999 Honda Accord

Car cuts off and gets harder to crank

The car totally cuts off after a few minutes driving and wont crank for several minutes. It turns over but is taking longer and longer to crank. ive had the fuel pump replaced but it still stalls out with same issue. having it diagnosed, i was told i needed an o2 sensor and a relay but after paying for a fuel pump, I cant really afford a process of elimination so which is responsible for this problem and where are the sensor and relay located?

A bad O2 sensor would not prevent it from starting. The computer ignores the O2 sensor until the engine warms up. If the fuel pressure is good, check the engine coolant temp sensor. If that's bad, the computer may think the engine is warmer/colder than it really is and will give the wrong air/fuel mixture.
Coolant temperature sensor testing

SOURCE: my 94 civic just dies while driving.

Try your cam/crank position sensor. Normally if its not working properly the tach will not registor when cranking. You should get at least 100rpms while cranking!

I believe its the main relay u are looking for. This relay controls the fuel pump and spark. Its located under the steering column. Grey in color and usually has one bolt attaching it. Hope this helps.

When i got my used 1989 Buick Lesabar I was told the cadillic converter was clogged which was causing the car to knock and staul out you could only drive it for a short distance when it would cut off and...

This is a model which should get a good attention on all of its parts. You should have a detailed idea on your car's parts, its condition, workability,etc.
So firstly try to figure out any kind of leakages from crank parts, gear/clutch assembly. This is easy to find when the car is parked for long time.
Then look out for any broken pipes, tubes, seals, cracks.
Any oil leakage into combustion chamber, plugs, etc.
Check plugs by touching the car body while cranking!!
Then check the distributor cables and the distributor.
I think this all about your Power lines, fuel pumps.
So please try and rate it!!!

02 suburbsn wont crank, full battery power

I had a similar problem with a 1999 Chevy Astro. All fuses checked out good. Several posts advised cleaning the battery terminals, checking out the ECU to cutting the yellow wire from the ignition switch, check to see if it'll crank on Neutral, and also checking/replacing the brake switch. I simply removed several keys from the key ring, then shot several bursts of air from an air can (some keys are keyed to the ECU to turn off the Security System when attempting to start the engine), then waited several minutes for any condensation to dissipate, then was able to crank the engine to life.

Truck will cut off and not start

Is the security warning light staying on when it fails to crank ?
If so, it could be the chip in your key or the sensor in the lock cylinder.
It could also be the neutral safety switch, or the starter.
Someone would need to check the starter to see if it is getting power when the key is in the start position.

My 1993 nissan sentra 1.6 wont run and check engine light wont turn on,bulb is ok

Could be any of several things. If the crank sensor is marginal and not sending pulses, the fuel pump is shut off. This is for safety. The pump is energized for a few seconds as key is turned in preparation for starting then engine must rotate normally to keep the pump on. If it stops, in a few seconds the fuel is cut off.

My 95 avenger cranks up but when it gets warm it cuts off what is it

Normally the problem is electrical, something gets hot and looses contact. Could be a relay, coil, sensor, or several other components.
When it will not start you will need to figure out if you are missing spark to the plugs or fuel to the injectors to proceed.

2001 lumina turns on-- but doesn't turn over

When that happens again, try moving shifter harder into park, or in to neutral and also try stepping harder on brake pedal & see if it makes any difference.
