Tip & How-To about 2007 Honda Accord Sedan

If u drove your car over a puddle...

If you drove over a puddle, just before your vehicle died, the water could shorten the ignition wires. CAUTION: Never touch the ignition wires, coil or distributor when ignition is ON or the engine is running; and be careful, engine is probably very hot! Switch the ignition off, open the hood and check the spark plugs wires (check the picture), distributor and spark plug caps. They shouldn't be wet. If they are wet, turn the ignition off. With the ignition off, dry the ignition wires, distributor and spark plug caps with a clean rag or tissue. Now try to start engine with fully pressed accelerator pedal because your engine may be flooded with gas.

I have a 2001 Grand Marque with 151437 miles on it and never had a problem with it. Recently I drove through a very large rain puddle and now my car sputters and accelerates slowly. Oh and the check engine light comes on. I took the car to a service station and they tried to tell me I needed a oil change and air filter, I just had that done the day before I drove through the rain puddle. They then said I needed a fuel filter. I just had a NEW fuel PUMP AND FILTER PUT ON TWO MONTHS AGO. SO HE THEN SAID I needed points coils and a throttle box to make the check engine light go off. MY BROTHER AND I THINK THATS BS, I NEED SPARK PLUGS AND COIL PACK only. WHATS THE REAL DEAL?


It seems to me youre being taken for a ride, if the problem started when you drove over the water puddle then that means that some water go into a key component somehow, perhaps the fuel tank itself or an electrical component. I would stay away from that shop and try to replace the fuel in your vehicle, if its possible for you. also try to take it to autozone if you can, they wil plug the scanner to your vehicle and tell you why the engine light is on for FREE! Good Luck.

The starter must have been bad due to the water.

Bad PCM or ignition coil.

Corroded battery cables.

The Problem is the Distributor Cap and Ignition System. If you get water on these Components it will Instantly Kill the Motor. It will start back after these Dry out But, This will not Remedy the Problem. Your Mechanic needs to check the Ignition System and the Plugs and Wires and see if there is not a Crack somewhere that is allowing Moisture to Enter the System. Locate this Leak and this Problem is Gone. Please Rate my Response, I need all the Help That I can Get! Thanks!
