I have an on-going problem with my 92 accord not starting, and turning off while Im driving and then not starting back up right away waiting sometimes about 2 hours. It is a manual 5sp. It seems to happen...


The main relay is bad. This is located on the driver side above the fuse panel. What happens is the temerature warms up and the soldier seperates. You can either replace this or re-soldier it. The part number is RZ-0088, you can get a new one on ebay. You will need a 10mm socket to get it out, it is behind the cruise control module.

92' Honda prelude doesn't start


Change ignition module in distributor. If it is actually starting and stopping right away, and the fuel filter is good, it will be the MAF. Mass air flow sensor. But if it was that it probably wouldn't start even after an hour. Sounds more like the module. You can change the whole distributor if that's easier for you. If it was me, i'd get one from a wrecker.

PRELUDE WONT STAY RUNNING


see http://www.tegger.com/hondafaq/faq.html#general under EFI Main Relay (half way down page). Probably Main Relay fault - read the links etc.

91 Honda Accord wont start after it warms up


No, the main relay isn't the problem. Most likely, the high temp made it a bit more difficult to start, then it sounds like it may have 'flooded' (too much fuel, since it had trouble starting right away). Letting it sit for awhile will solve a fuel flooding problem. Make sure the coolant level is where it should be, and car is not due for a tune up. Extreme heat or cold is tough on an engine, and a few small problems can prevent the car from starting in those conditions. How long has it been since plugs, plug wires, distributor cap, rotor, fuel and air filters have been replaced? Just make sure you keep up on the maintenance, and remember. the accord is getting on in years. How many miles? Good luck with the Honda, it's a great car (I have a 91 Prelude and a 92 Accord).

Idle up and down car runs 20 min then dies car wont start 92 pre


Being a retired dealer tech I can say for sure I never ever ripped anyone off ever!!!!!!!! if they say (dealer) they needed access then you did not understand what they had to do and decided they where putting it to you, you go ahead and throw parts at the problem, you may or may not get lucky, I wish you the best of luck, and you Jacko rubbed me the wrong way.
