Question about 1993 Honda Accord
My car stopped working while I was driving today. There was no warning, it just turned off. When I tried to start it again it would turn over, but not stay on. The rpms will go high on the car, but then it just goes back to zero-and the lights on the dash automatically turn off.
I got my car to start back up once after it did this, but then it would not turn back on later.
Sounds like fuel pump

I just had this happen, too. It was very intermittent, occuring once a week or so. When it failed, it would kill the engine and tach drops to 0 RPM. Sometimes, the engine would come back alive within a few seconds (like ththing happened). Other times, it would die for 10 minutes to a few hours.
I replaced the distributor (which includes the Ignition Control Module) and I am hopeful that is the fix!!

A few things to check:
Wrong spark plugs installed - causing too many misfires
Timing problem - the ECC (Engine Control Computer) will give up after a short while if it cannot get the engine to operate in correct time
clogged fuel filter
clogged air filter
clogged fuel strainer
worn distributor cap/rotor
failing fuel pump
faulty ECC (Engine Control Computer)
ignition coil failing - the ECC will stall the engine if too many misfires are detected.
wireset - faulty spark plug wire(s) causing too many misfires.
faulty fuel pressure regulator
EGR valve faulty
If the engine is misfiring alot, it will **** the resulting unburned fuel out the exhaust pipe, so check for this as well.
