My car has recently started cutting off or not wanting to start. It will sometimes cut off while going down the road and turn itself on. I have been told it may be a ?Mass Auto Sensor. The car just recently stopped going in reverse and makes a horrible noise if I try to put it in reverse. Does this sound like a problem with a transmission fork?
The problem is the ignition wiring harness, as described in the May 2002 Recall 02V120000. I tried to get Acura to replace it a second time (first time they replaced it was at 75K miles) with no success. Car started stalling/restarting again at 200K miles. I bought the part mentioned in the recall (~$70) and installed it myself - have not had a reoccurrence since.

Most auto parts places (autozone, advance, ect) sell a spark plug rethreading kit, with a steel insert. Basically you enlarge the hole, then rethread it, then install a steel insert. This kit will work, I have personally used it with great success. My own comments are this though: when you are using the cutting/retheading tool pack it with wheel bearing grease to help catch the shavings. Before you install the insert breifly start the car and let it blow any shavings out of the cylinder. Then when you install the insert use the highest grade of loc-tite they have. My kit said to use RTV but I prefer loc-tite. Follow the instructions to the tee and give the loc-tite 24 hours to cure before starting the engine and you should be fine! Good luck!
Check the main wiring harness connection in the engine compartment at the firewall. Many, many older models had that same problem and it may still be a concern. I have had to cut the connectors out of the system several times and install new connectors to resolve this problem. Basicly Jeep purchased cheap connectors which failed often.
does it cut out while driving?? If it cuts out while driving does the speedometer drop to zero even if the car is moving?? try shaking the key while the engine is started and the vehicle is in park...car should die?? If yes is your answer to any of these questions, its a faulty ignition switch. There is a recall for this, call your honda dealer for info and possible replacement!! hopefully this helps
if you run a car out of gas it is sucking what is on the bottom of the tank sometimes things you dont want .. the filter is designed to catch this type **** .. I would change the fuel filter first before anything else because this is your cheapest thing to do and logical thing to do first ..
The problem is your ignition switch. You have to have it changed. If you start your car, dont let the key come completely back, just kind of hold it forward a little; not in the start position but not letting the key completely return to the on position, you will see the car stays running. If you let go of the key and it turns off, your problem is bad and you should not drive it. If it stays on, it still is dangerous to drive, but you should drive it somewhere were it can be replaced.
