I have a 93 honda accord dx standard transmission/4 cylinder yesterday after the car was parked for a month i started it up drove about a half a mile it sputtered and died. I couldn't get it started. I went back today it startted and i was able to get it home . I was acting like it was not getting fuel when i gave it more gas it wanted to die around 3000 rpm's.when it died i couldn't get it started. This is my first honda, i have read the relay switch problem and can't find it. should i change the fuel pump and filter? I am at a loss on a limited budget and don't know how to check the fuel pump and filter

You will probably be ok for a while if you tow it, fix the leak, and change the fluid and filter. Honda makes a pretty tough transmission. Depending on how much destroyed clutch material is in the pan when you change fluid will detrimine how long it will last. Make sure yu use the correct fluid in it. Wish you the best. Hope this helps, and please rate me highly.
if you turn the key and engine fails to budge ,are you getting a clicking sound as if their is life from your startermotor ,if so maybe your solenoid is sticking which is part of your starter. give it a tap with a hammer .if it doesnt cure the problem than your starter is faulty. or even select nuetral on your transmission and try then.
Check the distributor by letting the car run and tug on the wiring and see if the car acts up. Under the thermostat housing is a wiring harness, I've seen coolant drip on the connector of the O2 sensor and cause this problem too. The main relay is the switch you're referring to. It's located under the dash of the driver's side to the left. I've definitely seen these go bad. Use a test light on the hot wire to the fuel pump. Have an assistant turn the key in the "on" position and see if you have power there. Let me know what you found out so I can hopefully give you more things to check out.
