Question about 1995 Honda Accord
I am almost positive that my problem is the fuel pump. As I said in FixYa, I have replaced the computer ("Brain"), the main relay, the key switch on the column, and I already ran the extra ground wires that you mentioned. Still, the car won't start...it cranks, the "Check Engine" light stays on, and no start. After about five to fifteen minutes of this, I can hear the fuel pump turn on...the light goes off and the car starts fine!
Now my new problem...there is no access to the fuel pump under the back seat! I have removed just about everything from the driver's seat to the trunk, and no access panel for the pump...there is one for the fuel level sending unit, but that's it. After a call to some local Honda dealers, I was informed that starting about a year before, the access panel to the fuel pump was removed (oh goody)...to change this pump you MUST drop the fuel tank (just figures).
This repair will be beyond me. I do not have the place or space or proper tools to accomplish this...
So what do you think? Would you say that it is probably the fuel pump??
I appreciate all your help!
To be sure that it is the fuel pump so you won't have to remove it. you can install a pressure gauge at the outlet of the fuel filter which should be in the engine fire wall. just by turning on the key switch to on without turning on the engine there should be a pressure of 32psi or more if not it is the pump. the pump should be accessed in the fuel level sending unit access panel. directly on the bottom of the fuel tank above the sending panel. Remember only humans assembled your car surely humans can fix it. You just have to PRACTICE fire safety when opening the fuel tank. you will see a cylindrical piece much like a toy engine but longer with fuel strainer. remove and replace following the way you removed it. Money is hard to come by nowadays.
