Question about 1995 Honda Accord

1 Answer

1995 honda accord seems to struggle under slow acceleration

I dont know how to better describe it than my car humps when it is under a small amount of acceleration... with faster acceleration it doesnt do it at all... i have changed the cap and rotor, the plugs and wires, fuel filter, engine mounts... cant figure it out, mostly does this at low speeds, but can also feel it between 80 and 100 km/h as well.... tires are balanced...

    i think that if it was either of those i would be encountering the "humping" at all times, not just during key times in acceleration... but i will check into it... any other thoughts??

    only under low acceleration... and it is not a noise at all... it is the car actually jerking... i thought it was an ignition issue until i changed the entire ignition system... and no fix... so i adjusted my timing... no fix... so i changed some engine mounts... and it still does it...

    under idle it is completely normal... under fast acceleration it is normal... i don't have the slightest clue...

Maybe an axle or cv joint problem?

    does it do it only under accel? does the "humping" noise go with wheel rotation? you say the tires are balanced. does the wheel shimmy during the "humping" noise?

I have a honda accord 1990 ex carburator vitesse engine f20A.. transformed to carburator automatic .but ihave a problem a slow acceleration and high fuel consumption how can i fix this 2 problems?

Check your timing belt, when I changed mine the pick up increased drastically and the mileage was increased. Remember though that any honda will do better if you do a more gradual increase in acceleration.

95 honda accord hard acceleration and bogging down at increased throttle changed fuel pump

Brother Dave, stuff wears out as you well know. But indications don't always point to the obvious. I know it sounds like fuel delivery problem, and new pump didn't fixit, so change the EGR valve. That's Exhaust Gas Recirculation valve. It's part of emissions control and only a couple of small bolts hold it onto the intake manifold with a small vacuum line running to it. A bad EGR will cause the slow pickup speed and won't pull a hill or even a short grade. I believe this EGR change will fix your situation completely. Good day my friend, and happy motoring.

Why when stopped at the light or stop sign, my 1995 honda accord engine looses power and drives very slowly for few yards before picking up power or speed?

Could be a weak fuel pump with the strainer being dirty, the fuel filter could need changed or possibly a leak in the seam of the gas tank. Pay attention to see if it also happens when you make a hard accelerated left turn, or if it is less noticeable when your fuel tank is full. When your tank is full, look for leaks under the car. You should also check for leaks in the fuel line leading from the tank all the way up to the fuel filter. You might get a CHECK ENGINE LIGHT that refers you to the injectors. This most likely means they are thirsty for fuel and are not getting it in the regular amount. Good luck.

I had this happen in two other cars. It turned out I had to replace the heater coil. ( Looks like a very small radiator) often located under the front passenger floor or in/on the firewall under the hood. Hope this helps.

At mid to high rpms the accel shuts off and car slows

change the fuel filter first then if that dont fix it then it's the fuel pump breaking down

Shifts fine when accelerating. Hangs up when it downshifts.

Have a look at your gear box. Confirm that the gear oil is sufficient, if sufficient have a change on it.

Transmisssion shifts slow when going from 1st to 2nd gear.

Try to get some lubrication on any cables &/or linkages to transmission, it sounds like they are sticking a bit.
