Question about 1991 Honda Accord

1991 Honda Accord Tries but won't start

Last night my Accord stalled while driving it.  I was able to restart and drive for an additional 10 miles before it completely stalled out.  It wants to start, but as soon as I let go of the key it stalls.  It has bright headlights and seems to have good power, which eliminates the alternator.  If I hold the key in the on position it will start and respond to the gas peddle. I know this year had issues with the main relay.  I need to figure out the next step to determine if it's and electrical or fuel issue.  Any suggestions?

    Thank you for your input. I initially thought it may be the main relay. It ended up being the ignition switch. What gave it away is when the key was in the on position, there were no dash lights. When I would hold the key in the starting position it would stay running. As soon as I let go of the key it would stall out. I hope posting the resolution to my problem may help someone else experiencing this problem.

Hi, I think it is your main relay. It is a major problem when the car get really hot inside. One very hot day last july my 1991 accord wagon would not start. Left it sit till the next moring(cooler temp). It started right up. Check out rockauto.com. They have the cheapest $ on new main relays. sd

Car stalls when driving and doesn't restart right away


Fuel filter changed recently? If it just started this & you filled up somewhere you don't normally fill up, then I'd try some "heet" additive or similar to remove moisture from gas tank, just in case that's the problem.$5.00 test.

Honda accord 1991 model


Sounds like it's burning oil-how many miles on the engine? If it is burning oil, the plugs will not last too long before they have to be replaced or cleaned, due to deposits left on them by the oil. How often do you have to add oil (how many miles do you drive before you have to add a quart?) It probably needs an engine overhaul. Countrycurt0
