Question about 2002 Honda Accord

1 Answer

Starting problem not related to battery or charging system.

2002 Honda Accord. No history of starting problems with car. Attempted starting this AM, engine turned over fine but would not start. I could smell fuel. After cranking engine repeatedly it acted like it wanted to start and finally did. Once started it ran fine with no loss of power. After shutting off engine it was restarted with out difficulty. Is there a temp. sending unit that could be malfunctioning telling the engine computer that the car is already warm? Any suggestions appreciated. I am letting the car cool off to see if the same problem happens again.

You will, a cold start problem that is.

By American it is the last thing we produce, everything else is imported.

    Sorry you took offense, just stated fact.

    Since car starts buut is hard to, this narrows it down.

    How long has it been since a tune-up? This problem occurs most when tune-up is needed.

    You are smelling fuel because it is flooding with fuel. Check for a air intake restriction (filter,hose,etc.).

    Or, take it to your mechanic, only probable charge you may occur is for a tune-up.

The battery ran down on my wife's 2002 Honda Accord SE. I put a trickle charge on it over nite and battery is charged but the stereo doesn't work nor the alarm system (blue lite is not on). How do I...

Check for a sticker with the radio code inside the glove box. Some dealers fixed a second sticker in the owners manual. If not available, get the code from a Honda dealer, and be prepared to show VIN number, and proof of vehicle ownership.

The Part that is defective is one of 2. First is the Coolant Temp Sensor (Not knowing how much Fuel to give to the Engine) or the IAC (Idle Air Control Valve)... These are the 2 things that effect FUEL getting to the Cylinders to fire. Of course there are other things it could be (Low Fuel Pressure) caused by a air leak in the system or a few others but the first 2 is where I would have started...

2001 accord turns over but will not start

There could be a number of reasons the car isn't starting. Is your check engine light on? If it is, the problem is likely a bad sensor or electronical problem. If the check enginie light is not on, it may be a vacuum line, plugged fuel filter, worn fuel pump, or other non electrical related problem.
