Question about 1999 Honda Accord
Usually happens after the car has been running awhile (never first thing when we go out). It happened more often during the summer when the AC was on, but now it does it without AC running. It's not overheating.
The emergency flashers still work when this happens (I assume, they click), I am able to brake and put the windows down. When to pull over to restart, it sometimes it takes more than one try, and lately, revving the engine a little.
I see in responses to similar problems, people are told to check the distributor cap. Can someone let me know where that would be on a 1999 Honda Accord LS?
My Check Engine light came on recently, and this problem is occurring more often since then (was doing it occasionally prior).
It does seem to do it more often if I have less than 1/2 a tank of gas, could it be something to do with fuel filter, etc.?
I have also heard that there was a recall on this year/model for faulty ignition switches causing similar problems.
We recently had the alternator replaced, the car had a computer diagnostic check up run...nothing else was found to be wrong at that time. This was happening occasionally, prior to the diagnostic check.
Faulty distributors are somewhat common on civics and accords. best bet would be to get code scanned and report back
