Question about 1995 Honda Accord
My 95 accord LX has had the check engine light on for a short time, with no apparent performance problems. eventually when starting the engine would start, then die, after about the 2nd or 3rd attempt the car would start. After awhile, when driving, the engine stalled a couple times, then finally, it now won't start at all. It starts but as soon as I release the starter it dies. Any Ideas?
It sounds to me like a possible fuel delivery problem or a possible power problem. Lets explore the possible fuel problem first then move on to the power. If it is fuel related then most likely it is a clogged fuel filter located under the hood next to the firewall behind the intake half way down close to the passengers side of the car. It is simple to change and just aggravating to get to. That is most likely the problem with the fuel or a bad fuel pump located under the car on the frame rail under the drivers side door. If it is a power problem the most likely candidate is a bad Alternator causing the battery to go dead upon the initial start up of the engine. it requires quite a lot of amperage to run a car such as this and approximately 10 of the 13 volts to keep it running that a typical alternator puts out when charging the battery up as well. Start with the basics like a bad battery and fuel filter then move on to the more expensive things that it could be like a fuel pump or alternator. Most repair shops are able to fix these problems relatively inexpensively or you can find someone in your area that is a "shade tree mechanic" with the knowledge to do this even cheaper. On occasion I have seen a starter relay (if equipped) that can cause this same issue on many other kinds of automobile. I have never had that in a Honda though so I am unaware if that would be a fix or not.
