Question about 1995 Honda Accord

1 Answer

Engine starts for about a second then dies.

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.

Cranks won't start


First you must check to see if engine is mechanical sound by performing a compression test. remove the spark plugs install a compression gauge in the spark plug hole and crank engine about 4 cycles compare readings to all cylinders reading should be around 125-150 psi readings in the 50 psi range possible jumped or broken timing belt. If engine is mechanically sound test for spark at the spark plugs use a spark plug laid against valve cover and have some one crank it over look for the spark to jump the gap. A no spark problem is internal in the distributor.

My check engine light comes on and a few seconds late the D4 start to blink


The check engine light indicates that there is a problem with one or more of the engine sensors (knock, airflow, etc.) this can also include the transmission sensor.

The possible transmission problem may be causing both warning lights to trigger even before the vehicle's driving performance is affected. Warning lights are indicators of the car's parts that may need your attention. Just like a toothache with our bodies.

Don't wait for any drop in performance before you have this problem checked out by a qualifed technician. Early intervention has proven that is saves you the trouble and greater expense.

Hope this helps.
