Check the idle position sensor and clean the idle control valve. to clean the IAC, spray some brake cleaner directly at the valve after removing the air cleaner duct work. Do this with the engine running at 1500 rpms.If the valve is dirty it will clear up.
Get a scancode to check the sensors. it would be a good idea even before cleaning the IAC valve.They do it free at autoparts stores.

When is really cold, and vehicles with non electrical power steering start for the first time after a good period of inactivity the power steering pump tents to wine, that is normal, some other cars or almost all the cars when they pass 100.000 miles develop a little metallic noise that goes away when the oil pump distributes and lubricates all moving parts inside the engine when the car starts first thing in the morning in a really cold morning.

Has this vehicle ever had a fuel pump replaced?
If not I would have a fuel pressure test preformed on the vehicle. Sounds like check ball in the pump not doing its job and giving you residual pressure when it feels like it.

Timing belt ever been changed? Sure does sound like the problem. An old belt will snap on a cold start. Might want to look to see if the belt is tight and in place. These belts break regularly on Hondas with over 70,000 miles on them. Timing Belt change interval is 50,000.

03 Honda Accord EX will occasionally flood on a cold morning; ~17 F etc. After it has warmed up and all other times it starts OK. This does not happen often but I am concerned that it will leave my wife...


When it's very cold and the car will start right away, the most common thing that happens is the engine will flood. When you turn the key to start, the gas is sprayed into the engine. It does not know that the car didn't start and will continue to spray gas as long as the key it turned to start. That is why you should not crank for longer than 20-30 seconds at a time.
Then if it will not start, hold your gas pedal all the way to the floor, and the gas spray is stopped, so that the extra gas can be expelled. You can now try to start agian normally.

92 Honda Accord Wont Start After Rain (especially mornings)


Good Morning,
Check for moisture in the Distributor and use a blow dryer to dry it out. You may want to consider changing your Spark Plug wires to a "Moisture Resistant" type. Please let me know if this helps you and thank you for using FixYa!
