Question about 1995 Honda Accord

1 Answer

My 94 honda accord ran hot and now wont start

It ran hot for a couple of days and I would wait til it cooled down and put water in it while engine running and it continued to start. Well a couple of days ago it ran hot and the engine light came on. I pulled over, let it cool down, as usual, put water in the radiator, while engine still on, and the engine starts shaking really bad, so I stopped adding water and turned the engine off. When I immediately tried to start it again, wouldnt start. Its trying to turn over but it wont. It kinda gives a "die-down" type of noise as though the battery is dying, but it even does this when I connect it to jumper cables and another car. I realize that my head gaskets could be blown or the head warped, but could this possibly be the alternator as well. I could use a sealant to correct this problem but how do I get it started so that I can use the sealant,.....HEEEELLLLLLP!!

Sorry. Could also be a cracked head or block. Take the spark plugs out and see if they are wet.  Charge battery and turn engine over with the coil grounded and the sparkplugs out. If water flyes out of any cylinder,you may have to disassemble the engine.

Why wont my 94 accord 4 cyl start when its warm out?

A common problem with no-start Honda cars is the fuel pump relay under the dash.
I would check that first. Could also be a faulty coil.

My 94 honda accord cut out while driving and will not start. It turns over fine but will not fire up. it's as though there is no gas

there are two posible culprits, one, is your distributer, and one is your gas pump. lets hope its your distributor because a gas pump costs like 500 dollars to change. well to know if its your distributor, it will take a couple of hours to cool down, and once it does cool down, it will start back up, and cut off while driving. thats the simplest way to check your distributor. if its your gas pump, the only way to check your gas pump is to check the gas pressure. and most of the time, it might mean gas spraying everywhere. so if i where you, i would wait a couple of hours, and try to start it. if it starts, change the distributor. it costs like 180 at autozone. if you need more assistance, just reply. good luck

My 94 honda accord keeps dieing out

Could be a couple things but it sounds like maybe your fuel pump is going out. There could also be a clog somewhere along the line. Try adding a fuel cleaner/additive to the tank when you fill it next time, see if that helps.
