Question about 1992 Honda Accord

1 Answer

92 Honda Accord has intermittent stalling

My 92 Accord EXR starts fine and after a few minutes of idle the RPM's become weak and erratic and then it stalls. (Acts like the fuel pressure is diminishing ) After I let it rest for a few minutes it will start and sometimes repeats the stalling. It will eventually operate as expected. I have ordered a Main Relay as I have been led to believe this may be affecting the fuel pump operation causing the concern....Has any one had these sympyoms. The car is in new condition with 48,000 K....It is my pet project...

Hi,

Hey, good job ordering the "main relay" honda have a BIG problem with this issue. That sounds like your right on target. Some other ideas to kick around if that doesn't work.

1. Clean the throttle flap

dirt get on flap restricting air flow causing stalling issues. (Clean with B12 cleaner in the white can and a rag. Don't use too much B12 cleaner. 10 seconds is more than enough. )

2. Check Idle Air Control Valve
check the Idle air control valve on the back of the intake manifold ( firewall side on engine) remove the two bolts and inspect the screen in the valve for dirt and carbon. You can replace it, but it just may need to be cleaned.

Good luck with the project and hope I'ved helped.

1998 Honda Accord engine rumbles and stops


rumbles?, did the RPM drop below 800 RPM? that is called idle failure
and when it does, idle can go to 400 rpm and will shake hard.
and is normal for illegal idle speeds. so post that first.
post that engine stalls
and that the RPM is 400-500 just before the stall.
then post if the fast right foot can save the stall (a key test !!!!)
if easy the ISC is sticking.
if tad hard the EGR is stuck open'
if impossible to save. then more possible (many)
ever do the 60k mile tune up this decade????,. if not why not./ now.

Honda accord 1996 v6 2.7 liter,rpm gage jump up and down


Here is the most common cause of surges and stalls, it is the idle speed control air-bypass valve and throttle valve, they get full of gunk over the miles and cause idle issues (stalls) like yours, Get a can of intake cleaner from any local parts store, not carb spray, intake cleaner, it is made by a company called CRC, remove the air intake hose to the engine, hold the idle high so the engine won't stall, then spray the can of cleaner into the intake while keeping the engine running, use at least 1/2 the can, shut down the engine and disconnect the battery for 5 minutes, then restart and complete a number of mixed driving cycles, town, freeway, stop and go etc., after a few days the problem will go away as the system will relearn to the clean intake.
