I will try to give you some info. Think a question goes back to why the fuel pump was changed and if, for some reason, the carburetor was removed.

The needle valve inside the carburetor can be the problem. But the float which interacts with the needle valve can have a leak and sank. Or the Carburetor was tilted and the mounting pin for the float came out of its position and let the float jam in the carb housing.

You can get a Repair CD for about $8 from the big autoparts stores which show how to work on a carburetor. Or get a rebuilt or Salvage carb and change it. If you are trying to replace the needle valve, there are different styles and your Maker can have an easier model which may not require removal of the carb.

The float level is important and if the old settings were correct, you leave the adjustments like you foundd them.

Please rate my info.

Same problem! Put in a new ignition switch (husband did of course!) and it worked! Very cheap, under $80.

SOURCE: 98 Olds 88 starting problem

Update--after getting car back from 3rd shop, it ran flawlessly for about a week or ten days. Then started doing it again. I decided to do some more troubleshooting myself. While trying to track down the components of the fuel pump electrical circuit, I did quite a bit of wire wiggling at the firewall and inside behind the glove box (the location of the fuel pump relay on this car). I had a buddy turn key to "on" while listening for the fuel pump relay to click. When he did, the fuel pump ran 2-3 seconds just like its supposed to. The car started right up, and has ran since---two weeks now. My problem definitely now looks like a short in the wiring somewhere in the fuel pump circuitry. Next time it does it, I'll try to further narrow down the area of the problem. I found this one basically by accident.

Are you sure you have correct timing? its definetly a fule problem, if timing is good then turn your key to the on position and try to listin for the fule pump to prime. While the key is in on position go to fuel rail, there is a valve on fule rail called sharader valve. Get a small screw driver and press valve in to check if car has fule pressure. if pressure is present then it is incorrect timing or possible bad cam sensor.

SOURCE: 1991 honda accord start fine

I would think the PGM-FI relay maybe bad. It's located up under the far driver's side of the dashboard. When it doesn't start, I would check to see if you are getting spark at the plugs. There could be a problem with the PGM-FI Control Unit.

SOURCE: My 1994 Honda Accord vtec suddenly sounds like a

well that would depend. to fix the problem, i really cant see you spending over 500, 1000 if the situation is that bad. you can probably get at least another 100,000 miles out of it at least since you maintain it right. . if you would like to upgrade to maybe a newer car, like above 2000 then buy. but if you really like your car, then you can have the engine completely rebuild for around 1500, depending on the area, and the engine would be like new, but theirs also a risk of other components going bad like the distributor(shouldn't be a problem if you change the cap and rotor), or the fuel pump(no problem if you change the fuel filter), maybe alternator since theres not really any preventative maintenance. but once again, you do your maintenance, any other components going bad is really unlikely. so i say the cheapest would be to fix the existing problem(i think id do that), the second cheapest would be to rebuild the engine, and the most expensive would be to buy another car(this can be risky because not everyone takes care of their cars the same). hope this helps. goodluck.

More likely it's yr heating pipes let water escape so check these thoroughly. Could be head gasket leaking into engine so chk that immed for any sign of water on the oil stick. Otherwise flush the engine water thru for an oily blockage. Always use coolant. cheers

Check the Mass Air Flow Sensor, you can get a can of cleaner specific for cleaning them for a couple bucks at the parts store. I'd just get 1 and clean the sensor see if that works. The MAF sensor is either in the throttle body itself (bolted on from the outside or in the air line between the filter and throttle body. That could be the whole problem right there. Good luck.

It is possible the alternator is causing this... it is also possible the battery is causing this also... ALSO could be the battery terminals are not making GOOD contact... take them off, clean them with a STIFF wire brush.. and put a little dielectric grease on them to prevent corrosion.. tighten snugly!!!!!!

If you are absolutely certain that the wheels are not needing balanced, then I would suspect the CV joints / Driveshafts. Sounds like one of them may be stuck.

Where is the starter located on a 2004 honda accord

I just changed mine out recently. Your gonna hate this. It's underneath your intake manifold located at the front of your engine. Between the engine and the top of your transmission is where you'll find it. You will need a metric socket set (half inch drive) and wrenches.
It takes about 3 hours to switch out if you are moderately mechanical and use the Haynes Repair Manual for your model of Accord.
In addition to removing your intake manifold you will also have to remove your throttle body and multiple vacuum hoses.
Make sure you get the manual and read the procedure 2 or times before you try it.
Good luck with this. It's a bear.
