Question about 1992 Honda Accord

1 Answer

1999 honda accord seems like it isn't gettign a steady fuel supply, it keeps sputtering and almost dies but when I pump the gas pedal it revs back up. I just put a new O2 sensor in and it sounds l

The car started acting like it was going to die last night when I was parking. It started to sputter almost like it was not getting fuel, I don't think it"s the fuel pump though because when i turn the key to start I can hear the fuel pump start. I went back out and started it this morning and it was still sputtering but when I gave it some gas it stopped sputtering momentarily. After it ran for a few minutes I noticed a strong smell of fuel. I changed the upstream O2 sensor on the manifold thinking that the smell of fuel may have been due to a rich mixture. This didn"t seem to change the sputtering when I started the car back up after replacing the sensor. Any suggestions?

First question is - is the check engine light on ?
If yes you should check it for codes next.
You may have to use a scanner to watch the O2 sensor to figure out if it is too lean or too rich. I would also check fuel pressure at the rail with a gauge to make sure pressure is normal. Could be a faulty fuel pressure regulator among other things.

    I took the car for a drive after I changed the upstream O2 sensor yesterday evening and the car started running a little better, I then changed out the other O2 sensor on the downstream end and this morning my car has been running great. This morning my check engine light went off also but only after I had driven the car for about thirty miles and having it parked overnight.

    I believe that changing the O2 sensors was all it needed.

Sounds like it could be your alternator dying or dead. Have it checked.

SOURCE: 93 honda accord fuel pump??

Check the distributor by letting the car run and tug on the wiring and see if the car acts up. Under the thermostat housing is a wiring harness, I've seen coolant drip on the connector of the O2 sensor and cause this problem too. The main relay is the switch you're referring to. It's located under the dash of the driver's side to the left. I've definitely seen these go bad. Use a test light on the hot wire to the fuel pump. Have an assistant turn the key in the "on" position and see if you have power there. Let me know what you found out so I can hopefully give you more things to check out. Send me emails to tiqautoperformance@live.com.

Sounds like the ignitor in the distributor has gone bad. The cheaper way out is just buying a good used distributor from the bone yard. I've had this same problem several times on these Hondas.

if it's been sitting for a month, then there's a good chance the gas in it has gone bad. Try adding new fuel or fuel stabilizer and running out the old gas.

take off one of the plug wires and hold it next to a metal surface, get someone to turn the engine over for you and see if the spark is bright blue, if it is the coils are ok, then check for oil leaking around your distributor, if you have an oil around that area take off the distributor cap and see if there is oil inside. the seal may be gone, while you have the cap off it would be a good time to check the rotor button inside

2004 honda, lost power and sputters. Will crank with gas pedal to floor but not enough power to move car. take foot off pedal and it dies


sounds like it is starving for fuel. check fuel pump relay to make certain pump is running. if it is, change fuel filter this may help. the best way to check to see if pump is running is to have someone turn car to on, not start. and feel the vibration at fuel tank with your hand. a pump only runs for a few seconds. until it gets pressure to engine. then when engine is running its on until you shut car back off. you may have to turn key on a few times to feel a vibration. good-day!!

It idles just fine but when you accelerate its sputters and dies if you do not work the pedal. the timing is good.. the Carb is getting plenty of gas. it has been turned up. just cannot figure it out


Can you raise the revs by gently pressing the pedal? That will largely eliminate the electrics or will it just not rev at all? Is the idling affected? Have you checked that the accelerator pump is working as it should, Is the mixture correct? (What did you turn up, the idle speed or the mixture? and is the timing advance working as it should? Is the fuel pump working properly? Make sure it's pumping enough fuel. Failing all that it could be contaminated fuel or a blockage.
You say the carb is getting plenty of gas but it sounds like fuel starvation or excessive richness if you can get the revs up eventually.
Disconnect the fuel pipe to the carb, put it in a deep bowl as you dont want it splashing all over the place and get someone to crank it. It should provide a steady good flow of fuel. Finally check all vacuum hoses/pipes for leaks

How to reset fuel pump on 1999 honda accord a/t?, after a repair on fuel pump car idling is poor and seems like to stall if gas pedal is pressed.


I replaced the pump on my 1999 Accord EX V6 and didn't have to reset a thing. The only problem is that the low fuel light doesn't come on every time it should. The poor idling sounds like a different problem like your TPS or the IAC solenoids. Have your local parts store pull codes for you for free if you have a check engine light on.

Engine stalls when stepping on gas pedal and will not idle on its own.


Have you checked the ignition timing? Maybe you need to turn the distributor to the left or right if you don't have the timing light gun
