1992 honda accord running very rough and check engine light came

Driving home the other night my car started misfiring and when I came to a stop the check engine light came on and the car almost stalled out. I changed the spark plugs and wires and there wasnt an improvement. If you know of anything else I can do besides take it to a high price tech please let me know

    It is idling a little slower but not backfiring like maybe a bad distributer cap or possibly water in the fuel but it ran great for 3/4 tank

If the car runs fine until it warms up, then the check engine light goes on and it all goes to hell (sputtering, dying, etc...) then it is most likely the o2 sensor. Take it to autozone and have them put it on the scanner, just be sure to bring it when the check engine light is ON.

    Sorry, had that backward!! Big problems, then check engine light goes on and all is great. That is an o2 sensor problem.

  • Rakulus Jan 28, 2009

    One more thing, it is easy to check if this is the problem. Just unplug the o2 sensor and see if the problem remains. It is on the top of the exhaust pipe just before the cat.

Honda accord ex 2001 check engine light suddenly came on, car started to idle roughly


If it's running rough, chances are that it's misfiring. If the Check Engine light is flashing/blinking, it is definitely misfiring.
If that's the case, drive it as little as possible... Or straight to the mechanic because the more you drive it while it's misfiring, the higher the chance is of you ruining your catalytic converter.

Could driving my 07 Honda Accord with the low fuel light on for roughly 30 miles have an affect on the emission light? No gas station available.


Yes it could trigger a random engine misfire code due to the pump drawing air from the low fuel level. Have the system tested to confirm this, the code will be P0300. Autozone and other discount parts stores will do the test for free, just tell them your check engine light is on and you would like a test done to see what the code is.

I was driving , next thing i know mmy honda accord (engine light ) started flashing,. i noticed the car was shaky as well


a flashing check engine light means catalyst damaging misfire which is just about the worst thing for your engine. i suggest not driving it til its fixed. misfires will cause it to shake. check for spark first.

92 accord runs rough at a stop and sometimes wont start right away after driving for awhile


Have your main power relay replaced as your problem is the typical symptom of a bad main relay, when it gets hot after driving and trying to restart. The running rough problem might be your center engine mount. Have it checked to see if it's bad.

1992 honda accord stop running in middle of driving


When you turn the key to start, the engine cranks over? You must check for spark and fuel, if one is missing, the car won't run. Pull a spark plug, with plug wire connected and plug on a metal surface of the engine, have someone turn the key to start, while you watch for spark at the plug. It is easiest to see spark with car out of direct or bright light. If you have spark, attempt to start several times, pull a spark plug and check for evidence of fuel (wet) on plug. Let me know what you find, we can then continue.

1982 honda accord stopping while driving


I had the same problem. Replace the ignition switch under dash by the steering wheel. Piece of cake! Under $50 part and easy to replace.

Good luck!
