Code 271 is for a problem with the injector for cylinder number 4. The circuit has higher voltage than normal. Possible causes are a faulty injector, dirty injector, or problem in the harness.
A mechanic would check the circuit and the injector with a meter.

Why would you take any car to a dealership?

Never a car over 5 years old

PO271 Cylinder #4 Injector Circuit High

Take to a local repair shop

You won't have the ability to diagnose

is it a vtec if so check oil level as if gets low causes problems with the variable valve timing due to low oil pressure which causes poor performance and brings on mil light.

1996 Honda Accord Running lean after changing tune up and new oxygen sensors.


My first thought was fuel pressure. Low fuel pressure would cause the engine to go lean but not set a code for the actual problem.
Is it possible the fuel filter is clogged ? Have you checked fuel pressure?

My honda accord VSA light is flashing


I had this problem on a Ridgeline and did just about everything trying to avoid taking it to the dealership. VSA stands for Vehicle Stablility Assist and if your light is flashing then you'll probably need to take it to the dealer and have the system checked for problems and reset. I don't know of any mechanics with the software that Honda has for this system.

96 Honda Accord D (Drive) light is flashing!


Try checking transmission oil, top it off or have it changed. If still not fixed go to autozone or similar and have them hook it up to a machine that will diagnose problems to make sure it isn't just a faulty sensor or something. It is transmission related so don't just let it go.

PO 171 fuel system to lean to bank 1 97 Honda Accord 165k miles


Yes. I would clean the engine with engine cleaner and then watch for any oul leaks. For you to use that much oil there would be a major leak. If no leaks check to see if blue smohe is coming out you tailpipe. If not keep an eye on is I this it will be fine if none of these things are wrong. I hope this helps. Don't forget to rate my answer. thanks.

95 honda accord V6 tachometer jumping and cutting out.


I had the same problem with my 1995 Honda Accord V6 2.7L a year ago. It was a pain to have Honda diagnose the problem because it was intermittent and every time I took my car in to the dealership they said they couldn't reproduce the problem, but the longer you wait the more frequently your tachometer will fluctuate. I finally stopped by the dealership when the tachometer was jumping and they were able to diagnose the problem. In my case there was a faulty resistor in the ignition coil, but the entire ignition coil needs to be replaced. I don't know anything about cars but I know this fixed my problem. I went directly though Honda's service center so I know they charged me more than an independent repair shop but I'm looking at my invoice now and I paid $150 for the ignition coil and $200 for labor. After Honda diagnosed the problem I searched for "1995 honda accord ignition coil tachometer" and found that other people had the same problem and replacing the ignition coil was the fix. Hope this helps.

Check Engine Light is On


You did what thousands of people do they get a code and jump straight to replace a part no testing just guessing. code 43 is a fuel system problem code sure enough you absolutely need proffessional diagnostic help with this one you cannot go on another hondas code 43 because you can have two hondas exact same symptoms and even the color of the interior and have two completely different problems I realize it costs money to diagnose the problem but which is cheaper to pay diagnostic and only change the one bad thing or replace part after part then take it to be diagnosed and have them change one part?
Cmon Please do the right thing for your wallet honda is not a car for anyone but a professional to diagnose and fix.
