Question about 1998 Honda Accord

1 Answer

My 98 Honda Accord starts then sputters/shakes and dies...

It just started doing this the other day...If I don't hit the gas it will die. It seems like when I start it the first time of the day, it's ok...if I shut it off for like an hour or so and try to start it again that's when it does it. I've never had any problems w/my car for the last 2 yrs. I've owned it but now I'm affraid it won't start at all one day!!! Please help!!!

SOURCE: Unlock Code For Honda Accord 98

you need to call the dealer to get the code. you might have to unhook the neg battery cable to reset the radio again if the code doesnt work. also somtimes the code is printed on a small white sticker somewhere in the car. around the glovebox or in a door jamb or in the trunk under the ash tray. just need to look all over.

this was a recall on most accords. it is the ignition switch. dont wait to long it is dangerous my mom was having this problem in a 1998 accord and it got worse and started stalling at intersections. But it is a recall. depending on your VIN number they might do it for free. Call honda and verify. How bout a fix ya. good luck i hope you get it done for free. we had to pay :(

There is no points or condenser on a 92 accord, check the fuel pressure first, maybe a complete tune-up will help

Have fire and gas. airflow seems to have reversed. Intake pushing air out, any ideas.

If you know for a fact the timing belt is ok and cam timing is correct, I would say its a stuck or bent intake valve or two.
My first guess would be a damaged timing belt tho.

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

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 have to hit the gas to start my 2006 chevy uplander but once it starts it is fine, could this be a fuel pup problem if i dont hit the gas it will just turn over or it will start and die

I am a gm dealership tech, and also own one of these. My vehicle has the exact same problem. Cleaning, or having the throttle body cleaned well seems to help alot. I just rest my foot on the gas pedal alittle when I start it most times just kinda became habit. Unfortunately we have not found a real permanent fix as of yet.
