Question about 1987 Honda Accord

1 Answer

My 89 civic si has problems starting in the cold mornings. Then sometimes you have to keep your foot on the gas to keep it from cutting of. Had a new IAC valve, try another my friends Main Relay. But it just looks like it hates the cold weather.

I had this problem with my Sport Trac in the winter especially. What octane gas do you use? All my problems went away when I went to 87 octane vs 93 or 89 octane (go figure) My brother is the vehicle expert, and he recommended that for me.

I have an 89 civic hatchback si and sometimes when i accelerate it bogs at first then it accelerates.whats the matter with it?

Check the air cleaner, plug wires/plugs/ca[ & fuel filter. They are the common user friendly items to r&r before submitting to the professionals for scan tool information. The biannual smog test would show some of the problem's or even loss of gas mileage.

I have a 1990 honda civic hatchback si with an 89 ZC DOHC black top engine.. the rear motor mount is cracked and each time i down shift the engine raddles.. how do i change out the mount? and if possible.....

You will need something to lift the engine so that you can take the pressure off of the mount. It sounds like your fuel pump may be wearing out and it is not responding like it should...The pump on the gas tank should be located on the top of the tank....Under the back seat....
