Question about 1994 Honda Accord

1 Answer

Check Engine light comes on some times when it does the car cuts out and dogs down around 2800 rpm's.Restart the car and it runs fine.Code came back as 04-Crankshaft Position Sensor.I've been told by a mechanic its a non replacable part that is located in the distributor.My question is, is there another possible malfunction why that code would come up and is there something else I should do before I spend 160.00 on a distributor? Any thoughts or input would help.

    I have a similar problem. IWhen the engine is running the engine light stays on. I found it to be a code 9. I replaced the distributor. Still have a code 9 and engine light still on. I disconnected the battery to reset the computer but this did not help. Any suggestions?

NO You will have to replace distributor because the cranks sensor is located in distributor, However to help cut cost I would recommend getting a use distributor from a salvage place it should be alot less.

Scan the engine computer for trouble codes, and go from there. with the light on, there will be a code or more to follow. Some stores, like Autozone, will do code scans for free. If you get a lot of codes, first attend to those that indicate the problem you are having.

Problem with my car


A couple of parts come to mind. Usually the throttle position sensor will show a Code for being bad, but it is something to look at.

What is interesting is if the car stalls or continues to run at 1000rpm when the test equipment is hooked up. You can have a clogged catalytic converter.

You will need a helper to keep the engine rpm up. Take a spray bottle and fill it with water. While the engine runs, mist around the seams of the intake manifold and at vacuum hoses. If there is a leak, the rpm will change and the leak can be tracked down this way.

Have someone check your EGR valve for leaks.

try by starting off with getting a computer scan for diagnostic trouble codes.ther should at least be a history code stored. it sounds like maybe a cam sensor problem , but the scan should shed more light on the course of repair.

2001 golf, changed timing belt, now car only goes to 2800 rpm


check that you havent bent a valve in the cylinder head. Do a compression check on each of the cylinders if it is low on any this more than likely a bent valve resulting in no power from that cylinder.

Good Day Tony,

That's an intersting problem.... I would assume that if it was misfiring in a cylinder it would trip your check engine light as it did before. Because it only happens when you are going 50 it might be something else. What happens when you put the truck in park or nuetral and rev up the engine? Rev it up slowly and see if jerks or hesitates at any particular rpm range, I'm just trying to rule out if it's a possible transmission problem or engine problem. Let me know and I can assist further.

Good Luck
