1997 Honda del sol starts but dies immediately

As soon as the engine starts it dies. It does not respond to depressing the accelerator so as to give it more fuel.

    I changed the fuel filter but problem persists. Perhaps a clue is the fact that, when the ignition switch is turned to on, the engine indicator lights do not come on.

    I hate to tell you but it might be the main control module. You need to either get your own ODB2 tester that hooks to the multipin plug under the dash on the dricer's side and gives you the trouble codes that can be looked up in the book that comes with it, or go to a repair shop and have them hook it in.

You are not getting enough gasoline to the engine. Causes include: fuel filter clogged (When did you change the fuel filter last?) THat is the chief cause, but it could also be water in the gas especially in the winter as it freezes in the fuel lines.

SOURCE: 94 honda del sol's engine revs up and down

I know exactly what you are talking about, it will go high to about 2 to 4k rpms, then back down to 1k in intervals of about 3 seconds. It is either the idle air position sensor, or the throttle body position sensor, hondas are famous for it. The parts are cheap, about $20-$30, and fairly easy to install when you find it. I suggest a Haynes Manual for installation to make it a lot easier if you don't know where it is. Good luck, hope all goes well.

SOURCE: 1996 honda del sol abs light stays on

If the ABS light is on, you have either a failing ABS (wheelspeed) sensor, or a bad ABS control module. You'll need a diagnostic scan to find out which it is. As for the owner's manual, there are a number of online owner's forums that will probably have the manual or at least the same information posted, or you can search eBay for one - they're common finds there.

What engines can fit in a 1997 honda del sol


Assuming you have a 1500. You can fit a d series, D16a1 or D16y8 (120-130bhp), a B16 (150) a B16a (JDM 160), a B18 from a Integra Tpre R (187), a K20 from a RSX, or a H22 from a Prelude. Most engines need a little work and wiring harnesses, but check it out thoroughly online on forums to udnerstand what is involved.

My personal choice would be a B16 or B18, light engines that are bulletproof.

Go for it :)
