Question about 1993 Honda Accord

1 Answer

93 accord stalls after 10min. check engine,batt & oil light on

First, THANKS for taking the time to answer my question! i replaced the distributor, ignition coil (which i thought was the problem) fuel filter and air filter, but still have same problem. i usuallly have to let it sit 5-10min before it starts again and then will stall 3-4 times over the next few miles or so. it happens at any speed and there is no sputtering or anything-it just dies. engine temp is normal too.any help would be greatly appreciated!

    Thanks for the reply! actually, i had replaced the distributor cap & rotor only- but not the actual distributor. i just replaced the distributor today and...it stopped (the stalling), ran for 30min straight! but, like you were saying, it does have a bit of a vibration. thanks for the tip!

    One thing that comes to mind expecially with you just replacing the distributor is when you installed your new destributor did you re time it right not to question your ability but did you reset base timing by jumpering the plug on the right side under the dash if so timing may be the majority of your problem hope that helps a little i keep an eye out for your reply

    I would have suggested the distributor before the main relay BUT YOU SAID THAT YOU REPLACED IT. That's the most common problem with these honda's I was just working with the info you provided. Anyway you are Welcomed.

How to replace distributor 1993 Honda Accord...


Take note of the position of each plug lead. Mark them with whiteout or tape and a pen if they have no distinguishing marks, or if you are unsure of their relative position.

Using a timing light on cylinder No.1, take note of the present timing marks on the crankshaft pulley with the vehicle up to temperature and running. You also need to take note of the engine revolutions when checking. Using paint, or a scribe, mark where the old distributor is aligned in reference to the engine head. These will serve as an approximate reference when refitting the new one.
Once your notes and marks have been taken, assuming you have no instructions on what the timing and rev range should be normally, then you can procede with the removal of the distributor.

Take off the distributor cap and take note of the position of the rotor arm and which direction it is pointing to. You will have to align the new distributor's rotor arm to the same point before installation.
Many distributors have two locating/locking bolts. You can remove these both, then pull out the distributor. It may require a bit of coaxing as it has a rubber sealing ring on it's shaft which may make it stiff when removing.
As soon as the distributor comes out you will notice that the distributor's drive shaft has two metal lugs which slot into the camshaft. Those metal lugs on many Japanese models are offset, allowing you only one way to fit the new distributor, or in other words, to make it impossible to set the distributor 180 degrees in the wrong direction. This is not always the case however, which is why taking note of the rotor arm earlier was important.
When refitting a new distributor it is often wise to fit it with a new rubber shaft seal. Apply a little rubber grease when refitting, or a smear of engine oil, making it easier to slide in.
Once in, roughly align your distributor at the angle the old one came out at, then secure lightly with one of the retaining bolts. I say lightly, because you will need to turn the distributor later to set the timing.Replace the cap and leads.
Often there is a sticker under the hood/bonnet which tells you what the timing should be at which engine idle rev range.If you are having problems keeping the engine at that specific rev range, then disconnect the idle control valve wiring connector and have someone sit in the vehicle to manage the throttle by the pedal.
Make sure the vehicle is up to temperature once again. The engine may run a little rough at this point, as your timing isn't set yet.

Referring to either your own notes or to the sticker under the hood, use the timing light again and turn the distributor until the crank shaft timing marks align to the correct position, then secure the distributor's locking bolts.


Run the vehicle for a few hours or days, and check the distributor for any signs of an oil leak. An oil leak generally occurs if the shaft seal ('O' ring) is not fitted correctly or if the rubber is damaged/perished.


Good luck!

I will be driving down the road and the check engine light comes on and the engine stops running i let it sit for 10-15 minutes and it starts again


What model and year honda do you have? If it's an accord, 90-93, take a look at your distributor by checking for spark, when the engine dies. If no spark, it's usually a bad distributor on those year accords.

Anyone aware of a regular problem with the 1993 Camaro Z-28 needing trans mounts every couple of years. One owner car with 100,000 miles on it, used regularly but not beaten. Thanks for the time and effort...


Mounts generally last a long time as long as the rubber portion is not exposed to oil. If there is oil coating the transmission and mount, you may want to try to find the source of the oil leak.

I don't know what engine is in the Z-28 package, but I had a '93 Lumina (3.1L V6) that leaked oil badly from the plate the blocked off the hole where the distributor used to be. (Sometime before '93, they eliminated the distributor and went to coil packs.) Replacing the gasket under this plate solved my problem.

Connect a voltmeter set on ac volts to the pickup coil wires (disconnected from the module) and crank the engine.

2. The pick-up coil output should be more than 0.7v AC. If not, replace the pick up coil and distributor shaft.

3. Visually inspect the condition of the magnet on top of the distributor shaft to be in good condition. If not, replace the distributor

1. Disconnect the set timing connector or ground the Tan/Black bypass wire.

2. The check engine light should come on and code 42 should set.

3. If the engine stops stalling, disconnect the pick up coil connector at the Ignition Control Module (ICM).

4. Check acv output from the pick up coil while cranking the engine at a normal cranking speed.

5. If output is less than 700 mv replace the distributor shaft with a new one.

Check engine light after every oil change 2005 Honda


This happens because the oil filter needs to be free of air. When the oil pressure sensor drops below a certain value it shuts off the injectors because the PCM. This is a good feature because if you run out of oil for any reason it should stop the engine before damage occurs.

When i start the engine make noise for few seconds


It sounds like you need to check and replace your engine oil and oil filter. This will happen when it is cold and dirty and it takes time to get to the oil ports in the engine. I hope this helps. Don't forget to rate my answer. Thanks.
