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 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.

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.
