Question about 2004 Honda Accord

1 Answer

Engine cuts out. Loss of power steering.

Twice, since buying the car in Oct '08, the engine has cut out whilst cornering at slow speed. Power steering and braking is lost. Luckily road quiet on both occasions. Aware of recalls in earlier Honda models for similar problem - defective ignition switch. Local dealer has checked but no outstanding recalls on this vehicle or model.
Anybody advise?
Thanks
Bob.

Engine cuts out, steering locks on braking - scary! Help!


What is possibly happening is when you brake, there is a vacuum leak caused by the power brake system, this reduces the engine rpm, which in turn effects the power steering which makes it feel like the steering is locking up. This can also happen with a vacuum leak anywhere in the engine or things like a faulty idle adjustment control.... Turn the vehicle on, place your foot on the brake, if the idle speed increases dramatically you have a problem. Then put the vehiclein drive with your foot on the brake. If it nearly dies, again, you have an issue.
There are many different things on an engine that can create vacuum leaks. EGR Valves, IAC solenoid, PCV valves, the list goes on....
Good luck finding this particular issue!

Lose engine power at random times


What model Toyota? Later model cars have their engines controlled by an ECU which can cut out the engine when it senses problems such as low oil level, overheating etc. When ti ECU sense a problem it could cut the engine power to half )or less) of its full normal power to allow the vehicle to be driven at slow speed to the nearest service center.

Engine dies at stop lights when air conditioning is in use


Lets use common sense on the Trans Flushing

Old Fluid out --- New Fluid in---WOULD THAT DO ANYTHING
TO CORRECT ANY PROBLEM------NO

Trans & Power Steering Fluids-- are done every 3 years
in my world
They are called Preventative Maintenance,just like spark plugs,
gas & air filters,nothing else,fixes nothing

Trans fluid breaks down over time from heat & then your
clutches burn up & your trans fails,no other reason to change
the fluid

If the Torque Converter Clutch Solenoid is bad & doesn't
release when you apply the brake,then it is like slowing down
with a standard shift car & not putting in the clutch when you
come to a stop

You need to ask more questions & understand what your
told or stay in the conversation & take it into the service bay
& not deal with a service writer who doesn't work on the
product.

The steering in my 98 Buick Century is hard to turn at low speeds. Is this a steering pump issue or the rack and pinion?


Your PS pump is fine.

This vehicle has:

Variable-assist power steering: A power steering system that uses valves and speed sensors to vary the amount of steering assist according to engine or road speed. At slow speeds more steering assist is delivered and steering the wheels is easier; necessary for parking, etc.. At higher speeds, steering assist is reduced and more steering effort is required to steer the car, giving the driver greater feel of the road. Also known as Speed-sensitive power steering.

Loss of current to the magnetic coils would cause a loss of power assist at low speed. Coil resistance can be checked with an ohmmeter, and should read about two ohms. An infinite (open) reading indicates a bad coil (requires replacing the rack since the coils are not serviceable). Checking for shorts between both sides of the coil assembly and rack housing is also recommended.

Loss of power and usings lot's of fuel!


Hi
Most likely that will be your EGR valve, thats "Exhaust Gas Recycler" valve, it basically forces any unburnt fuel back into the engine to re-burn thus cuts the emissions. when they go you will lose a lot of power and the car will almost feel like it is twice as heavy. you can clean this part with carb cleaner and it may work again, It is strange how your ford dealer have not picked it up.

Does the engine light come on at all?

Also other thing it could be your air mass sensor, agaian you can clean this and it may still work, this part regulates the air to mix with the fuel you would lose power with this also and the car would hold back.

Let me know if you need specifics.

Regards
Dan

Power loss at 80mph


Fuel problem or the ECM and or chip has a 80mph limiter. Or your really winding out the engine, in which case, by the time you read this it will be too late.
