Check that basic stuff first check Gas filter or change if you didn't change in a while and check or change Air filter these would all cause this problem. Most thermal breakdown problem are almost always linked to electrical components. Check for spark and gas when vehicle doesn't start.One has to be missing if it gas then its either a bad fuel pump relay or a FUEL pump. If it spark its a bad coil/ignition module or may be a bad Rotor head or cap. Check these and you will diagnose this problem your self. Contact if you need more help and thank for using FIX YA Good luck

1990 honda accord ex does not start when hot?

Sounds like the pgmfi relay is going out. This is a common problem with these cars. They get hot and dont want to work, they cool off and everything is ok.

Need to set the timing on a 1990 maxima

im not sure about your car but some cars are interference engines,meaning if the timing belt breaks the valves will hit the pistons and it will bend the valves and the car will not run again just by putting a new belt on it,,hopefully thats not the case but alot of import cars are interference engines,,good luck

1990 maxima when I shift there is no sounds and nothing happens

If you press the accelerator, you hear the engine going up but it does not move then it is probably a trans problem.

There is a sensor on the hand brake wiring, that wont let the gear start, when no gear is engaging, that is usually cause for the problem.
