Question about 1988 Honda Accord 4 Door
1988 honda accord lx four cylinder two barrel carb single overhead cam. After car is running for about ten minutes it is loosing power to the fuel shutoff relay and shutting off the fuel pump. After about five minutes I can poor a little gas down the carb and it will start back up and start pumping fuel again for little bit then does the same thing again. So where does the shutoff relay get its signal fron that is controling the fuel pump??? When I bypass the relay it runs fine but I don't want to leave it like that for fear of messing something else up. Any help would be greatly appreciated. going bald trying to figure this out.
The power for the shutoff relay actually comes from a secondary winding on the ignition coil itself. Why the enging would shut the fuel pump off is that as the engine ran for a while the coil gets warm and then breaks down or opens up the circuit for the fuel shutoff relay. Fixed by replacing $85.00 coil.
