Question about 1993 Honda Accord
Have a problem that occurred with my 175k accord LX last night. was driving on highway and noticed a loss of power along and overall rough running. the tachometer began bouncing everywhere suddenly and very erractically but would seem to stablize for a moment but no where near accurate. after noticing the issue looked at the temp gauge and it was showed completely cold...incorrect. the vehicle stalled several times driving down highway but would power steering still worked not like a total loss and would pick back up and stabilize and pick up some RPM. completely lost all RPM a two times and had to pull over but engine immediately restarted and would drive. i noticed when key was on ACC the temp gauge was correct but once cranked it would drop. i stopped at a store and shut the engine down for about 10 minutes and restarted and there seemed to be an increase in power and acceleration so i continued home but symptom began again very quickly. drove it in at very low rpm and speed. no smoking or unusual smells was ever noticed. there was a noteable loss of fuel mileage over last 50 miles. does this situation sound familiar to anybody??

Hi, I think it is your main relay. It is a major problem when the car get really hot inside. One very hot day last july my 1991 accord wagon would not start. Left it sit till the next moring(cooler temp). It started right up. Check out rockauto.com. They have the cheapest $ on new main relays. sd

There was a recall related to this a few years ago. I know because my engine began shutting off on the interstate and other driving situations. You may be able to search for the recall or just take it in to a Honda dealership and tell them that you received a recall notice related to your ignition switch a while back and your car has been stalling out while driving. I believe a replacement of the ignition switch will fix your problem. I haven't had any problems since. The dealership shouldn't charge you anything for the repair.

It seems to be clutch problem.
There is a way to slightly adjust the idle,on the front of the throttle body where the intake boot is bolted on,abovt the boot and slightly to the left you will see a hole about 1/2 inch wide and it is plugged with grey epoxy like material. Using a flat head screw driver scrape the epoxy out of the hole and there is a flathead adjustment screw. You can adjust the idle up and down just a few hundred rpm. Hope this helps and let me know if there is any more direction you need.
Please rate this solution.

SOURCE: 96 Honda Accord won't start.
Check three things:
1. Oil is being "siphoned" by the flow of air when you drive (like a whistle)
Is the oil dipstick missing? or hanging out a little?
2. There may be too much oil in the crankcase. Turn OFF engine, clean oil dipstick and then check oil level. Too much oil will be drawn onto the engine.
3. The rubber seal around the PCV valve is compromised. Replace PCV valve ($6 AutoZone)
Questions: When you try to start the engine, what does it do?
the starter spins?
Do headlights stay ON when you try to start?

Testimonial: "Thanks for the tips. Am purchasing PCV valve. Starter only cranks, won't start. The oil registers low."
it is saying you have bad stuts. you need to have it scanned to see which ones are bad.
