Question about 1997 Honda Accord

1 Answer

Car dies while

My honda accord lx dies while driving mainly in passing gear i replaced the fuel filter and fuel pump but it still does it. I have a 1997 Honda Accord 4 cylinder LX. This happened to me about three weeks ago and then it happened again yesterday. I come to a stop and while idling, the car dies. When I try to start it, the engine fires up and then dies again right away. Both times I have gotten it started and running by really gunning the gas and racing the engine for about 5 - 10 seconds Afterward, it seems to run fine. There are no other symptoms that I have noticed.

This car has been babied for all of it's life. At 95K miles I had it checked out and the mechanic just shook his head and said "95000 miles and it's barely broken in." Currently it has 110K miles. Any ideas?

    I don't know how the first two lines were inserted into my problem statement and I have no way that I know of for editing. The post I made starts with "I have a 1997 Honda Accord 4 cylinder LX..."

    What do you mean by ''babied'' ? Maintenance history please.

    'babied'? Well looked after like a treasured child. No expense spared, serviced, kept clean, never raced, never taken out in the rain :>)

It is a known problem and the ignition switch was part of a recall. Lots of information here and a few fixes. Look at the video tab as well.

When was the last time the timing belt was replaced? Is it a V-tech engine?
