Question about 1999 Honda Accord

2 Answers

The engine loses power while driving at any speed.

While driving [at varies speeds] the engine stalls/loses power. I push in the clutch and turn ignition key to off. With clutch disengaged I turn key to start and let out on clutch. It then continues to run. Is it related to the computer?

Ok there can be many problems however have you looked at the exhaust system as being the problem. it may be catalytic converta blocked. or muffler,or resinator if fitted.
if this is the problem you will find engine temp higher than normal.Also feel the amount of exhaust gases coming out of the tail pipe. If a blockage is the culprit the exhaust note and pressure coming out of the tail pipe will be noticeable

Are there any dash light that are staying on while the vehicle is running? if not this could be related to the clutch it could be slipping possibly. let me know about the lights first. does the vehicle start fine on the intial start-up? if yes start the vehicle and put the car in third gear and try to take off. let me know what happens then? thank you i will help you figure this out.

I got a Audi A4. When idle, it surging. Why


Throttle Body Cleaning on vehicles without electronic throttle control (most 2003 and down)

You can in most cases repair this slow speed stall or unstable idle by cleaning the engine throttle valve and the idle speed control valve using a product called CRC Spray Throttle valve cleaner. Spray the cleaner into the air intake of the engine with the hose removed from the throttle body, the engine will try to stall so hold up the idle speed manually. Once you have used up about 1/2 can of the cleaner stall the engine out while spraying and turn the key off, disconnect the negative battery cable for 5 minutes and then reconnect and drive the car for a about 25 miles of varied driving modes. If this doesn't cure the problem you may need the fuel injectors professionally cleaned by the dealer service dept.

Car goes into gear when idling but will not move


sounds like total lost of engine power, or the brakes are frozen in ice.
if you can push car by and with brakes off , is the engine bad.
the clutch is not bad, if you stall any engine.
so what engine,, they use many on Acura's
cant fix the engine or know EFI with out that fact.
Generic.
lost compression on any or all cylinders.
bad fueling. (lost fuel pressure)
its most likely not spark if it idles nice, but doing the 60k tuneup
is real good idea now that it dont run ,now.

old sparks can work with lose speed then under load misfire.

Hi, I recently been have a problem with my 1998 Honda, passport. While driving my Honda it would shut down then starts again on its own while rolling. At times it would not start again on its own you need...


sure, rolling in gear you mean. (same effect as push starting a car with M/T) what speed did it restart, 5mph or 50 or 85mph.?)
what transmission. A/T or M/T? BEG ERROR there !

shut down,?
you mean stalls,
and engine can do 3 things
run too slow (way below 800RPM idle , illegal idle speeds)
stalls (rpm goes to zero or you find zero power from the engine )
if you stop the car, and the engine stalls that is an engine stall.

or run perfectly.

does your model have a tachometer to you can see RPM?
and if idle controls work,
not posting the trans type, (non body does here) makes answers near impossible. infact most will just ignore you posts.

with a M?T car the engine immediately returns (hot ) to 800rpm
and is regulated very closely by the EFI brain (PCM)
if not you are seeing IDLE control failure.
with and A/T there is no MT clutch and when you stop
the autoclutch drags (wastes fuel like mad) and puts a huge load
on the engine, stopped say at a red light. the idle controls
on A/t are greatly taxed here.
so RPM can drop real low. fail. or stall. below 800
a stall happens at about 400 RPM.
the M/T can at any time be restarted on the fly (moving)
but just dumping the clutch. or just waiting as you coast in gear.
this is how push starting any M/T car works.
but on an A/T car , on the fly restarts take huge speeds.
and only works on A/T that have 2 oil pumps.
the A/T with no rear pump , the A/T can not be push starter
or coast restarted, if the front pump is dead(engine stalled)
im not looking up your tranny spec. because you never stated, it.


my engine stalls. (not tranny slip)
1: bad 12vdc power to any EFI system component.
2: never ever tuned up per the free operators guide in glove box.
3: lost engine compression. 1 or all cylinders.
4: lost spark. (or timed wrong, early cars have distributors)
5: bad fueling. too much or too little

when the engine runs , does the MIL, CEL glow running
btw the CEL also glows, at all stalls. the lamp only means.
I HAVE ELECT power, now.... only.
