Question about 1991 Honda Accord

1 Answer

Intermittantly the car won't start

1991 Honda Accord LX Wagon
The car turns over, but will not start.
The battery is fine, the distributor sparks, fuel is fine.
Usually, if you wait an hour and try again, it starts. The last time
this happened (1 week ago) it wouldn't start all day Saturday, but
started up just fine Sunday Morning and numerous times since then.

    I have the same problem with my 1991 Honda accord. My boyfriend also had the same problem with his 1993 civic. Usually it only happens if the car is really hot on the inside. We got the 1993 civic fixed and they said it had something to do with the internal computer getting to hot on a sunny day. I just try to keep my car parked in the shade or keep the windows down and that seems to help. We paid $200 to fix the civic, but that was 2 years ago.

Main Fuel injector relay is probably the culprit. Buy a second hand one for about 50 bucks and replace it yourself within 30 minutes.

What dose main pickup sensor do on a 1991 honda accord lx

if you feel savvy enough, check to see if it produces spark and also check if the fuel pump is working. If no spark usually a problem in the distributor. if no fuel coming out of the fuel line, maybe bad fuel pump. need to check if pump is not working.

My 1991 Honda Accord turns over but wont start what could the problem be

Does it have spark? If not, 90% sure it's a distributor. I still to this day keep a spare D, B, and F series distributor in the trunk of my car to bail out all my Honda buddies when their "dizzy" drops out. Usually, it's one of the three pickup sensors in the distributor that goes dead. Start by checking for good, clean, spark. If you have good spark, go to fuel, then compression. But with as often as the Dizzy goes dead at this cars age, start there...

The computer is located under the carpet, passenger side, where passengers feet would be. If the water was up to the console, your computer was doing the back stroke, and I'm afraid it drowned. Sorry! countrycurt0
