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.

96 Accord LX, 2.2L. Wouldn't start. Replaced Starter. Replaced Battery. It drives for a little while. Turn it off and it won't start again. Help? Please?

The distributor is a high failure rate item on Hondas if I had to guess I would guess the distributor is the culprit. good luck.

I have a 1991 Honda accord lx. When it is running or try to start it, it will take time to start. I checked the code and it is code 15. i keep hearing it could be an ignitor in the distributor etc. can...

Code 15 indicates a problem with the ignition output signal. There are a number of things it could be: the rotor, the igniter, the coil, the spark plug wires and/or their connections to the plugs. The rotor, igniter, and the coil can all be replaced. They are all, in the 1991, inside the distributor.
The basic check for ignition and battery supply to the ECU(computer) is to turn the ignition switch to on(do not start the car) to see if a battery or oil pressure light comes on, but that, in itself doesn't prove a lot (you've already said that the car starts; it just doesn't start easily).
It is time, I'm afraid to have your coil and igniter checked, or replaced.
Hope this is helpful.

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
