    About the check engine light. We have a 07 accord and the engine light was coming on for no appert reason. I discovered that it could have to do with the emission system. It seemed that this would happen when it would get gas. I checked the filler cap, no problems. Anyway, I ended up putting a small film of oil on the rubber gasket of the cap. Problem went away. Check your gas cap, put a film of oil on the rubber gasket if it dry. Hope this will help.

This sounds to me like it may be the Mass Air Flow Sensor is bad. There really is no actual way to test this sensor. I would recommend either another scan from a different parts store or possibly replacing the Mass Air Flow Sensor. Hope this helps.

1997 honda accord ex for 9 years , check engine light came on

The first thing to check is if the fuel cap is on tight. If it was loose, just tighen it up and drive it, it will go off on its own. If it was tight, then you will need a shop to read the Trouble Code and they will need to diagnose it from there. Find a shop that does Honda work, keep away from any chain stores.

Honda Accord 98 EX coupe - 3L V6 starting problem

I would take the vehicle to a different shop.
You can go to Autozone , They can scan the vehicle for free. There maybe a codes stored and auto zone can tell you what the code means. You can also check the price of ignition coils with them. The price the shop is asking is rediculous . I am guessing a coil should not be no more then 100.00 and labor time 1.5 hours with diagnosis time. I think you can get an estimate for repairs at Pep boy for a lot less. Good Luck .

Honda accord 2003 v6

If you live near an AutoZone they used to offer free check engine light diagnostics.
See what code they can retreive from the computer with their device and check it against the list of codes. It may not just be a missing Gas cap code. There are hundreds of codes computers can return.

Best Wishes.
