Pull the mains relay up to the left of dash board. Remove cover from relay assy and check solder connections on pcb where relays are soldered in. Resolder if bad and that should solve your problem.

Sounds like injectors but depending on the car could possibly be the timing

I was driving my 1991 honda accord an timing belt broke iam woorried that it might have damaged engine what should i look for i was going to replace belt an try to get back running any advice thanks


Honda engines are what they call interference engines. This means when a timing belt breaks, the pistons hit the valves and bend them. You will need to remove the cylinder head and get the bent valves replaced if you want it to run correctly. Impossible to know how many valves are bent, depends on how fast the engine was turning when the belt broke.

Remove distributor cap, crank engine, see if distributor rotor turned, if it don't turn, bad timing belt, replace, if it does turn, more then likely, ignition control module, if timing belt bad. made br will help you to set in bad on timing, when replacing timing belt, hope this was very helpful.

If a timing belt break's on a 1990 honda accord does it bend the valve's


I'm not a Honda expert, but when my Ford Escort belt broke the motor kept trying to run and yes the motor eventually blew. It ran on 3 cylinders, then 2. Hope this helps.

I was driving down the road home from work yesterday and my 91 accord just shut off. i tried restarting it but it wont start. sounds like it wants to but wont.. what could it be.


Could be one of a few problems by your description. Ignitor unit(inside distributor housing) has failed.which would have no spark. P.G.M.F.I main relay failed,lose of fuel. Or very possibly has a timin belt that has jumped time or broke,this either would sound(if broke)like engine is spinning extremely fast will cranking over,(can also have someone watch through oil cap hole and see if there is cam movement while cranking over)if jumped time engine will try and stumble start but not quite,possibly backfiring while trying to start.either or requires belt replacement minimum and very good possiility of bent valves.how many miles?

My Accord LX doesn't start, I turn the key and the car appears to be choking...


Check the timing belt to see if it's broken by removing valve cover and upper plastic timing cover. If it's broke at the bottom you might not be able to tell unless someone turns the motor over once and the cam doesn't move. Or you can pull on the belt until it comes out or if it is really loose. Another thing to check is the Main Relay under the dash above your left foot/gas pedal. It's mounted above the cruise control module. You can get in there and tap it while someone is turning the key on to start it. If it starts, you have found your problem. Replace it.

Info about timing belt


Chances are slim. Just align your marks, install a new belt and without any sparkplugs, turn the engine by hand. If anything's hitting, you'll feel it.

Leak from the water pump


  • first of all you are probably going to need a torque wrench for the crank shaft pulley bolt it has 225lbs.of torque or more.I just did one on my 1991 honda accord dx .you have to take off a/c belt ,alternator etc. on the crank pulley.(I took it to a shop and they heated the 3/4 in. bolt and used torque wrench. I broke a half inch breaker bar trying to get it offf) next use puller to take off crankshaft pulley.support motor and remove motor mount bracket. take off upper and lower timing belt covers.take off timing belt and other belt using the tensioners.take off and replace water pump CHECK ALL TIMING MARKS with #1 piston@TDC. There are about 6.

Car wont start


I had a problem with a 1991 Honda Accord and the fix was a weird one. My car would run fine and start fine if it was cold outside. If I left my car in the sun and the interior got hot, my car wouldn't start.

(Since you drove to San Diego this may be the problem)

I found out that if I left my windows open and let the inside of the car cool down, it would start. Strange.....

Apparently, there is a main relay box under the steering wheel that triggers the starter motor and fuel injection. In the Honda's made around 1991, the contacts in that box would expand and would not let the electricity flow.

I guess you can repair the relay box, but replacing it might be a better bet ($50). I took my car to three different mechanics before any of them had heard of this problem.

The fix was simple, but the problem was hard to diagnose.
