Question about 1999 Honda Accord

1 Answer

Camry shuts down on reverse or drive gear.

I have a toyota camry 1995. Last week end when i came back to my car after shopping, it did not start. Towed it to my house. I have so far changed spark plugs, spark plug wiring, tested alternator to be good, changed battery, used throttle/air control value cleaner. ECT sensor is also good. After cleaning the air control value / throttle (butterfly) yesterday night, today morning i drove the car. it was running fine for three short visits to nearby shop. But again the same problem came back. There is no problem in starting and in park mode. When i put in gear, the engine shuts down. There is no lights on my dashboard except ABS which has been there for years now. Can someone help. The car is running 198k miles. I am planning to get a new 2014 honda vehicle this year but need to wait for another 6 weeks for my new car. is there any way i can solve the problem?

Your idle could be set a little low, mine did that once. also you could be low on trans fluid or the trans brain and/or solenoid/s going bad.

    Hi James, Thanks for your response. I checked the transmission fluid which is good. Engine oil and other fluids are in good level. Also I noticed the problem occurs only in gear.

  • James Lillard Apr 20, 2013

    Has your check engine light shown up at all? even for a couple secs? if so it logged a code and that will probably be your problem. It sounds like the trans control module might be acting up and sending wrong signals. I would have a local mechanic or parts store run the obd2 scanner on it and see if anything pops up. good luck.

    I did not see any light. The only one was ABS which has been there for years now. Thanks. Will be running the scaner with Autozone tomorrow. Thanks for the inputs once again.

SOURCE: 97 honda civic wont start.

If the car has over 100,000 miles on it, you may need to replace the distributer. I don't think the bad gas caused this issue I think it may just be a coincdence. But if you already changed the plugs, wires, distributor cap, and rotor, I would definetly check the distributor.

SOURCE: 1995 Honda accord does not start when car sit for a while

Check your compression. If you don't have a compression checker, take the plugs out, shoot a squirt of oil in each cylinder, replace plugs and crank engine. If engine starts, you are probably looking at a bad set of rings.

SOURCE: My 1997 Honda accord won't start but will crank

This could be the fuel pump relay or the fuel pump. Listen to see if you can here the fuel pump when you first turn the key on. Might be easier to here if someone turns the key on and off while you listen with trunk open. If you are getting fuel to engine then I would check the distributor control module next. I hope this may help.

SOURCE: honda civic 1993 manual will start and run then

Check your air flow to the throttle and the hose's sometimes the heat of the motor melts it a little and airflow gets blocked when in low rpm

SOURCE: 1997 honda accord no spark, motor turns over

Could be the ignition coil or ignition module. Also check the ignition fuse.

1995 Camry is leaking oil on exhaust although doesn't leak when idle only when the gear is in Drive it leaks


What motor? It is probably the rear cam cover gasket and the distributor shaft o-ring seal leaking, a very common situation in this model year. If you replace them, use genuine Toyota parts, as the aftermarket ones do not last in this repair.

We have an auto toyota camry lumiere G. the gears wont always engage. sometimes the reverse wont work either. we notice that when the car is running in neutral the oil level for the gearbox doesnt go down....


Well it sounds like you have a bad problem but we will try and find out why.
First the gear box pump is driven by the engine and that is the flywheel as the torque convertor which is bolted to it is the gearbox pump and 5 out of 10 that is the problem but also theselector on the side of the box could also be loose and needs tighten and adjusting as the pump supplys the pressure to the drive bands both forward and reverse but the oil level dosent have to move as if the bands are good then the most iol they will use is about 1/2 ltr max .So you might find that you need a change over convertor or a new filter in the Gear Box. either way its a Auto Matic Shop job ..

91 camry starts and shuts off when put in drive or reverse


I was an ASE master auto tech for 13yrs and have seen this problem before. It sounds like the idle air control valve on the intake manifold has stopped working and the idle speed is not being controlled(letting the engine idle too slow which causes a stall when put under a load such as putting it in gear). Try giving it a little throttle while putting it in gear if that works let off the throttle if it dies you will know the Idle Air controll is not working.

You might want to send the transmission to flush and replace the ATF (Atomatic Transmission Fluid) and run it for a while. If it keeps the same behavior, consider replacing the clutches, as it is now a gear slipping fault, and sooner or later, you'll end up rideless. Hope this will help you.

I have a 1989 camry the tramsmission was starting to slip on occassion in drive and reverse. While driving down the street without any warning I lost drive and reverse completely. Is there a vacuume pump...


Hi. It is not over for the transmission. But it is for the clutch system inside. Yes, the automatic transmissions got clutch(es) inside as well, they just work with the principle of centrifugal force. Once 1st gear reaches max rev, 2nd gear engages due to the mechanical energy generated inside, so forth and so on, ergo moving gears back and forth depending on speed. The trans repair costs for this camry should be around $500-$800 plus the ATF (Automatic Transmission Fluid). This repair, plus the adequate ATF, most preferably toyota ATF, will give your transmission life another 120,000 miles when 30,000 mile checks are made on time. Hope this will help.
