    My problem is simular to this.  In the mornings, the car will crank.  After sitting in the parking lot all day, sometimes it will not crank.  But if I let it sit for a while after trying, then try again, sometimes it will, other times I have to let it sit till evening when the outside temp. cools down.  Also, sometimes when I stop to get gas, it will not start and I have to wait 10-15 mins and try again.  Lately, when it doesn't start, I have started spraying starter fluid in the air intake, then it will start.  Any suggestions.

The fuel pump is in the tank, I would check the main relay first, under the dash to the left of the steering column is a black box with a 7 pin connector. ( while under the dash and looking up it would be to the right of the steering column.) There is a Yellow/Black wire that should have 12v while cranking, if it does then check at the pump. If it doesn't have 12v replace the main relay. The fuel pump is under the rear seat, to remove the seat: between the rear seat back and seat bottom is a 10mm bolt holding the seat botton in, it is just to the right of center. There is an access cover over the pump, the cover is glued in, carefully pull up and the glue will release. Check the same Yel/Blk wire for 12v while cranking, if it does replace the pump. 9 times outof 10 it is the main relay.

First, do you have spark? Do you have fuel?

Fuel pump is not in the tank but near the engine/ on the engine.
Broken membrane?

But then whole other list of things can be wrong.

You can dismount the fuelpump and test it by moving the eccentric handle in some leverage setup.

My 93 honda accord killed and now it just turns over but wont start

check fuses, specially fuel pump fuse, also have someone turn the key on while you listen for the fuel pump in the tank, if you can't hear the noise then it could be a bad fuel pump, if that's not the problem, check the timing in the vehicle..

Where is the fuel pump located in the motor of a 1991 Honda Accord LX?

The fuel pump is probably located at the fuel tank. You will find the fuel pump mounted on the top of the fuel tank. There will be an access cover, about the size of a saucer, glued down with caulk under the trunk carpet just behind the back seat, or under the back seat bottom. Once you have located this cover, pry it up--I don't think there will be any screws. You should then be able to unscrew the plate from the top of the tank which will lift the fuel pump and sender unit. PLEASE OBSERVE EVERY PRUDENT PRECAUTION FOR WORKING AROUND FLAMMABLE VAPORS AND LIQUIDS! EVEN IF THE TANK IS EMPTY!

Does the fuel tank have to be removed to replace fuel pump on 93 accord?

no it doesn't here is the factory procedure

Relieve the fuel system pressure and disconnect the negative battery cable with a socket wrench. Remove the spare tire cover (if present) and trunk floor so that you can open the access panel and disconnect the electrical connection from the fuel pump.
  • Remove the fuel pump's electrical connector and disconnect the quick connect fitting from the fuel pump. Remove the fuel tank locknut using tool 07AAA-S0XA100 or the fuel tank retaining bolts with a socket wrench, depending on the year and engine. Remove the fuel tank.
  • Install the new fuel pump using the items included in the kit and be sure to replace the gasket and O-rings. Align the arrows on the fuel tank and pump.

    Car won't start after it seemed like it ran out of gas. still have half a tank of gas. Where is the fuel pump located on a 96 honda accord?

    The fuel pump is located inside the fuel tank itself. Remove the back seat and if you are lucky you can see the pump and remove it. Else you have to remove the gas tank from the car body then you can see and remove the pump. make sure you empty the tank before removing the gas tank.

    91 accord will crank but STILL not start

    cars wont start without fuel so it could always be A) fuel pump B) fuel filter C) fuel injecters dirty. any one of these will cause fuel not to reach your spark plugs and cause then eng not to start
