Question about Honda Accord
Well it can only be of 2 things.It was running fine until this problem started. Its either not getting gas or its not getting spark. You said you ck. the spark. This tricky you may not get it right and still have spark. I do not recommend holding the wire while turning over the eng. All tho its happened to me a few time. I have had 3 little Honda's and 2 of them had a similar problem. The fuel filter was clogged so tight that the fuel pump couldn't push the gas up to the carb. It all so caused the fuel pump to sound louder. Their is a canister on the fire wall with pipes coming out of it top and bottom. It may be in a different place now. Just buy one and ask the Parts store people to locate it for you. An easy fix. All so ck. the fuel pump with the feed gas line off. run the pump & gas should be squirting out. if not. it may need a primming. Have some thing to catch the gas as it runs out.
Now if the pump won;t send the gas , try primming it, by putting the hose from a shop vac over the gas line. Creat a good tigh seal . **** the gas up the pipe while the pump is running. This wont heart the shop vac. just clean an air it out well . I personaly saved $225.00 for a new pump. I hope you can save you a bunch. Good luck DFD

1. Check for poor mating of one connector to another. Terminals may not be fully seated. Check for improperly formed or damaged terminals. Check wire to terminal connections.
2. Check for poor connection from ignition coil to ground or arcing at the spark plug wires or plugs.
3. Check for intermittent short to ground on data or UART circuits of Data Link Connector (DLC) or in Malfunction Indicator Light (MIL) circuit.
4. Check for poor connections in PCM ground terminals.
5. Check for loss of diagnosis trouble code memory. To check code memory on fuel injected models, disconnects MAP or TP sensor and run engine at idle until MIL comes on MAP or TP sensor code should be stored and retained in memory when ignition is turned off. If code is not stored, PCM is faulty.
6. Check for electrical system interference caused by a defective relay, or a PCM-driven solenoid or switch may cause sharp electrical surge. This type of problem will normally occur when faulty components is operated.
7. Check for aftermarket parts which may not have been produced to manufacturer's specifications.
8. Check for any open diodes in A/C engine wiring.
9. Check for improper installation of electrical accessories such as auxillary lights or 2-way radios.
10. Ensure ignition control wires are kept away from spark plug wires, distributor wires, distributor housing, ignition coil and generator. Ensure ground wire from PCM to distributor or ignition control module is connected to a good ground.
Hope this helps resolving the issue of your car...
