Question about 1992 Honda Accord

1 Answer

92 accord Ignition problem

Was driving my car when I let off the accelerator and the car died instantly. Tried to restart it and it won't fire. Engine turns over just fine but won't start. Checked for fuel at the fuel rail and there is good pressure there. Opened the oil fill and looked in and saw that the timming belt is still there and working. Pulled the wire off of the distributer from the coil and checked for spark and there was none. Was wondering if there was a chance that this could be related to the main relay or if the problem was some where else. Checked the wires that connect to the coil and with the car on one is hot and the other two are neg. Not sure if that helps. Any help would be great!!

    Thank you for the help. After doing alot of trouble shooting I narrowed it down to the ignighter, but still wasn't sure. With your input I went ahead and purchased an ignighter and my car is now operational again!! Thank you!!

I have a 92 honda accord and it keeps dieing

Fuel pump relays are a common problem with Hondas.
I would check the fuel pressure when it won't start.
You may also have a problem with the fuel filter or the pump.
There is a long list of possibilities.
Is the check engine light on ?

I have a 92 honda accord that runs good tell it get to running tempature then dies. what could it be?

If your car runs for about 20 minutes and then dies and won't restart for a while, your distributor is probably the culprit. Also, check your main relay at the same time, to make sure it's supplying power properly to the ignition and fuel systems.

92 honda accord lx dies when put on brakes at a stop

Sounds like your timing belt is one tooth off on the cam, this I have seen before especially if it is a twin overhead cam. One tooth off will make it idle really low when stopping at the light especially if the engine is warm.
