    93 accord , in usa? on all uSA cars open hood, look up, see EPA sticker, and bingo, engine type stated there. as ive stated many times,, what country? they offer different engines in diffr.counries. so where was car first sold? here are my guesse, imagine a car, with all things missing, just and engine on an engine stand and you wondering why it stalls. see, ?

    best i can tell the engine starts cold and stalls, it will never get hot because it keeps stalling, the owner needs to do the 1st check , does using a fast right foot, on the throttle pedal, save the stalls. this is test 1 and is the move revealilng test, and is 100% free. no tools, no books, etc.

  • _-__-___-_

    adding to this is: The 5th generation North American Accord was launched on September 9, 1993,,, read the wiki, "under honda accord"" you posted under CIVIC, but is and accord. so look at that wiki and imagine my fustrratiion, you cant tell location. lots of accords and engines world wide, vasy differences.. if you drove to my shop, id not have to ask country, i live there see? and i open the hood and the engine shouts to me it type,as does the hood sticker, to diagnose the the mech needs to know 2 things, what engine it is, and what EFI it is. etc. there RE F22 engines and H22 engines, used. see this: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Honda_Accor...

    so the engine stalls. what does the fast right foot do, nothing or cures stall.? ever do a 60k mile servic on this car ever? or a new timing belt (im guessing the engine) did you know honda' engines grenade when the belt snaps??/

  • _-__-___-_
    _-__-___-_ Dec 28, 2013

    stall reasons, never tuned up, ignoring the CEL lamp glowing all year, and not it stalls, ISC stuck closed, timing belt sliipped, EGR stuck wide open or a bad engine (huge list here) low fuel pressure. leaking or clogged injectors, there is my short list . what we do is , read the engine ID on the EPA sticker ah, F22, then do some tests. i cant do tests, with out the engine size and type. can not. no one can. but we can do the fast right foot test and check spark plug tips for dry or wet. for near free.

  • _-__-___-_
    _-__-___-_ Dec 28, 2013

    if the car runs with a fast foot ,we then look at the CEL lamp is it glowing, telling you the ECU is unhappy,? yes? the install the diagnostic jumper and read out the error codes...

    country USA, fast foot makes it stall

  • _-__-___-_
    _-__-___-_ Dec 29, 2013

    ok , that means,its lacking air for the stall (not ISC stuck closed) and (not EGR stuck open) it means (bad engine,bad spark or bad fueling)

    ever do a tune up? on it, what if the fuel filter filter clogged. new spark plugs? cap , rotor, air filter, non of these parts last 20 years.

  • _-__-___-_
    _-__-___-_ Dec 29, 2013

    on old cars, i lead off with , a real tuneup, then compression, oops, 80psi, so the timing belt slipped, not enough slip yet to bend valve. , then i start it and with my timing light attached, it see if spark is dropping out, at start and stall..

  • _-__-___-_

  • _-__-___-_
    _-__-___-_ Dec 29, 2013

    key off, insert diag jumper, crank for 5second( or let it stall) then keeping key on, watch the lamp flash, read the codes at the CEL lamp, the jumper plug is here :::: To access the DTC memory, connect a jumper wire between the check connector terminals. On Accord and Civic models, the check connector is located under the RH side of the instrument panel.

    if the tune up parts are bad, the ECU will not understand that. it assumes spark is good. that is why we do a tuneup., its like 1st step. or waste vaste amount of time trying to burn fuel with weak spark, how many miles on car, when was the last full 60k interval tune up. lost the operators gide , that details all that. here it is.http://justgivemethedamnmanual.com/honda...

  • _-__-___-_
    _-__-___-_ Dec 29, 2013

    see page 112, and the 60k column. and 90k the timing belt, the cam and rotor is listed as inspect but we all know , these parts carbon track and can be bad with very little signs of damage . and never last 20 years, you running relic tuneup parts.i can tell in a glance the (brands)

1998 honda passport ran outta gas.cant start it...can anyone provide step to step actions i can tak?


well if it only ran out of gas, and did not stop for some other reason, then just filling with gas and normal starting should work just fine. sometimes it does take a bit of cranking to get fuel running again.

2002 Sunfire with 2.2 ECOTEC Car acted like it ran out of gas. Would crank, run roughly a few seconds, then again acted like it ran out of gas. The next day and the next 3 days it has performed...


have the fuel pressure and volume tested with a gage.this sounds and acts like a fuel pump problem.check the fuel filter as well and replace anyways.when it won`t start but cranks can you hear the fuel pump running.listen at the fuel filler neck with the gas cap off.if you can`t listen under the car at the fuel tank you should hear it running/if not hit the gas tank and if the car starts then the pump needs replacing.you should check to make sure you are getting spark at the spark plugs to eliminate an ignition problem but i think its fuel.

HELP! HELP! SOMEONE PLEASE ! 2001 chevy blazer fuel problems


I would check to be on the safe side the fuel filter is going in the right direction. The arrow is pointing towards the engine away from the fuel tank, Then you need to make sure the fuel pump wiring connections are good contact and did not come loose when driving.

1993 honda civic


Try checking the snorkel tube between the air cleaner and the intake. Open the hood, and have a friend try to rev the engine, and watch the tube...my '92's was collapsing and starving the engine, couldn't get more than 3500-4000 rpm. Could also be a fuel pump problem like low pressure or bad line.

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.
