Question about 1992 Honda Accord

1 Answer

93 accord lx problem

Ok here we go,
so the car one day wouldn't start. i did a tune up rotor, oil, oil filter, spark pugs &wires, fuel filter, fuel pump, air filter, and even the valve gasket. then the car started to try and turn off on me at work and it finally gave out. i changed the distributor and it went back on. after a week it went back out changed it again a started fine again. it went out a third time, only this time a changed the coil with it (coil not in distributor). now today going to school it started to wanna turn off again. got there a realized that one of the spark plug wires was popped out all the way, put it back in its place. then going home it started fine and drove it with no problem. can that be the issue why i went through so many distributors?
i am still getting some oil in the spark plugs? i did change the valve gasket.
one more thing my car shacks when i come to a complete stop what can this be? thank you in advance.

    ok, so the first time i was leaving my house the car just wouldn't start. i did the tune up like i said. then a week or so later i was driving to work the engine started to try to go off. i would step on the gas and it felt like it was not responding. like dancing, it did that until i got to the parking lot when it finally turned off on me. then it wouldn't start at all. until a bought the distributor which later it burned like three times. it would take me fine and then i would get back to the car and it wouldn't start. then i changed the fuel pump and main relay and coil. i thought that would of fixed it until today. it started to do the same thing like when it did when i was going to work. luck me it didn't turned of and fried the distributor. then i noticed that one of the spark plug wires was popped out of its place. pushed it back and drove home from school with no problem. don't know whats wrong.

Sounds like your valve seals are gone. Expensive, unless you can do it yourself.

My car sputtering 1998 honda accord lx 2.3


Start with a routine tune-up. New air filter, new spark plugs, distributor cap and rotor button. Make sure the sparkplugs are gapped correctly before installing. Plug wires are less likely to go bad, so I would hold off on that.

You've already eliminated the spark plug & wireset, distributor cap & rotor.
Sounds like your car needs a tune-up, specifically, the PCV (positive crankcase ventilation) valve, and/of the EGR (Exhaust Gas Recirculation) valve.

Components checked/replaced during a tune-up are:
air filter
motor oil
motor oil filter
breather filter
fuel filter(s)
fuel strainer
PCV valve
EGR valve
spark plugs
spark plug wires
ECM or distributor cap & rotor
cabin air filter
transmission oil filter
transmission oil
engine coolant
check all vacuum hoses and lines

Troubleshooting the no-start condition - from the 1990 Mitsu Mighty Max Repair Manual:

Priority Action Part Type -- Cause
1 Inspect Battery -- Battery Discharged or Faulty.
2 Inspect Battery Cable -- Corroded, Broken, Shorted or Poorly Connected Battery Cable.
3 Inspect Distributor Cap -- Distributor Cap Cracked or Burned.

8 Inspect Starter -- Starter Motor Faulty.
9 Inspect Fuel Pump -- Low Fuel Pressure.
10 Inspect Solenoid Switch -- Faulty Starter Solenoid Switch.

12 Inspect Fuel Injector Pressure Regulator -- Faulty Fuel Injector Pressure Regulator.
13 Inspect Ignition Switch -- Improperly Connected or Faulty Ignition Switch.
14 Inspect Starter Drive -- Faulty Starter Drive.
15 Inspect Fuel Injector -- Dirty or Worn Fuel Injectors.
16 Inspect Fuel Pump Strainer -- Clogged or Dirty Fuel Pump Strainerat.
17 Inspect Engine Control Computer -- Incorrect Operating Information Being Delivered and Sent From The EEC.

Hesitation on take off and a miss while goin down the road in my 1994 2.3l ford ranger


Start with a complete tune-up

Plug wires can cause this.

Do spark plugs, spark plug wires, distributor cap, rotor cap, spark plug wires, fuel filter, air filter, oil & oil filter.

People often neglect these simple things which could save your motor, maintain it's efficiency plus improve gas mileage.

1992 honda accord lx sounds like a go cart, it goes - putt, putt, while driving. i just had an oil change, could that be it, italmost seems like it wants to cut off.


When did you last have a tune up? Sounds like it's not running on all four cylinders. Check the oil to make sure they filled it to the correct level, but the oil change should not be related. With the engine cold, check the wires at the distributor cap, to make sure they are inserted completely, also that they are connected properly to the spark plugs. If you're not sure when it was last tuned, or it's been quite a while, replace the plugs, plug wires, distributor cap, and rotor. It won't cost much for parts, and you can do it yourself to save $$. Let me know how it goes, or if you need further help. Curt
