1999 honda accord problems

Was driving then started sputtering and bogging. that lasted a minute or two. then i gave it gas and got it running smooth again. then immediately the heat started getting cold. feels like air***a/c**/c is on now. when i got home i smelled antifreeze burning. also see antifreeze on the engine. looks like it leaked or sprayed out from somewhere. also previously had the engine light on, and found out it was for the egr valve

    Problem was...Thermostat locked closed, caused bypass hose/heater hose to blow a hole. Thanks for the help.

Have a pressure test done on the coolant system to find position of the leak. have a compression test done to check for gasket and head damage. run fault codes again to ensure that there are no major faults recorded.

SOURCE: 2000 Honda Accord EGR Valve Error P0401

-after you change the part you have to reset/clear the code

-this can be done by either:
(1) using the OBD2 code reader that Autozone used OR since option 2 (below) is very quick
(2) disconnecting the battery for about 30 seconds (this will delete all codes/radio presets/etc) but it will also clear the 'check engine' code
-this is what I do AFTER i write down my radio station presets :)

-hopefully the new EGR valve resolves your issue after you CLEAR the code
...but that code just means a an insufficient amount of Exhaust Gas recirculation (pressure difference) used to keep the emissions in check
-if it comes back, then there are a few other fixes to try also

-let me know if you need further assistance
-please remember to rate me `fix-ya`if it works

SOURCE: accelaration loss of power

I'd have a fuel pressure test done to be sure, it isn't fuel related again. Takes 5 or 10 minutes so cost should be minimal. The other thing that comes to mind is a plugged exhaust. (catalytic converter) Quite possible on a 10yr.old vehicle.

  • Lack of a proper vacuum signal to the EGR Valve from EGR Vacuum Solenoid

I have a 1999 honda accord when i mash the gas it bogs down and at idel it speeds up and slows down by it self in park could my calantic converter be stoped up has no power going up a hill but runs good if...

is the check engine light on, keyon and goes out running
yes, its on running ! then scan it. do not skip this...

no need to guess at all, there are simple cheap test, for all failures
forget idle, idle is the lasting that will work with a ratty running engine.
Bogs, not misfire, (shakes for misfire) is lean burning.
if feels like your are pulling a 5000 trailer of lead.
a long hard smooth bog, not transitory.
im sure you did a tune up and sparks are not 15 years old. huh?
possible causes ( you never said what engine in car.? there are many)
1: low fuel pressure.
2: MAF is dirty (got a maf) or if a MAP EFI , the map vacuum cant reach the mAP, for clogging or it leaks reasons, (hoses?)
3: if MAF system , any air leaks will cause bogs.
called unmetered air, and air cant burn, the ECU must see all air
to add fuel correctly. (the 02 sensor corrects for small intake leaks)
id bet your 02 is not even on online at all. do to gross fueling issues.

this is the basics, good engine,good spark good fueling.
we do simple tests to find this.
if you want to test, say so and engine spec, and we can.

what engine, this fact tell me what EFI system you have.
and i can not fix cars with unknown EFI.
a short list. more world wide, why not say country.?
2.0L F20B5 I4 147 hp (110 kW)
2.3L F23A1 I4 150 hp (112 kW)
2.3L F23A4 I4 148 hp (110 kW)
2.3L F23A5 I4 135 hp (101 kW)
3.0L J30A1 V6 200 hp (150 kW)

92 honda accord bogs out when given gas

You should check for possible trouble codes with a code reader or scanner-would be OBD-1 type reader or scanner.
If no codes are present, it could be a problem with the fuel pump. To check that, have the fuel pressure tested.

1999 honda accord seems like it isn't gettign a steady fuel supply, it keeps sputtering and almost dies but when I pump the gas pedal it revs back up. I just put a new O2 sensor in and it sounds l

First question is - is the check engine light on ?
If yes you should check it for codes next.
You may have to use a scanner to watch the O2 sensor to figure out if it is too lean or too rich. I would also check fuel pressure at the rail with a gauge to make sure pressure is normal. Could be a faulty fuel pressure regulator among other things.

The hissing could be a vacuum leak. Depending on the leak it could be a EGR valve issue, manifold gasket but you also need to check the fuel lines, pump and filter. It could also be a bad catalytic converter.

this might well be the air flow valve it is located in the intake duct work. this works to control the air flow to your motor to optimize volumetric efficiency. when these stick its chiking out the motor this is a good place to start
