Question about 1991 Honda Accord
I live in California, its about 105 outside, never had any problems with it not starting untill yesterday when I stopped to get gas, I cranked the car over but not enough so it stalled, I tried starting again and it wouldnt start. Ive been reading blogs on here with the similar problem. I let the car sit for a couple hours and what you know it started. I had to give it a lil gas though for it to start. Is the problem the main relay????
I had the same problem with my Accord whenever it was in the heat for a couple of years. If you let it sit it would always start. I recently bought a place in the desert and that compounded the propblem as it is always hot. I replaced the main relay and to problem is solved. How I can always count on it to start. Good Luck!!

No, the main relay isn't the problem. Most likely, the high temp made it a bit more difficult to start, then it sounds like it may have 'flooded' (too much fuel, since it had trouble starting right away). Letting it sit for awhile will solve a fuel flooding problem. Make sure the coolant level is where it should be, and car is not due for a tune up. Extreme heat or cold is tough on an engine, and a few small problems can prevent the car from starting in those conditions. How long has it been since plugs, plug wires, distributor cap, rotor, fuel and air filters have been replaced? Just make sure you keep up on the maintenance, and remember. the accord is getting on in years. How many miles? Good luck with the Honda, it's a great car (I have a 91 Prelude and a 92 Accord).
