Run the fault codes to get an idea of the sensors that are failing . check tyre pressures and inflate to correct pressure . Check that the brakes are free to spin ( brake drag). Have you increased the load being carried ( extra people )

If you live near an AutoZone they used to offer free check engine light diagnostics.
See what code they can retreive from the computer with their device and check it against the list of codes. It may not just be a missing Gas cap code. There are hundreds of codes computers can return.

Best Wishes.

SOURCE: My 1999 Honda Accord sedan

there can be many reasons for this. clogged air filter, clogged fuel filter, old spark plugs. if you do a tune-up and still the same problem, there are two things you can change, that will be the o2 sensor, which regulates how much gas and oxygen to combine for combustion, or the less likely one would be your etc or engine temperature control, which when bad for some reason also makes your car waste more gas than usual. but o2 sensor is MUCH more likely to go than etc sensor. hope this helps, goodluck

SOURCE: My Honda consumes a lot of fuel and produces a lot of sooth from the exhaust. What could be the problem?

Sounds like it is running too rich (improper fuel air mixture). Is your check engine light on? Most likely a bad o2 sensor or EGR valve.

You must perform an engine control module fault code test as well as test the fuel pressure, if no codes are present and fuel pressure is ok check for a defective camshaft drive belt.

Why does my 93 honda accord struggle to run with the air conditioning on?


The answer is time consuming and very pricey. A bad compressor can cause loss of engine power. As the belts drive the compressor, it requires quite a bit of force to compress the refrigerant to cool the car, which is why fuel economy drops when the A/C system is on. If the compressor is beginning to seize, it requires more power, and with a 18 year old 4cyl engine, there isn't a lot of power left to go around.

Please My Honda Accord 2003 model jerks and also do viberates


It sounds like something is loose...That may be causing your vibrating problems with the engine. You need to life the hood and grab anything that should be bolted down grab it and gently but firmly pull on it. If it moves then you will see it right then and there. Or it can be on the inside of the motor also. The jerking can be from bad fuel....
