    Thanks to CHAD (ever so much) he advised about the "main relay".  I went to a "new recommended mechanic", not the DEALERSHIP this time, (who only "diagnostically" checked it for $250, and then said there was nothing wrong (since then I have replaced a starter and TWO batteries) and FINALLY Chad told me this.  Yesterday I had the main relay replaced (part $68.00, labor $40.00).  If this works on the NEXT hot day we have here in PA, that will be the true test.  Please all, keep your fingers crossed for me.  I LOVE THIS WEBSITE, thank you also, FIXYA!

Had same problem, found a answer on internet. Under the driver dash far left top of dash is a PGM-FI Main Relay (fuel pump relay) this relay is known to be faulty during hot days, due to bad solder connections. This causes fuel pump not to run. When it will not start turn key on and listen for fuel pump to hum no hum no fuel. I changed my pump thinking it was bad then found that the relay was bad. Borg part #R3265 O Reily parts $43.

Crank angle sensors and ignition modules, ignition coils that are faulty behave like this when faulty try pouring water over crank sensor when it stops and see if it starts after being cooled down if it restarts then you found which is faulty.
you need 3 things for engine to run
air
heat(spark)
fuel
which one is missing when vehicle wont start?

Car turns but won't stay running


Check fuel pump fuse and all other fuses, check brake switch, Also, a worn ignition switch will cause the car to start sometimes but not always. Try turning the switch to on position, then jiggle the key around in the switch while pushing in a bit...now start the car...did it start? If yes, replace switch and/or key cylinder....

1991 honda accord lx cooling fan


Some vehicles have sensors that can control the electric fan with the ignition off to keep the heat buildup that naturally occurs right after turning off the engine. This can prevent hard starting that can happen with a hot engine. If it is doing this an abnormal amount, the sensor that is operable with the ignition off may be failing. Before turning off the ignition, check to see if the engine temperature is pushing the 'red zone;' if it is, then the fan operation may be normal but your engine may be running hot.

Ensure your spark plugs,wires (ignition coil and spark) and your filters (air and fuel) are within 2 years of installation It's erratic at 800 rpm as the engine is cold and they like the 2200 range for 3 minutes before they kick down on their own. Press the pedal twice before inserting your key. The owners manual states depending on the outside temperature, the engine will require more priming. Update if possible.

Car won't start when it's hot outside


My daughter's 1991 Honda Accord did the same thing. I discovered that the main relay had to be replaced. Apparently the solder used in the original main relay was poor and would actually "soften" in the heat and cause a disconnection. When the cabin temperature dropped, the solder would cool and reconnect. Anyway, replacing the main relay worked. My daughter's car has not had this problem since.
