My car keeps dying

I would check and see if you are loosing spark when it dies. If so check the distributor, the ignition module and coil are notorious for corroding up and fouling out. If this is your case, replace your distributor with a remanufactured unit.

My honda died on me while I was driving.I got it towed to my home,after droppihg the car in my driveway I got in the car and started as if there is nothing wrong with it.what could cause this.could it be a...

The most common reason for this would be a bad distributor or coil, the distributor contains modules and other components, depending on the type of the distributor the coil may also be part of it, i would star by running the engine until it dies and then check it for spark, if theres no spark then i would start with a coil and then if that doesnt help i would replace the dist, note; make sure to replace the distributor cap and rotor also, with coil first, then replace the dist if the car still dies out. good day.

1995 oddessy abs light is on

ABS failures are common in the Honda Accord and the Honda Odyssey, especially during the 1995-1997 years. You will find that your ABS light will come on intermittently and then go out. Finally, the light will come on and stay on until the system is replaced. Honda has been charging owners about $1500 to replace the modulator and accumulator. Honda maintains that this is not a problem that is widespread. The Honda owners' notes show that the problem usually happens betwee n 50,000 miles and 100,000 miles. There is a buzzing associated with the system failing, too.--------------
try bleeding the ABS brake pump and check. You must bleed the abs pump, then reset the abs computer by removing the ABSB2 fuse.--------------

You turn the key and it wants to start but it doesnt Could it be the coil? 1995 honda oddessy

It sounds like a problem i just had. Try this...turn the key as if you are starting it...but as soon as it starts turning over, slightly turn the key as if you were going to turn the car off (just slightly). It is stays running (while holding the key) there is an ingnition switch just under the steering wheel by the brake pedal that needs replacing. It cost me $60.

1995 Honda Accord will not start

First you must check to see what missing. You must have spark at the pugs and gas at the injector for this car to start. See whats missing and get back to me. The 1995 Honda Accord has a history of bad distributor. If there is no spark at the spark plugs replace distributor. However on some models the coil is separate and not in the distributor, if so make sure the coil is working.
