Hi there. Sounds like the igniter, which is a small silver electronic control unit attached to the distributor by two small screws, needs replacing. Honda have had problems with this particular igniter and the symptoms you describe point in that direction. I'm assuming the vehicle has been regularly maintained becasue the other issue might be that the spark plugs need to be replaced and another tip is to check out the rotor arm within the distributor cap. Again, Honda had a few problems with 'tracking' within the centre of the rotor arm. If the basics are fine, then it's probably the igniter giving you the problem. Best regards. Scottech

I have a 1992 honda accord it will start one time and not then next once its started it runs great but never know when it will start or not?


Keep a hammer in your trunk.If it doesn't start,tap on the starter with a hammer 3 or 4 times,not too hard,not too soft.,then try to start.It may take several tries.If you don't know where it is,call a dealer or a shop,someone will give you the free information.It sounds like the starter.They normally do not faill 100% but yours is still in better shape than most I hear about.Good luck!

MY HONDA TAKES A LONG TIME TO START WEN ITS COLD, AN ONCE ITS WARM IT WONT HAVE ANY POWER?


2 things to check on these would be the fuel filter and the catalytic convertor. if either are plugged up, it will not accelerate very well. if the catalytic convertor is plugged up it can do internal engine damage. if after running it for about 15 minutes look underneath the vehicle and if any part of the exhaust is cherry red, replace it.

Bottom radiator hose cold. upper radiator bulging.


The fan won't come on because the thermoswitch is in the bottom of the radiator, without coolant flow the switch never gets hot. Just because a part is new doesn't mean it is good, is the thermostat an aftermarket part ? I would take out the thermostat (leave the gasket) and see if the bottom hose gets warm. If the bottom hose does not get warm, you may have a blockage or bad water pump
