Try checkin your idle air control. most of the time it is a vacuumn line going into intake.pull it off and if the car revs up dont worry, it wont hurt it. if it does simply put it back on, if it dies you have a bad vacumn.

Starts ok run for a while and it dies i wait 1 on 2 min. and starts again.


Observe if before it dies if the idle is low or rough. It may just be a timing issue or you need to have the vacuum hoses or IAC valve cleaned out. If you have a scanner have it connected to the car to scan for error codes.

1992 Honda Accord wont start when cold out Fires but wont stay running


this could possibly be an iac or idle air control valve issue. the iac valve controls the amount of air that bypasses the throttle body in order to maintain proper idle, and is mounted on or very near the throttle body on the intake manifold. check the connector to ensure it's tight and the connections are clean, not corroded. i'd recommend replacing the iac valve.

2005 honda accord, rough idle and malfunction light on. Problem with idle will clear but light stays on. Car has 147,000 miles. I went to clean off the engine and the problem started. Car will start...


I would take it to a local Auto Zone, or Advance Auto, they can run it through the diagnostic computer and see what codes are tripping, most likely it's going to be for a cylinder mis-fire, i would try making sure all the plugs are good, and check and see if all the plug wires are secured tightly.

I just bought a 91 honda accord se and when you go to stop it stalls or suts off. any ideas of what may be causing this


Check your 91 Accord's ignition coil. The coil goes bad at apprx. 150k miles and cause the car to run rough, hard to start(long cranking time) in the morning, stall after the vehicle has warmed up, cut out while driving and backfire horribly when accelerating from a standstill.
