Question about 1993 Honda Accord

1 Answer

Why did the motor die while I was driving down the road when I turned on the a/c and fan?

It was running fine and then overheated three days ago. Fixed some clamps on hoses running good again. I was driving it yesterday running fine, turned on the a/c and fan and it died going down the road. It is leaking antifreeze underneath but not enough to cause overheating. Let it sit for a few minutes and it will start again. Runs for a few minutes and dies out again.

    I still think it is coolant getting into the engine. Loosing coolant other than outside leak? White smoke from exhaust?

If the engine overheated then the antifreeze may be getting into the engine, indicating a cracked head or block. check for water in oil via dipstick. .

Testimonial: "I checked, no water on the dipstick. It will run sitting idle put it in gear and it will drive a little distance and stall out again."

SOURCE: Car dies while driving, now it won't start sometimes

Could be a fuel pump that is going bad. Some times when fuel pumps go bad they cavitate and pump not just gas but also air. If you get too much air in the line and not enough gas the car won't start. Have a mechanic check your fuel line pressure.

Why does my 93 Honda Accord run fine and then dies going down the road and will start again and die again?


There is a black fuel relay way up under the top left driver side dash that breaks its main wire solder connections on the circuit board under over-heat conditions. Resolder that relay. Starting fluid will show that you have lost fuel delivery under no start conditions. You can use the breather hose from the valve cover for this test.

is the car running hot? some cooling fans never come on going down the road because the air comjng through the front of the vehicle keeps the car cool enough that it doesn't need to come on. but if it is overheating then you may want to check the cooling fan relay.

You don't say what engine is in it (2.7 or a 3.2) but you need to check to see if it is getting spark at the plugs-it may be the crank sensor, weak links in Chryslers of this era. pull a plug just to be certain it is getting gas, but I'd guess it is a crank sensor.

Engine overheated, now car won't start without giving it gas


Some cars cut off as a fail safe to overheating especially on newer cars. The computer controls the fans and if they are not working the computer is probably telling the car to shut off. Have you replaced the motors already, if not, this is what's happening. Once you replace the motors it should run fine. I wouldn't suggest driving it too much with this problem as it may affect the computer by giving it false info.
