Question about 1992 Honda Accord
It sounds like it is going to start, but then quits. Sometimes once it is started it will just shut off altogether. We have replaced the plugs, wires, distributor cap and rotor, battery is good. We were told about the tumbler in the ignition. Any thoughts?
Honda's are notorious for hot start problems. Its most commonly the main relay.
Here's a good website to help you find the main relay to see if it needs resoldering:
And the instructions on resoldering:
It really isn't hard to do, but it IS tedious and isn't guaranteed to work. It may be easier to just buy a new main relay. I bought one on Amazon for about $30. Its easy to install. Good luck!

If the key goes in and turns and it starts or trys to start it's got nothing to do with the ignition. Fuel pump or filter is possible. Sounds like fuel delivery if it cranks and cranks but wont start. That's likely the problem. Hope it helps!
