But then it died two days ago and hasn't started since. The temp guage on the dash was raising at every stoplight, but would drop immediately upon acceleration.

Your car needs a 'complete tuneup'. clean the EGR port, remove the throttle body and clean - don't just spray, its not enough, remove all vacuum hoses and clean and brush all ports that are connected to the plenum, remove anyports that are connected to the plenum and clean them also, remove the plenum and brush and clean the ******. if you have time, take out the intake manifold and clean also....and that should do it.

1992 Honda Accord won't start when hot- main rely?

the relay that you are speaking of would be my primary suspicion. it is called a main relay, they typically run about $50 - $80. these are common for the contacts wearing out and becoming inopperable when hot, and not allowing the fuel pump to power up. good luck!

My 1999 Honda Accord shuts off at random times and at random speeds. Mechanic cannot find the problem. How can I suggest he/she proceed? 125k km After shutdown, difficult starting.

Check out the other posts about this problem including the Civic. Hondas have a serious problem with the main relay. It does happen more when the car is hot. Good luck.
