Question about 1999 Honda Accord
My car will stall out on me, sometimes when im stopped at like a light or even when im driving. When im driving the rpm's will fall and nothing will respond. I can't push the gas to try to stop it from stalling, the power steering goes out. All the lights turn on. Usually if i give it two or three minutes to sit it'll start up fine. I've changed the spark plugs, ignition contacts, pcv valuve and put injecter cleaner in but im still having problems. Id love to find the reason for this because no one seems to know. Ive also taken it to the honda dealer twice and they claimed they couldnt re-creat the problem.
I fought the same problem for two years. Everything the dealership told me I did myself. Fuel pump, alternator, battery, they even started a small fire under the hood checking the fuel pressure. I kept thinking it was the main relay located near the passengers side in front of the door. They finally changed the relay, charged me for the part but not the labor. Haven't had an issue since then.

It sounds like your fuel filter is clogged or your fuel pump is going bad. When this happens see if you can hear if your fuel pump is running. Turn the key forward to the run position and listen near the gas tank. you should hear a vibrating sound. If you don't hear it at all the pump of pump relay is bad. If you hear it continually your fuel filter, pressure regulater, or fuel line have problems.
