Question about 1988 Honda Accord 4 Door

1 Answer

88 accord lx-i

Usually wouldnt start up in the heat, however, wont start up at all now. turns over fine. When I spray starter fluid, it starts and dies. This has been a problem off and on for about 2 months. When it does start up it runs great, has never cut out on me once its on.

I feel this car gets vapor lock very easy, but that doesnt explain why it wont start now that its cool out?

seems to me a fuel problem is most likely however could it be a relay?

thanks for your time

Lost power andquit. wont start


2 possible problems here. remember to always look at the inexpensive first.
That would be the ignition control module,which is held on by 2 screws beneath the distributor cap. the dielectric grease used in mounting drys out and causes it to over heat and burn out. cost about 35 bucks...10 mins. to install.
that is what i think your issue is...as fords from88-92 are notorious for it.

second possibility is that you have a bad ECM...and though takes 10 mins to install will set you back aboy 125 bucks.

FUEL PUMP MAYBE? is it common?


yes it is very likely it is a fuel pump sticking, to verify this buy a can of spray starter fluid, next time it won't start spray the starter fluid into theintake air hose on the engine, if it starts and then quickly shuts down u need a fuel pump, also replace the filter.

Try smacking the starter with a blunt object ( hammer or something ) Smack it several times while cranking. It may free up. Listen for the click at the starter. Its prabably a bad starter. Common symptom your describing. If it does start replace the starter.

Hi
Try to jump start the car.
Put the jump leads on and leave it for 10 mins
that will charge the battery up
then try and start.
Also check the starter motor.
