Question about 1991 Honda Accord

1 Answer

My 1991 Honda Accord is having trouble starting. The repair shop says I need a distributor and tune-up that will cost $800 and take a week to get parts. Does this sound reasonable? Jim B in Kenosha, WI

Where is the crankshaft sensor located in a 1991 honda accord

I don't list a crank sensor for a 1991 - probably because it has a distributor. Do you have spark to the plugs ? If not, you'll need a repair book to diagnose the ignition wiring.

I just spent 800 dollars on a tune-up and valve adj. the next day my 1991 honda accord wont start. It turns over but wont start, thinking fuel pump relay switch

Considering it's been 24 hours after the repair, I would seriously look at returning it to the place that worked on it. Turning over without starting means you're either not getting a spark, fuel... or both.

1991 Honda Accord won't start. Battery seems ok

Sounds like the distributor. But you may have a faulty replacement coil..get an exchange and see if it is faulty. I have received many replacement parts that fail prematurely.

How much should it cost for a windshield, tires, signal light, one head light, and a tune up for a 91 honda accord lx I just bought?

Depends on if you want a new windshield or one out of a salvage yard, what quality of tires you want, used or new headlight, and what quality of parts you want to use for the tune up and how complete of a tune up. Also depends on who does the work and where you take it. I would say you are looking at easily a minimum of 700-800 dollars.

Troublestarting sometimes

The igniter in the distributor may be going out. The main relay is under the dash and it very well could be an issue as well, but ususally when it goes bad, the car won't start at all.
