Question about 1993 Honda Accord

2 Answers

My 93 honda accord ex will not start right away in the mornings. I crank the ignition and it sounds like when a car is out of gas and wont start. I have to do this at least 3 times every morning before it turns on. When it turns on the car feels a little shakey. Once the car has warmed up and ran a while it is fine and I dont have this problem. But if it is parked for a period of time ( when I go to work 8hrs ) the same thing happens again. I have replaced the main relay, cleaned the throttle bottle and it is still doing the same thing. Can someone please help.

You have a small air leak on your fuel line or the line is not holding pressure when the vehicle is off. The reason it is hard to start at first is it is having to pull fuel all the way from the tank and prime itself. You can verify this by pour a small amount of fuel in the throttle body on the first time you start it and if it starts right up then you know this is the issue. If you have an electric fuel pump it maybe a faulty valve in the pump that is letting the fuel come back down the line when it is off instead of maintaining pressure as it should..

My 91 honda Accord EX wagon wont start kinda sounds like its not getting gas but has gas in it


So pull a spark plug wire,carefully, and stick a long thin screw driver into the open end, be gentle, hold the screwdriver about a half inch away from the engine valve cover, and have yer buddy crank it ,do you see a blue spark? Ok if you did see the spark, then that system is functioning. If not then its the ignition system. Next at the end of your fuel rail look for the tire valve looking thingy, and turn the key on an then off, take the little plastic cap off of the thingy(Schrader valve) and in the middle of it you see a small pin, push that pin in and if it squirts out fuel with some pressure then you have fuel pressure, if not, check the fuel pump fuse, and the relay, pump.

Recently my 93 accord ex cranks on and turns off right away after a while it will turn on just fine what can this be??


the car is not recognising the key and is actuating the ignition cutoff (it starts then stops running straight away)try the spare key,if thats okay then you need to get the car/keys recoded as sometimes they do lose the ability to be recognised.

92 honda accord ex wagon wont start


If you are sure you are getting fuel, this could be a problem with the ignition coil or ignitor. Sometimes when they start to go you get an intermittent problem like this, These parts aren't too expensive and they shouldn't be too difficult for you to replace. You can also check if rotating the distributor to adjust the timing makes any difference.

03 Honda Accord EX will occasionally flood on a cold morning; ~17 F etc. After it has warmed up and all other times it starts OK. This does not happen often but I am concerned that it will leave my wife...


When it's very cold and the car will start right away, the most common thing that happens is the engine will flood. When you turn the key to start, the gas is sprayed into the engine. It does not know that the car didn't start and will continue to spray gas as long as the key it turned to start. That is why you should not crank for longer than 20-30 seconds at a time.
Then if it will not start, hold your gas pedal all the way to the floor, and the gas spray is stopped, so that the extra gas can be expelled. You can now try to start agian normally.

Wont start... My 93 accord died several times the last time it died and hasent started since. The tach and speedo were jumping erdadically while going down road. Now every thing will work except for power...


sounds like the igntion switch has failed, not the key cylinder but the actual electrical switch, a common problem on these earlier honda's, the bit about when the windows work is the dead give away

Cranks but wont start


this is a classic symptom of a defective fuel pump pressure check valve, it is not holding pressure after the car is turned off, this causes the problem you have, the check valve is part of the fuel pump and that is located in the gas tank.
