Mike, it could be several different things, start with all your plug/ coil connections and alternator. fuel filter or injectors could be clogged, a vacuum leak in the fuel injection system, intake manifold, or vacuum hoses, in correct gap on the plugs. Lastly some faulty emission system components. I hope it is one of the easier fixes. Good Luck!

My 91 accord has been giving me grief 4 months. Sure would appreciate any help - TX GREASEMONKEY, u have been on the mark b4, want to take a shot... Its my only transportation and has been down 4 a month....


When you say you have fuel, do you have normal fuel pressure at the injectors ? Because Honda cars are known for faulty fuel pump relays.
The relay stops powering the pump when it gets hot but will start back up when the relay cools off.

I have a 95 Camry 4 cyl. I had the Distributor changed last year along with the timing belt, plugs, wires, and fuel filter. Now when I drive it goes about 7 miles and shuts down, after about an hour it...


Lets start at the beginning. The engine computer grounds the pump relay. The relay gets power from the EFI relay when the key switch is on and from the starter fuse when the key switch is in the start position. Do you know if the pump relay is getting power from both sources and a ground from the computer ? Can you run a hot wire to the blue black wire going to the pump and keep it running ?

2000 chevy silverado v6 vortec engine, died driving, changed fuel pump, plugs wires, etc. and still wont start. ever heard of that


1st, check to see if the fuel pump runs for 3 seconds when you turn the key to run (not start). If it doesn't run, then check the fuel pump fuse & relay in fuse box under hood, if OK, (spray starting fluid in the intake to see if engine fires at all), if no fire then look towards the ignition as the problem. There are 5 things need to start an engine: 1. fuel (delivered & pressure), 2. air, 3. spark (distributor/ignition module or pickup coil), 4. rotation & timing, 5. compression. any of these that are wrong or not there, the engine fails.

Take out the main relay and check the solder joints.
Reheat the solder joints if you see any tiny cracks.
You can also buy rebuilt main relay from eBay.

If the main relay does not solve the problem, you will need to check the distributor. Open the distributor cap and the rotor and see inside and make sure there are no oils leaked from the bottom side of the distributor through oil seal. Replace the distributor with a rebuilt or new one. There are many distributors listed at eBay.

It was runing good then just died will not start back up thought it might be fuel pump but not sure yet


I know in the mid 1970s Chevy had a modulator chip inside the distributor that would cause the same exact symptom they cost around $25 and can be found at your neighborhood autoparts store.
A quick check for spark will tell you if this might be the problem

I have a 1991 740 volvo, was driving down he street and it died,after i pulled over it wouldn't start


Check if you still getting fuel and sparks, two items need to keep the car running. Check fuses and fuel pump relay, if needing new relays go to the junk yard and get couple of them for nothing. Checking making sure you getting fuel and fuel pump working properly, unplug the the main coil wire to distributor so the car wont start we just want the engine just to turn over. under the hood, locate fuel filter, disconnect the line to or from it, wrap the bottom of the hose with old clothe firmly and to remember to point the house downward away from your face so it wont splash at you. and have a friend turn ignition over just like starting, see if the fuel come out with good pressure. if fuses and relay check out, your crank sensor may be bad, being 91' strong possibility. crank sensor send info to computer telling to send fuel to your injectors. For sparks, make sure you plug the main wire to distributor back. pull one plug wire and get spare plug, plug it and ground the plug and have a friend turn the engine over and see if you getting sparks, do not touch the plug, big shock. No sparks, check the coil if you getting 12v, if yes, than your cam sensor is faulty. The cam sensor work just like the crank sensor but telling the computer to send sparks to the distributor. Common for older European cars, crank and cam sensor tend to become faulty after years of service due to age and heat abuse.

1994 honda accord will start runs awhile then cuts out .


Could be fuel delivery; fuel filter clogged, worn fuel pump.
Does it still have battery power when it dies, cranks but no start? How long does it take to start again? When does this occur, engine hot/cold? Does it happen all the time or sometimes? How long does it run until it cuts?

94 accord won't start


The Main Relay under the dash, close to the steering. Brown or Gray box with about 8 wires tend to go bad at relay contacts inside. To troubleshoot, turn ignition key to on position and tap the relay box, you should hear fuel pump activate. If it starts, the relay is bad. If it does'nt, you need to check voltage and grounds at relay wires. Everything else you mentioned seems to be okay. I had 3 hondas, different years that have done the same thing. Good luck
