Question about 1991 Honda Accord

1991 Honda Accord

Our 1991 beautiful Honda Accord is sitting in garage, and won't start.  I have had it in for service many many times and next day it won't start. Many new batteries, etc, etc. Now it has sat for six months and it is gathering dust. It has 38,000 miles. Two questions, now we might want to sell it.  Does anyone have a better idea to fix it, and if we want to sell it how much should we ask?  I have told people on its history, but many people still want to buy the car.

A 91 Accord w/ 38 K miles is amazing. Especially if its garage kept. You should have no problem getting good money for it spite the repair. You did not give much detail as to what causes it to go dead battery wise. Alternator could be not holding charge . Also if it just cranks over Hondas are known for having Distributor go kaput.

Good luck but I would buy it for good cash if I were in your city

If it has an alarm on it, it can drain the batt. over the time it is sitting, However, going down overnight means it has another drain on it. Check these, radiator cooling fan continuosly running, light left on in cabin,trunk,or underhood. Other than these, it would take a DC Ampmeter placed over Batt. terminal to check for drain and move from Batt. source through wiring to locate drain or ground.

One common problem with Honda cars is the fuel pump relay.

I have a 93 honda accord and if i start it up after it sits for a long time its runs fine for a while and then it shut off i have to wait a few mins and it starts back up I've replaced the spark plugs fuel...

I would take this vehicle to your local auto repair service garage that services Hondas and ask to have the engine analyzed.

There's a good chance that they can find what is wrong with your vehicle, without putting a lot of 'parts' on the vehicle.

Ideally, the dealership for Honda should perform the work, if they work on Hondas that old

I wish you luck on this.

Restoring an 85 Honda accord

I have experienced problems w/ cars that have sat unused for some time, Here's what to expect: The gas can be a major problem. Gas can go bad after several months, although I have had vehicles sit for a year, and they started and ran fine, hopefully you will have the same luck that I did. If it goes bad, it gets gummy, and clogs up the carb or injectors. Next thing to consider is the brake system. Fluid should probably be flushed throughout the entire system. It's common for brakes to 'drag' after sitting for long periods, especially if brake fluid hasn't been changed in a long time. You may find that brake calipers or brake cylinders are seized up and need to be replaced/rebuilt. Other than that, change the oil and filter, also the air filter, (check for mouse nests in the air filter ) and once it's up and running, change trans fluid (is it auto or stick?). 60k, WOW, what a car! Good luck! Curt
