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.

This is a long shot, but maybe the fuel pump relay or pump is shutting down when it gets hot. It sounds like a fuel problem to me. Good-Day! Hope this helps! also check and or replace fuel filter, and air filter.

94 camaro wont start...no firefrom the coil has new icm , coil , fuel pump


Check the icm plug with a led testlight for pulse while the engine is cranking. Test the wire connector with the small wires going into the coil for pulse.The v8 has a opti-spark distributor behind the waterpump that is prone to failure. It has the pickup inside it that tells the icm when to spark. If no pulse at icm distributor is bad. If pulse at icm but not at coil, icm or wiring between icm and coil is bad.The coil also needs pos.+ power on 1 terminal to operate. Be SURE to check the security light on the dash. If VATS [vehicle anti theft system] fails its usually within the 2 wires going from the key chip in the ignition tumbler to the body control module. Mine were purple and tan.Trying to start it with the wrong key can put it in lockout mode also. There are bypass modules available online for vats problems or you can even install a resistor in the wire to bypass the keychip part and the door alarms still work.

92 Honda Accord it gets spark fuel it will crank but wont start


In my case, it turned out to be a harness from the steering column to the fusebox (inside) that they called the "pigtail". (It connects to the ignition switch; I think it actually IS the ignition switch on one end and a large connector on the other going to the fusebox, about 20" long.)

MAKE SURE SPARK PLUGS AND WIRES IN GOOD CONDITION, REPLACE DISTRIBUTOR CAP AND ROTOR,CHECK FOR SPARK AT SPARK PLUGS,IF YOU DONT SEE SPARK CHECK TO SEE IF POWER GOING TO COIL IF NOT CHECK IGNITION FUSE.IF FUSE OKAY AND POWER GOING TO IGNITION COIL,COIL FAULTY OR IGNITER UNIT FAULTY. CHECK FOR FUEL PRESSURE MAKE SURE FUEL FILTER BEEN CHANGED.FUEL PRESSURE SHOULD BE 40 PSI. IF YOU GETTING SPARK AND FUEL. YOUR IGNITION TIMING OFF OR VALVE TIMING OFF DUE TO A WORN TIMING BELT.

My 1996 honda accord wont start. Engine turns over but wont start up. had the problem yesterday hit the distupter with a hammer it started up after. today nothing


You might have a bad ignition coil or ICM both located inside the distributor. I'll just replace them both. I hope you didn't damage the distributor when you hit it with the hammer, it's about $200 part new. good luck

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.
