Why does my 93 Honda Accord run fine and then dies going down the road and will start again and die again?


There is a black fuel relay way up under the top left driver side dash that breaks its main wire solder connections on the circuit board under over-heat conditions. Resolder that relay. Starting fluid will show that you have lost fuel delivery under no start conditions. You can use the breather hose from the valve cover for this test.

Died while driving and wont start


CK your distributor rotor ....pull it off and look in side the hole where it fit on the distributor shaft if it really black in side replace it . If OK then either your ignition module ( inside the distributor a little black block with wires going to both end of it ) or the Stator inside the distributor has shorted out . The stator is kinda hard to change if you don't have the right tools . i think rebuilt distributors from the parts store have gotten a lot cheaper then they use to be ; you may want to change the whole thing a new one will come with a new module and stator
