Question about 1988 Honda Accord 4 Door

1 Answer

Loses power when it rains or wet outside

It appears to only happen in the rain or when it's wet out. It loses power but never quits. If I turn if off and wait a few minutes it starts back up again and away I go. Changed the distributor cap, rotor, spark plugs and wires.

The is the coil pack itself? Is its surface clean?
Try reducing spark plug gap, because then the voltage does not have to rise as high.

    Try looking at the running engine in the dark, so see if you can see any arcing illumination?

Florrboard on drivers side stays wet on 2005 santa fe even when it hasn't rained in over a week losing coolant regularly


Sounds like your heater core has sprung a leak and needs replacing. Verify if the wetness is plain water or coolant. Engine coolant circulates through the heater core (just like a small radiator) and gives up a small amount of heat, which the blower fan picks up and blows out the heater vents. Replacing the heater core is quite easy, or a total nightmare, depending on manufacturer's design-when you have to remove the dash from the vehicle to get at the core-that's what I mean by a nightmare. Check a repair manual for your car to see how difficult the procedure is. Good luck.

1989 golf turns over, new distribitor and starting


Did you use electric grease on these parts, the plug wires,and coil pack need this grease on there. It prevents moisture and wetness from rain getting within the components and causing mis-fire. Did it rain or was it cold outside to produce moisture. Grease is $2 for small pack. I just worked on a 95 VW, changed the cap,rotor button, spark plugs, cleaned throttle body, new air filter, fuel filter. His would run fine, but would cut off sometimes up to hours until the moisture dried. After tuning it up, he no longer has the problem. He goes through water puddles to see if it will quit, but it hasn't yet. Worth a $2-$3 try.
