Question about 1994 Honda Accord

2 Answers

Car ran fine, I then cleaned the erg ports. Now when I start it, it wont turn over unless I give it gas. Could I just not of put it back right, or think I migth have knocked something loose on it? I just bought this thing, and it had a rough idle but other than that ran smooth, and once I get it going it runs fine.

    it is digital. Update. Replaced EGR valve and gasket, was able to get down the street and it stalled again, had to press foot on gas just to get it to start. Then checked a few things, and then found mount for starter broken, replaced it, put it all back together, started and ran ok, a little rough but ran. It was a little sluggish, so replaced the air filter, looked like someone had poured dirt into it, no it won't start, it trys to but just wont, could i have not put the distribitur back on right? but then why would it start once but then not again. Could the fuel filter be clogged, also changed the spark plugs, and one plug had oil all in it, , whatever help it great.

My 1987 volvo 760 turbo will not turn over. it use to turn over and idle after i give it gas several times and then when driving it will be fine. but then it went to when i turned the car off for a minute...

i would start with a fuel pressure test and see if its within spec, the key on should give you a reading that you can compare with even if it wont start, if you can get it started then you should be able to get a running reading and compare it with the minimum recommended running pressure (that wont give you a volume reading though) ive seen bad pumps give a good pressure reading but couldnt supply volume)

after that i would clean the throttle body with a can of throttle body or mass air flow cleaner, if the sensors in the throttle body get gummed up it will cause similar symptoms i found one that wasn't letting the butterfly close all the way and it ran bad! after it ran like a champ, but every car and situation is different . if it has a mass air flow sensor i would spray that off too but only with the mass air flow cleaner.
once you do all that check all the vacuum lines. a vacuum leak will cause all sorts of problems, can check those by spraying them with carb or brake cleaner and listening for a higher idle when that area is sprayed. ive found broken and damaged vac lines after i sprayed them with no change in idle as well so try to give them a good visual inspection. (when spraying lines try not to spray the exhaust manifold as it could ignite)
if theres a check engine light start there too first! , get the code and research
good luck!
also on a side note if there is a code please dont just throw sensors and parts at it, can get expensive fast and it might not fix the problem, research it! obd1 might not give you much info but it just might get you going in the right direction. also on a car that old the vacuum lines are probably in poor shape might be a good idea to just replace them all, even if it doesnt fix it, if you plan on keeping it i would replace all the vac lines, dont mix them up and go from there

Car has set for a year, but was working fine before it began to sit. Now when I try to start it it wont start. Changed the battery and sprayed starter fluid in the carburetor, it started for a moment then...

This may be a fuel injected engine. On some vechicles when they run out of gas you have to turn the key, but not try to start the car. Give it a few seconds for the gas to feed back through the gas line. Once you turn the key, the fuel pump will start pumping the gas to the engine for the carburator. If that does not work, then give it a little gas, no too much or you could flood the carburator. Try to start the car again.

Car wont start

It is very bad to let your car run out of gas. You may need to give it exessive amount of gas when starting it.
