Question about 1990 Honda Accord

1 Answer

1990 Honda fails to re start after quick enginge shutdown.

While I was showing my daughter how to properly start her car ( not dragging the starterafter ignition) I turned the motor off immediately after starting. It would not restart for a few minutes, but would turn over. The check engine light would not go out upon the key engaging the starter when it failed to start, but it would go out the moment the key engaged the starter for a successful start. Is this normal?

Yes that;s normal usually turning on just the key with turn on some indicator light to be assured that's they are working and no busted. as far the starting you might need a little tune up. if runs and check lighs came on and that's a concerned to address,

My honda crv B20B engine of 1996 fails to start at first attempt but will start at third try also drags at rear wheels when turning either side

Maybe the fuel cut relay, or fuel pump? For the dragging, if it is all wheel drive then try replacing the rear differential fluid, make sure it is genuine Honda Dual Pump fluid.

Car will not turn over. the battery is charged and i can pop the clutch

Does the enginge turn over but not start when you pop the clutch? Or do the tires drag to a stop? If it drags to a stop you might be siezed up. If it turns over but does not start check for spark at the distributer via wire and start from there. Maybe cap-rotor etc. Good luck

1990 Accord turns over always but sometimes wont start unless clutch is pumped???

Now that is spooky. The clutch would have no connection to the engine starting, only cranking.
Its possible the fuel pump relay is failing and for some reason either waiting or the vibration of pumping the clutch is getting it to work.
The relay should be under the dash near the pedals.
I would check fuel pump voltage when it fails to start.

If i go to restart after i turn it off it won't restart

These cars have a main relay. I would replace it ASAP. This may not be the problem but if you do nothing and wait till it doesnt start you may end up stranded somewhere. Other than that if the car works no one will be able to figure it out till it quits for good. You could have someone check the fuel pressure and ramp the fuel pump for proper function. Sometimes a fuel pump that is failing will show a bad electrical pattern in a graphing meter
