Question about 1994 Honda Accord

1 Answer

Acted like it was out of gas, stopped running after 2miles or so

My car quit last night. It was like it ran out of gas and ran about two more miles then stopped. When I pressed the accellerator it would acted as if it wasn't getting the gas. It was not out of gas. When I pressed the gas pedal, it would try and cut off, then when I let off, it would run.. Only ran about two more miles after first symptoms. Had been making a noise as if the brakes were going bad for approximately two days, then acted like this (as if the fuel pump had quit but it is not the problem, you can hear it when you turn the switch on) it is not alternator because it is getting power. What could be wrong with it?

The fuel pump will continue to work yet have a hair line crack in the diaphram of the pump(often overlooked. Creating symptoms you have described.

SOURCE: check engine comes on after awhile

The first thing to do is have the system computer checked for trouble codes, then with those codes we can find the problem with a little luck, Kragen and others do this test for free.

Fuel pump may not supply enough pressure to run engine, but it could be a pluged fuel filter as well. you should get the code pulled out of the computer this will tell you exactly what is wrong or at least narrow down what is causing the problem. It could also be either bad gas with water in it or bad timing or wrong firing order.

I don't know about logical, but it sounds expensive. I do
as much as I can for my 05 Accord, but when I can't
handle a problem, I take it to Honda. Not saying their
mechanics are any better than a local service station,
but most problems are repetitive, and Honda only works
on Hondas and have the proper diagnostic equipment.

Have you replaced the main power relay? It's what causes the 90's Accords to just suddenly shut off and not want to start back for a few. Also, how old is your distributor? It's another problem part on those Accords, that has all these sensors inside that go bad.

Engine quit when stopped at stop light. Acted as if it was choking then died. Tried restarting. Turns over strong, no start. Thought maybe no gas. Added gas after about 30 minutes. Started first try....

Sounds like the fuel pump is going out. Replace the filter first, as it's only $10. If that doesn't fix it, then it's probably the pump, which is $250.

Sounds as if the head gasket is leaking compression pressures into the cooling system. It seems that this problem has just occurred recently. This can be checked at your rad shop. They have a tool that uses a chemical solution that changes color if there is any engine gases present in the coolant.

Lack of power when accelerating

You really should have a code check done. There are numerous items that can give you similar symptoms. Two places to look are the fuel filter (usually overlooked till they gum up, and the throttle position sensor (but test it first with an ohmeter. You will need a manual (vehicle specific ones are available at most larger parts stores and most of those stores also do code testing free)

Car hesitation

had a problem with a grand prix like that once, was the fuel filter, and injectors, all needed replaced, and it only had 89,000 miles.
Would check fuel filter first. Is it possible you got some bad gas??
