Question about 1994 Honda Accord

1 Answer

I have a 1994 Honda Accord LX, having cranking problem. Sometimes it will start, then it immediately dies. Most times, it will just sit and crank without starting at all. Before this, the car would occasionally not start after driving it for a while, but if I waited 10-20 minutes, it would crank. This problem eventually got worse, leading to the current problem described first.

As the car has cranking problem,Check the crank shaft position sensor in the distributor assembly.It can also be located on the main crank pully or the flywheel on the distributor-less engines.Also check the idle air control valve.Over time, the IACV becomes clogged with dirt, typically resulting in an engine which idles roughly or an idle speed which fluctuates. The valve can sometimes be repaired, but since it must be removed to do so, it is often better to simply replace it.The IAC valve located on the throttle body.---------------
If the problem repeats again n again then its advisable to get car scanned at diagnosis center to get error codes, At diagnosis center you will receive the error code.As per the error code it will detect the exact faulty part in the car due to which the problem is occurring.For more help :--- at www.autozone.com its absolutely free to get car scanned.
But if no code is retrieved then the problem has to be located manually by testing the parts.

There are some possibilities which you will have to check in this case:--
1) First of all check the power and voltage to the battery. With meter it will show exact 12 volt if the battery is charged. If the voltage is less get the battery charged at local auto repair shop. If the battery is internally drained and not getting charged then its time to replace the battery.
2) When you crank the car do you see spark coming at the spark plug? If no then its time to check the spark plugs and coil pack. If the spark plugs are not worn out and looks new then its time to check coil pack. The spark plug gets power to spark from coil pack.
3) The other thing to check in this case is the starter solenoid of the car. If the battery is charged and you start the car then it gives power to the starter to start the car. But if starter is faulty or not connected properly then car will not start.
4) The other thing to check in this case is fuel in the car. If there is fuel in the car then check the blockages in the fuel pump if the fuel pump looks proper then check the fuel filter above the fuel pump.
5) If all the above possibilities mentioned above checked out OK/perfect then it’s a electrical issue and the wiring's in the car needs to be checked. The car gets power from the battery to get started. so the wires from battery needs to be checked one by one.


Thanks. Keep updated for any more query. You can rate this solution and show your appreciation.

Sounds like your catalic converter is trying to stop up. When you drive it this heats up and causes your car to vapor lock and quit running you let cool down and it will start back and run for a while. You can take it to a muffler shop and they will check it for free. This could be any number of issues but this is where i would start.Best of luck to you, Thank's for using Fix Ya.

95 accord LX 2.2, starts and stop immediately I replaced the following to date: fuel pump fuel filter injectors new dist new ignition the problem not resolved, any other areas to look?


Look at the crank Position Sensor and the Cam Sensor as well as check the Timing belt for proper operation, if there is a slack of any type in the timing belt the tension device isn't working properly and is the cause of the problem.

Lx 92, tries to crank but will not fully start.


REPLACE THE BATTERY AND CLEAN AND FULLY TIGHTEN THE TERMINALS AND SEE IF THAT GIVES YOU MORE CRANKING POWER.

1994 honda accord will start runs awhile then cuts out .


Could be fuel delivery; fuel filter clogged, worn fuel pump.
Does it still have battery power when it dies, cranks but no start? How long does it take to start again? When does this occur, engine hot/cold? Does it happen all the time or sometimes? How long does it run until it cuts?

Honda Accord 1994 V4 LX: Starting problems in the morning


There could be a few things causing this. When the car finally starts, is there any smoke coming out the exhaust pipe? White smoke would mean your headgasket is leaking and is letting coolant into the engine, then it is burned along with the fuel. Does the car run hot? Meaning has it ever overheated? Back to the smoke, if its black, your oil is getting in and is burning.

Now, the reason why it would be hard for a car to start, could be, a leaking headgasket, flooding the car while the car is sitting.

And yes, the car would be able to crank, but just wont start, for a while...because it has to get rid of all that fluid that has leaked into the engine while sitting at night.

Another thing you could look at, is your fuel pump, is it supplying a sufficient amount of pressure? If it isnt, it will take a while for it to pressurize and deliver fuel into the engine. You can check the fuel pump yourself by renting a fuel pump pressure tool from stores like autozone, kragen and more.

Your gas cap on tightly?

Good luck with your problem.
