Question about 1998 Honda Accord

1 Answer

My 98 accord has 178,00 miles on it. Recently, the car will shut off while driving but I am able to restart it right away. This will happen two or three times in a day then not at all for months. Doesnt seem to relate to speed. Sometimes no air blows out of heater/ac inside car, then all of a sudden it starts back up. My temp gauge also is acting strange, it acts normally then all of a sudden the temp will rise suddenly. Turning on heater doesnt affectit. Driving at higher speeds sometimes lowers it. Fan is working when car is idling. The timing belt was recently replaced as well as water pump and radiator hoses & system flush. It hasnt gotten into red yet. I am just wondering if these issues are related? Is there a way to tell if a sensor for temp gauge is bad versus if the car is actually overheating?

You could have multiple issues.
It's possible the coolant temp sensor is bad. Resulting in the overheating/car turning off. Cheap part, relativly simple installation. Just do it.
No air comming from the vents could be a bad blower motor resistor.
Accords also had an issue with the ignition tumblers failing resulting in the car shutting off then restarting immediatley. Check for dealer warranty if temp sensor doesn't fix it.

I have one Honda Accord 1999. One time, when I was driving, brake and steering wheel locked; oil light, battery light and brake light were on. What's happened to my car?


I have '99 accord LX 4cyl sedan and the ignition switch is a problem for these cars. I replaced my ignition 2 or 3 years ago because it would randomly shut off and sometimes not start back up right away. It only got worse until I fixed it, it would die on the highway or freeway sometimes. Haven't had that problem since. i think it cost like $240 or so. Also if you have an automatic, be careful, they are notoriously bad for going out after 100k miles. mine did and its an expensive fix. good luck.

Oil pressure loss at times while driving down the highway . the oil pressure gauge goes from 40 pounds to 0 pounds. you shut it off right away then restart it and oil pressure comes right and holds 40...


Mate .2 things.The oil pressure sending unit is playing up or its not.The other is how long since an oil /filter change.If you know the oil is ok ,get the sender unit fixed.Oil is a lot cheaper than metal if things are not right.If it happens all of a sudden,the sender unit may be at fault.Hope this helps

1998 3.0 Acura CL Shut off electronically


There is a known issue with the ignition switch on the 98 Acura CL 3.0. The ignition was recalled by the manufacturer. This happened to my 98 CL as well. Since it was a recall, Acura may replace the ignition switch for you at no cost, not sure though as they announced the recall in 2003 I believe.

I have honda accord 1999 88K mile. recently while driving my engine stopped, I tried to turn it on several times and succeeded but after 20, 30 sec it stopped again. to get back home I had to repeat it...


replace the ignition module they are really the only part that causes this, as far as the lights go this happens when the engine shuts off? or do you mean no waring lights go on?.

Car stalls when driving and doesn't restart right away


Fuel filter changed recently? If it just started this & you filled up somewhere you don't normally fill up, then I'd try some "heet" additive or similar to remove moisture from gas tank, just in case that's the problem.$5.00 test.

Car shuts off while drivng


Could be the torque converter, could also be the ignition switch. You might take it to autozone and have them read any codes being stored by the computer. Might give you a better idea what it is. They do it for free.
