Question about 2004 Honda Accord

1 Answer

I have just bought a Honda Accord 22i - CTDI and am experiencing starting problems. You have to keep your ignition turning for quite sometime before it kicks in but runs like a dream when driving? Have taken it to Honda main dealer who acknowledges the problem but cannot find the fault!! very frustrating because they tell me to let the fault get worse as they believe it may be the ECU component and suggest I pay them £800 but warn they cannot gaurantee that will cure the Fault? The main problem with leaving it to get worse is that when the engine fails to start it's so violent that I had to £140 for a new rear engine mounting which must surely be doing other components damage? Hope you can help?

If the fault is not showing up on the diagnostic then try redexe at a bottle to a tankfull,may just be injectors gunged up....generally speaking it will take two turns of the engine to fire as it fires on compression(the first turn moves the air the second compresses the full charge of air/fuel).

Hi!i got honda accord i-ctdi 56 reg.there is very loud whistling turbo noise when the engine is cold ,it gets bit quieter when engine warm up. i just bought this car and dont know whether this is normal...


"I have the same problem. Some people say hat the turbine is done. But the problem is that the turbine works normal, no excess smoking, no power loss. So that is why I went dipper into the problem. It turns out it could be the intake header gasket.
I will take it to a local mechanic and let him take a look at it.

91 Accord Car will initially start then when driving it will die sometimes starts right away sometimes 10 or 20 minutes later but has gotten more frequent about dying and taking longer to start


I have a 1991 honda accord dx that had the same problem. while driving it would just completely shut down. after about 5 minutes it start and run for a while then shut down again getting more frequently. There was a recall on the ignition control module (ignitor) which is in the distributor. call your local honda dealer with your vin # and will tell you if yours was replaced. If not I bought one from parts store for $60 or you could take a chance and buy one from a junk yard. I bought the whole distributor for $20 as a back up.
