Question about 1998 Honda Accord

2 Answers

My car has trouble starting & staying started. Sometimes it does start & runs fine for a few seconds- a few minutes, Then it just suddenly cuts off. engine sounds very smooth when it is running. No knocks, doesnt sputter any. I have replaced air filter, oil, pcv valve, & the battery is good with a fresh charge. I didn't drive the car for a few months so I added new gas with fuel system treatment as well. What could be my problem?

You didn't say you changed the fuel filter, which is the NUMBER ONE cause of cold start and idle problems

This might well be the air flow valve it is located in the intake duct work. this works to control the air flow to your motor to optimize volumetric efficiency. when these stick its chiking out the motor this is a good place to start

My 2001 Monte Carlo ss won't stay running


I would need more information to give you a good answer. I need to know how long will it stay running a few seconds an hour what is it. I had a 2000 blazer that would start fine everyday and i would 10 minutes and it died sometimes i drove an hour and it died. I parked it and everytime i started it would run about 10-15 minutes and die. after it would die i would check fuel pressure which was good and spark. Well turns out there's no spark so i changed coil ,plugs, wires, rotor. I finally changed the crankshaft positioning sensor and that tuned out to be the problem so good luck.

Check the ECU engine temperature sensor. If it thinks the engine is hot, it will struggle to run when cold.

Truck will be running fine, then all of a sudden it will completely shut off. After we wait a few minutes and pump the clutch and make sure it is all the way to the floor it will start, sometimes. S


You need the engine computer scanned for fault codes, i thank you have an ignition control problem like a module or distributor pickup coil issue. These parts whenthey fail should leave fault cdes so get them read.
Next, the check engine light will pause shortly followed by the second digit of the trouble code. For example if the check engine light blinks once and pauses followed by six blinks the trouble code number would be 16. If no code is present the check engine light will stay one constantly. To restart code gathering turn the ignition key to the "off" position, wait three minutes and turn the ignition key back "on" again without starting the engine. Remove the jumper wire once code gathering is complete. To clear code after the repairs have been made remove the negative battery cable for one minute and reconnect.

Jeeps runs for 2 minutes then shuts down


Hello Marc Miller,

BAFFLED:
I am a bit confused by your remark
"at night after 8pm" but I think I understand.
I have personal experience that FULL-MOON affects
PEOPLE... but the CARS/TRUCKS... Not so much.

My guess is a READ-OUT of your DIAGNOSTIC
TROUBLE CODES
(DTC) would (in the hands of
an accomplished mechanic is going to point out
your issue(s).

Some muffler shops and parts houses provide
these services for FREE...
(just know your options/prices before you go
(see below)).

Other than I personally believe you are
headed HOME (family, hearth & heart) you
probably suffer the torment all day long...
but it really stings when you want to be home...
I doubt any OTHER relevance to "8pm"...
ESPECIALLY since about 70% of this planets'
people just set our clocks forward AN HOUR
only a few weeks ago...

Another thing that has baffles... is your muffler.
Although the exterior MAY look intact...
195,000 miles is not a bad ... I have experienced
your trouble...

When a car runs "sometimes" that eliminates a
TON of considerations... (things that are OK).

Once the code are read... the FIRST MISTAKE
EVERYBODY makes is to change out perfectly
good OXYGEN SENSORS...

They are only upset because your
catalytic converter AND/OR muffler
are LIKELY keeping your EXHAUST from
getting out...

Just a thought...
