92 accord is throwing 1,2,7,and 8 trans codes. Acts up after car warms up, if shut car off most of time won't restart till car cools down


1 and 2 should be your oxygen sensors and 7 is throttle positioning sensor but it could be your coil pack

91 honda accord fan stars when you shut off engine


There are two fan switches on that car;
The main one turns the fan on and off when the ignition is on and the car is running.
The second switch powers the fan if the ignition is off and the engine temperature is too high, to cool the engine off if it was just shut down.
It sounds like your main fan switch has gone bad and needs to be replaced since it's not sending any signal to the fan, while the engine is running.

Engine fan runs after car shut down


The most likely cause of this problem is a part called a "Fan switch".

This link should be the location where yours is located. When it is working properly, it turns on the fans when the coolant reaches a certain tempeture.. In your case im assuming the switch is defective.. and stuck open.

1988 5 speed Honda Accord


Ensure your spark plugs,wires (ignition coil and spark) and your filters (air and fuel) are within 2 years of installation It's erratic at 800 rpm as the engine is cold and they like the 2200 range for 3 minutes before they kick down on their own. Press the pedal twice before inserting your key. The owners manual states depending on the outside temperature, the engine will require more priming. Update if possible.

98 honda shutts off and will not start until cooled off


you say the engine shuts down when it gets hot if it runs rough before doing so it could be the coolant temperature sensor allowing the engine to  overfuel  if the engine cuts out in a couple of seconds but sounds smooth it could be the fuel pump , if it cuts out instantly its electrical.

1988 Honda won't start


the problem is most likely the fuel pump has seized up, the reason for this is when u run out of gas the pump which uses the gas around it to cool gets very hot and the bearings seize up, get this kink of complaint all the time on fixya.

Losing power to fuel shutoff relay


The power for the shutoff relay actually comes from a secondary winding on the ignition coil itself. Why the enging would shut the fuel pump off is that as the engine ran for a while the coil gets warm and then breaks down or opens up the circuit for the fuel shutoff relay. Fixed by replacing $85.00 coil.
