Question about 1999 Honda Accord

1 Answer

My car randomly stalls while I am driving. I have went about a week without it acting up but eventually the problem occurs again. When this happens the lights on my dash illuminates and the vehicle looses power. When i try to start the vehicle back up, the car doesn't turn over for at least 5 tries, and does not give me the impression that it has a loss a power anywhere. Everyday, my initial starting of the vehicle is no problem. There has been many occasions where, when at a stand still, The car idles as though someone is pressing the accelerator and then letting up, but stops when the engine warms up. Also, my "maintenance required" light does flash when i first start the car, but the light does not stay on.

Probably fuel pump issue. if it has 100k or more miles, replace it. test for this would be to check fuel pressure while it is running and acting up, you'll see a marked difference in pressure at times it acts up.

SOURCE: Maintenance Required Light flashes 5 times

I have the same problem and I read in the user manual that it flashes as a reminder to get oil changed. Depending on how many miles between changes it flashes different amount of times. Manual tells how to reset the gauge. Might be more than that but check your book first.

SOURCE: Engine won't start. Dash lights flash rapidly when key turned.

the battery says 12 volts but may be dropping to 4 or 5 under a load...i would suggest jumpstarting the car and see what happens.the battery should read in the high 12 volts and not less than 9.5 under cranking. the dash lights go out on your car when starting,and the alarm will go off ,and disable the ignition if the voltage is too low in cranking the car because the computer will shut it down and activate the anti theft.....check your battery posts are tight. best of luck

SOURCE: 2005 honda accord, rough idle and malfunction

I would take it to a local Auto Zone, or Advance Auto, they can run it through the diagnostic computer and see what codes are tripping, most likely it's going to be for a cylinder mis-fire, i would try making sure all the plugs are good, and check and see if all the plug wires are secured tightly.

Start with the simple and replace the fuel filter. The fuel filter should be replaced every 15,000 miles or once a year to ensure the fuel system is running 100%. Auto Zone will have the fuel filter and can give you the step by step instructions to getting the job done with common tools. If it's the fuel pump failure, you have not gotten the car restarted. Good luck and keep me posted, be glad to know you got your car running 100% again soon and please rate.

Nissan Sentra random stalls and wont start hot


Check out the catalytic converter, might be plugged up. I have seen some cars that will run fine, and like someone threw a switch the car acted like yours, no power, would not rev and died. Later when cold they would be OK for a while then just get worse and worse.

Check the EGR valve. Sounds like the three stage EGR valve is acting up. Look for any discoloration around the valve ports. This valve is located on the intake manifold near the throttle body.
