Please check the output of the ignition coil when it is hot and not starting. I feel that is where the problem lies.

if the carb was put on the car with that gasket sealer stuff you buy in a tube it will get hot and drip down into the carb. I had a car acted the same way and that was the problem.

My 1990 honda accord has a problem with the idling, it idles up n down when its cold or hot.i cant figure out what the problem is can u help me thanks

What usually is the culprit with these models is the Idle Air Control valve. (IAC) Its located around the intake and throttle body ..Often these get clogged up.. I have removed and cleaned many and replaced a few as well...Also It can be your fast idle valve too depending what else its doing like idle fluctuation at stops in neutral , cold , or hotdr_greg.jpg and what not ..A little more info may help but this is where in my opinion is the best bet to start..Common on the 90-93 accords...Here is a pic so you can see what Im talking about...The IAC is circled red and Fast Idle valve in yellow ...good luck .. and Hope this helps a little. Let me know what happens when or if you fix it..Thanks :)

1990 honda accord ex does not start when hot?

Sounds like the pgmfi relay is going out. This is a common problem with these cars. They get hot and dont want to work, they cool off and everything is ok.

1990 honda accord temp gauge above hot limit.

Hi there,

Firstly - DO NOT run engine, when guage reads hot, as this will cause costly damage to head gasket & alloy engine head.

The fact that guage takes 1min to read HOT, would confirm the guage IS working properly.

So, other components which are likely to cause hot readings (in this order) are:

- lack of coolant (or leakage somewhere): is there sufficient green coolant at the correct level? Top up mixture to correct level. Repair any leaks.

- collapsed radiator hose: when engine is cold, start engine, then quickly watch both upper & lower radiator hoses to see if either begins to flex inwards (collapse). Replace if either hose is collapsed.

- bad/incorrect thermostat rating : when replacing thermostats, you must ensure it is of the SAME temp rating (they all differ).

- Incorrect Temp sensor rating: the ratings of this sensor must be within manufacturer's spec's.

- bad waterpump: the engine relies on the waterpump to distribute the coolant throughout the entire system. If waterpump is faulty, coolant will not flow quick enough, causing overheating.

If you still believe all of the above components are OK, then have your cooling system "pressure tested". This test should be done, before looking further at other electrical components.
