1986 Honda Accord Dx keeps dying out.

My car keeps dying out, when, I come to a stop. I gave the car a complete tune up. I gapped the plugs at O.44. Checked all the hoses. Before tune up, it would die before, i came to a complete stop. But after tune up, it runs better, but dies, shortly after stop. I installed a new distributor and rotor, the whole tuneup. Could someone please, give me any idea's. Thank you.

Have you checked you plug wires?? I would also check your idle speed that can cause the car to die. If it is carb. then it may need to get a choke replaced.

Start with a routine tune-up. New air filter, new spark plugs, distributor cap and rotor button. Make sure the sparkplugs are gapped correctly before installing. Plug wires are less likely to go bad, so I would hold off on that.

91 Accord DX. Car will fire up when I crank the ignition, wants to run, but dies immediatly. Fuel pump has pressure, already did a tune up, has a new starter, what else could it be? It will start every...


I would suggest looking at the little things. Check your fuel filter, and clean your spark plugs. No Guarantee that this will work, but this is much cheaper than replacing something expensive that you don't need.

Spark Plug Gap


For the six cyclinder is .044 and for the four cyclinder its the same . Some spark plugs maybe already pregap. Also before you gap the plugs, check under the hood and look at the vacuum diagram sticker or any other sticker under the hood. They somtimes display what gap is neccessay for the car. If you do find the info. and is different for what i gave you. Use the sticker info. Good Luck.

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.
