First off, you need to go back to school and learn how to write sentences and use punctuation. Now for your questions, it all depends on what kind of condition the car is in and how much the seller wants for the car, as well as how much you are willing to pay for that car in whatever condition it's in. Overall, that series of Accords is pretty darn rock solid. However, you must also factor in the age and milage of the car and anticipate strange repairs that will come along because of that age. If you have the skills, willingness, tools, and/or ability to do some work on your own it might not be a bad choice. These are the big ticket items you need to have checked out:

1. Cylinder compression test - Will tell you the overall condition of the engine. Results must be between 135-170+ psi with no more than 28psi differance between any of the cylinders.
2. Suspension - Have it evaluated, or check yourself for fluid leaks on the shocks. Also, while test driving listen for any noise or knocking or if anything feels "loose". The ball joints could be bad, and a failure there could mean disaster for you. Make sure you find someone that knows how to check them...or just get them replaced if you decide to get the car.
3. Brakes - Make sure the breaks are good. Does the car shake when you brake? That could mean warped rotors, and that is a big job on those cars.
4. Exhaust - What is the condition? Midas will probably charge you $600 to replace the pipes if they go bad.

If everything clears in these areas and the car seems to have been well maintained, then $1500-$2500 would be a fair price. Higher price would only come with service records where you KNOW it was well taken care of...or some sort of warranty from the seller. Otherwise if some of those things don't check out and you still want the car, don't pay more than $700 for it. I love those Accords though, I have two of them right now!

My 1991 honda accord is a stick shift and when i'm driving sometimes it sounds like something is grinding and a repair tech at AAMCO told me i needed a new slave cylinder. does this sound correct

well i hope he is.. cause there are many thing that will cause that, for example the grinding noise from the transmission is a broken gear in the Gear box. (transmission).. The only way to be sure is to actually observe it our selves which we cant. In this case i would advise you trust the tech and if needed get a second opinion. However if you can answer these question we should be able to help.

is there any other sounds or vibrations while driving ??
where is the sound coming from ?? (what part of the car like left side front wheel)..

does the rims get hot ??
is there a clacking sound while turning left or right hard.
is the noise constant and increases with speed ? (if its this one chances are its a wheel bearing)

Change the battery cable

If you buy a Hayne's Repair Manual for your car, you'll have no problem making repairs such as this. It's hard to tell you specifically, because every car is different. The manuals are around 20-25 bucks and worth every cent. (You COULD also go to the parts store and just look through the book while shopping and see what you need to do.)

If it has an alarm on it, it can drain the batt. over the time it is sitting, However, going down overnight means it has another drain on it. Check these, radiator cooling fan continuosly running, light left on in cabin,trunk,or underhood. Other than these, it would take a DC Ampmeter placed over Batt. terminal to check for drain and move from Batt. source through wiring to locate drain or ground.

My 1991 Honda Accord is having trouble starting. The repair shop says I need a distributor and tune-up that will cost $800 and take a week to get parts. Does this sound reasonable? Jim B in Kenosha, WI

Timing belt tensioner and retourquing crank pulley bolt

the breaker bar method is ok to take the bolt off ,but it has to be torqued to the proper spec. if you get a haynes manual for 25 bucks or so,it will explain about the timing belt,and then you have the manual for doing other repairs.they are really worth the money.

Car wont start

I had a problem with a 1991 Honda Accord and the fix was a weird one. My car would run fine and start fine if it was cold outside. If I left my car in the sun and the interior got hot, my car wouldn't start.

(Since you drove to San Diego this may be the problem)

I found out that if I left my windows open and let the inside of the car cool down, it would start. Strange.....

Apparently, there is a main relay box under the steering wheel that triggers the starter motor and fuel injection. In the Honda's made around 1991, the contacts in that box would expand and would not let the electricity flow.

I guess you can repair the relay box, but replacing it might be a better bet ($50). I took my car to three different mechanics before any of them had heard of this problem.

The fix was simple, but the problem was hard to diagnose.

Dash light DRL stays on

Bad solders in DRL relay located left side of steering column below change drawer behind dash. It will be indicated with a stamp DAYTIME RUNNING LIGHT RELAY. Remove it and redo the solders to the relay contacts in the unit. This will fix the DRL light in dash, return the DRL system to functioning and will also fix headlight not working problem.
