1988 Honda Accord Firing Problem

My 1988 Accord (2-door) gets battery power to start, but the engine doesn't fire up very well. If I stop the car and try to start again soon after, it sometimes doesn't fire up at all.

Is this a spark plug and/or carb problem? What is the cheapest way to solve it?

Hello with cars theres never a cheap way best thing you can do is to pull a couple of plugs first see how the gap area looks clean lightly dicolored no oil deposits second unscrew distributor cap flip up look inside the towers inside are they relatively clean or are they heavly deposited with flakey matariel and the rotor tip at the top of your dist if these things are present replace also fuel filter if carberated were the line hooks up some have a nut shaped housing that unscrews from the carb were there is a second fuel filter this is the route to go first carbs can run in the 400-500 range for these cars goodluck

I have a 1996 honda accord lx and the car dont start I tryed the jump starting it and nothing I think its the firing


Im not clear on the stauts of the vehicle. Is it completley dead as if the battery does not work? Can you charge the battery or check to see if the battery is dead. If you have power going and the engine cranks but does not turn over it could be many things. It could simply be a fuse. Check your owners manual for location of your fuse box. Check all the fuses that goes to the starter, engine , fuel pump, anything that may correspond with electricity or starting the engine etc. Did the run , then stop working or did it do soemthing in between? I need a little more info.
