    It started/ran just fine before, but after it was parked a few days, it just refused to start. Does a distributor go bad that fast???

If your car runs for a few and then refuses to restart, for a while, after shutting it off, then your main relay is bad. If it just won't start period, your distributor is bad. Have them both checked out, depending on which no start symptom you're having.

    I've seen Accords drive to somewhere, turn the car off, come back later and try to start the car and the distributor is dead. This is a common problem and weakness with the 90-93 Accords. Have it checked out.

Can I bypass the crank sensor on a 1997 Automatic Honda Accord?


They both have crank sensors. crank sensor is the same as RPM sensor. Both cars need rpm signal. You could compare the inputs and match differences...but BYPASSING or skipping isnt ever a good idea. The 97 if I recall required crank and tdc. the 93 simply had a distributor reluctor generating both,.
WHat I recommend is you dont mix and match engines that arent compatible or change the incompatible pieces. Life is much easier both at 1st start and in the future when it needs repair.
However, you can get the crank/rpm signal from the 93 distributor, move it to the same wires ast he 97 lists, and it MAY fire. Youll still have to deal with cam and TDC, and all sorts of other incompatioble parts.. the 93 5 speed ECM should still work fine, so its a 5 speed? the engine doesnt care. Was t just not cranking because of the clutch switch input you now didnt have? You could jumper those pins (blue n black?) and bypass that. At least then all your ECM inputs are correct and in the right pins. That seems alot easier than mixing and matching year parts.

Sluggish engine turnover can be the battery but won't be caused by gas. A problem related to gas would be more apparent after the engine is running.

1994 Honda Accord DX radiator is blowing out antifreeze and car won't start.


Pull the plugs out and then crank the engine over if water comes out of the plug holes you have a busted head gasket which would give you compression in the coolant system thusblowing out antifreeze as well as overheating.

I have a f20a motor in a 91 accord can I put a 2.2 motor without having any major problems


I would only do this with a 92-93 EX Accord motor and keep it OBD0. I did this with no CEL codes, works perfect.

Swap the following parts from your old 91 engine to the 92-93 EX motor:

Intake manifold
Engine Wiring Harness
Distributor
Exhaust manifold (header)
Air Conditioner bracket and Air Conditioner Compressor

Keep your current ECU in the car. Put your transmission on the motor before you drop it in.

If you go to the 94-97 / 2.2 you will run into some additional sensors, crank position sensor, etc... with that motor since it switches over to OBD2 in 1996.

Good luck...

My 93 accord was running just fine then the engine just stopped and now won't start....It died a couple of times but started right back up. What could it be?


Check if you have spark while cranking the engine. If not, it could be your distributor or main power relay that's bad. Either or both would cause your "It died a couple of times but started right back up " and now won't start problem.

93 Honda Accord EX, engine dies but will start after 15 minutes of cool down. has done this numerous times


Replace the main engine relay under the dash board, its to the left of column. A bit hard to get too, but its do-able. Part is like 60-100 bucks at your local parts store. This part is responsible for turning on the fuel pump at startup for all of 5-15 seconds, then it switches to the second half of the relay to keep the pump running normally the rest of the time. the relay goes bad in these cars and causes these intermittent problems. Possible crank sensor/distributor issue, but that relay would be a good place to start.
