Question about Honda Accord

1 Answer

My 92 Honda Accord is taking a really long time to start when cold for about two hours. I turn to start and it chugs for as long as I hold it. After stopping after a few seconds I try again, same deal. Third or fourth time after maybe giving it some gas, I finally get a start. It doesn't happen every time but enough to be concerned.

    New updates for this problem:



    1. It now won't stay running.



    2. When I turn the key to run (not start) it doesn't blow air as it normally should.



    3. When I turn it to start it does in fact start but when i let go of the key it dies again.



    4. If I hold it halfway in between start and run after it has started it will stay running until I completely release it to run.



    I think it may be a problem with the ignition, 18 years of starting it may have worn out a spring or something. But what do I know.

Hi, in your car, where your air filter is, there is a door that is suppose to shut when your car is cold. Check the sensor on top of the air filter canister by placing a bag of ice on it and look to see if the door in the intake part closes, with the engine running. Look at rubber hoses to see if any of the vaculum lines are leaking. Otherwise check out your fuel, timing and spark.

Why is my Accord chugging when I accelerate and the check engine light coming on ?


The fuel filter is probably full of metal too. (fuel starvation) replace it.

My car is a 92 honda accord. it starts up when it wants too.


I had the EXACT same problem with my 92 accord about 5 or 6 years ago. I took it to a bunch of different mechanics who couldn't figure it out, so I finally took it to a Honda dealership and they knew exactly what was wrong (apparently it was fairly common in 92 Accords). It had to do with the electrical system, but I don't remember the exact problem as it was some time ago. I would take it to a good Honda dealership and they should be able to take care of it. And FYI, back then it cost about $150-$200 to fix...

My 92 honda accord will not start. It turns over,


Hi I would check to make sure it is firing good and getting gas . If it is getting gas and the timing is good but it is not firing I would check the ignition module out . It will cause this.
