Sounds like you got some bad gas. I would either try an additive to remove water and some octane boost. If that doesn't work you will need to drain the tank. This has been a real problem with the price of gas going up. Some stations in my area have been shut down for putting water in the gas. If it was running fine before you got gas, then more than likely this is your problem.

Rtae this as a Fixya if this solves your problem. Ask more questions if you need to.

Why does my 93 Honda Accord run fine and then dies going down the road and will start again and die again?


There is a black fuel relay way up under the top left driver side dash that breaks its main wire solder connections on the circuit board under over-heat conditions. Resolder that relay. Starting fluid will show that you have lost fuel delivery under no start conditions. You can use the breather hose from the valve cover for this test.

There is a cable going to the fuel door. You'll have to pull the carpet back along side of the fill cap. Tie a string to the cable long enough so that when you pull it out, you can attach the new one to it and pull it through! It probably run down the rocker panel or inside side panel! May require some investigating first...

the heat sensor would have the engine believe it was cold so increase the fuel to the engine(like having the choke out),so sounds reasonable.....

Faulty Petrol Gauge


Hi there,
It could be 2 things:
1. the fule sender unit is faulty
2. one of the baffles inside the tank has come loose and is interfering with the float.
Either case you'll have to pull the float out to have a look. If you are doing it yourself, make sure youtake great care as you'll be dealing with fuel and this is a high risk work.
cheers.
