Car shuts off while drivng

I have a 93 honda accord w/171,500 miles. Recently I have had a problem with the car just shutting off. Each time, I was driving down the highway. I would coast over to the shoulder, put the car in park, wait about 30 seconds and then the car starts right up. Where should I look for this problem?

Could be the torque converter, could also be the ignition switch. You might take it to autozone and have them read any codes being stored by the computer. Might give you a better idea what it is. They do it for free.

Sounds like your ignition coil is failing. Eventually it wont start at all Common problem

My 98 accord has 178,00 miles on it. Recently, the car will shut off while driving but I am able to restart it right away. This will happen two or three times in a day then not at all for months. Doesnt...


You could have multiple issues.
It's possible the coolant temp sensor is bad. Resulting in the overheating/car turning off. Cheap part, relativly simple installation. Just do it.
No air comming from the vents could be a bad blower motor resistor.
Accords also had an issue with the ignition tumblers failing resulting in the car shutting off then restarting immediatley. Check for dealer warranty if temp sensor doesn't fix it.

Car feels like it wants to shut off


I am fairly certain it is the idle air control valve, you did not mention your mileage but idle air control valves typically wear out at about 100,000 miles to 150,000 miles.
