Bad ignition coil. 100% Once the weather gets nice and hot a little resistor fails in the coil causing 2 problems. the transmission may start acting funny when the torque converter trys to lock. second the tach needle will start to bounce. you can get a new oem coil from honda for around 90 bucks.

You probably have a faulty sensor at the transmission.

Go to your local parts store, and they can give you the part and how to install it. It's pretty easy.

When the gas is applied the car will stall and the rpm gauge will go up and down


Check the air inlet tube for cracks. Duct tape will work in a pinch.

When im taking of my car jerks and like it dont wanna go then floor it then it starts going


Check for any arching in the distributor cap, the coil inside are very common to fail or brake down under load. Also check your fuel pressure by fitting a fuel gauge to vehicle and take it for a drive observing the readings and compairing it to manufactures specifications. Cheers.

You need a new transmission computer. They are a very common failure part, google: "honda tcm". It is located under the front passenger's floor board. Buy a new one off ebay or a rebuilder, not used, they are all bad.

1990 honda accord temp gauge above hot limit.


Hi there,

Firstly - DO NOT run engine, when guage reads hot, as this will cause costly damage to head gasket & alloy engine head.

The fact that guage takes 1min to read HOT, would confirm the guage IS working properly.

So, other components which are likely to cause hot readings (in this order) are:

- lack of coolant (or leakage somewhere): is there sufficient green coolant at the correct level? Top up mixture to correct level. Repair any leaks.

- collapsed radiator hose: when engine is cold, start engine, then quickly watch both upper & lower radiator hoses to see if either begins to flex inwards (collapse). Replace if either hose is collapsed.

- bad/incorrect thermostat rating : when replacing thermostats, you must ensure it is of the SAME temp rating (they all differ).

- Incorrect Temp sensor rating: the ratings of this sensor must be within manufacturer's spec's.

- bad waterpump: the engine relies on the waterpump to distribute the coolant throughout the entire system. If waterpump is faulty, coolant will not flow quick enough, causing overheating.

If you still believe all of the above components are OK, then have your cooling system "pressure tested". This test should be done, before looking further at other electrical components.

Cheers,

"if this has helped you in any way, please rate this solution"
