Question about 1998 Honda Accord
Our car will die when I'm driving along at whatever speed... 30mph to 60mph, it doesn't really matter, it just dies.
All dash lights will light up, the car will beep telling me the engine has shut down. So I pull over, place the car in park (it's an automatic) and then turn the key to start... it starts! Sometimes it takes 3 or 4 times before it starts, but it always starts up.
One thing I notice before it dies on me is the car will "lurk", as if to change gears, and then the engine will fail; leaving me on the side of the road. It sounds like an electrical issue, but I'm not sure.
The first step I recomend for try to fix your car is:
Get the car Scanned for see if there any present CODE.
The code help to have IDEA where or what is the problem.
If you don't want to spend money,
Go to ADVANCE Autoparts, Auto zone autoparts and some of the NAPA's Autopart, they make Computer diagnostic with out charge for that is only a free service.
If they don't found any code. I RECOMEND
Replace the FUEL PUMP Realy. "(MAIN RELAY)."
Because is one of the 90% of the problem with shutdown or non starting conditions.
The relay is located under the left side of the dash. The relay
Is bigger than a regular relay. colour gray. You can get at any autoparts.
OK... I hope this help to start diagnostic your car.
Thank you for use fixya.
