1996 Honda Accord Running lean after changing tune up and new oxygen sensors.


My first thought was fuel pressure. Low fuel pressure would cause the engine to go lean but not set a code for the actual problem.
Is it possible the fuel filter is clogged ? Have you checked fuel pressure?

My 1996 honda accord check engine light came on and it started to idle like the spark plugs have went bad. can you give me an idea of what the problem might be?


Not yet. The check engine light coming on is letting you know that the self diagnostic function of the engine computer has detected a problem and set a trouble code. That code can be read by a code reader. Most major auto parts stores have these code readers and will read your code for free. The code number can tell you/us where to start looking for the problem.

I have a 1996 Honda accord lx 5 speed. When I let it idle it drops below 500 rpm and almost stalls out. What would this be?


  • Dirty air filter or bird nest in the air intake
  • Broken vacuum hose or fitting
  • Worn plugs or bad wires (will run rough; exhaust may smell dirty or have raw gas odor).
  • Clogged fuel injector or fuel filter; failing fuel pump (will also run poorly at high power demand)
  • Bad throttle position sensor or dirty throttle body - inspect any idle air bypass channels.
  • Bad or misadjusted idle air solenoid (I'm not sure if it's used on this model; you'll have to check to see what engine you have.)

These are the first places to look. If the Check Engine light is on, getting a diagnostic readout may save some time in your search for the problem.

1996 Honda Accord Rough Idle Even After tune up performed Changed spark plugs, distributor cap and rotor wheel along with all spark plug wires, changed fuel filter, air filter, spent $150 on fuel injector...


Perform a valve clearance inspection and adjust if necessary. Tight or sticking valves will cause a misfire or rough running concern. Note: Perform valve adjustment when the engine is stone cold. 4cyl: INT 0.26mm EXH: 0.30mm (V6 engine are hydraulic and no adjust necessary.) Also check for a sticking or stuck open EGR valve. For diagnostic purposes only: Remove the EGR valve. Place a business card over the EGR passage and bolt the EGR valve back on. This plugs the EGR ports and if the misfire goes away the EGR valve is partially stuck open and is defective.
Check for low fuel pressure. Check for low compression. Check cam timing. Check for a weak ignition coil. Also don't over look the possibility of worn or broken engine mounts which cause excessive engine movement and engine vibration. -hope this helps

Check engine light on...


Karen,

This sounds to me like it may be the Mass Air Flow Sensor is bad. There really is no actual way to test this sensor. I would recommend either another scan from a different parts store or possibly replacing the Mass Air Flow Sensor. Hope this helps.

Check engine light code 0441


You may not have a leak, the problem may be with the sensor on the fuel tank that tells the Power Train Control module if the system holds vacuum, like all sensors these will and do fail on occassion, if you ran a leak down test and the system held vacuum within the manufacturers specs then the sensor may very well be the problem that is turning on the check engine light.
