You should pull your choke knob before starting in the morning.Let choke on for 30 seconds and very slowly push the knob back in place.Give a good acceleration before driving off.It should run fine.

When was last tune up? Plugs, wires, all fluids & filters? Especially fuel filter? I'd start there and run a good fuel system cleaner (Stp. Gumout, etc..) through it and avoid cut-rate fuel

I have a 2006 Honda Accord....its been very cold outside and every morning i turn on the car and i hear a noise..not sure if its coming from the engine...but it goes away after I start driving and the...


When is really cold, and vehicles with non electrical power steering start for the first time after a good period of inactivity the power steering pump tents to wine, that is normal, some other cars or almost all the cars when they pass 100.000 miles develop a little metallic noise that goes away when the oil pump distributes and lubricates all moving parts inside the engine when the car starts first thing in the morning in a really cold morning.

03 Honda Accord EX will occasionally flood on a cold morning; ~17 F etc. After it has warmed up and all other times it starts OK. This does not happen often but I am concerned that it will leave my wife...


When it's very cold and the car will start right away, the most common thing that happens is the engine will flood. When you turn the key to start, the gas is sprayed into the engine. It does not know that the car didn't start and will continue to spray gas as long as the key it turned to start. That is why you should not crank for longer than 20-30 seconds at a time.
Then if it will not start, hold your gas pedal all the way to the floor, and the gas spray is stopped, so that the extra gas can be expelled. You can now try to start agian normally.

MY HONDA ACCORD HAS PROBLEM AT COLD START


The Part that is defective is one of 2. First is the Coolant Temp Sensor (Not knowing how much Fuel to give to the Engine) or the IAC (Idle Air Control Valve)... These are the 2 things that effect FUEL getting to the Cylinders to fire. Of course there are other things it could be (Low Fuel Pressure) caused by a air leak in the system or a few others but the first 2 is where I would have started...

1989 honda accord headlight fuse blows as soon as replaced


you more than likely have a shorted wire in the headlight harness... you will have to check the wiring from the headlight bulbs to see if it has been pinched up against a sharp metal edge causing a grounded wire, or maybe the harness was crushed by an improper headlight installation.

Honda Accord 1991 idles high then low


)The fact that thge engine idle fluctuates when it is cold indicates that the Fast Idle THermo Valve is out of adjustment.
This valve is located ot the front of the intake manifold on the driver's side just below the accelerator cable. To adjust it, wait until the engine is cold (best to do it first thing in the morning).
Remove the two screws holding the cover on and start the engine. There is a brass needle sticking up through a plastic ring that has two slots in it. With the engine idle fluctuating, use a thin flat blade screwdriver to SLOWLY turn the ring CLOCKWISE
until the idle stabilizes. Once done. put the cover back on withg the two screws and you should be done.
