Question about 1992 Honda Accord

2 Answers

Cuts off at red light

In 2007, my car would not crank consistently in the heat. We replaced the coils and the distributor. Now here we are a year later and my husband was driving home but had to keep giving it gas at red lights to keep it running. It stalled and would not crank. A mechanic told us it was the distributor, plugs and wires. The cost $700. We towed it home. A friend of ours who is a mechanic thinks it may be the fuel pump or the fuel pump relay. We do not have a manual and need to know if this is 1) the possible problem and 2) where is the relay located as it is not labeled under the hood.

Is it fuel injected or carbed? It might be something as simple as idle setting. Any problem with a distributor, plugs or wires causes the engine to run unevenly and rough - is it doing that?

You MUST check the fuel pressure when the problem is present, it may be the problem, the fuel pump is in the fuel tank, and is very time consuming to replace, do the fuel pressure test first to verify the problem is or isn't the pump.

99 Dodge Durango v8 5.2 L crank no start changed Distributor cap & rooter, spark plugs, and ignition coil and still won't start


It still sounds to me like you are not getting spark. Re check the spark plugs that they are properly tightened and that the plug wires are connected. I am thinking this is from the distributor cap to the spark plug where the problem is.

Car will crank there is no spark have replaced coil and condenser


Test the ignition system output, ignition systems can vary in configuration but operate on the same principal. Ignition systems can consist of a coil, pick up coil, crank angle sensor, cam angle sensor, spark plugs, spark plug wires, distributor cap, ignition rotor and a distributor and any variations of these components. An ignition coil is a voltage stepper coil that transforms a low voltage (12 volts) signal into tens of thousands of volts needed to jump the gap of the spark plug.

This coil is activated by an ignition module triggered by using the camshaft/crankshaft angle sensor; timing is adjusted by the PCM (computer).This primary electrical signal is generated by the PCM which calculates spark timing by using a variety of sensors including coolant temperature, mass air flow, and oxygen sensors. Go to 2carpros.com for a video on how to check this using a 12v light tool. On the engine repair section search, type, "engine cranks but will not start." If my answer helpe you, please leve good feedback. thanks

Motor will turn over but no fire to the sparkplugs. Changed the distributor cap and still no fire


to be more precise,would really need to know the model of engine;4G64,6A11,6A12 etc.should be on vehicle ID badge.the 4 denotes a 4 cylinder,6 is V6,the earlier models have an external coil,or coil pack,the later models have the coil either inside the distributor under the cap.if external coil,remove the coil HT lead that runs to the cap from the cap,place near an area that is earthed and crank engine,should see a spark jump to the metal object.
Both early and later models run modules inside distributors.these often fail.Either can replace them or just get a second hand dizzy complete
Also crank engine with cap off and ensure that rotor is turning.I assume that this one fits into the end of cam at one end of the head,so this should not be a problem,but still check.the more that we find that is ok,the closer we get to what isnt.
hope this helps or get back with some more info and will endeavour to pinpoint problem.

My 1988 Oldmobile Toranado ran 3 1/2 years ago when I moved from house to another. My car would not crank after that. We have tried the battery that isn't problem. My husband sprayed something to see if it...


since it did not fire when your husband sprayed starting fluid into the intake, then it is not getting spark, may be a coil, distributor, senor, plug/wires. Hope this helped Tim

My 1994 E250 just stops with no warning


it sounds like the pick up coil in the distributor is heating up and shutting down you have to pull the distributer and take it apart to replace it

92 honda accord intermittent crank but no start/ tranny issues


I know that early 90's Honda's had problems and in fact a recall on the distributor. Might want to replace the distributor. Inside of the distributor is a part called the igniter which is the ignition module and that is what normally goes out. I cannot remember if you have to replace the whole distributor to get the igniter or if you can just replace the igniter itself. Has been a few years since I have worked on one. hope this helps but if not please contact me. I'm not sure about the drive light flashing thing though, new one on me.
