Question about 1995 Honda Accord

1 Answer

1995 Honda Accord cranks but won't start unless I step on the gas pedal repeatedly. There are times though that it will start fine with no problems, such as, when the car is warmed up. Can you please tell me what I need to do to fix this problem.

You may want to check the map sensor. Honda accord uses map sensors. To check it, turn the car to on position and apply vacuum. The voltage in one of the three pins should change as vacuum is applied. Note: do not apply too much vacuum because it can be damaged that way. Out of the three pins there is 1. the power source (usually 5 volts) this do not change. 2. Ground (this is usually a floating ground so do not ground it to any metal parts of the body or you can end up with a computer damage. 3. Is the output signal (this is the signal that should change in respect to ground). Without vacuum applied it is usually around 2 volts, and as vacuum is applied it goes down. A word of caution. Use digital multimeter to do testing and never jump anything or short any wire in anyway so be careful.

How to bleed clutch master cylinder on a 1995

It takes 2 people. Open the bleeder on the slave cylinder, hold your finger over it while the pedal is pumped, releasing the pressure when the pedal is down.. Once it starts pushing fluid thru, close the bleeder, pump 3 times, open bleeder with pedal down. Repeat till clutch feels good. If you are replacing the master cylinder, bench bleed it 1st. Be patient, this all takes awhile.

I have a 1995 Honda Accord that was running fine...until my mother put a small amount (apx a gallon) of gas from an old gas can that has sat around for probably a year. My car starts, but practically every...

Try some heet or iso dryer. They reduce water from gasoline. That is most likely what was in the gas can. Gas cans especially ones with just a small amount in them build up condensation inside.get this stuff and a can of sea foam dump them in your gas tank. Two bottles of the dryer and one can sea foam fill tank all the way full and run it out. Good luck.

Why dosent my car advance when i step on the gas pedal

From what you say Daniel, your kickdown cable need's to be adjusted, here's how :

Down at the pressure lever on the front of the trans, loosen off the cable retaining nuts so there is a little slack in the cable.
then start taking the slack out of the cable a little bit at a time;
Rest a long screwdriver on the end of the pressure lever, holding the screwdriver with one hand start opening the throttle with your other hand.

Just at the point the idle RPM barely rises, the pressure lever should just barely move.

Driving test; Going along a level road at 25 mph light throttle, floor the gas pedal.
The trans should downshift to first gear.

repeat the same drive at 28 mph, floor the gas pedal, the trans only downshifts to second gear.

Hi. Sounds like the gas filter. If this happened in the summer it would be pressure lock in the gas tank.

My 1995 honda accord cranks but won't start sometimes and others starts right up. what could this be? I've been told there is no pulse to injectors?

Does it seem to be tempreture related. i had a cutomers vehicle for almost 2 weeks and it started everytime. The thing was it was inside the garage. Finally one day I had pulled it out into the sun and when i went to put it back in, at that point it didn't start. It was a Honda but don't remember the year but it was around a 1995 like yours. It eneded up being the PGMFI relay wich would cause the exact sysmtoms that you are talking about. I have found out since then that this is a common problem. Give that a shot. I hope this helps and good luck.
