Question about 1997 Honda Accord

1 Answer

Honda 97 accord

The problem is that it starts after 3rd or 4th try but it will go and then all of a sudden it just shuts off and I have to wait again to start it again. I got caught in traffic the other day in the middle of rush hour. Could it be the fuel filter or fuel pump?? I changed out the spark plugs and added oil, starting with the easiest fix and the problem did not change ???????? any answers?

    My 97 Honda Accord LX (automatic) has been stalling out randomly.
    Seems like more often in hot weather.It loses all power and I have to wait a minute for it to start back up. Now it's not starting at all. The smell of fuel is prominent. Could this be a fuel pump or filter issue?

Im not sure though, but try to check your compression rate. there might be a leak in your cylinder or valves that makes a bad air-gas mix. it's a long shot but it's worth a try.

I have a 1987 Accord LX 4 dr. When driving at approximately between 55 to 60 mph the transmission shifts back and forth between 3rd and 4th gear with the slightest acceleration. It seems to me it's doing...


Depends on the throttle position, there is a adjustment for that transmission. I would suggest someone who has Honda experience, like a dealer.

Srs light.d4 light.not shifting to 3rd or 4th.wont always start


ok first the srs light is on when there is a malfunctioning with the airbag system, need to get that check out, and about the transmission you should check the fluid to see if it is on level of if it needs a flush.
Here is how to do that..
1- open hood 2- by the driver's side on the engine there is a dip stick that says transmission fluid 3- check if it is in right level
if it is not recomend a transmission fluid flush and check transmission
thank you good luck

My s4 light on my 1989 honda integra is flashing and car only will start when light stops flashing whitch happens when ever it likes 2


I found this one the www.hondacarforum.com
http://www.hondacarforum.com/honda-technical/28562-i-have-1989-honda-integra-can-any-one-tell-me-what-s4-gear-stick.html

You have a couple of choices on this Honda transmission... D and S modes. Consider the D as the normal Drive mode and the S for Sport mode. The difference between the two is that in "D", the transmission will shift through the gears all the way to 4th gear and at lower rpm shift points. In "S", the transmission will shift at higher rpm levels and will go no higher than 3rd gear and light S3 on the dash. Once the vehicle is in 3rd gear (S3) you can then press the S4 button and the transmission will go into 4th gear (when conditions dictate). I believe there is even an S4 indicator on the dash signifying the trans is in 4th gear

The last line looks like it is the key here though.

If the car thinks its in 4th gear when you are trying to start it, obviously it wouldn't start...you could probably hunt around and see if there is a sensor on the transmission stick that runs the "D" vs "S" mode

Transmission


Sounds like the shifter was inbetween gears. Sometimes when I'm shifting to drive I'll get it in between 3rd and 4th and it will try to go but won't go like it does when it's in gear for real.
