My 1985 accord, it seems to start fine, when first started it smokes(white)qutie a lot. After driving it for approx. 20 minutes or so it starts to chug, (kinda like it is running out of fuel), I can pull over to the side of the road and let it sit for just a couple of minutes, sometimes less, I dont shut it off I just let it do its thing, it idles horribly, like something is clogged somewhere, then it just frees itself and starts to idle fine, I can then head back down the road for another 20+ minutes and then it is the same thing all over again. It dosen't overheat and there is oil in it, I have put heat gas dryer in it to make sure no water in fuel, I have been told maybe a bad head gasket or head, I have no ideas please help.

1991 Accord Ignition System Won't Start

It cranks but it won't start. The timing belt was broken and replaced. Did ok for a while then it happened again.
Had it towed to a shop and when it was set on the ground it cranked fine. It was ok for a few days then quit again.
The shop said replace distributor. That did not help. It has power at the black/yellow wire coming into the distributor but nothing registers on the timing light when cranking over.

2002 Accord Drive Train & Driveline Malfunction

While the transmission shifts with some irregularity, the most noticeable and bothersome problem is that it starts in a higher gear after you stop and then accelerate -- accelerating extremely slow. However, all symptoms go away once the car is warmed up.

The dealer wants to replace the transmission. But, it works perfectly when warm. Your opinion?

Many thanks!

1999 Accord Windows & Glass Chugging

Recently, both my passenger and driver side windows are not operating correctly. Both windows (which are powered) can roll up and down. However, when rolling both windows up, they start chugging once they reach the top; as if they aren't catching a gear tooth. When I took the car to my local dealership, they said that I would need to replace either the window motor or window regulator. Is there any way to tell which part it is? Again, this only happens when each window reaches the top when rolling them up.

I replaced the timing belt of my 1991 Honda Accord EX coupe with the 4 cyl motor again at 180, 000 miles. A couple of months later I noticed that the car was beginning to burn a little oil. It smoked badly at cold start. Now with 217, 000 miles, I am getting worried. It is burning about a quart every few hundred miles. Since I now live in another state, pretty far from my original repair guy, I am nervous about taking it to just anyone. Do you think that the camshaft seals or crankshaft seals could be defective? Would it be burning oil this bad if it were these seals? I have not noticed any oil leaking on my driveway or from under the car. All this began after the last timing belt change. The motor did seem to make a new whirr sound the day I picked it up but the mechanic reassured me that it was normal. Should I be worried that another problem now exist?

Manual transmission. Four wheel disc and ABS. Seems to happen when warm outside (and high humidity). When stopping, brakes seem to fade. At complete stop, system seems to depressurize and the pedal goes all the way to the floor.

1999 Accord Electrical & Lighting Systems Malfunction

After driving for an hour or so on the highway through heavy rain, we stopped for gas. After filling up, when I started the car, the alarm system activated, which started the horn beeping rythmically. No button on the remote shut off the horn, nor did turning off the ignition. Eventually, we just drove away, and after a minute or two, the horn stopped beeping.

After another hour, we completed our trip. At this point, either opening or closing a door also set the horn alarm off. After the car sat for several hours, the horn alarm problem did not recur.

Clearly, water crept in somewhere and shorted something out. But where? Is there a particular connector which is a likely candidate?

I've a 95 Honda Accord, about 185, 000 miles. It idles rough, mostly when stopped, but runs well when in motion. It especially shakes and shimmies when I turn on the air. Changed the air filter, but the car does need some regular maintenance ... tune up, and so forth.

The signal lights do not work for about 10 minutes after starting up the car, whether driving or idling. They don't tick or flash on the dahsboard and they don't signal outside at the rear of the car. Eventually, they come back to life. A local mechanic thought, from the description, it is an electrical problem that would cost $45 to fix (labor) once we bought an inexpensive part (a switcher?).

I had a tune up on my Accord EX. After that, the Engine Check light started coming on. I went to one shop and I was told that it would probably cost over $250 just to diagnose it. The dealer's mechanic will only take one hour to diagnose, but will probably cost over $800 if his suspicions are confirmed. First shop mentioned a Transmission Code "14, " and has never dealt with my problem. I want to save the money and just go to the dealership. What should I expect from a reputable shop?

1997 Accord Electrical & Lighting Systems Failing

Hi everytime I drive at random it will the power will cut out for a split second and the speedometer will drop and the lights in the car will shut off for that second. It will all come back on and will be fine. Sometimes it won't happen but once it does happen it'll keep doing it over and over every minute or so. Also when I turn off my car when this happens I'll lose power for a second and my power locks won't work and everything will be shut off and clock and head unit will be reset.

I don't know if this has anything to do with the problem I described but there's been a sound that goes up in pitch everytime I accelerate. I don't know if its coming from my speakers or what but the pitch follows my acceleration. Thanks for all the help.

1991 Accord Engine Malfunction

A cylinder went out on our Honda a few months ago. We drove it for short distances before we had the engine head replaced along with exhaust and intake valves, thermostate, cap and dist roter button. When we got the car back, it is producing an enormous amount of smoke when turned on and continues when the car is driven. The repair shop said that the o-rings and pistons are now damaged and there was no way to tell this until the engine was put back together and the engine fired.

I need to know if this is true-that the head had to be replaced before the additional problem was detected. The car did not smoke at all before the head gasket was replaced. Now we cannot drive the car at all because of the polution and the smell.

However, the hose goes about 3 feet before stopping. I tried two different diameter of hoses without luck. Neither hose touches fuel and I know the tank is half full. No amount of pursuation gets the hose to advance any further. Is there an anti-siphoning device of which I am unaware blocking my path? I cannot find anything in Chilton's about an anti-siphon device, factory installed or other. Is there a way for me to drain the fuel, short of driving it to a repair shop?

I bought my 1988 Honda Accord Lxi from a private party about 1 1/2 yrs ago. The car has in excess of 200k miles and I have found out since that it was not very well maintained. The car runs ok, but has started smoking considerably; at first this happened in the morning when I started it, and as it warmed up the smoking would stop. Now, the car continuously smokes when I start it up an/or drive it; I'M TKING VOLCANIC LIKE SMOKE! It just billows out as a white/beige flume that makes it impossible to drive down the driveway. I have a mechanic friend who services it, and he thinks it could be an oil leak into the combustion chamber causing a mix with the gasoline. The most recent service to the car was an oil change and engine flush; I added an oil additive (Marvel or something) and used Pennzoil 20w40 weight oil.

This is my last resort; any advice you can give about how to approach this matter is appreciated. This car is a candidate for donation if it's gonna cost me more than the cost to replace a PCV valve.

1999 Accord Electrical & Lighting Systems Malfunction

-The problem: My dash lights and AC Console Lights do not turn on whatsoever, and my dimmer dimmer knob has no effect.

-The Cause: When I was installing my head unit into my 1999 Honda Accord 4 dr EX sedan, something strange happened. The Dash Lights and the Console Lights (the bulbs, not the LED's) flickered on and off a few times. I looked at my illumination and dimmer wire for the head unit wire-harness and saw that I forgot to cap them, but just cut them flush.

I believe either the illumination or dimmer wire touched metal while I was pushing the head unit into the bay.

What I Have Done:
I have checked all the fuses on both the passenger side and drivers side, and I have checked the fuses in the hood. I have replaced every fuse pertaining to "Illumination", "Interior Lights", "Dimmer" even though NONE looked blown. I have yet to try new relays for Lighting System 1 and 2. I looked for a fuse for the dimmer relay, but this model does not have one. (no spot for it/ no fuse insert).
I have also taken the ac panel and the dash out to check the bulbs and circuit boards. There are not shorts and the bulbs are perfect.
My only guess would now be Fusable Links.

If i am on the right track, where are these, and how do I fix it? (I am a very poooor college student). If I am leaving some fuse unchecked, where do I look?

Once again, all the led's and the check lights on the dash work fine...it's just the bulbs controlled by the dimmer.

On the left side of the steering column (by the dash) is a lever for locking and unlocking the steering column in place (every time I lift it up to lock, it slips down by itself and unlocks and refuses to stay locked.) Apparently there are no adjustments I can make to tighten it. Honda says it is attached to the steering column itself and a whole new steering column is needed. Have you ever ran across something like this and is that the ONLY alternative? There's 38, 000 on car. 2000 over warranty.

1999 Accord Fuel System Stalling

I have a 99 accord V6 with 186k miles. The car has been stalling on me recently when driving and sometimes when idling. It won't start for 5 minutes, Then it will start and run again. I have had my plugs replaced, new ignition switch, new catalytic converter EGR valve kit, new distributor cap and rotor. In all cases the work has been done at the dealership. Why can't they diagnose problem correctly.

When I press the brakes the brake/horn fuse keeps popping. I checked the bulbs and they're fine. The fuse has been replaced and it pops each time I tap on the break pedal. What could be wrong?

1988 Accord Fuel System Won't Start

Recently purchased an 88 honda accord dx 5-speed carb.
Was idling extreme high/low. Rebuilt carb. Then car would start, but when you pressed on the gas pedal, it stalled and died. Eventually just wouldn't start. Could not even smell gas in carb. Replaced fuel filter, replaced fuel cut of relay.
Now, will once in a while start, run for about 2 seconds, then dies. Have to pump pedal several times prior to starting to get this to happen. Otherwise, will not start. Any ideas of what else I could look for? Thanks

2002 Accord Drive Train & Driveline Malfunction

While the transmission shifts with some irregularity, the most noticeable and bothersome problem is that it starts in a higher gear after you stop and then accelerate -- accelerating extremely slow. However, all symptoms go away once the car is warmed up.

The dealer wants to replace the transmission. But, it works perfectly when warm. Your opinion?

Many thanks!

1997 Accord Electrical & Lighting Systems Malfunction

Whenever I turn the Honda off, the blower for the A/C & heater still remains on. Eventhough the car is off. This then drains the battery so that the car will not start the next day. I can manually turn the blower off so that it doesn't blow air out, but the electrical light on the blower remains on. Any clue.
Thanks

I changed the drivers side window, and after I put the door panel back on, and shut the door, the door locked. The un-lock handle will not unlock the door.I need to know how to unlock the door, and maybe a diagram of what the inside door lock looks like.

1999 Accord General Stalling

My Honda shuts off while driving. It then usually is hard to restart (taking several tries). I noticed that it seems to happen more often when it is hot outside. I replaced the fuel (main) relay under the steering column thinking that it might just think I dont have any gas, but this didnt work. The other day, it shut off and back on several times in row--real fast..i only knew this was happening by watching the lights on the dash (blinking key means off) and (flashing all lights means just turned on). I have no idea what causes this, but it seems to be very random. I can go days or weeks without any sort of problem at all.

1987 Accord Engine Chugging

Often, after half an hour of driving, and around half a tank of gas or less the car will start to loose power and jerk heavily. I solve it by getting off the highway and filling up! I had my mechanic look at it 3 times. He checked for water in fuel, he changed the distributor cap and wires after doing the wet down test. But, it happened again today.
Thanks for any advice.

1987 Accord Electrical & Lighting Systems Malfunction

After disconnecting the battery terminals to change the car battery and installing a new battery, the following electrical systems no longer work: interior dome light, tachometer, turn signals, fuel gauge. Each worked perfectly fine before changing the battery (and all other systems work fine with the new battery). Seems like a fuse issue, but could these really all be connected?

1983 Accord Fuel System Won't Start

Car won't start until the gas cap is removed to release built-up pressure. Will run for a while, then stop--requiring gas cap removal again. When cap is removed, pressure (not vacuum) is perceptable.

1996 Accord Electrical & Lighting Systems Malfunction

Left turn signals (lights) only. Rear flashes very quickly (coincides with the turn signal on the instrument panel). Front doesn't flash at all. Do I just need to replace the front signal?

1993 Accord Engine Vibration

I recently purchased a 1993 Honda Accord for my teenage daughter for her first car. It has 119, 000 miles on it. I feel a vibration in the steering wheel when brake is applied and car comes to a complete stop. The car also idles rough when in reverse or A/C is on. Any suggestions on what might becausing this?

I took the car to a reputable mechanic and he suggested that the engine mounts may be worn, which is why I feel more vibration. I was thinking the idle may need adjusted, but I was told there is nothing to adjust, it's all electronic.

Thank you

Replaced engine in car along with rear motor mount which is vaccum controled. When vehicle is in gear (all except park or nuetral) when the steering wheel is turned in either direction the engine idle races to about 2500 rpm and does not go back down until you shift back into park or nuetral. No check engine lights. Please help customer is wanting car.

1985 Accord Fuel System Stalling

On colder, high humidity days, the car slows down and finally stalls. I pulled the carb cover/air filter box off and one of the venturis had ice coating the inside of it, but the other was fine. When I sit for 10 minutes, the car will start right back up and run just fine...carb is a 2 barrel, four cylinder automatic with only 95, 000 miles.

Battery lost charge after car was parked for a day or so. Several times I jump started it successfully, but the last time I had help and he cross polarized the jumper. I didn't realize until I tried to start the car and heard an unusual hum inside the passenger compartment. What damage has most likely been done? Its a 1977 not '75

1992 Accord Engine Chugging

my 92 accord acts as though full choke is on while driving any speed at times. seems to get worse as you drive the car more and more. you can be sitting a red light and try to take off, but it just does not want to go. you have to floor it in order to get a response at times. i realize that it could be a variety of things, but was wondering if this was common in other hondas and if you know specific instances in which you discovered exactly what the problem was and the cure. thanks.

1988 Accord Windows & Glass Leaking

I just bought a 1988 honda accord lxi with 182000 miles. I have noticed after it rains that my trunk carpet is wet. When i have the defrost on I get water drop-lets from the vent. Now the previous owner had sealed up the sunroof with silicone and told me that the drain holes were clogged. I plan on taking of the silicone and cleaning out the vents. Is the sunroof causing these leakes? What causes the water in the trunk and water comming out the defrost vent?
Oh, yes there is one more thing. When I change the radio from AM to FM the radio will work for about 10 seconds and then go dead. The lights are still on but none of the buttons work. The radio will only turn on only if I shut the car off and turn it back on and even then the FM wil only work for a couple of seconds. As long as i leave it on Am the radio does not shut off. Any ideas?
I look forward to your reply. Thanks!

1992 Accord Fuel System Malfunction

I have a 1992 accord and it won't start. I cranks and it almost starts but then it just dies. It acts as if it is out of gas. in the morning while driving my speedometer and Tach went haywire jumping all over the place and the car died (no power) I let it coast and it came back on. Now the car won't start. When I try to start it, it cranks fine and I smell a little gas when I pump it. It almost starts but does not. Is this the main relay or a fule issue?

My speedodometer fluctuates while driving and sometimes does not work at all. Could the problem be my speedodometer cable, if so where is it located and how hard is it to fix?
