91 Accord EX auto w/about 350,000 miles. Was trying once in my life to take a car to 500,000 but it seems to have finally hit the wall. I'm 68 , on disability & not much money so my choices are limited. I have been looking for the past several weeks for a CRV or accord that about 10 years old. The reason I finally gave up on my car was I thought it was a transmission
problem but now I'm not so sure! Several things happened to my car before it almost stopped. It started with my car getting gradually slower taking off , you'd have to
get up to about 30 (maybe 3rd gear) before it would start to respond. My car also was having a hard time starting in the morning. At the end my car was barely moving in 1st
, not able to make up a very slight incline but on flat ground it would finally kick in & run .
The same when I start it. I can't even tell when it starts , no power , ect, but all the sudden the engine starts reving. I'm not sure if this is just coincidental but it's made me wonder if I might be having fuel pump
and or fuel filter problems. or something besides transmission. The mechanic I've been using does not specialize in Honda's , but he is honest , work's for a low price and if you can put up w/the sarcasm he throws @ you all the time (LOL) he is pretty good. He is severely disabled w/legs so he has several older men that hang out there help him when he can't reach it. He lets me buy parts w/his discounts from his supplier or we use pull-a-parts. I would really appreciate any advice you could give me before I have the car towed to a mechanic or ditch it. Right now I have no way to get around. Thanks again, Bill (Simmons) Lafayette, La.
