Good afternoon,

What you describe sounds like it might be a dead fuel pump. When you first turn the key to the run position (not the crank position) you should hear a faint buzz from the fuel tank area for about 3 seconds. Check to see if you can hear the buzz.

Any phone call pop-ups you may see are automated. Not generated by me.

Yeah this was just a one time thing. I started car at 4pm and it runs fine
Mechanic for Acura: Jared D, ASE Certified Technician replied 8 months ago

How odd. Maybe just an intermittent issue in that case.

How long has it been since the spark plugs were changed?

Just had plugs changed a few weeks ago also had the valves adjusted and new valve cover gasket

There isn't much that will make it stall one minute and go away the next. I think you may just have to drive it a little and see if any other symptoms develop. If it does act up again see if you can hear the fuel pump buzz. If not then that might be the issue. Sometimes fuel pumps will not work at one temperature and work again once it warms up, but usually that only happens when it goes from cold to warm.

What Customers are Saying:

I took the Power Steering O-Ring service bulletin linked from JustAnswer to my Acura dealer, and not only did they no-charge the o-ring, they also replaced the power steering pump at no cost.

Gary RStevenson Ranch, CA

Thank you very much for saving my daughter and her family a lot of money on her Honda. You are definitely on my list for future help. Thanks, again.

FredUSA

I just heard from my mechanic. You were right...a $45.00 job. THANK YOU!! Your response was received in less than 10 minutes!!

Linda B.USA

Your answers were clear and the diagrams were perfect. Dealer wanted $87 for an hour of labor and even I did it in 15 minutes.

EdUSA

HONDA PLATINUM was great. I really appreciate his help. I was ready to trade my new Honda until he told me to wait until I got 3,000 miles on it and my gas mileage would get much better.

SummerUSA

Wonderful service, prompt, efficient, and accurate. Couldn't have asked for more. I cannot thank you enough for your help.

Mary C.Freshfield, Liverpool, UK

This expert is wonderful. They truly know what they are talking about, and they actually care about you. They really helped put my nerves at ease. Thank you so much!!!!
