Car has died two times at a red light. It turns over

Customer Question
Car has died two...

Car has died two times at a red light. It turns over attempting to crank but does not seem to be getting fuel. I do not smell gas so it is as though it is not pumping gas. I can wait a few minutes and it will start and run with no apparent problem. I am thinking a relay as it runs fine when it is getting gas.

Mechanic's Assistant: How many miles are on the car? Has the car been starting normally?

2002 with 157K and yes it starts normal and runs fine otherwise

Mechanic's Assistant: What is the model of your '02 Acura?

Sorry MDX

Mechanic's Assistant: Are you fixing your vehicle yourself? What have you tried so far?

Have not tried anything so far but figure I can change a relay from what I have found online about it.

Mechanic's Assistant: Anything else you want the mechanic to know before I connect you?

That's it other than I am a nice guy!

When this issue occurs do you hear the fuel pump hum or buzz at the fuel tank at all with the key first turned on or when cranking over the engine?

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!!!!
