Welcome to Just Answer!

 

Are you getting fuel pressure to the fuel filter?

Did you replace the entire distributor assembly from one car to the other or did you take out some parts from one to the other?

Do you have dash lights when turning the key ON or trying to start?

Please let me know, so I can further assist you. Thank you.

I do have dash lights when turning the key.
I replaced entire distributor assembly from a running car.
Where is the fuel filter on this car.
Mechanic for Honda: 02hondafreak, Honda/Acura Technician replied 13 years ago

OK,

 

The fuel filter is located on the firewall of the car. Here:

Fig. 8: Fuel filter on 1990-93 fuel injected Accords.

You may also want check the main relay if you are not getting any fuel to the fuel filter. The main relay is located, here:

The main relays failing on these year cars are notorious. The main relay controls the electrical path to the fuel pump & to the ignition system. The contact points inside become open, causing intermittent starting issues or no starting issues. Also, the ignition switch (electrical part) also have issues with these cars, but it sounds like it is working. Check the fuel pressure & main relay. Any other questions, please let me know. Thank you.

Is the main relay bolted to the computer by the steering column under dash?
Mechanic for Honda: 02hondafreak, Honda/Acura Technician replied 13 years ago

OK,

 

The computer is underneath the passenger side carpet, underneath a plate. The main relay is under the driver's side dash, very near the steering column. Here is a link that may help besides the above picture:

Hopefully that will help, that link walks you through the entire removal & installation process. There is even a tab to fix the relay if you would like. Any other questions, please let me know. Thank you.

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

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
