Accord: I have a serious problem with my 91 honda accord 5

Customer Question
I have a serious problem...
I have a serious problem with my 91 honda accord 5 speed. No one seems to be able to figure out whats wrong. A few yrs.ago i noticed that once in a while only after downshifting and i tured it would die. Also sometimes it wouldnt start(catch) afterwards. Also sometime it would do one without the other. Also a maybe seperate problem is that when i slow the rpm's down the check engine light comes one which then it idols rough and tries to die when its at a stop. Then related to it is that then it wont start. It used to not start really only after the check engine light came on but now it does it all tje time. It can take up to an hr.to start at times. The check engine light used to come on after my speed sensor went out so i replaced it and it stilm did it so i was told its the gear thats out. I havent replaced it. But everything under the hood is new..please help..is it safe to drive u think?

If so - is it spinning fast or slow / sluggish?Too - what exactly has been done by way of tests - and exactly what parts have been replaced in a bid to cure this?Please reply here- when I receive your reply, I will get back to you asap thereafter- Rgds, MIKE.......................................

It cranks. Sounds like a normal healthy car..no special tests have been done. When it was hooked up to the computer all it comes back with is the speed sensor code
Customer reply replied 2 years ago
Everything has been done...i bought it with a rebuilt engine 5 yrs.ago..i put a new clutch..trani.alternator..coil..speed sensor..thermostat..fuel pump..starter..timing belt..all other belts..i could use a new battery after all the cranking it had to do and it dies after trying to start the car about 6 times..

Customer reply replied 2 years ago
So basically a new distriburor then?
Mechanic for Honda: Mike, Honda Technician replied 2 years ago
Hi again..Thank you for your reply.... My apologies as I wasn't on over the weekend.I cannot be "certain" that is the fault -obviously I would be foolish to say that without testing etc... but what I can tell you is that the crank sensor, in the dist yes, is an extremely common fault on this model..... so its a good bet yes - but , I have to advise to have it tested properly of course.Some people do just go ahead and replace the whole dist on these as its a whole lot easier - and it covers the other components in there too - in case... Really and in all honesty, on that year, many would decide to do just that -using a good 2nd hand one... and go from there.I hope you understand where Im coming from - Im trying to be helpful , honest and save you money all at the same time ;) but certainly your symptoms do add up yes.Let me know how you go..and / or let me know if you need anything further on this..~~~~ Meantime - Please do click on the "Exc / Ok rating" for me at this time.. "Thank you" in advance for that ... Note that you can get back to me anytime at all after doing the rating - it doesn't close you out.-- Best Rgds, MIKE.

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
