Customer Question
Hi pearl i have...

Hi pearl i have an 87 accord lxi i have spark and fuel pressure from the filter at the fire wall on the passenger side it struggles to start if it does it stumbles at idle and dies if i touch the gas

Mechanic's Assistant: Sometimes things that you think will be really complicated end up being easy to fix with a Honda. The Honda Mechanic I'm going to connect you with knows all the tricks and shortcuts. Are you hoping to fix this yourself?

Absolutley

Mechanic's Assistant: Great! What have you tried so far?

Only replaced the fuel filter on the firewall i did struggle to get the bajo bolts to seal its hard to find the washers

Mechanic's Assistant: Is there anything else the Honda Mechanic should be aware of about your Honda?

Its an 87 with 189000 on it i pulled the head last year on account of a broken cam but has been running great after that

Hello, my name is ***** ***** I am a professional here at Just Answer. I have noticed that your question was not getting a response and thought I would see if you still need help with this.I apologize for the delay and I hope I can still assist you with this here.

The problem you are describing sounds very much like you have a fuel pressure problem even if you have fuel at the filter. You need to start with installing a fuel pressure gauge and monitoring the actual fuel pressure while the problem is occurring. Normal fuel pressure on a properly operating pump should be right at 35 to 37 PSI. Check this and post back with the results and we can work from there.

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

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!!!!
