My Honda Accord V 1997 4 Cyl. manual shift (90k miles)

This answer was rated:

Hi, My Honda Accord V 1997 4 Cyl. manual shift (90k miles) stalls occasionally and won't start again...Changed then so far: Main relay, Fuel pump, Fuel filter, distributor cap & finger, ignition coil, fuel filter, but car after all that did run fine for 2 weeks and now suddenly stalled again...What else could one change/check ??? Thanks so much for your help
JA: Is the fuel filter an external one, or is it inside the tank?
Customer: External in the motor room
JA: Are you fixing your Accord yourself? What have you tried so far?
Customer: Myself sofar- new parts put in: Fuelfilter, Fuel Pump Main relay, Distributor Cap & Finger, ignition coil
JA: Anything else you want the mechanic to know before I connect you?
Customer: Car otherwise in good shape, regularly served

Did you replace the igniter in the distributor as well? If it is getting hot and breaking down, it will kill the spark to the plugs as well as the pilsing ground signal to the furl injectors.

No, only igniton coil new. Also checked ignition switch/key, is ok

The igniter is bolted into the distributor. If you have not replaced it, then that is where I would start. The igniter cannot be tested.

OK will do that and let you know in +/- 10 days, time needed to get that igniter. Best regards Ueli

You are very welcome.
