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

Hi, My Honda Accord...

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

Mechanic's Assistant: Is the fuel filter an external one, or is it inside the tank?

External in the motor room

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

Myself sofar- new parts put in: Fuelfilter, Fuel Pump Main relay, Distributor Cap & Finger, ignition coil

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

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.

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!!!!
