I have a 1993 Honda...
I have a 1993 Honda Accord, I just changed the main relay due to it shutting off immediately after starting and that didn’t fix the problem. I also tried the ignition switch while the car was running and it still died. What should I do next?

Ok

ok the most common issue is the distributor itself. it contains 3 sensors inside that fail.

the best resolution is to replace the distributor assembly itself. very common failure. we used to stock them as they were so common for failing for this exact issue.

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!!!!
