    Hi All,

    Hopefully someone can help.. I'm having trouble with my 92 Accord.. 5spd...
    About once a week, it won't start..... tries to, but just won't fire. I'll
    let it sit for a few hours, then it will start without a problem We've
    replaced all filters, plugs, plug wires, distributer cap and rotor. Was
    beginning to think it was the fuel pump, but when it does start, it runs

    Has anyone else had this problem, if so, could you point me in the right
    direction. I'm not looking forward to dropping $300 for a local garage to
    tell me "it could be this..." and apparently my accord is "too old" for
    AutoZone's gizmo to tell me what the problem is.

    If anyone has any info, I'd appreciate it

  2. Hi Steph,

    I got nearly the same problem.

    My 1992 Prelude do not start, when the car is hot
    because of direct sun shine or when the engine
    was turned off a few minutes before.

    The garage did not find the problem.
    May be it is something with the catalytic converter
    or sensors or electronic ... ?

    I hope somebody will have a real solution.

    Kind regards
    Joachim Engel.

    Have you cleaned your fuel injectors? You can get some Techroline at you
    local autoparts. I use Cheveron gas and it keeps my injectors clean.

    I think I had the same problem with my 92 accord last fall. The fix was to
    replace the electric relay located underneath the sterring wheel. Its a
    little tricky to install but it can be done the part cost about 100 plus.

  6. OK Gang been there done this.

    Under the dash, is an ignition relay. Due to summer(hot weather) winter
    (cold weather), the relay fails over time.
    I sold my 91to my boss who soon had this same problem. It's actually quite

    Now, go to www.batauto.com and leave a post in the import message board for
    "Honda Dude"
    This guy really knows his stuff. He can speak to installation.

    I believe the part was 100.00 bucks.

    Hope this helps.

    Please, read the description of the symptoms, and the cure explained at
    this site... It certainly has nothing to do with clogged injectors or
    the catalytic converter. . . . Steph said: "I let it sit for a few

  8. Had the same problem.. the problem may be resolved with the replacement of
    your main relay.
