Engine Performance problem
1986 Honda Accord 145000 miles
While I'm driving, the engine will just shut down. No warning, no noise. It just stops. Pretty exciting when it happens in traffic. The difficulty is that it happens maybe 3-4 times a week. Not regularly, and not under any consistent circumstances. Also, when I start the car, cold or hot, it cranks fine, but it doesn't fire at all. Then 2-3 more tries and it starts perfectly. A friend said it might be my PGM-FI relay and another said it was my ICM (something around the distributor, I think). Anyway, the relay is $100 and when I called about the ICM, the parts guy didn't know what that meant, but guessed it was the igniter. That's $233! Any wisdom out there that might save me money? Thanks
have the same problem?
