1987 Honda Accord 4 cyl Front Wheel Drive Automatic 122000 miles
Hola. I have a 1987 Honda accord DX with 122.000 miles on it. Last night I was driving about 30 miles an hour when the engine quit. It has from time to time when I go to accelerate, it hesitates for a moment like it wants to die before it answers to the gas pedal. It is carbureted. I just installed a new water pump and thermostat on it last month. It has had a problem with the temperature of the heater’s output on colder days in the 30 degrees and below when driving down the road it turns ice cold air in output to the cabin. The temp gage will remain below cold unless the car is setting at idle for extended periods. And the gauge raises about quarter of the way, until I start driving down the road then it drops back to below cold a stays and the air output turns cooler. Is it possible that the timing belt broke or the engine jumped time? I have never had a car engine just quit operating like this. I have full power electrically. The starter turns over but the cranking sounds odd. I do not know if it is sparking or not yet.
Any help you can give me is greatly appreciated.
I use the car in my work. And need to get it back on the road. Blessings in the name of Jesus
