1994 Honda Accord 4 cyl Two Wheel Drive Manual 224000 miles
OK, I'll start from the beginning. A month ago my Honda Accord LX manual car drove fine except for when I applied too much gas, it would idle perfect. It would bog down until I let off a little bit then shift just fine. There was like a "sweet spot" for my gas pedal to avoid the bogging. It drove for a while like that until one day It just died while I was driving, started right back up and drove a couple more miles, then died again.This time it wouldn't turn over, just crank. I'd have it towed to my house to have it start right up like nothing happened the next day!? I have changed the fuel filter, fuel pump, distributer cap and rotor, Main Relay, and new plugs and wires with no result!?
I've read some forums regarding similar issues to mine and all signs pointed to the Main Relay. I just bought one the other night put it in, and now it will not stay running at all and throws an ignition systems code when it dies, code 15. The one thing I did notice, is with the original Main Relay when I'd turn it over, the fuel pump would turn on start just fine idle until it warmed up then start to bog and shut down. Id try to start right away just after and would not hear the fuel pump kick on, but I would have spark.
When I throw the NEW Main Relay in, the fuel pump kicks on EVERY time and I have spark. Once it starts then bogs and dies I have no spark but fuel pump still kicks on. This is driving me CRAZY!? I'm starting to think It might be electrical wiring issues shorting things out? I would GREATLY APPRECIATE some insight in this incredibly irritating problem, Thank You!
have the same problem?
