Engine Mechanical problem
1996 Honda Accord 4 cyl Front Wheel Drive Manual 192000 miles
OK. First, I was driving and it kept stalling, fortunately I was able to park it. Started up just fine again and engine sounded normal, then "choked" out. All interior lights. Even a/c turned on and off. I started with the fuel pump, dropped the tank and replaced the whole bracket. Started again, and it idled for a minute or so then choked out again, all interior lights working. Continuing to start over and over again led to engine not turning at all when cranked. A couple of hours later tried it again and it did the same thing. The battery and alternator are new. Spark plugs are new, bays were cleaned out. Wiring to the plugs are fairly new, fuel lines are looking good and replaced. There is not any noticeable damage to the vacuum lines. My initial guess was the distributor but I only know a little about a little bit when it comes to car repairs. My other guess would be the air/fuel mixture since it is "choking" without a sputter; however if that was the case, why would it run at all if there was no air meeting the fuel?
If I can pinpoint what is going on here it would be great!
have the same problem?
