Engine Mechanical problem
1999 Honda Accord 4 cyl Front Wheel Drive Automatic 130000 miles
Honda Accord, 130000 - History unknown. Car has driven fine for me for several years. For the past few months, I have the following symptoms:
1. Car is drives fine at all speeds - steady state. However, when slowing to a red light or acclerating from a slow speed it periodically jerks a bit.
2. If the car is not started for a few days. It will not start. It turns over and churns but the car will just not start. If I do this for a few consecutive days (normally 2-3) it will eventually start normally and drive fine (with the exception listed above).
Today, I drove the car. I changed the oil tonight. It had been over 10k since the oil was changed. When I was done the car won't start. It displays symptoms listed in #2 above. I verified oil level, tighness of oil cap, drain plug and filter. During the oil change, the only thing that happened that was 'unusual' was that when I removed the oil filter I spread a good about of oil on all components below the filter when I dropped the filter accidentally.
I am ready to affect whatever repairs I need to restore this car. Your assistance is greatly appreciated.
have the same problem?
