Engine Performance problem
1999 Honda Accord 4 cyl Front Wheel Drive Automatic 154200 miles
I took my Honda Accord in for repair because the check maintenance light was staying on. Sometimes it was difficult to start the car and in weather above 35 degrees the car was stalling out, but with no pattern. First they said the timing belt and other belts, direct fit converter, and power steering pump needed replaced. But when I drove the car, it was worse in starting up and stalling. Next they said the fuel regulator needed replaced. Again when I drove it the problem was worse. I didn't start on the first try and I drove it half a mile and it stalled. I was losing confidence in the work being done. Now I'm told that the ignition interpretor/harness need replaced and it needs a new distributor, but I've lost faith in the work they're doing. Should I try another garage or is it even worth spending more money on these new items? And roughly how much would the ignition and distributor cost?
have the same problem?
