I have been having issues with my 2000 Honda Accord stalling usually in stop and go traffic, or recently while on the highway at 70mph. I notice the engine sluggish and the throttle unresponsive. This is not an electrical problem because the engine remains on, only I cannot get any response when I step on the gas. There is currently a recall on the ignition switch, which I am ineligible for. This problem happens randomly.
Weirdly this happens most when there is luggage in the trunk or the trunk is over loaded. Is there a sensor in the trunk somewhere that affects the fuel pump? Usually happens after the car has been running for a while.
No check engine lights, diagnostic showed nothing wrong.
I have been researching, and found similar problems related to ignition switch, or main fuel relay, or fuel pump.
Any help would be appreciated, I am taking it in for service tomorrow and going to start with the ignition switch, and see what he says. I trust the mechanic but would like to pin point the problem to save some money.
Thanks for you help in advance.
have the same problem?
