Honda Accord 2000 EX V6.
I have a weird problem. When starting the engine after driving it for an hour, the engine starts but then it dies.
For example, after work, I drive home. No problem starting the car at work. When I get home, I turn off the engine. After 20 - 30 minutes, I start the car again. This time, it seems like it's having a hard time to start. It sputters and sometimes it dies. When it dies, I try to start again and it starts. At this point, I can hear cranking sounds in the engine. I am able to drive fine, and no problem with stopping the car. It's just that I hear that weird sound.

I have no problem starting the car in the morning.

Again, this problem only occurs when I start the car 20 - 30 minutes after I've driven for a long time (an hour, 35 km).

I had my alternator and battery changed a year ago.

Any ideas on what could be causing this?

Thanks!

Ok then you have to retrieve the codes stored on your computer, that way you will know what the problem is, when a sensor fails, the computer store the info.

Find a place where they can scan your car computer, or if you want you can buy a cheap scanner in the link below.

In some autoparts rent those scanners ask there.

Thanks for the reply.

I meant to say that the engine light is on before I actually start the car.
But when the car starts, the engine light is not on anymore.

Hope this is clear.

Sorry for the confusion and thanks again fisherman. : Wink:
