I have a 99 Honda Accord, 156,000 miles (approx.), Automatic, 4-Cylinder V-Tech Engine. It is not making any strange sounds or leaking anywhere that we have found. I recently took it to a Honda Dealer and had the EGR Valve replaced and a tune-up done (about 2 or 3 months ago). They told me that everything looked good except that I needed to have the transmission fluid changed and a new timing belt. It was fine until about three weeks ago when it decided to not start when it gets hot. I can start it perfectly fine in the AM (after it has set all night) and drive it for an hour without any problems. Sometimes I can get right back in and drive again, other times it dies when I put it in gear, but as soon as I shut it off, it won't start back up. Sometimes it will take 15-30 minutes to restart, other times it takes up to 2 hours? It turns over but acts like it isn't getting any gas, as when I push the gas pedal it doesn't seem to do anything. The engine light is not on either. Everyone I know has a different opinion of what it could be but the mechanics say they can't find anything. One person says a coil could be bad, another says it could be spark plugs (which are brand new). I get stranded everywhere I go when it is hot out because it seems to exacerbate the problem. I am completely cluelss. If anyone could lead me in some sort of direction to try and find the problem, it would be much appreciated.
have the same problem?
