Any of the following: -Idle speed needs adjustment -bad PCV valve -worn out spark plugs or plug wires -worn out distributor & rotor -leak in vacuum lines -bad fast idle thermovalve -Bad oxygen sensor If you have an older car with over 70,000 miles on it, I would start by replacing the PCV valve, spark plugs & wires, distributor and rotor.

A 1991 Honda Accord could be overheating if the radiator has a leak. There could also be a problem with the head gasket.

There are several things that can cause your 1992 Honda Accord to start and then die out. The most common cause is an inconsistent flow of fuel. This can be caused by a dirty fuel filter.

Heater core is stopped up or thermostat is stuck open.
