In your car is a little device called the Main Relay that causes BIG problems. The Main Relay is generally bolted to the left side of your car in the passenger compartment, right about at the height of your left knee. It has three functions: 1. When you turn the key to "on" it powers up the fuel pump for three seconds, then turns it off. It also powers up the PGM-FI control unit. 2. When you turn the key to "start" it turns the fuel pump back on during the cranking process. 3. When you release the key (turning it back to "on," in effect) it leaves the fuel pump on because you need gas flowing to the engine to keep it running. What's happening to you is that, when you release the key, it's turning the fuel pump back off. The Main Relay handles a lot of current, it gets hot and there's no cooling air going to it, so the solder joints crack. Find this thing--google "picture of Honda main relay" to see what you're looking for--remove it, resolder all the joints and put it back in. It's free and it usually works. your ignition switch, you can crank the car and hold it in a particular position and it stays running but when u release that halfway position to its regular position it cuts off. You need to get another ignition switch

Fuel pump failure is the most likely cause but it can be other things. Check to see if the fuel pump is running. Can be a blown fuel pump fuse or bad fuel pump relay. But on a 19 year old car the pump very well may be defective.

A leaking manifold seal on the intake will cause a popping noise on the 1996 Honda Accord. This can heard most clearly on days when the weather is cold because the seals tend to shrink.

The Charcoal Canister which is located on the engine fire wall just under the control box and fuel filter needs to be replaced as it can no longer store after burn fuel.That is why the smell is more intense after driving and worst if the blower fan is running.

the distributor does not work, you can either try cleaning it or replace it.

The primary cause of a 1994 Honda Accord to stall when the gas is low is water or contaminants in the gas tank. When the gas level is low, the fuel pickup will pull contaminants that would otherwise be floating well away from the inlet.
