I am having the same problem. I have been told that it may be a distributor problem. However I had the distributor replaced with another used one and still having the same problem. Could be this one is bad also, but not sure. Let me know if you find a fix.

AnswerI found the following information that may be worth trying.



AnswerThis is most commonly caused by a malfunctioning main relay. It's a $50.00 part and is located under the dashboard, left of the steering wheel. AnswerIf your car has a full tank of gas, open up the gas cap to release the pressure, wait a couple of minutes, and try again. Works every time for mine. Even sometimes if it's above half full, on hot days it won't start without releasing that pressure first. ~JCS AnswerI had this same problem several years ago. I called a local Honda dealership and asked for a technician. Apparently, I caught the right technician, who also recommended I release the pressure by opening the fuel cap. Apparently, hot days can create a vacuum in the fuel line which has to be relieved by opening the gas cap.

It worked great that day, and has helped me 3 or 4 times since then. My 91 Accord still runs like a champ, but every once in awhile I still have to release this pressure on hot days.

You need two things for rainbows: raindrops and direct sunshine. If there is sunshine it means that the sky is not completely filled with rain. If it is not filled with rain, then only part of the sky will show a rainbow.
