Why would a 97 Honda Accord start fine but after a few minutes the engine will die and not start until you give it a few minutes?

This issue may be the battery, I had a 87 Accord with the same issue and some of the Honda models have a battery that uses water mixed with acid and the water level may be off. Sorry but that answer is full of crap. Depens, when you start it does it run fine, is the little battery light on , in the instrument cluster? if so your alternator is not charging. thus the car is running off the battery til it does not have enough power to support the ecu. But it seems diff in this case. Could be a vary, for one is there a check engine light? The distributor may and possibly be malfunctioning, on warm up its fine but when its near operating temp the dist will adjust the timing a bit , but it may just shut out, (internal ignition control module) can you explain more to what its doing? Kongkit Raggan-Supatanampon There was an ignition-switch recall for this model. A faulty ignition switch could cause either a failure of the starting systems or could cause the loss of spark and/or fuel pressure, both of which are vital, obviously. When the car will not start, does the engine turn-over? If so, then it's a loss of spark or fuel pressure. On Accords, the three compnents are the fuel injection main relay, the ignitor module, and the ignition switch. Listen carefully when you turn the ign switch to the ON position. You should hear a brief whirr that lasts for about 10 seconds or so. that is the in-tank fuel pump pressurizing the system. If there is no sound, then the ign switch/main relay/ fuel pump is suspect. If the problem happens ONLY on hot days (car parked in the sun) and not on cool days, then it's the under-dash fuel injection main relay.

96 Honda Accord has an interference engine. Replace the Cam belt wrong and you have serious engine damage when you start the vehicle. For this reason you should seek the help of a professional.

A block heater for a Honda Accord helps to quickly raise the temperature of the car to the proper heat level. This allows for a quicker engine start-ups.

The Honda Accord engine of this year is an interference engine. Install this belt incorrectly, start the engine, and it will suffer damage. For this reason, I suggest you take it to a professional or buy a repair manual so you can do it right.

How do u know if a start went off on a 1992 Honda accord.

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.

A 2001 Honda Accord V6 may not start when the battery is bad, there is no fuel, or the ignition system is defective. A bad starter will also prevent the engine from turning over during starting.

The engine in your Accord is an interference engine. For that reason alone, it is critical the belt be replaced correctly. Do it wrong and there will be severe engine damage as soon as you start the engine. Therefore, I recommend you have the belt replaced by a professional. This is not a job for a novice.

If you do not know how to do this then leave this job to a professional. Do it wrong and try to start the engine and you will have internal engine damage as this is an interference engine. Not a job for a novice.

There are a few reasons a 1997 Honda Accord may not start. It is possible that the battery is dead or that it is out of gas. Another possibility is that the starter is worn out.

This is an interference engine and as such if you do this repair incorrectly you will have engine damage when you attempt to start the vehicle. I recommend you have this done by a professional.

User Avatar

No, the engine will turn over it just will not start because it will be getting no fuel as the pump is not running.

Did you check the ECU fuse in the fuse box?

User Avatar

It should last the life of the car if you maintain the car as you should. Let the engine start running rich and do nothing to repair this condition and it will destroy the converter. But keep the engine tuned up and running as it should and you will never have to replace the converter. NEVER had a problem with my 1996 HONDA ACCORD engine and CATALYTIC CONVERTER needed to be replaced at 220,000 MILES.

When a fuel pump is going bad the engine might run rough or completely shut off. Many times the engine will start up and run find for a while. Eventually the engine will shut off and will not start.
