Your ignition switch is getting ready to burn out, the contact inside slowly burns off. I had one go at around 90k miles and it's starting to do it again at 170k.

Many engines have an automatic shut off when the engine becomes too hot. Once the engine cools down it may also be equipped with an automatic startup.

Be sure the cooling fans are functioning when the ac is running.

You can do serious damage to the catalytic converter if the check engine light starts to flash.

If the key is in the on position and the engine is not running, the fuel pump is off. If the engine is running then the fuel pump is also. During the start cycle the pump will only run for 3 seconds unless the engine starts.

A bad catalytic converter can cause hard starts if it has become clogged. This produces excessive back pressure in the engine.

I have to guess at a few things but.. I am guessing because the engine has serious problem with how it is running the engine computer has increased the idle speed very high to try and keep it running. If this is the case putting it into gear will bang very hard and drop the engine speed to below what the engine control computer can keep it running. So it quits. Get the engine fixed.

If the injectors on a 1991 Honda Accord are working well than proceed to check the main relay and fuel filter. Replace the components if they are worn and check the engine with a diagnostic test.

Check for codes on the engine computer. When it quits check for spark and gas pressure to see what is missing.

When you can not figure out why your car makes a strange noise, you take it to a mechanic.

Ignition Control Module are common to cause this. Loss of spark with heat from the engine, when it cools off, starts up.

User Avatar

well if it has the same engine layout as my 1993 190e in the front of the engine there is a fan, and that fan has a clutch integrated into it, to engage when the engine starts to over heat, and they do wear out which means you can stop the fan with your hand while the engine is running. not recommended to try doing with your fingers.

I recommend you change them at 100,000 miles unless the engine starts to run rough, miss, or get poor fuel economy before that.
