#12737 of 13114 Re: 92 accord ex auto not starting after sitting all day [lastwraith]
Nov 05, 2005 (7:37 am)
I too own a 1992 honda accord and have had the main relay replaced. Soon after I found out I was using a shoddy mechanic. Is it possible to not install this properly. This was in august 05 i had it replaced, as of yesterday 10/05/2005 the car stalled, I went into the store and it started within about 10-20 mins. my question is this, could it be the ignitor is now shot, becuase about a 1.5 years ago i had the distributor replaced but not the ignitor bacause it broke down when i was on a trip and it would have added another $100 to the job. pls email me some advice!

Mine was replaced under 2000 miles, and it did resolved the noise, but now it has started again.

#12740 of 13114 Honda Accord NOX Emissions failure
Nov 05, 2005 (2:24 pm)
I just received a failure for high speed NOX emissions on a 1994 accord LX 2.2L. Low speed well within limits. No check engine light or any other obvious signs of trouble. Car has 140K on it but runs fine. Not sure what to look at for possible source of problem.

NOx emissions are the result of elevated combustion temperatures. The likely culprit is something with the EGR (exhaust gas recirculation) system. This system lowers the combustion temperature by recirculating some inert exaust gas through the combustion chamber. It could be as simple as a faulty EGR valve.

Just want to know the exact position to put the string in.
Is it where the thin top edge of the glass window hit when closed?
My understanding is that the cross-section of the run channel is an inverted U, and it is the top of the inverted U, NOT the two sides.
Is it the foam tape (weather stripping, foam with sticky tape at the back) that you used?
I have enough with this too in my 2004 .
Thanks a lot .

if you get it fixed, please post what the cause was. i've been dealing with the same thing for over a year. each place claims to know the cause and none of it helps. nox numbers are exactly the same. i have the same car as you too. had the converter replaced twice. combustion chamber cleaned. general tune up. egr valve tested and told it's ok. only thing i haven't replaced is the oxygen sensor but i was told that isn't the issue. dealer tried to say the aftermarket converters weren't big enough and needed to use a honda part. too bad it's about $800. $1100 with labor. i didn't believe him... but i'm still not passing so who knows. good luck.
#12744 of 13114 Had to trade in '05 Honda Accord EXL

I couldn't stand the creeks and rattles anymore and traded it in. Too me this is totally ridiculous for a new car. Honda has to stop putting in all those cheap plastic interior pieces and start upgrading their interiors. This seems to big a major issue with all the new Hondas.
#12745 of 13114 slowly overheat problem 95HondaAccord4drs LX
Nov 06, 2005 (2:40 pm)
I have the same problem with my daughters 95 Accord LX. What I did discover is a very small leak on the back of the right side of the engine facing the firewall. As long as there is coolant in the radiator and the reservoir it only drips , but if air get sin it runs very fast. By puting my hand back there it feels like a small round hole and maybe something is missing - or is it a safety release. I'm looking for help in this matter also.

You warranty trade in or did you trade it at the dealership for another car (did you take a loss on money)? I'm actually having the same issues with the right front passenger side. It rattles and creaks and drives me nuts. The dealership is very slow to order parts and have me come back in to fix the problems. I'm hoping that with these new parts it will make a difference.
