hello all just found this forum and not soon enough... so here is the problem i have a 1993 honda accord ex sedan 5 speed have had this car for about 8yrs with relatively no major problems the other day my girlfriend was driving it to work and all of a sudden the car dies out then restarts twice before finally shutting off 1 block from her work so i got there as soon as i could.when i tried to start the car it wanted to start but then died out i thought it could be the fuel filter being cloged or the pump was going out i checked to see if i could hear the fuel pump and... i could,shecked for spark....there was, at this point i started to check all the fuses relays and such....nothing.which led me to think of the ignition i tried to start the car again this time holding the key on the start position the car ran but once i let go to let it rest in the on position it dies out.so my question is what could it be the ignition control module, ignition switch or actual cylinder any help will be greatly appeciated and sorry for the long post just trying to get all the details. oh yeah i did open up the seering colum to see how hard of a job it could be is this really a one piece ignition?thanks in advance

Found out that the alternator was overcharging the battery which fried it. I replace the battery with a new one and replaced the alternator. Replaced the belts also since it was such tight space to work in. When I attemped to start the car it turned a lil to fast as if the timing had slipped While checking the relays and fuses I found a aftermarket alarm system that look like it was wired by someone with no experience in what they were doing. Also found a toggle switch that seems to shut the power off to the ignition . I think that is the constance drain that was on battery but not sure. If anyone can give me some info on the car spinning over so fast would be appreciated and thanks in advance.

2 weeks ago one of our friends changed the main relay and the fuel filter. It ran well that day. The next day, it started up, push the gas, and it stalled. It will not start, and recently the battery died. It was replaced in December. I think I'm going to take it to the shop for peace of mind.

I have a 1993 Honda Accord LX. I am having a problem with shifting the gears. Regardless if I go from Park to Drive or Reverse, there is a hard shift (you feel it like someone thumping you). And its annoying like that too. Does anyone have any suggestions as to what the problem could be; other than rebuilding the transmission? I appreciate all helpful suggestions.

Has your transmission fluid been changed recently? A drain and fill, with Honda fluid might help.
#1614 of 2107 93 Accord EX Oil Leak behind filter
Jun 07, 2009 (12:25 pm)
My 93 Accord EX is dripping oil on to the exhaust. The leak originates from something between the oil filter and the engine. There is something that looks like a tin can attached to the engine, then the filter attaches to this thing. There is at least one hose attached to the "thing" as well.
This part is not mentioned or shown in my Chilton's guide.
I originally thought the leak came from the filter itself, but changing it made no difference. Next I thought oil was dripping down from the oil sending unit on to this thing, but changing the oil sending unit also made no difference. I finally got under the car with a flashlight, after cleaning all excess oil from the area, and with a light on the area can see the leak originating from between the engine and this attachment. It leaks only when the engine is running.
Does anyone know what this is, if there is a seal between it and the engine, what it is called, and whether it can be replaced?

This is great, thank you! I don't recall seeing the oil cooler in my book, but I'll try to get the o-ring and figure out how the thing comes off.

The bolt or nut, that holds the cooler on is probably under the filter. I doubt you have to use a pipe wrench to take it off. Good luck
