ya know i own a 1990 accord ex and yes i have almost 300,000 miles on it, if you just keep up on well everything these cars will run for ever, i mean i guess it would have to be a personal choise, but honestly if you look at a new car now days, for a good car your looking at over 20g so yes i would do what it takes to fix the old car, and as for your $200 to replace the window regulator, i dont know where you live but in Spokane washington you can call a place called spalding auto and have them ship you a brand new regulator and everything for under $100, i recently had to do that myself on my driver side window and if worse came to worse if you can still here the motor wanting to move take a can of wd40 and spry the crap out of the regulator it could just be gummed up but just in case you do need the part or any other parts the number is 1-509-924-3300

Yes the same happened to me and my window was all the way down, first i thought that it could be the motor ( those are spendy) so we took some WD40 to the regulator and bamm, some times there just so old that they collect grime so just check and see

I forgot to mention my odometer stopped at 130K when I first bought it, so my engine maybe up there in the 200K or more. It's running fine after a tuneup just a few weeks ago, so I thank God for a reliable car. It's just small things are falling apart like the window motor regulator, oxygen sensor, muffler, etc.

My ABS light stays on when driving. Will it be costly to get that fixed? Is it a brake sensor?

Nothing is wrong with your brakes, so you can rest a little easier. An ABS pump going bad is fairly common on 1990-1997 Accords, and the fix is usually worth more than the car. $1,200-$1,800 from everything I've read here. If you're driving a 15+ year old car, its not worth putting that into it.
#1695 of 2107 1990 Honda Accord-Struggles to accelerate
Sep 22, 2009 (4:47 pm)
I have a 1990 Honda Accord with 200,000+ miles on it. Its ran perfectly, my fathers an auto mechanic and has made sure to keep it in the best condition possible.
When I drive it, sometimes it will struggle to accelerate, sometimes now pushing over 30mph, or ever 10 mph, despite me pushing the pedal completely down. Other times it'll struggle to accelerate, but as I continue pushing it'll suddely jump and go full speed. It happens mostly on hills, but occasionlly on flat surfaces as well. It doesn't happen everytime, however, and the longer you drive it the more likely it is to do it.
My dads changed the spark plugs, fuel filter, and the distributor. The problems still there. Does anyone have any other ideas? Thank you.

right now i have the same problem as of tonight my car is getting a new clutch and man its spendy, but thats besides the point we did a full tune up also that worked for about a day and then i had a mechanic run a code on the car and its saying that the engin temp censor is bad so i fixed that and no more problems so id try looking at any and all censors just because these are old cars

My Accord EX 93 still has this problem and I was told it could be the TCM. I replaced TCM unit with a used Ebay bought part and the problem was resolved temporary. Can it be the engine temp sensor as you say? Is Oxygen sensor the same thing?
Driving at this low speed just feels as if I'm doing major damage to my tranny. Will my tranny go out soon?
#1698 of 2107 Re: 93 Accord EX Oil Leak behind filter [tmcburney]

I just registered today. I dont know if you still have the problem but there is a o ring behind the oil cooler that needs replaced. I just did my 93 accord (F22A6) with a 30mm deep well socket in a 1/2'' drive. I got mine from the local honda dealership for $2.00 I had to use hondabond (adhesive) to hold the o ring in place. You dont have to take the water lines off to do this repair. The nut requires 54ft lbs of torque with a torque wench. I hope this helps.
