#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.

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?

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.

I took my car to a dealership and they said it was the oxygen sensor and the spark plugs. I had my dad change them and he says my cars fixed. I havent driven it personally so Im not certain but it seems to have fixed my problem for the moment

#1701 of 2107 Honda jerk at 60
Oct 03, 2009 (6:32 pm)
When driving my car at 60 miles or better, you let the gas go and the car jurks. I do not know why. Also the car can go down to the first line of the rpm gauge when shifting from park to another gear. Are these events tied together or totally separate? The car has great power on the road and highway, but it feels as though it always starts to miss around 1500 rpms. Furthmore, the jurk only happens at 60 or greater when the gas is released. (the jurk happens as soon as the gas is released at 60 or greater.) Have a 93 honda accord dx
#1702 of 2107 fuel guage faulty?
Oct 04, 2009 (7:23 am)
Recently I added about a quarter tank of gas to my empty tank and whiling driving I noticed my fuel guage needle would rise to over half the tank. The empty light goes on several times. I changed the fuel pump, gas filter changed two years ago. Is it a fuel pressure thing? What can cause this and how can I regain a true reading from here on?
#1703 of 2107 Power Window- passenger side wont work.

Yesterday my passenger side power window decides not to work. It worked fine two days ago. I checked fuses under hood and they look ok. Are there other fuses I need to look for? Please help.
#1704 of 2107 Stop light bulb- cyclop went out.
Oct 08, 2009 (8:19 pm)
I went and tried new bulbs (correct ones) for my Cyclop stop light and it doesn't work.
All my other lights work fine. Does the stop lights work on fuses?
