I have a 1999 Accord EX Sedan- for the past 3 weeks, it has been going dead, whether riding on idle the light. No check engine light come on, the A/c will condition to put out, the radio will play and the hazard lights will turn on, it take 3-5 attempts to crank. Seems as though w/ more electrical items, such as A/C, Navigational device and radio, going once, this help the car to die. I called the local Honda service department but he stated that if the problem can't be duplicated then, they will not be able to repair the car. I have taken it to the local Auto Zone and when place on the machine, it does not give a code. I have had a frayed battery cable replaced, thinking that would repair the problem but no. I hate to trade the car but safety first, it has been great the past 10 years, I have not spent close to $1000.00 in repairs ( excluding tune-ups). Has anyone else had this problem and what did you ascertain to be the problem?
Thank in advance
#1946 of 2107 91 Accord Water Leak
Jun 21, 2010 (7:30 pm)
My sons Accord is leaking water somewhere on the drivers side of the engine. I am not familiar with the water pumps on these cars. I followed the tube behind the engine where it hooks back up by the timing cover. I assume they have the pumped tucked behind there somewhere?? Of coarse it wouldn't leak when I was looking at it.
I saw an earlier post that said its about 5 hours with the a/c unit. I did my daughter timing belt about 8 years ago and that was a pain in the ass. I can't remember if I did the pump along with the belt but I must have. So does the front engine cover along with everything else have to come off to get to the pump???

I personally would try a radiator stop leak product first before you go through all the trouble of taking off the water pump.

I have a 1993 honda accord se with a 1992 accord ex 2.2 f22 a6 swap. The problem is sometimes when i try to start it on a cold start it takes about 3 tries to start then when it starts it idles rough or sputters until it reaches 1500rpms. Also it kicks a cloud of white smoke on start up... Any ideas and the main relay is already been tested, fuel injectors changed im thinking it could be my intake mantifold......anything else

Stop leak may indeed stop a small hose or radiator leak.
Stop leak is ineffective against water pump leaks----so if the stop leak stops the problem, you know at least it wasn't the water pump.

Read this link, scroll up to the section on starting running problems. It may at least give you some ideas. I think it may be your ignition switch, but don't just take my word for it. There may be a recall on the ignition switch, so you might want to check on that too. Good luck

Thanks for the replies. If it is the water pump, where the heck is the weep hole?

If it even has one, it'd be on the underside of course, just behind the pulley.

Scratch my post, no one repled anyway. I disconnected the battery and the light went off, the car is shifting just fine.
