#681 of 1859 95 Honda Accord Shakes in 5th gear
Feb 16, 2007 (5:44 am)
I don't know too much about cars, so if anybody could give me some help, it would be greatly appreciated. I drive a 1995 Honda Accord EX. and just recently sicne we had that big (only) snowstorm in New England the other day, my engine and the steering wheel seems to be shaking once I put the car in 5th gear. I was just wondering, could it be the cold weather, is this a common problem, is it not a big deal, or should I get it checked out? Please help. Thank you.

check to see if a chunk of ice and snow has grafted itself onto one of the wheels.
if people drive through mud, same issue.
some sticks: significant enough amount to throw wheel balancing off and car shakes at certain speed range.
hopefully, that is your problem.
#683 of 1859 97 Accord EX V6 with bad fuel mileage
Feb 16, 2007 (3:35 pm)
I recently inherited my moms 97 accord ex v6 and after driving it for a few weeks it is getting me around 23 miles per gallon on gas. I am not very happy with this because i am used to the 29 miles per gallon i used to get in my 96 accord lx v6. I am planning on getting the tune up per the ext. warrantee that honda offers but wanted to ask if anyone has any other ideas why such a big difference in these 2 cars. My parents bought this car new and i have all the service records on it. It currently has around 94k on it my 96 accord has around 139k. Anyway if i need to post more info here just let me know. Thanks for any help.

I can't figure out why they would be so different, assuming conditions are the same for both. Do what you talked about, get a tune up. New spark plugs, air filter, etc... should help matters a lot, especially if these havent been done in a long time. I went from 22 MPG to 24 MPG years ago after getting new spark plugs and an air filter change after over 60,000 miles since the previous ones were fixed. Not sure that your mileage will go up 6 MPG (especially since the sticker on this car tops out at 26 MPG - 23 MPG sounds pretty good in mixed driving conditions, especially in our deep, cold, winter.

#686 of 1859 96 Honda Accord Ex RPM Problem...
Feb 18, 2007 (5:27 pm)
I've had my used honda for about 8 months now, and I've already done so many things for it. I had to repair a couple of oil leaks and I had to get a new muffler. But now I seem to have a bigger problem.
I drive a 1996 Honda Accord EX V6
When I drive for about thirty minutes, going the same speed, my RPM meter starts going up and down. It's orginally at 2 and then it shoots down to 1 and then finally, when it reaches 0 it jerks kinda bad. It freaks me out a little. I've asked soooo many people about this and they have given me a few answers. They think it's my ignition coil. But it don't think so. I need help! I have no knowledge about cars WHATSOEVER!! Please help.

Read this link, and see if any of this sounds familiar to your problem. good luck
Two questions, does the cruise control work? and is the Check Engine Light on?

HEY, I HAVE SOME GOOD NEWS FOR YA....I hope.....
If you have less than 150,000 miles on the odometer, you're probably eligible for the famous Accord SPECIAL RECALL... Do a search here about service bulletin 98-081. Your car is probably covered by this special recall. Your problem is probably the Speed Sensor and your Distributor Cap. And you should get it fixed FOR FREE!...
Take your car to the nearest Honda dealership and tell them to check about this special service bulletin 98-081... You may be able to get a PDF copy of this bulletin by doing some Google search.
Not only this, you're also elligible for a FREE tune up at 75,000 and 150,000 miles.

No, my check engine light isn't on and my cruise control does work. It's so weird. I've even asked a honda mechanic in my town and he said it might be my spark plugs. But I got new ones, but they aren't honda quality. I think I should check to see if my cap and my speed sensor are broken. I would do the recall but I have 160,000 miles. So yea, it sucks. Thanks for your HELP!

Since your cruise control works, I suspect the igniter, or something distributor related. If it happens again, check for spark, and fuel.
Another thing you may want to check is, if your car was included in the ignition switch recall. When the ignition switch is bad, the engine will seemingly start, then die as soon as you release the key.
