#1402 of 2254 Re: 1999 LX Manual Coupe Shuts Off [lggkerry]
May 17, 2008 (7:03 am)
I have a 1999 Honda Accord Coupe that is doing the exaxt same thing. For the last year the car has been shutting off while driving, I will wait 2 minutes and it will start back up and be just fine. It will not start right away, I have to wait and then it starts up like nothing ever happened. Sometimes it will do twice in one day or 2 days in a row and then go for about a month or two. Then the cycle repeats itself. I have had the car checked and checked with no help. It never shuts off while its at the shop. Please help if you have had this problem. I can't afford a new car.

Hola from NM -
I have a 1999 Accord Lx sedan w/ a 2.3l vtec and I'm looking to do some bolt on mods. I am wondering how to find what engine tyoe I have (where do I look?). I have to replace the clutch any way so i am planning to have the ACT street heavy duty put in. What about the ACT XACT street lite fly wheel? (any good?). Then an exhaust kit (recommendations?).
Lookin' for help.

#1406 of 2254 Help! Paint and clearcoat are wearing off...
May 27, 2008 (9:28 am)
I have a black 1998 Accord Coupe and the body is in great condition other than this one spot. It's on the roof, near my sunroof. The clearcoat is coming off and the paint is too... It looks awful and when I had it priced at a body shop, they wanted to charge around 600-1000 dollars to fix it. I can't afford that at this time, so is there a cheap alternative that I could maybe do myself? Others don't notice it, but I see it everytime I look at the car. Would it be a huge mistake to just paint over the entire spot? Thanks!

#1408 of 2254 Thank you - cooling fan always on
May 28, 2008 (9:47 pm)
Thank you user777 and mrbill1957 for your guidance [check message #1074]. Through much Trial and Error (more error than trial), discovered it was the cooling fan timer with an intermittent problem. took awhile to locate (and broke one or two tabs ) in the process. Same general location as info you forwarded, but well hidden in newer evolution model. knuckles scrapes common. Delay in response - that's for another forum. Thanks for your insight and guidance.
#1409 of 2254 1999 Honda Accord EX 151,000 shutting off
May 31, 2008 (10:46 am)
My Honda is shutting off as others have reported and I've also taken it to the dealer only to be charged for a diagnosis that didn't find the problem. In summary the dealer could not replicate the problem and thus recommended new dist cap, rotor, wires and plugs. I replaced all these parts. Problem reoccurred. Car shuts down whether traveling at any speed and anywhere. After 4 or 5 turns of the ignition, it will run fine for miles. However, every day it shuts down at some time while I'm driving.
Any help will be greatly appreciated.

I had the same problem with my 99 Accord at 90,000+ miles and tried the dealer and an independent garage. The dealer situation was like yours except I wouldn't leave it. It didn't fail during a regular visit to the dealer and I didn't want to spend $90 for a diagnostic fee. I left the car with the independent garage for a week and it didn't replicate the problem for them. Another time this spring when it cut off about 13 - 15 times in 3 miles, I took it back to the independent garage and they got it to cut off and said it was the ignition switch, but said they didn't they couldn't replace it because the dealer had to reprogram something (the dealer didn't agree when I checked with them).
I finally took it to an auto electric specialist that wasn't quite as close to me. I gave him all the history and symptoms. There was no indication from the engine except you'd get no acceleration when you stepped on the gas and the digital odometer would go blank.
Although he couldn't get it to cut-off, he saw a problem with the electronic portion of the ignition switch and said it should be replaced no matter what. He was very good about asking questions and ruling out the other possibilities like the main relay and the components within the distributor assembly (coil, igniter, etc.). He replaced it and I've put about 800+ miles on it with no failures.
A good auto electric specialist usually doesn't deal with anything but electrical problems and is a lot better that the general automotive facilities.
