#1746 of 2262 Re: 1998 Accord, dying while driving and not starting when hot [savannah1]
Jun 26, 2009 (6:16 am)
Savannah1 I have a 98 Accord 6cyl and had all the same problems. The stalling while driving was getting worse it was happening every day, morning commute as well as evening commute. The interesting part was I had the turn off the car and let it sit for a least a minute or it would not restart. This always made me believe that the problem was electrical like a bad chip and not mechanical like fuel injectors. I also experience problems starting when sitting in the heat all day only to come back later when it cool down and it would start, again a chip that was to hot? This went on for two years, I took it to several mechanics and no one could figure it out. They recommended all the same fixes you have done only I did not do any of them. I have 200,000 miles on my car and recently my transmission had to be rebuilt. The shop plug in a device thru the electrical outlet by your shifter to check and see what computer codes were coming up. Well it turns out not all the code were coming up and one code they had never seen before. so they rebuilt the transmission and re booted the computer volia I have not had a stall in over a month. So my suggestion is maybe to have Honda clear your computer and see what happens, all this could be a code problem and is the cheapest and easiest thing to fix.

#1749 of 2262 Accord SE 2000 - Fix or ditch (transmission)
Jun 28, 2009 (12:24 pm)
My 2000 SE Accord has been great. It has close to 84,000 miles and since 2005, it get less than 5k a year on it. Usually just driven around town, occasionally short high way trips. Unfortunately, this weekend the transmission seems to be shot in the lower gears. It revs, but skips. Taking it in tomorrow. I am really bummed and wondering weather to fix it or buy another car. Other than crappy tran, it is in fantastic condition and very well maintained. I have records & may contact Honda. Do you think a transmission is worth fixing?

Anna...I have a 2000 V6 Accord with approximately 88,000 miles. My car also is in fantastic condition and has been very well maintained. Fortunately, I have not had transmission problems but if I would, I would get the transmission fixed. Because my car is in excellent condition, I feel that is reason enough to have the transmission repaired. If the car had other major problems, then my decision would probably be different. Let me know what you decide. If you decide to get it fixed, I would like to know the price you paid......this would give me an idea of what I might can expect in the future.

I tend to agree. In order to sell the car and get anything for it, you'll need the transmission repaired anyway. I'd try and find a decent price for repair, and consider my options (keep, sell, etc) once I've paid off the transmission fix.

I have a 1999 Honda Accord with 66k miles and both the recall problem were fixed and now the symptoms have reappeared and Honda regional office said that car is not under the warranty and there are no recalls on the ignition switch even though the symptoms are exactly the same as before when they had to replace ignition switch in 2002-2005 period. Local Honda dealer wants $500 to replace the ignition switch and recode and swears that this not part of the previous recalls that had something to do with being able to pull the key out while the car was running and was not interested about the 2nd recall. I have already filed a complain with the Highway Safety and suggest everyone should do the same even if they have the problem fixed by paying from their own pocket.

Thanks for replying. Unfortunatley, it is the transmission, althought it drove perfectly today. The cost for used is $1,000 - $1,500, a new one is about a thousand more. I guess I am thinking it's about 5 new car payments. I am going to complain to Honda though. You never know, or wishful thinking.......
The odd thing is it just happened, no warning at all.
