Engine misfire problems on 1999 Honda Accord
Asked by for the 1999 Honda Accord
The random misfire that we all had had led us to places we aren't supposed to. Only because the engine mounts that these cars have are vacuum assisted (front and rear mounts) which have a vacuum line connected under the mounts to support the HP and help steady idle. Engine mounts are broken from the top hence causing to suck in too much oxygen into the vacuum line hence causing the misfire. Replace the engine mounts and the spark plugs as well since it wasn't burning properly along with the ignition coils and you're car will be brand new. Happened to me 2 times already.

COULD ALSO BE LACK OF MAINT AND THE VTEC CAM POSITION SENSOR SCREENS COULD BE PLUGGED WITH DEBRI
Thanks, do you know where the vtec sileniod,and the cam sensor screens are?
ON VALVE COVER BY TIMING GEAR ARE THE SOLENOIDS, BUT TO CK SCREENS YOU MUST PULL VALVE COVERS. I DON'T REC YOU TRY THIS UNLESS U HAVE DONE IT B4
P1164 is a code for problem with the air/fuel ratio sensor performance. P1259 is a problem with the VTEC oil pressure switch circuit or oil pressure valve circuit. P1164 , at this point could be the sensor , but could also be the PCM. P1259 could be from running low on oil or clogged V-TEC screen. ALSO could be electrical or other internal mechanical problem. .......Are you ALSO getting P0301 and P0304? Does the P1259 clear with scanner and stay off until you try to rev over 4000RPM (when V-TEC kicks in)?
Thanks very much,I will check those things
