My 2000 Accord LX VTEC V6 (125k) suffers the EXACT problem with symptoms PRECISELY as described in the Honda TSB 00-024 "Heat Soak" issue: engine won't start or hold idle after the car is driven to operating temp and then parked w/engine off for ~15mins; runs rough if gas pedal is held or after transmission is quickly shifted into gear; and, MIL will light with resultant misfire codes. Let the car cool down for ~10mins and it'll start and run fine. This problem recurs consistently and is easily induced.
Anecdotes about suggested causes run the gamut:
- ethanol fuel vaporization;
- generally bad quality fuel;
- fuel pressure regulator too small;
- returnless fuel rails;
- problem with main fuel relay solder joints;
- air trapped in coolant;
- overly tight I/E valves;
- EGR issue;
- leaky valve and/or head gaskets;
- bad plugs and/or ignition coils;
- bad coolant temperature sensor;
- blown fan fuse;
...and on and on and on.
Note: the engine ran fine for over a decade before showing the symptoms thus described, making me suspicious this is a genuine "heat soak" issue. I have a hunch some part has simply gone bad, but I simply cannot identify the culprit. Help!
It doesn't matter if it's on flat land or slight incline. Doesn't happen when in 5th gear and up. Clutch has been replaced in the last few years. Does not pop out of gear. I'll just be driving along and it jerks. Jerked the other day and it's getting rougher. Used to be a slight jerk. Friend of mine has looked at it. Says it's not a belt issue, spark plugs, fuel pump. Fluids look fine. Thinks it might be me. But I've been driving manuals for half my life. I know how to use them. Something has to be wrong. I am usually going about 35 MPH on slight incline when it happens the most. Actually, now that I think about it. Twice in the same spot. I was coming to a stop after a big hill, and it acted like it wanted to cut completely off! I remember pushing the clutch in and thinking that still wasn't gonna help. ANY ideas? =/
