1993 Honda Accord Q&A
1993 Honda Accord Question: I have a 1993 honda accord when I drive for 5 min my car turns off
My car turns on great with no engine light but let's say when I get about 2 miles or 3 my car turns off and the engine light comes on there is some times when the engine light comes on but my car doesn't turn off. I have bought a new distributor, new spark plug wires, and also new spark plugs and still the car turns off after 5min can anyone HELP ME.. - Edgar0409
It is either losing spark or losing fuel.. If there is anyway you can install a spark tester on one of the spark plug wires and let the engine run and see if the spark is still present when the engine stalls out.. Also you may want to install a fuel pressure gauge and watch for a fuel pressure drop when the engine dies. These things are notorious for defective distributors.. I see that you replaced the distributor but just because the part is new or reman then dont just assume that it is working properly. Good luck with your vehicle, this may be a challenge.

After it dies you have to wait 10-15 min to start it.if it starts at all the other new ITE it didn't start at all. I'm driving check engine lite goes 2-5 min later it dies.
