    '92 Accord fuel filter is on the fire wall, though I am not convinced that is the root cause of your problem. Don't rule out a defective ignition switch, very common problem on this vintage Accord. Try jiggling your key in the switch and see if the car dies.

    Thanks, I'll try it. thank you. I'll let you know if it works.

    It worked, I used my spare key without anything attached to it to lessen the wieght on the ignition. It started up without dying. thanks.
