Q: stalling out on 1992 Honda Accord

The timing belt, water pump, radiator, ecg ports, ignition, carburator, head gasket have all been replaced. Yet my car will stall when backing out of a parking spot or my driveway. It also happens if I am at a long light.

I'm not an expert on this, but I had a car that had the same exact problem. I brought it to my mechanic because it was stalling out once the engine got warm, stopped at lights, etc.

He told me my throttle body and fuel injectors were clogged. It was affected more when the car heated up due to normal expansion of metal and the clog blocked the flow of fuel.

Once he cleaned the injectors and throttle body my car was no longer stalling. Hope that helps you out.
