ludedude25 Posted June 27, 2006 Share Posted June 27, 2006 First off my dad has a 98 Honda Accord SEi one of the loaded ones with Leather interior, Bose system, etc. My Girlfriend has a 91 Honda Accord LX which is pretty much basic options power windows, locks, etc and the sport shift option on the shifter. Both of these cars when running run as honda's do, smooth and quiet. Now on to the problem. Both of these cars are randomly not starting. Details of this are you hop in the car, turn over the ignition, and the car misfires but just keeps cranking over and doesn't start. shut the key off and try again. After about five minutes of fiddeling with this the car will start and all is well for anywhere up to a few hours later to months later. I absoultly don't understand what is going on. My girlfriend's 91 I have replaced the battery and ignition coil within the dristributor. " ignition coil is only 6-7 months old." I have also just ordered a new TCU "transmission computer" for it as the Sport light is coming on and screwing with the transmission. This is the second TCU that's been put in it in the last 9 years. My dad's car, the 89, has the same exact issue with exception his has no transmission computer problem or as far as I know No TCU. Even tho Both cars are only a couple years apart both have totaly different engines, fuel injection, etc. I have a 92 Prelude S which has the same engine as my girlfriends 91 Accord but mine is a 5 speed. I have never encountered the starting problem as mine will fire up almost instantly. Is this a common accord problem? Any help, troubleshooting tips, reference, etc. would be greatly appreciated.
