It's okay if the flare nut is still slightly in the fuel filter. Over the summer I had the same problem with my 93 accord not starting after sitting in the hot sun. It ran great for 2 years. I tried this several times, but could not keep the car running. So yes, there definitely was a fuel issue, caused by an electrical issue.
This also works with the bolt the sits vertical but because you can use a socket on that one is is a bit easier to remove it. Now, manipulate the filter and bracket past the master cylinder to remove it from the car. It's easier to bust the fuel lines loose if the filter is still mounted to the car. Got them fixed and it has run great ever since. Now since the coil pack is connected to the sparks plugs. Now, put the curved tab on the fuel filter bracket into the slot on the car and put the 10mm bolt in to hold the filter in place.
If the next morning when you remove that towel, the car starts right up when you crank it, your ignitor is failing and can no longer handle the bitter cold temps. I just got done changing the fuel filter on my 1994 Honda Accord, and it is not easy. I had to remove mine a couple of times to straighten the bracket when putting it back together. Of course nobody wants to have to try 15 or 20 times to get their car started in the morning. It started up and no stalling for me ever since. Also when I slow down in traffic or come to a stop. The starting fluid came in handy the first time my car stalled that day.
The first time I was able to pull off the freeway and get the car to start again using some starting fluid. When I came home I started doing some Internet research on the fuel pump and replacing it. The main relay powers the fuel pump, so it is easy to assume the problem would be due to the fuel pump. Go crack open a beer once you get home. If this is your problem, it could definatly affect your mileage. The rest of the way is a snap.
Once that's done, you're finished with the top side of the car. Remove the banjo bolt and put it where you can find it later. Nevertheless, fixing those solder joints definitely solved my starting problems. If I do, at least I can blog about it. You also might want to gather a healthy selection of screw drivers and pliers, and also a hammer and a pry bar. A flare-nut crow's foot is the same thing, only it looks like the closed end part of a wrench with a small portion cut out of it.
Make sure that it's fully seated, and loosen it. My husband made me tow it to Pep Boys. Answer The fuel filter is in the gas tank and not a quick change. The second step is to pop the flare nut fitting loose on the back of the fuel filter. I disconnected two vacuum lines, and undid the mount on the wire harness that runs through this area next to the master cylinder, to make more room to see, and for my hands to work down in this area.
The engine turns over, but when it catches, it chugs for 3 or 4 secs like only 3 cylinders are firing, then quits. Step 2: Remove the fuel pump Remove the fuel lines before unscrewing the nuts holding the fuel pump in place. After it shut off I looked for leaks, there were none. So much for the restarting difficulties. Now, put the curved tab on the fuel filter bracket into the slot on the car and put the 10mm bolt in to hold the filter in place.
The fuel pressure regulator is vacuum operated, so take a look along the fuel delivery rail for a sort of cylindrical apparatus with a vacuum line attached to it. Plus the rpm gauge the needle do not fluctuate erradicly! Thank you sooo much for taking the time to create this page, and for including the link with more details on changing the relay!! Mike, if memory serves me correctly, that Honda has fuel injection. Is there anyway to test and know for sure if its the efi relay or the ignition module? You also might want to gather a healthy selection of screw drivers and pliers, and also a hammer and a pry bar. Most recently, changed ignition module, but problem recurred 3 starts later. There is a banjo bolt on the top, a flare nut fitted metal brake line on the back, and a bracket holding it in place that has two 10mm bolts in it. Push in the tab of the fuel filter to release the holder, then remove the filter from its bracket. How about the the maintenance required light changed from red to green after they finished! Make sure that it's fully seated, and loosen it.
