    Suggestions/Thoughts/Ideas?

    Alright, this isn't an LSX equipped vehicle but I assume someone on here has the knowledge and can maybe give me
    an idea of what to check/look at.

    The car is an '02 Honda Accord 4 banger. I went out to start it this morning to head to work but the car had other plans. It will start/turn over but won't stay running. As soon as it turns over, it will run for maybe a second or two but then dies. It acts like its out of gas but it's got a quarter of a tank so that can't be it. I'm thinking it's fuel related based on what it's doing. I'm still at work so I haven't had a chance to even take a look at anything on it yet until I get home. Because it will turn over, I assumed its safe to say its not the starter, battery, or alternator. Is that a correct assumption? All the fluids are good and upto the proper fill level. Any ideas of what the culprit might be, or what to look for would be appreciated?
    Thanks in advance.

    Sounds like a fuel pump or even a fuel filter that is clogged.

    Can you check how much pressure you're getting at the fuel rail?

    Whens last time the filter has been change?

    agreed.....as good a place as any to start. I know basically jack shit about Honda's as I've been lucky enough to have never been forced to own one. Not sure if they have a theft system in them like vats which might be something to look at if they do. I would start by checking fuel pressure and if you have miles on the filter plan on swapping that out either way.

    I have a 91 accord that does the same thing. I took out the plugs and three of the four were covered in oil...now I have the cylinder head off and looking to rebuild and redo the head gasket.....worst thing is while I work on the accord in my garage, my TA sleeps in the driveway...

    I agree with Scott. Another thing to keep in mind, and I don't know if Honda's have them, is the crankshaft position sensor. Just had a friends Saturn doing the exact same thing. After verifying no fuel issues, we traced the problem to a faulty CPS. Just thought I'd throw that out there.
