I have a 1996 Honda Accord. While you are driving, it will stop automatically, just as if you had turned the key off. Sometimes you can get it started right away again, sometimes not. Any ideas what is happening here?


Check air vent in fuel tank and filler cap

Could be a fuel pump that is going bad. Some times when fuel pumps go bad they cavitate and pump not just gas but also air. If you get too much air in the line and not enough gas the car won't start. Have a mechanic check your fuel line pressure.

The clicking and popping sound like a problem with the CV joints. The best repair for this is to replace the CV half-shafts. The brake noise may or may not be related to this issue. If the noise is coming from the front, it could be that you need new brake pads, or that the rotors need to be resurfaced, or the brakes may need some other adjustment. If the noise is coming from the rear, you may need new brake shoes, or the drums need to be resurfaced, or there could be another issue. Have the brakes checked out when the CV axles are replaced.

If you need more help with these issues or if you have any more questions just let me know.

I think you answered you own question, when you said "it almost seems that the battery is dying," Drive it (while you can) to a parts store and get a FREE check of your charging system. They can tell you if it's the battery-low charge, which may indicate the alternator is bad- or a battery that is ready to retire, (and it also could be the starter, but I'm betting it's the battery). Let me know what you find.

I had the same problem on my 1999 Honda Accord 4 cyl. It was the ignition switch. I received a letter from Honda regarding a recall on the ignition switch and had it replaced. 3 years after replacement it would turn off again & this time I purchased part from eBaby & replaced it myself. It hasn’t stalled since.

tumbler's no good. Fixed the same problem on 1999 alero last week.
