Doesn't start some days and then randomly shuts off when driving and takes a minute or to start back up.

coupe. I have to feather the gas
pedal to get it start for several
minutes just to get it started I have
no idea and I'm puzzle I do have
little experience with car but seeing
if I could get a second thought
about this before I replace and
waste money away. Please help.
Is the check engine light on? Did you check for any stored computer codes even if the light is not on? There is a service bulletin on this engine which causes all kinds of running and drive-ability problems, but does not always trip the light or a code. If you have the car since new, you should know if this was fixed or not. Anyway, under the EGR valve is a port and an intricate air passage. This becomes clogged with carbon build up. There is a repair kit that you can get on e-bay or at most parts store or at any Honda dealer. It contains a new EGR valve, gasket and a steel sleeve. You must remove the intake plenum to do the upgrade. http://www.driveaccord.net/forums/attachment.php? s=b1e6b609702bec53a4bbe12a8dacd5c9&attachmentid=10340&d=11 99499376
