Huge win for car owners! All TSBs to be made public. The Center for Auto Safety just made the NHTSA (US Government) make public the full text of all TSBs from now on. They are the same organization that has petitioned the NHTSA & filed lawsuits to protect car owners over exploding gas tanks & other major safety issues. Whenever you drive in your car, you are safer thanks in part to a lot of work over the years by this small but very effective consumer advocacy group.

Please take a moment & say thank you by donating $5 or whatever you can to the Center for Auto Safety.

1996 Honda Accord Owner Comments

problem #1

Aug 102009

Accord EX 4 cyl

  • Automatic transmission
  • 141,673 miles


The problem was more or less ignored until the car started to stall when given throttle after being at a stop light even worse in extreme whether hot or cold. After a night of sitting it starts really rough then for the first 10 minutes of driving it accelerates rough,

it started to stall at stop lights and is becoming inoperable. I am going out today to trouble shoot, I will post results in a week, I am buying a Throttle Position & Manifold Absolute Pressure Sensors (T.P.S & M.A.P) also I will replace fuel filter, air filter, run the standard cleaners through it as well, fuel system and carb cleaner. I already changed spark plug and wires and noticed I had a leaky spark plug tube seals and replaced (it seem'd to make the problem worse :< ) if the problem continues I will send it to a mechanic to look for vacuum leaks, and / or replace the complete intake manifold & whatever else plugs onto the motor...
