Just happened recently, kinda hard to explain. The car stalls after pressing on the gas, and it happens after stopping everytime. The RPM would go all the way up, usually past 5 then and car would stall for a few seconds without going over 15-20mph then it would suddenly speed up and work normal again. This happens everytime after a stop light, stop sign, and sometimes up the hill. So any solutions? I may have to go to my mechanic on monday and get a maintence check as the light blinks after starting the car.

Havent done anything performance wise to the car except installing a performance chip a month or so ago. Prob have to take that out and see if it'll fix the problem. just had oil change 2 weeks ago as well.

Is it stick? Also when you say stall does it shut off or is it like its not in gear so your just revving instead of moving?

it's automatic, doesn't shut off. yea doesn't feel like im moving at all even though i pressed the gas and the rpm goes past 3-4. it does that for a few seconds and then the car shoots forward and starts working normal again.

i dont know if your vehicle is the same but i had a little problem something like that in my izusu i-280 and my problem was the O2 sensor that had gone bad..not sure if this helps but just giving you a little info

lmk what they tell you lol i thought my car was doing that because i hadn't drove the car in a few days but i doubt thats what it is. do you have a check engine light?

Hold on. My car used to do that too and it was the MAF. Unplugg the MAF and drive it around and see if it does it. It will run kind of funny and run lean, but as long as you give it consistent gas it shouldnt shoot forward with the MAF unplugged. It will set an SES light too if you decide to check it out.

haha will do. it just happened to me today, maybe it's because i keep pressing the gas down too hard everything after a stop light or stop sign. and i also doubt my mangaflow exhaust system has anything to do with it since it's been months since i had it installed. maybe my parents will buy me a new car.

eh, i don't even know where the where the MAF or the O2 sensor even are. but ill do some research and see if they'll fix the problem. thanks

Accords are known to have bad trannies. And this happens every time you are taking off from a stop. Does this happen more when the vehicle is warmed up. Or all the time. Have you taken a peak at the tranny fluid as well.

Also possible for the Mass Air flow sensor to be bad. Check your air filter see how dirty it is.

Note o2 sensor would not do this. A junked O2 would creat missfires. Although you could have enough miss fires to cause a bog down. But Im sure you would know the difference.

Should be near the throttle body. You will see a harness running into it. It has to be somewhere in the tubing or the throttle body.

MAF is located in the Air Intake tube or the intake box.

it did something similar to today sometimes in the past but nothing like today has ever happened. i was driving the car for about an hour when it started doing this. ill check the transmission fluid.

air filter is good, just replaced it not too long ago.

ok, car was off for a while and just did a test drive down the street. the stall was gone, so im guessing it'll probably happen again when it's warm? it still does the shooting forward problem sometimes but i can deal with that.

You didnt say what the trans fluid looked like. Was it nice pink color or dark red. What Im thinking here. Not being there and test driving it myself. Is that you have junky fluid in your trans. Over time clutch packs and other parts of the trans break down sending that into the fluid witch will often cause your valve body to clog up after you get the vechile warmed up.


I would suggest if its this. Is to drian your fluid a couple of times and add some additive in there. Like lucas.

its your tranny. sounds like you replaced a few things you shouldnt have with that automatic...performance chip for what with a automatic??? i think you speed around and what not and its finally catching up to you. at every light you hit the gas and the car rev's up but doesnt go anywhere for a few seconds. tranny. also it slips going up a hill tranny....honda accords=easy on the trannys or=need new tranny....why would you replace the exhaust and chip it with a automatic?

my car doesn't shut off though.

i didn't install the performance chip and the exhaust, they were given to me n installed by a buddy but that was a while ago. but i was driving it around towns today and it didn't give me the same problem as yesterday anymore. ill still take it to my mechanic sometime this week. ill see what he says.

Like I said. Already. What Im thinking and Im sure your mechanic will look into it as well. And he should check to see if any codes are in there as well. Yes you will set codes and not have the check eninge light come on. It depends on how many drive cycles does the code need to set the light on. He would check the tranny fluid and see that it is dark as you said. And suggest either a drain fill witch your accord is very easy to do. Or a complete Flush of the system.

What I suspect is that your tranny fluid has alot of debris in it and is clogging the vavle body up after the vehicle gets up to temp. Driving short distances might not be enough to get it that hot.

I never owned an accord.. but I had a ford taurus and the transmission was slipping...it started doing the same thing and not long after that the tranny just went out....
