You're likely looking at $600+ in parts alone, and a couple hundred more for labor, add it all up and you're already well over half the car's value. It's your choice to spend all this on your car but personally I wouldn't spend this amount of money on an old Accord.

who did all this diagnosin? A garage? Didn't they give you a quote? All this repairin' doesn't add up- somethin' smells fishy to me- is the car broken? what's the symptoms? is somebody just doin' a lot of guessin?

Cargurus.com reply did the diagnosis. My Honda runs, but it shuts down whenever it feels like it...like when I'm going 70 in the passing lane on the freeway. Not too safe. What say you?

If someone responded with you on repalcing all those parts, they were guesses and not all might not need to be replaced to correct your problem. Like Jamn eluded to, have a local mechanic diagnose your car and get it repaired properly and for a good price.
