Hi guys, I have a 2008 honda accord that sputtered and then shut down on me while driving. Now whenever I turn the key it will start for about a sec or so and then shut down immediately. Any ideas?

Unfortunately, this is model year is one of the worst Accord's ever made. I had a 1995 Honda Accord and it had none of these problems. If you continue to have problems with your car, I would consider investing money into another car. Normally, I would not advise this, but, this is one exception.

Could be a faulty fuel pump or relay or bad fuel filter or other fuel system problem or ignition system electrical problem. Check engine light on? Have car scanned for trouble codes. You can get a reasonably priced code reader at autozone or even harbor freight.
