2008 Honda Accord sputters and stops


Asked by May 21, 2016 at 07:20 PM about the 2008 Honda Accord EX-L

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

After starting, my card sputters and stops.  It started about 2 weeks ago and then stopped after 3 or 4 minutes. I thought maybe it was water in the gas. Today, it will start but not remain running. Sputters and stops. I've tried re-starting it over and over again, and it will start but always stops. What could be wrong?

1 Answer


1st, have the car checked for computer codes, even if the trouble light is not lit up. Sounds like it's starving for fuel or has a bad sensor or clog someplace in the system, and not all problems will set of the check engine light. Post back if you find any codes and we can go from there.
