02 Accord Shakes While Idling, Problems Accelerating.(Details) Whats wrong?

Joey Scott

Asked by Dec 01, 2015 at 11:53 AM about the 2002 Honda Accord LX

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

Acts like it wants to die when idling
but doesn't. Doesn't want to
accelerate very much at 50-70 mph.
Engine light stays on and
maintenance light blinks. Also
recently my starter went bad too.

1 Answer


The car needs a tune up and more probably. Get the codes read - they are there to tell you what is wrong. Those lights are trying to tell you to fix the car. Don't ignore those lights!
