What could be wrong with my car?
I have a 1996 Honda accord. My car starts
and run but after so long it cuts off but will
start RIGHT back up with no hesitation. I
bought a brand new hose for the vacuum
line because one came a loose then it
stopped for one day and started back. Then
I bought a brand new MAP sensor and I'm
still having the same problem. What could it
be? Help please?
Is the CEL on?
Yes it is on
Someone said it could be my distributor could that be possible
Go to a parts store and have them put the code reader on the car and write down any/all codes given then write back with the info.
The only 2 codes that was giving was code p0106 and p0441
Since you already did the MAP Sensor that should take care of the P0106 code. Did you clear the code after you replaced the sensor and let the ECU re-learn yet? You always have to do the repairs starting with the first code & repair, then clear the codes from the memory and drive the car a bit to re-learn then check for now codes if no improvements are noticed. Trouble Code: P0441 EVAP System Incorrect Purge Flow Detected Possible Causes: Charcoal canister is clogged, loaded with fuel or with moisture Fuel tank over-fill check valve cracked or damaged Fuel tank seal leaking, fuel tank cracked or damaged/leaking Fuel vapor hoses/tubes blocked or restricted, or fuel vapor control valve tube or fuel vapor vent valve assembly blocked Vacuum hose or tubing cracked, damaged or disconnected Vapor pressure sensor is damaged or has failed VSV circuit for the canister purge, VSV for the CCV or the VSV for the pressure switching valve is open or shorted to ground VSV for the vapor pressure sensor circuit is open or shorted to ground, or the vapor pressure sensor is damaged or has failed
