Why is my car stalling?


Asked by Aug 29, 2016 at 12:44 PM about the 1990 Honda Accord EX

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

I have a 1990 honda accord. It has 220,000 miles. I have a MAJOR stalling
problem. Mostly happens when I am stopped but when it is going it stays on.
Check Engine light on & pulled Code 43 - fuel supply system. I have a good
battery and alternator- got them checked about 2 months ago.

I have changed:

-All 4 spark plugs
-fuel filter
-fuel pump
-Ignition coil
-Cleaned Idle Air Control Valve

43 Fuel System Supply Low Fuel Pressure, Vacuum Leaks Make sure fuel pressure is adequate at idle (40-50psi base), check for vacuum leaks
