Asked by May 17, 2017 at 11:25 AM about the 1990 Honda Accord LX

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

My car started and drive fine then my cruse
control kicked off and wouldn't come back
on then shortly after my rpms dropped to 0
while in gear and was still started when I
came to a stop I turned my car off and then
it wouldn't start then about 20 min later it
started and I drove it home.  Well later that
day I was headed to work without using my
cruse control and it did it again rpms
dropped to 0 while still in 5th gear I costed
to a place safe off highway and turned it off
and now it won't start at all.  What's wrong
with it? What would make it do that?

You are losing spark or fuel delivery. Without more information I don't know what is wrong. Maybe a bad fuel pump.

No spark

So I changed my coil my cap and rotor and it still don't have a spark to my plugs. Could something else be wrong?
