My sons car is a 96 accord, he recently moved to North Carolina for an externship. For some reason, it’s developed a new problem. After 15 minutes of driving it will stall, and it will not restart. It seems to be if it’s left to sit long enough, it will restart(it does crank, just not turnover). That period of time it needs to sit seems more then 10-15 minutes, but we are not exactly certain. After several hours, it seems to start and run fine. We had it towed to the mechanic, they where not able to reproduce it. It’s not overheating, the temp gauge stays below half. No check engine light is on.
Some vehicle history…
Before he left for NC, i had the mechanic local (PA) replace the ball joints and tie rods, change the timing belt and water pump. that was about a month ago, and the car was fine. About 2 weeks ago we had to have the rack and pinion replaced. There was a break in the internal power stearing hardline. (i think i have that right)
So anyone have any ideas that the mechnic’s may have missed? Maybe i can point them in the right direction… i’d love to get this fixed correctly.
