It's a pain in the ass to change the fuel pump, you should check to see if you're getting fuel before you bother ripping the tank out.
IM REPLACING THE FUEL PUMP AND SEEING WHERE IT GOES FROM THERE?
COULD IT BE ANYTHING ELSE HELP ITS A 1990 HONDA ACCORD LX 2.2
ANY HELP WOULD BE APPRECIATED

I Have Honda Accord '91 EX 2.0L , and have the same problem like
the most of you claim here.
If the car parks out in the sun it won't start till evening,
If I'm starting it in the morning it start but I cannot leave it parking during
the day outside cause it won't start,
anyhow I replaced anything you could ever think of,
changed Battery, plugs, fuel pump, dist. , plugs cables...etc. etc.
Yesterday I went to a specialist and after telling my story he said -
It's the zilion time I hear this Honda story about this Ignition problem
it's Honda's weakness in Accord and Civic in those years,
So what should I do ???
"You have to replace the Fuel Relay, or shorten it..."
and where could it be this relay ???
"In Accord it will be above your left leg and little bit left - and it's a double relay ,
In the Civic it's under the dash board so it's more complicated to replace "
that all he said , good luck everyone,
btw : I'm going this friday to fix it, let u know the rest after that...

I have a 1990 Honda Accord EX and recently I was out and stopped at a store and when I came out to leave my car would not start. It just turned over but didn't fire. I finally let it sit and my husband and I went back later and the car started. We got home and thought that everything was ok and the car didn't start later that evening. We thought that we would have a mechanic look at it and he told us that it was the distributor (?) We had that repaired and 1 week later the car does the same thing. The car will not start at all now...what could it be? Main relay?? I am not sure what it is....can anyone help out?

I remembered the PFGMI relay controls the fuel and electrical, Honda charged $70.00 to solder it, and said a new module cost $140.00, five years ago, they let me watch them when they soldered it, and you could see a small dark ring in the solder pool at the pin that came through the circuit board, this was where the contact was making and breaking, there couldn't have been more than a few tenthousandths of an inch clearance so the heat would expand it enough to break contact, I had the same problem with my 1991 Cheverolet truck in the windsheild wiper module. Hope everyone gets fixed up OK! David Wood
There is a relay under the dash I belive they call it the FCM they are notorious for bad solder joints my Honda dealer fixed mine. They said they would solder it for 1/2 what a new module cost. Problem is when its hot and the solder expands it loses contact when the car cools, or you slam the door, or kick the tire it makes contact again, it took them about 10 minutes to fix and thats been 5 years ago and it never happened again., Hope this helps you!

I repair electronic equipment, and relays and soldering is familiar territory, so I'd like to try the soldering fix on the main relay. But what's the purpose of the soldering? Am I just resoldering all connections to eliminate cold solder joints? Or am I soldering a jumper to bypass something? Looking at the wiring diagram, I'm half-inclined to solder a jumper from pin 5 to 7 to bypass one of the relays, but is that anything like the fix that's been mentioned here?
