Having problems with your 1997 Honda Civic ?
The car starts no problem, but then hesitates after severaL MINUTES AND CAR STOPS. MY DAUGHTER HAS ALREADY BEEN DRIVING FOR APPROX 15 MINUTES AND IT JUST SLOWED DOWN TO THE POINT OF STOPPING IN TRAFFIC ON A HIGHWAY IT DOES NOT DO IT EVERYTIME BUT THERE ARE TIMES IT WILL DO IT SEVERAL TIMES A DAY, MY MAIN CONCERN IS SHE PILLS INTO TRAFFIC AND IT HAPPENS, VERY DANGEROUS SITUATION. 2002 CIVIC EX,53,000 MILES
Hondas have an issue with the main relay. Apparently it is a device that is sensitive to temperature. If you check out the other posters for Civic and Accord, you will see quite a few others with similar problems. On the website http://autorepair.about.com/cs/troubleshooting/1/aa010301a.htm the author writes a very informative article about this problem, including how to go about diagnosing it. He writes that the problem can be exaggerated by the simultaneous failure of other parts. Good Luck.
