The check engine light comes on,and flashes. Generating a p0303 misfire code. The spark plug on that particular cylinder is oil fouled,causing the misfire. The first time this happened was in the middle of north dakota driving at highway speeds on the interstate last winter. The spark plugs were changed by me on the side of the road. Cylinder three spark plug was very heavily oil fouled. After replacement of the spark plugs,the misfire did not continue at that point,check engine light went out. No further action was taken. That happened on November 30th 2016. The most recent event happened April 17th. The car was running rough again upon startup,and check engine light flashing. Brought the car to my mechanic who inspected,and found code p0303 cylinder misfire. #3 plug very saturated with oil, and fouled. Please see attachment for further information.

Since December, 2016 the engine has been using excessive oil. I have regularly scheduled oil changes every 5,000 miles (synthetic). On 7/13/17 the oil was changed but I was told that the engine oil was very low. It was changed again on 12/21/17 with less than 4,000 miles since the last change. Again the check engine light was on. This problem is definitely getting worse.
For the second time in less than 2 years a spark plug blew into the engine while attempting to drive, we were going no more than 50mph when the check engine light came on and the car completely just shut down. The vehicle would not cut on . Have taken it to a nearby Honda dealership and have been informed that the spark plug flew out of place and the engine will need to be replaced. Unfortunately this is the second incident where this has happened. Last year in 2016 the exact same thing happened.

Accord v6 with variable cylinder management (vcm). At exactly 65,000 miles, in expressway rush hour traffic, immediate catastrophic power loss and check engine light comes on. Tow to Honda dealer. Dealer receipt shows code p3400 found and dealer replaced rear oil pressure sensor. Car owner suggests that an oil change might be in order due to event. Once home, owner finds oil overfilled. This vehicle is part of class action engine misfire settlement. Dealer did not report any other error codes, that is, those that are covered under the settlement. American Honda has declined the owner's request to have the engine performance reviewed with the vehicle owner and an american Honda regional service manager present.
I called Honda customer to report a problem due to constant check engine lights and to get my car checked with a recall notice . They told me I will charged to see whether my is eligible for the recall notice and told my check engine problem cannot be checked out since my mfg warranty expired since it is only good for 6 yrs from the year of manufactured date and not the sold date . I bought my car 2011 so my warranty is still valid , but for whatever reason they are going by mfg date and sold date.
Check engine light intermittently on and off from 02/2016 (codes p1009 camshaft position and p0341 camshaft position a circuit each time). Car stalled a number of times when running stationary and in motion in August 2016. Honda dealer on August 9 found camshaft timing chain stretched and in need of replacement. Car had 41,059 miles on odometer and power train warranty of 60,000 miles or 5 years. Repair cost $1,562. 90. Honda refused any compensation even though mileage well under 60,000 miles and the vehicle was in excellent working order including engine oil level. Repair should have been covered as an exception under warranty. Consumer reports magazine shows frequency of repair very poor for major engine problems for 2008 Honda Accord(obviously unknown at time of purchase 12/2007). Major engine problems not cited for Honda Accords from 2005 through 2015 in consumer reports magazine.

Check engine light came on while driving, cylinder was misfiring. Replaced spark plug. This has happened twice about a little over a year apart in different cylinders.
My 2010 Honda Accord has had a check engine light for a p0420 code at 110k miles. For someone that knows something about cars, a catalytic converter should not be going out this soon. As I read numerous forums and articles online, many others have reported the same issues with their 8th generation Accord, yet Honda has not been told to issue a recall. Obviously these converters were poorly made and it is going to cost nearly 1000$ to fix this.
Tl- the contact owns a 2015 Honda Accord. The contact stated that while driving at 80 mph, when the vehicle starting shaking. The contact stated that the vehicle started to decelerate rapidly to 40 mph. The contact stated that the check engine light illuminated at that time and the vehicle stalled. The vehicle was towed to the dealer where the failure could not be duplicated. The vehicle was not repaired. The manufacturer was made aware of the failure. The failure mileage was 2,200. Wh.
I have a Honda Accord v6 2005 model car and maintenance done as per manuals. I am now getting jerks while accelerating or after starting and putting car in reverse gear. The check engine light turned on now. I did a code scan and getting code p0741. This is an issue with transmission power. I did some google and found that Honda had this manufacturing defect in this model and lot of car were recalled for this reason. I found NHTSA campaign id number : 11v395000 addressing similar problem and as of 23rd September 2014, 1. 5 million (1512107) vehicles has been recalled for similar issue. The Honda recall number is r89 and the recall was placed on August 27th 2011, for Honda Accords 2005-2010 for the transmission. This issue is transmission power is not working as expected and it jerks while changing gear or speed. This is dangerous from driving safety point of view. I need help by the NHTSA as I strongly feel that my case is genuine and with reference to NHTSA campaign id number : 11v395000, my vehicle should be considered for this recall by american Honda. On that note, I do hope to receive a resolution response , in a timely manner, from your executive team or someone else that is in a position to do the right thing.

Went for lunch, and parked my car on the street. After finishing lunch, about half an hour later, got into the car and proceeded to start it. Everything worked, but the car immediately shut off (radio and ac would stay on however). Tried again, but the same thing happened. Followed by a check engine light warning, and tire pressure warning. Took key out of ignition, waited a minute, before trying again. This time, turned off radio and ac. Car immediately shut off still. Tried 2-3 more times, and car finally started, all with a total of 4 warning lights. Check engine, tire pressure, power steering, and another one I cannot recall. Took it the dealer immediately, and waited 2-4hrs for them to tell me, the throttle body needs replacing. They advised it wouldn't be safe for me to drive the car home, so they gave me a free rental until it can be fixed.

Used engine keeps failing also bad mechanics in the area including Honda dealership over priced features for repairs. Always idling too high with no check engine light or proper emissions explaining oil light reasons?.
I recently purchased the 2003 Honda Accord for travel. After purchasing the vehicle I noticed that the check engine light was on. The mechanic told me that there was a torque converter that needed to be replaced. After doing additional research I found that other Honda owners had this same issue. My car rumbles when driving through residential areas. When I try to enter my VIN numer in to see if my car is eligible it won't come up, but I'm definitely experiencing the transmission slipping in specific gears.

On 12/22/2014, my 2008 Honda Accord lx (which has 98,300 miles on it) was towed into my local Honda dealer. The reason for my having it towed into my local dealer was due to the fact that my engine failed while driving on a residential street drive two miles from my home. There was absolutely no indication whatsoever that my engine would fail as the check engine light did not go on, there was no oil light illuminated, etc. Thus I was shocked when I was driving and tried to give the car some gas and the car did not accelerate ¿ thus I rolled to the side of the road and contacted a towing company. The service representative contacted me via phone and let me know that there was no compression in cylinder 2 and that I likely needed a new engine. The initial estimate would be $6,000 for a car with a blue book value of $6,500 (dealer trade in. ) I have all service records and faithfully serviced my vehicle at the Honda dealership. The service rep also explained that I was low on oil and I reviewed my receipts to determine that I changed my oil 2600 miles earlier. I am hoping that Honda will provide goodwill to repair the vehicle as a 6 year old vehicle with 98000 miles on it should not need a new engine.
Accelerating from a stop sign and check engine light came on, vehicle began to idle rough and shudder. Limped to a auto parts store and diagnosis was cylinder #2 misfire. I was returning home from vacation and contacted dealership service dept where car was purchased from. Was informed that Honda issued a TSB for fouled plugs. Drove 290 miles home as all dealerships were closed.
The car sporadically turns off while driving. Before the car shuts off sometimes the dashboard lights will flicker. The check engine light will sometimes go on for a day or two and then turn off. The car was checked out by three nys mechanics who all drove the car at length only to determine that nothing was wrong. One of the mechanics was from a Honda dealership.
The contact owns a 2009 Honda Accord. The contact stated that while driving at various speeds the abs/vsa and the check engine warning lights illuminated. In addition, the vehicle unintended accelerated. The vehicle was taken to the dealer, who diagnosed that the vsa system and the timing change needed to be repaired. The vehicle was not repaired. The manufacturer was not notified of the failure. The failure mileage was 61,000. Djr.
As my vehicle was accelerating onto a highway on-ramp, I lost almost all power to my vehicle, and it became more difficult to steer. The check engine light came on, the electric power steering light came on, the traction control light came on, and my tire warning light started flashing. Was barely able to make it into the emergency lane, and probably would have been rear-ended had a car been following close behind. Once in the emergency lane, a burning odor could be smelled by all 4 passengers in the car. There was nothing wrong with my tires. Car had to be towed to dealership for repairs which are pending. This vehicle has the new "cvt" transmission, and I suspect this may be part of the problem. This should not be happening in a brand new car, this is a safety issue for sure.
I purchased a used 2003 Honda Accord in April 2011. It now has 132, 000 miles on it. This week I was driving on the interstate when my "d" drive on my hear start flashing in my car rpm started revving up & my check engine light came on. So I put my emergency flashes on to get the shoulder of the expressway my car. My car wouldn't drive anymore in the d drive shift to make it home safely I had to drive my car in d3 all the way home. My mechanic is now saying I need a new transmission which will cost me $2500 I don't have. I've driven Honda Accord's all my life this is the first Honda that I've had a major issue with.
As I pushed down on gas the car hesitated to go and my check engine light pops on. I took my car to advanced auto parts to check it and it read transmission torque converter.

The car suddenly would not accelerate and change into the 3rd gear while driving on a busy road. Had the car towed to an authorized mechanic who diagnosed the issue as transmission failure with the 3rd gear. This is the same issue that caused Honda to issue a recall for their 2003 v6 Accord in 2004. A month prior, on two separate occasions, I was driving between 40mph-45mph when all of a sudden the car would not accelerate and slowed down, while I simultaneously engaged the accelerator. During both incidences the tcs and check engine lights immediately came on. After pulling over and turning the car off and on, the lights did not remain on. This is a very dangerous car with thousands of complaints already noted for the same issue. Honda needs to recall this dangerous car.
Check engine light went on and off a few times, took it to autocheck and found a code. Took it to dealer, they could not locate the code and claimed there is no issue they can find, come back when it happens again. Few weeks later, the check engine light came again in the evening, and now with other problems, the whole electric system including lights, radio etc started dancing on and off, abs light came on and off. Happened for a few minutes and then everything went smooth. I took the car back to dealership and they claim the code p0685 was found and there was a software update for the pcm and they applied that update. I asked why was there no intimation about it and the response was that it was not considered as one of the critical updates. With the experience I had, the way things were happening in that 2-3 minutes of electric system dance, anything could have gone wrong with the car. There should be a recall notice sent for this update.

The vehicle was taken to the dealer for inspection and they stated that they could not diagnose the cause of failure. The vehicle was not repaired. The manufacturer was not notified. The failure mileage was 34,338. Ap.
