Default Trouble Starting 92 Honda Accord when weather is hot

Hello,
I'm hoping someone can help shed some light on an issue for me.
Whenever the weather is hot enough and I'm unable to find a spot parked
in the shade I'm unable to start my car if the suns been shining on it
all day. I'll turn the key and it'll keep turning and turning but
it'll never catch and start (occasionally I'll get lucky and it'll
start). Otherwise I'm left to sit and wait until the day cools off.
Most times I'll have someone come pick me up and then after the sun
sets and things cool off I'll go back to my car and it will start right
up. Someone suggested loosening my gas cap incase there was some kind
of pressure build up. I've done that and have had no luck. Any ideas
of where to go next in tracking this down?

Thank you for any help you might be able to provide!

-Jeff

Hi Jeff,

I posted a similar problem this morning and Jim Yanik was kind enough to
respond. It looks like a main relay problem. Did a goggle search and got
this; http://autorepair.about.com/cs/troub.../aa010301a.htm
Just returning the favour. Good luck.

André

Oh my god....I was just about to post the same problem. Maybe I will
too, just because it can't hurt to get as much info as we can.

Thank you so much for all your help. I'll be printing out these
messages and the site Andre/Jeff spoke about. Maybe my mechanic will
give me a medal and a break on this new bill.

tegger.com and mark19 have excellent sites about reworking the main relay.
(Google "mark19" and "main relay",he's got good pictures.)

I was able to replace the part myself yesterday. Boy was the bugger
way up in there. What a pain to get to. I appreciate everyones input.
Now I just have to wait till the weather gets hot again. It's
michigan..... I might have to wait until next summer :-P

Thanks again!

It's very easy,to take the cover off and to resolder.

Jim,

I did take it apart but I haven't soldered a thing in my life. Any
advice? With the new replacement part in I hadn't even thought about
it.

Thank you, Jeff

Well,then you don't have the tools needed to do the job,so it would not
make sense to attempt resoldering.
