Default my daughter just bought a honda accord and?

it's a 1986 with around 86,000 miles on it. so she went to start it and it wouldn't start. it has a new battery. i said that perhaps it needs to be pumped being that old. she did it and it started. was that a good idea? any other ideas on what to do with an older car to start it and keep it running good?

By pumped do you mean the gas pedal? Only lxi and sei models of that generation are fuel injected, dx and lx are carb and will need the pedal pumped to start. Recommendations would be the same as any other car, spark plugs, wires, cap and rotor etc.

I suggest have a tune-up.

1. change oil

2. change oil filter

3. change fuel filter

4. change spark plugs

5. change wires

6. change rotor

7. check ignition coil

8. check fuel pump if its working properly

9. check your fuel pump relay

Do this regularly so that your car will run smoothly and also to prevent it from unexpected problems. Hope this helps!
