      It seems that you may be detailing a collapsed upper right motor mount. If you can get this vibration to go away intermittently as you sit still in drive and power brake it or in reverse power brake it then that would confirm the bad mount. Look visually at the upper right mount and see if two parts of the mount are just slightly touching each other where these two parts should have a gap.

      No, but it may affect your local police. Just kidding, but no. There's possibly some effect on the engine
      performance that's about all. The rest of the engine should be re-tuned to get the best of increased
      exhaust flow.

    My Accord will start, but as soon as I release the ignition from "start", it will die.
    My car has 185,000 miles. Problems occur sporadically. Problem has been going on for a month and is getting more frequent. Sometimes while driving the engine will die and I will have to put it in neutral and start it. Last night I had to hold the ignition to "start" ...

      Ignition starter switch directs current from the fuse panel to other systems in the vehicle
      When not replaced, vehicle may experience no-start, intermittent shut down and/or current will not flow to all systems. Replace it as necessary.

    Where can I find the vacuum diagram for this car.
    I have a vacuum line hanging behind the engine and can't find where it attaches, it might have been cut. We just got the car so we have no history.

      Try this link.
      http://www.autozone.com/.../...rGuideContent.jsp

      If the link doesn't work, you can go to the autozone web site, register your vehicle, it's free. Click on vehicle repair guides. You can probably type "vacuum" in the parts search box and hit go. Should be link on right side part way down, it may say, 98--2000, click on it.

      Check the vehicle for fault codes to see if there are any sensors were involved to the malfunction of the engine.

      1.Local auto parts stores such as Autozone ( not in California) or Advance Auto parts or Pep Boys will scan and retrieve any diagnostic trouble codes ( dtc ) stored in the powertrain control module for free of charge..

      2. Amazon.com has the code reader for less than $23.09 dollars + free shipping
      Autel MaxiScan MS309 CAN Diagnostic Scan Tool for OBDII Vehicles

      3.Re-post the dtc's in here " answer question " for further assistance.

      Note: we need the dtc's to identify the sensor, there are a dozen different ELECTRONIC sensors to operate the car.

      Visit this site and see all the different sensor definitions.

      Powertrain Control Module (PCM)
      Throttle Position (TP) sensor
      Mass Air Flow (MAF) sensor
      Intake Air Temperature (IAT) sensor
      Idle Air Control (IAC) valve
      Engine Coolant Temperature (ECT)
      Heated Oxygen Sensor (HO2S)
      Camshaft Position (CMP) sensor
      Knock Sensor (KS)
      Vehicle Speed Sensor (VSS)
      Crankshaft Position (CKP) sensor

    I'm not getting power to my starter; what's wrong?
    Car no longer cranks/starts, even with boost from another vehicle. We've determined the battery and battery connectors are fine, but we ran a trouble light to the starter wire and found it wasn't getting power. Check engine light isn't on. How do I fix this?
