I've been a visitor on this site for many years but this is my first post. I have recently bought a Honda Accord CL7, model 2005, imported and registered 2008.
Before this car, I had the 1800 Civic, which was quite a fast car. Compared to that, the acceleration of the Accord seems slower - is that the way its supposed to be?
I discussed this problem with Honda South and with Khan Motors. They both said that it could be the fuel pump. Honda quoted Rs. 48000 for a new fuel pump while Khan Motors quoted Rs. 14,000. I gave the car to Khan Motors - after checking they told me that the fuel pump needed to be serviced and fuel filter was cleaned. This improved the situation slightly, but not much.
Personally, I don't know too much about cars, so I desperately need the advice of accord owners and experts here:
1. Is it normal to have drastically reduced performance when the AC is on (for this particular car)?
2. Could it be the fuel pump needing to be replaced?
3. Would modifying the air intake and the direct exhaust make a difference?
4. Someone suggested that it seems like the AC is putting too much of a load on the car, which can happen if gas is incorrectly filled in the ac. Is this true?
Your help and advice would be greatly appreciated. I am so disappointed in this car because of these problems, specially since I have always wanted this model of Accord. Should I just sell it?
