    Cat stolen!

    I just got mine stolen off a 07 Accord. Terrible.

    Leaking rear caliper

    Unless it is cracked, sounds to me like the seals are failing. Centric kits are junk, try rebuilding with an OEM kit

    Has Anyone Replaced This Power Steering Line Before?

    You don’t need a hoist to remove the rack on the 6th gens. Contrary to many other models of Accords, the 6th gens have racks with their own mounting brackets, rather than being held in place by the subframe. If you feel that the line(s) you are trying to replace are not easily accessible and you...

    what's a good ball joint press?

    While I’m sure you can figure out a way to use a shop press for this, it just isn’t a very practical solution. You definitely do not need to remove the hubs you just need to remove the knuckle assembly. The ideal solution IMO would be using something along the lines of the OTC ball joint...

    Have you checked compression? Any DTCs set?

    P0131 trouble code, rough RPM - with video

    Check the fuel pressure. It should read between 38-46 psi and 47-54 psi with the fuel pressure regulator hose disconnected and clamped. Do you have a K20 swapped engine in your car?

    2002 Accord - Few Engine Questions 2.3 VTEC w/Pics

    I’m about 8 months late but figured this may be useful to anyone else who searches this site. That exposed tube is the vent for the transmission... there is supposed to be a rubber cap on it (yours is missing). While the VTEC solenoid MIGHT be leaking simply due to the age of the car, that...

    Missfire No.1 and 3 Cylinder, Car shakes on idle, Oil on Spark Plug Thread

    If you are considering getting this vehicle fixed, I suggest a leak down test as your next step. Any reputable shop can do it and it will narrow down the cause of your low compression. Given the symptoms, best case scenario would be something on the top end (head gasket, valves, guides, etc)...

    Missfire No.1 and 3 Cylinder, Car shakes on idle, Oil on Spark Plug Thread

    This is not a good standard to abide by. You can have no change if you have a burnt/broken valve, cracked head or block, bad rings, bad guides, the list goes on. If swapping parts is the method someone is going to use, they are better off swapping the coil with a coil from a different cylinder...

    Missfire No.1 and 3 Cylinder, Car shakes on idle, Oil on Spark Plug Thread

    A valve adjustment would only help if the low compression is due to the valves. The fact that you have oil on the threads is not a good sign. While it could be an issue with the valve guides or seals, the most likely cause, IMO would be worn rings. Usually this is diagnosed by either doing a...

    Engine Seized

    Try turning your engine over by hand if you think it is seized. Tow truck drivers aren't mechanics. If you can turn the engine over by hand then it is not seized. If you turn the key and nothing happens, check the main relay as others have mentioned. You can remove the top of the relay to...

    2000 Accord Allows Shift without Break or Key in Ignition

    If it's driveable, at least take it over to your local AutoZone to get it scanned for the CEL code. There is a way to check it with a paper clip but given the fact you managed to short something out by replacing bulbs, I'm a little hesitant to tell you how to do it. Start with getting the code...

    Tapping Sound from Top End After Timing Belt Replacement - Help!

    I know it has been a bit over a month since this was posted but I see nobody has responded. First thing is first, while under the right conditions, the cam gear can be loosened by wrapping the old belt around it to hold the gear... it is not recommended. Ideally, you should use a pulley holder...

    P0401 EGR Code Lingering then Engine Misfire

    To answer your question: Valve clearance out of range means that the valves need to be adjusted. Although the fact that you got the EGR code first, I would recommend you start there and remove the top part of the intake manifold as another poster already suggested. However, at this age, I'm...

    Balancer shaft belt

    The balance shafts are there to equalize vibrations that are an inherent problem with 4 cylinder engines. Are they absolutely necessary? NO Is it a good idea to install the belt? YES While it is not crucial, it smoothens the feel of the car. Some cars such as the new Type Rs do not have...

    Dont hate me, help needed

    You can drop a prelude engine in. In California the engine you put in has to be from a car the same year or newer to pass the referee inspection. Plus the H series engines are going to be an easier conversion than the J on that car since it came with a 4 banger.

    DIY Clutch Replacement (4 cylinder)

    I’m glad to see this is still useful. Putting bolts in bags may seem time consuming but it saves a ton of time in the long run. It is challenging to do without a lift but definitely doable.

    Car sputters then dies intermittently

    2002 4 cylinder MT. The car runs fine most of the time and idle is where it needs to be most of the time as well. At random moments the car starts to sputter and then dies. I'm able to start the car right away and it continues to sputter then die again. It seems to accelerate fine, and after I...
