You forgot one thing (that I noticed)
V6 coupe's have 16's rims (205/60/16)
FYI: Ordering ignition parts
The F23A1/4 engines require the Hitachi distributor cap and rotor system. The cap has flat sides. If they give you a cap with a round side on it...it's WRONG. That cap with rounded sides is for the non-VTEC F23A5.
The correct rotor for the F23A1/4 is more oval shaped, while the A5 piece is round like a circle. You can't switch them. The distributor and rotor have a "D" shape where the rotor slides onto the distributor. The A1/4's "D" is 180 degrees opposite from the A5.
Reason I say this...some parts stores will ask you "VTEC or non-VTEC?" and then give you the wrong part. Twice have I gotten non-VTEC parts for my F23A1...cap/rotor and accessory belts. Check the parts out before you leave the store to save hassles later
answered alot of questions. props
thats something that i wanted to see for a very long time...
wow very very helpful. 1 thing though umm i use 5w30 not 5w20 according to my oil cap & manual.
wow i learned alot from this!
As for the Oil For 4Cyl Accords 98-02
Its 5W-30 for us in Canada.
+1...I've been using 5W-30 oil for a while. I'm due for an oil change, should I get 5W-20? Will it make a difference?
better mpg, but less protection as the oil will be less thick..
