Where C/D lost me was when they said: "the 1994 - 1997 fifth-gen is a particularly warm memory". WRONG!!! It may be a warm memory to the author (Aaron Robinson), but the 1990-1993 is clearly the best looking, most iconic Accord ever produced. See pics here: http://www.hondanews.com/channels/honda-automobiles/archive/1990/photos?year=199- - 0 After that, all Honda could do is hope to continue to achieve perfection. I loved the aluminum-platter rims on the EX model ... Read More
After reading everyone's discussions and asking some questions of my own, I figured I'd chip in on my own experiences. I was shopping in the Austin/San Antonio/Round Rock areas, and I ended up buying a red ext./black int. automatic Accord LX-S coupe for $21,200 pre-TTL; after a $3,000 "trade-in" (Drive Clean Across Texas voucher program) and TTL, it came out to $19,550. The best offer I got in Austin/Round Rock was ... Read More
You can bone up on YouTube on how to do this. (SEE LINK BELOW) Remember you get only good clear shot to do it right, but if you take your time you should be able to extract it. These valve cover bolts are pretty small--they do not need much tightening---the gasket seals the cover, not the tightness of the bolt. These can easily be "tight enough" using a 1/4" drive socket ... Read More
yes thats it. thank you. much appreciated
You mean a valve cover bolt? Are you saying the valve cover bolt snapped off and the remaining stem is in the cylinder head? In that case you have to drill it out in such a way to get an extractor tool in the broken stud.
Working on my friends honda and tightening down one of the nuts that hold the head cover to the head and the bolt snapped at the top so now i cant get a proper seal. Am i able to replace just that bold somehow or am i screwed and need a whole new head? and if i can replace just the bold. what is that bold called?
Back in October of last year, I paid $4400 for my 1993 Honda Accord. She was brillantly maintained, and garage kept if I had to guess. Not a bit of rust on the body anywhere, extremely clean engine, recent oil change, new serpentine. Interior shows almost no wear at all, looks like brand new. I do think $4400 was a bit much, I think I should've paid about $3400. Alas, I ... Read More

I had a 93 with automatic and several years ago there was a slow leak under the transmission. At least 2 mechanics wanted to replace the transmission lines, which included the radiator. Finally, went to the guy who is my current mechanic and he suggested replacing the rubber (probably synthetic) tube connections as they might be 'weaping'. He did. No problem since. Not sure if this might apply in your case, ... Read More

Thank you sir, they charged me $1546, for diagnose the cooling system itself $240, replaced the fan sensor switch, the thermostat and the idle control valve including labor and tax.

I was not satisfied and amazed that after spending $1600 they told me I need the head gasket replacement and the transmission; it is more than ... Read More
Well the dealer could easily perform a cooling system pressure test to determine if the head gasket is bad---you don't have to "guess" about a head gasket. I presume you made a type and you meant that you were charged $160, not $1600 for an AIC valve? Checking the cooling system was a good idea, since air blockage could cause false readings on the temp. gauge. It's possible that the dealer ... Read More

That I can remember Honda didnt offer a factory option for this but dealers used aftermarket companies for that.

Just to chime in that some dealers do this. My first Accord (1993) I bought with the understanding they were putting in the CD changer and alarm. Come delivery day, it had a Sony aftermarket changer, and an Automate alarm - same price as the Honda ones, of course. Raised a stink, and they put in the Honda changer with the special trunk mount and the controls that replaced a cubby ... Read More

I think people make trade-offs. The difference between best in class and worst in class is statistically significant but not actually significant. If a Toyota needs to go to the dealer once every 5 years, and the VW needs to go every 2 or 3 years, its worth it to me to have a more fun to drive car. Considering most Accord owners also can go 5 years without seeing a ... Read More

My suggestion would be to look up the parts you need at one of the 2 bigger muffler manufacturers. www.maremont.com or www.walkerexhaust.com Both will have online catalogs showing the parts you need.

Thank you to everyone who offered advice. In case anyone is interested, we did find the solution: My mechanic couldn't figure out why what he had done had not fixed the problem, so he retraced his steps. It tuns out that the brand new thermostat he had installed had come faulty from the factory. He then replaced the new thermostat with a second new thermostat and all became good once again. ...

With a car of this mileage, especially one that has been overheating recently, the mechanic should have immediately tested for a bad head gasket before chasing other issues. If the heater was working, the thermostat was working; if the fans were working, then no need to fix them at this point. The radiator can be flow tested or at least inspected. the radiator was the best of his guesses actually but ... Read More
My mechanic (a man I would trust with my life) Maybe you can trust him with your life, but I would not trust him with my car, and unlimited money to fix it. It seems he is just throwing parts at the problem, and not doing any diagnostic work. Guessing which part is the problem can become very expensive, when you keep guessing the wrong part. Maybe the radiator was bad, ... Read More
No, actually at this point I'd be checking for a blown headgasket on the engine.
Your mechanic has replaced a ton of things and not solved your problem. Before I spent any more money on this problem, I would ask him if he bled the cooling system (most cars do not have the two bleeders that those Accords have) - if he is not used to working on Accords, then he might not normally do it. I really question the need for a radiator replacement. Personally, ... Read More
Thanks for the reply. When my mechanic (a man I would trust with my life) replaced the radiator last week, he put in a new thermostat at the time. That didn't solve the problem though. At the time, he noticed that the passenger side radiator fan was very loud. The bearings were going bad. He suggested that we replace it then, but didn't have one to put in. Then two days ...

Thanks for the reply. My mechanic (a man I would trust with my life) replaced the radiator. I did not see him do it, but I have every reason to believe he did it correctly.

At the time that he replaced the radiator and thermostat, he noticed that the passenger side ... Read More

About two weeks ago, my '93 Accord DX (222,000 miles) started overheating. I have stopped using the air conditioner because it brings the needle up very quickly.

This might sound silly but I have a 1993 honda accord ex and when I drive it it's not a smooth shift no lights are flashing for the transmission but my question is does your Honda do it?
Some 1990-1993 Honda Accords are known to have this problem. I had a problem with the driver side door not opening and took it to a Honda Dealer, he drilled out the lock and put in a new one. The labor cost was a killer and cost me $400+.

Hi John, Same exact problem with my Accord 93. I'm no mechanic so I haven't checked the fuel pressure regulator or injectors. I read here it can be the ECU or the Oxygen sensor. Let me know if you resolved it and how. I don't have the $$$ now to fix mine. cybercool

Hi all Is my Honda Accord 1993 front wheel drive? Just curious. Thanks Yes, all Honda's mainstream cars, trucks, and crossover vehicles are front-wheel-drive based. The trucks and Crossovers that are All-Wheel-Drive use front-wheel drive when not in 4WD mode. The S2000 Roadster is the only Honda car for sale in North America that is Rear-Wheel Drive.

When the car doesn't start, and the cause is the battery is now discharged and doesn't have enough voltage to start the car, then the problem is either: - the battery is defective, or - there is something 'on' in the vehicle, which is drawing a current while the vehicle is turned off, and drawing all of the current out of the battery while it sits for two days.

Hi, I need some help with a problem I have with my 1993 Honda Accord, 142,000 miles. Over the past several months, my car has been jumping/hesitating/stuttering. Initially, it happened so rarely I thought I had gone over something on the road. It happened more frequently, I started to pay attention. It felt as though I had driven over speed bumps. The car would lose power, stutter/jump several times and then ... Read More
That will do it. That has to be a really tight connection. How could that be loose, if you had the battery checked at autoparts store? They would have tightened it.....
Your logic make sense. I opened the hood today and spent sometime looking into the connections. I saw the wire that connects the starter to the battery really loose. So I cliped it firmly. I will see if this will fix the problem...if not, I will try other possibilities.
Sounds like you (or someone) needs to do some investigation into this matter. Here's a troubleshooting link, if you want to check it out. Good luck. http://techauto.awardspace.com/ignition.html
Unlikely the starter, remotely possible, but I doubt it. The only thing you are doing when 'jumping' the vehicle, is connecting up a known battery of working voltage to your battery. If the starter had a problem, which battery is connected doesn't matter. Since you know you have a good battery and alternator, the next thing to eliminate is whether something is draining down your battery. If you have a charged ... Read More
Of course, I tested the old battery before replacing it. They say it is bad. But having a new battery did not fix the problem. I went back to Autozone. They tested the new battery and alternator. Both are fine. They did not know what still cause this, as the problem still exist. The battery location seems fine along with the connections (nothing loose). So the problem is not from the ...

Thanks for the advice. I went back to Autozone. They tested the new battery and alternator. Both are fine. They did not not know what still cause this, as the problem still exist. The battery location seems fine along with the connections (nothing loose). So the problem is not from the alternator, could be the Starter?
In addition to the previous advise, check your battery cables. A faulty battery cable will often (typically in my experience) exhibit the same symptoms as a weak battery during the start cycle, sometimes even requiring a jump start, but won't necessarily have an obvious noticeable effect on the car's charging / electrical system once it is running. If your warning light is not illuminating when the car is running and you ... Read More
You should have had Autozone test the old battery first. Your car's electrical system could be draining the battery, or you could have a main relay problem. Read this link, and try to diagnose the cause. http://techauto.awardspace.com/ignition.html The important thing is to find the cause, and test the suspected parts. Getting into a guessing game, can become very expensive. Good luck, in your quest for truth. :)
Did you have autozone load test your old alternator and battery before buying a new battery? Most autochains will do that for free. Since your car starts when jumped, that usually means your battery is discharged. 'WHY' it is discharged, is the real question. If it was discharged because the battery had a bad cell, then replacing the battery would fix the problem. However, if the reason the battery had low ... Read More

The transmission computer is one thing I know is different between the 90 & 93 models. The 90 had the sport-shift mode, and blinked trouble codes at the computer, and the 93 uses the D4 light on the dash to blink codes, and has no sport-shift mode. Those are the only two differences I know of, but it could mean different wireing and plugs on the computers. I would check that ... Read More
I have a 90 and a 93 honda accord. each with problems that the other seems to not have.is it possible to just simply put them together without real problems? like the 93 transmission put into the 90 and struts switched and stuff like that. will it work??
I am just guessing here, but could it be the clutch position switch. The starter will not work without the clutch pedal pushed down, so I suspect the switch was knocked out of alignment while working on the clutch. I'm not a mechanic, but this was my thought as well.
