  • ...that hole is not designed to plug, but to warn you that the pump bearing is wearing out...it's time to replace pump...if you don't, you will experience eventual increasing noise, vibration and coolant leakage--not to mention the damage to your radiator...

    Well I don't know your skill level, but the book says that for a trained mechanic it's 4.2 hours, or 4.7 with AC. So for you and me, probably a full day's job. :P

    (not that we aren't brilliant mechanics, but the person who does them day after day has a large advantage in time-saving).

    I have a 1989 accord 2 door coupe lx and i have 360,000km on it. The tranny is great. I change the fluides every 2 yrs and i use Full Syntech tranny oil and my oil is full syntech 5w30. I use iridium plugs and change them every year and change my air filter every 10000 km. Both fuel filters are changed every year. Take care of the car, change the fluids and you will be fine.

    hi all,
    I was told that only Honda steering fluid should be added into all hondas. Well, a few years ago a mechanic added a generic brand when my steering fluid hose was fixed.
    My car is starting to make steering noise when I make turns and I also notice rough steering. Can I just fix this problem by replacing old fluid with Honda brand fluid? Thanks

    Hi all,

    Can I install new oxygen sensors without a catalitic converter? I dont want to throw $$$ away if it defeats the purpose. Thanks, Cybercool

    You should be able to do it; I've had mine replaced three times under an emission recall on my '96 2.2L Accord LX, and never had the catalytic converter replaced.

    Hi all,
    I'm getting this rough wobbly and annoying steering noise from my 93 accord EX. I was told to add only Honda steering fluid. How can I get back the smooth steering as if the car was new? Flushing with original Honda fluid will fix this?

    I also understand it can be an alignment thing correct?

    Thanks for your help.

    i have 89 accord and i was getting the same thing. All my fluids are honda and syntech.
    My steering wheel shakes and vibrates, but got a balance and alignment and its perfect now.
    Here in canada it cost about 80.00 for alignment and 20 for a balance

    hi ,
    Can someone help me locate the oxygen sensors on my 93 accord? Are there two?
    Is this something I can change myself? A DIY type of thing?

    Or is a professional mechanic needed?

    Thanks

  • While standing in front of the car (front bumper) if look where the exhaust heat shield it.........you should see it bolted there. It's not that difficult to remove. Just be careful and go easy. Spray lots of lubricant. I've done 3 dozen of those on our cars.
  • Hey Titus

    I've looked in front of my car at the exhaust heat shield and I dont remember seeing it. Is it possible to send me a pic of where you see the Oxygen sensor on a 93 Accord?

    Thanks

  • Hey all,
    Just curious. I want to set a fair price on my Accord EX 93 for sale with the following problems. I have the car 4 years and it's been good to me.

    Automatic and has 165,000 miles
    driver side power window needs motor regulator replaced
    Oxygen senors needs replacement.
    ABS and light goes on
    power steering makes noise when turning ( maybe due to non-Honda fluid?)

    no visible leaks, car is in good body shape, black in color and beige interior

  • I am sorting through a problem with the radiator fan on my '93 and part of the diagnostic procedure involves the fan relay. Trouble is, I can't find the thing (seems to be located somewhere under the dash). Help with identifying this sucker is appreciated!

    It's very hard to get more than junkyard prices for an old car with a full array of warning lights showing. I'd recommended that you fix the oxygen sensors and ABS warning light problems.

    On a good day, with everything in order, cars like this might be worth $1500 to $2000, so with all your car's problems, you aren't going to even see $1000 in my opinion, as it sits.

  • Hi Jim,

  • Hi all,
    I'm getting this rough steering when driving and turning. I have a 93 Honda accord.
    Can it be because I don't have the genuine Honda steering fluid inside the power steering reservior?
    Thanks
    Jim
  • Could a bad fuel pressure regulator be the cause of my car not starting sometimes? The idle speed changes constantly too (Not bouncing up and down, just changes at every stop). It is also setting a code 43, which I was told was the fuel system or the o2 sensor. As for cybercool's question I don't think it matters what brand of fluid is in there. My Honda doesn't even have power steering fluid in it. Its full of a stop leak fluid they sell at autozone, and I don't have any problems other than the fluid smells burnt.
  • When I drive my car everything is normal until I reach 50mph-60mph my check engine light comes and stays on. But if I pull over and turn the car off and start it back up the light is off. Now when I just driving around town the check engine light does not come on... Another problem is that sometimes my car will act as if its losing power and won’t allow me to push on the gas(The car doesn’t cut off) and pick up speed but then all of a sudden I get a burst of power and I’m on my way again. Once it does this about one or twice it doesn’t do it any more while I’m driving. What could be wrong?
  • It would help if you would tell exactly which model and year you have.
  • Hi
    I'm getting this whinding noise when steering. I get rough steering. How can I reblenish the steering system so it can steer like as if I bought the car new. 93' Accord EX

    What should I check for?

    thanks
    jim
  • Yes.. It would sorry... 1993 Honda Acccord LX
  • I had the same issue on my 89 accord, mine was the fuel pump, it lost power then picked up again and lost and so on.
  • Thank you.. I will see if that's the problem..
  • The fuel pump will not cause the engine light to go on. Your problem is the EGR valve. Replace it and clean all the EGR PORTS. Unless you know your way around the engine bay and are mechanically inclined..............get a good mechanic to do this.
  • 92 honda accord ex dosent start the engine turns over but dosent get starting. the fuel is reaching the engine but i dont think it is getting any spark. I got new spark plugs and distributor cap and rotor. what else should i check and how?
