  2. The 7th Generation
    Hopefully someone can help me with this. My 2005 Honda Accord LX 4-cyl has been misfiring. I've replaced the sparkplugs, and it still misfired. Took it to the shop, their computer read a misfire on cylinder 2, so they replaced that coil, still misfired. When they put the old coil back in and...

    About 120K miles ago the original engine in my 2006 VP died (Timing chain slipped). A used engine was put in and now its time to change the plugs. My problem is that the original car/engine was badged as an LEV and the replacement engine is an SULEV. Am I correct that even though the new...

    I just changed the sparkplugs on my 2001 accord with NGK plugs. After the changed the car idles around 500 rpm where before it idled around 800. I replaced the plugs without a torque wrench and wanted to leave them looser rather than strip the threads. Could this be the cause?

  10. Problems & Solutions
    Hi all, I have a 6 speed honda accord coupe with a vtech engine. I was driving recently and the engine started to make a really loud rattling noise. I took it to the shop the next day and they said I needed a new engine, at 78K miles, because a spark plug came loose and damaged the cylinder...

    Car had 111,000k miles on the originals. I dont know how to diagnose old plugs, but some had differing gaps, possibly indicating they were worn. The plugs were purchased at autozone for $8 each. They qualify for a mail in rebate for $2 on each which brings them down to $6 per These combine...

    Do you think it would do better to put Platinum Plugs in even though the book recommends NGK's? I want to put Platinum because from prior experience the car is suppose to run better. What do you guys think??
