timing chain

  1. Problems & Solutions
    Please pardon any obvious repeat discussion. I've attempted a search with no luck. Long story, short. I bought a 2009 Accord EX 2.4 with 162k miles on it from a Toyota dealer in early March. The dealer changed the oil prior to my purchase. Two days after buying the car, I had my local Honda...

    Hello, First time poster. I bought a 2003 2.4L accord a year ago. It has been consuming about a quart of oil most of that time every 500 miles. Brought it in today to the dealer. Said the timing chain jumped two teeth. They said that was probably the source of the oil consumption. Meanwhile...

    Hi all, I have a 2004 2.4L I4 sedan with 206,000 miles. It has its original timing chain, and I'm considering driving it from Atlanta to Maine and back in two months from now. It's had regular oil changes all its life, mostly quick lube places for the first 170,000, then dealership with the...

    I have a 2005 Honda Accord LX, 4 cylinder, manual transmission, 155K miles. I just had the timing chain replaced and the timing adjusted. When I got it back the engine sounds louder than it did before especially in 2nd and 3rd. It now sounds like a sportscar instead of a sedan. It almost...

    Timing Chain seems loose. 2003 Accord LX 2.4 Sedan, automatic transmission. 252,000 miles I have all the Misfire codes and the P0341 Engine uses a quart of oil every other tank of gasoline. O2 sensor fault. Really Rough running, stalls on idle, nearly impossible to keep running. I did...

    I've noticed for the past few days that there's a very subtle rattling sound whenever I'm at a red light. It's only if I'm in D, 1, 2, or 3. P, R, and N are perfectly fine however. I haven't noticed any issues when the car changes gear either. The last ATF change was ~4k miles ago (one drain...

    So my 03 coupe needs a new timing chain after a little over 200k miles. I didnt find anything on which would be best to do. I know if the chain was replaced then it would run basically till the wheels fell off, but was wondering if it would be better to get a new engine (that hopefully doesnt...

    About 12-14 mos ago a local (well-known) Honda mechanic/shop did major repair. Replaced timing chain/guide/tensioner/etc as it had jumped 3 teeth thanks the well known oil consumption problem that Honda still fails to acknowledge. The shop also claimed the alternator was bad and replaced it as...

    I talked to Midas about changing the Timing belt on my Accord. They looked it up and said that it has a chain instead, and that I do not need to change a timing chain. Does this seem correct? I would hate to ruin an engine because of bad Advice from Midas. Thanks
