    I just had my cylinder head reconditioned and I was trying to adjust my valve clearances. I noticed first that when I tried to adjust cylinder 4, I lined up the timing mark for cyilinder 4 and went to adjust the valces and found that they were far too tight to be adjusted. So I turned it to...

    I’ve just put the cylinder heads back into the car and now I need to put everything in time. I know that I want the valves for cylinder #1 at top dead center for the start of a compression stroke, but what postion do I want the other camshaft in?

    Hi all, I recently noticed something a little out of the ordinary with my 2010 Honda Accord EX-L V6 Sedan. Whenever I accelerate, it seems like the car is shifting later than it would usually shift. Usually with light acceleration, the car will upshift at around 2-3k rpms, but now its more like...

    So I had the valve cover off of my '14 2.4L yesterday to replace the gasket due to oil leaks. While I was in there, I noticed the timing chain seems rather slack. (forgive the image quality, this is from a picture of the entire head. It never even dawned on me to take a photo directly of the...

    Ok so been thinking about this for a while now and done a lot of research. I am very aware that the recommended time to replace the timing belt is 7 years or 105,000 miles. Here is my concern and question. My 2008 Honda Accord EX-L V6 has around 137,000 miles. I've lived in GA/AL the entire...

    I have a 2007 Honda accord that had a used engine with 26,000 miles put in last October. In June of this year the timing chain slipped causing damage to the cylinder head. To have the head reworked it will cost $475 and I found a used engine with 176,000 miles for $355. My question is: 1...

    Hello everyone, I bought a 2006 Honda Accord V6 6-Speed in Gunmetal Grey with 88k on it. When I got the car it needed a few small things and took care of them. I had to replace the rear rotors which wasn't too bad. One problem I'm having is really bad gas mileage. I'm not a speeder and I don't...

    I just replaced the engine in a 1999 honda accord 2.3 Liter 4 cylinder. I replace the timing belt but did not a line the timing marks beings the belt was not broke. I also had to replace the distributor being the junk yard engine did not come with one. Now I believe I am out of time the engine...

    I'm new to this Forum since I recently bought a 2006 Accord Coupe V6/6M even thought I used to have a Full Blown Turbo D16Z6 Civic Coupe EX that I sold about 4 years ago. To the point, I became very curious about the performance of my car with regular or premium gas and checked out this forum...
