Assuming things didn't change much from the previous models, your Accord probably has 4 of them.One looks like a dog bone, located near the top-back of the engine, connecting to the firewall. Another one is located in the front, just behind the radiator, at the bottom. It's large, and sort of round looking. Another one is located in the back of the engine, near the bottom. You will have a problem seeing it, unless you know what to look for. The last one is mounted on the bottom of the engine-tranny. Its a small rubber mount.
You might want to look at pics of repalcement mounts, Partsamerica.com usually shows pics of them.

Majestic Honda has a web-site that allows one to research parts for Honda Vehicles. Go there, select the online parts catalog, enter your model year, model, transmission type and select Engine Mount, and you'll see what they look like.

I have a 2005 EX-L with 5 speed. Car is garage parked and I maybe drive it once during the week and at least once over the weekend. I just figured the brakes were extra senstitive because the car sits so much. The sensitivity wears off after braking three times (three stop signs). I drove a friends 96 EX (4 cyl auto) coupe years ago and the brakes were extra sensitive like this ALL the time. Once I got used to them it was fine. I drove a 2001 EX V6 before current car and while they were sensitive too they were never like the 96 coupe. I had a chevy before the 2001 Accord and let me tell you I will take sensitive breaks over mushy breaks that can't stop a car ANY day.
#12188 of 13114 1995 Honda Accord Gas tank won't fill up
Sep 19, 2005 (12:17 pm)
I was able to fill up my gas tank and get about 350 before each fill-up. Now all of a sudden, I only get 3/4 of a tank everytime I go to a gas station for a fill up. I know it's not filling up because now I only get about 250 miles between fill-ups. I tried several different gas stations to see if it was the pump. Any suggestions?

I bought a 2004 accord last June (approx 15 months now). My wife stopped driving it because she was having back pain with the seats. I drive it now with the same problem. I had a professionally installed lumbar support and extra foam added to the seat, but the problem is only marginally improved. We wish we hadn't bought the car based on this problem alone. Let me know if you're able to fix it (We have a 2004 LX-G).

I was just on ownerlink and did not see anything about transmission warranties being extended on MY2000 and up Accords. Can anyone show me where this is? I have a 2002 with 50K that is getting its THIRD new tranny this week. Only 50K! I want to see the warranty language!
#12191 of 13114 I need carburetor help
Sep 19, 2005 (3:02 pm)
My 88 Accord is very close to being scrap metal if I cant figure this darn thing out. I have done nearly everything, replacing nearly everything under the hood.I am in southern Louisiana now but live in the Phoenix area. I dont know if the carb is the problem but its the only thing I have not replaced. I dont know if its okay but needs proper adjustment or if I need rebuild or new carb. 175.000 miles
The problem is a lunging, stalling, sometimes runs great but not for long, then it lunges and coughs then stalls and seems to miss at times but starts up fine and strong. She is such a great car outside of this 'haunting' that I just keep pouring money into it knowing that it will come back strong.
So what do you guys think? New carb or a good adjustmant and then WHO? No one wants to work on these monsters. Youd think their hair was on fire they run from me when I say Honda Carb.

Buck, I also have an 88 Accord with a carb. One thing I have found with carbs is over time, and even with a fuel filter, some sediment does make it into the carb. What can happen especially if the car sat a while and the gas evaporated in the carb, the sediment can collect and create bigger chunks. When that happens, they will float around in the carb, and when they reach one of the jets, they can block it off.
I was able to carefully remove the top of the carb off and clean it out. That helped in my situation. Now, it may not be unrelated to your problem, but I thought I'd mention it.

I know the warranty was extended for some accords because I just got mine replaced a few months ago. It was a 2000 EX V6. Did not cost a dime. I got a letter from Honda telling me the warranty had been extended to 7 years 70000 miles. But was about two years after I bought the car. I know it was before the warranty ran out. It only had 35000 when I had the transmission replaced.

I have a lower back problem for years now. I also had some pain when first driving the new Accord for a long (an hour) drive, but I THINK (haven't gone for another 1-hour drive yet) I fixed it by ADJUSTING the seat...
You simply have to do some experiments, especially with those power seats which can give you some 64,000 combinations (...). I think my problem was having the front of the seat set to high (while the back of the seat to low) or, in other words, the ANGLE of the seat itself was too high and needed to be lowered.
Yes, I also agree, the Lumbar support is too high on your back, and actually may CAUSE you pain.
Don't give up... Keep adjusting and testing.
