#20241 of 20255 2001 Honda 4cy valve train noise
Dec 01, 2009 (9:18 pm)
I have a 2001 Honda Accord with the 4 cy engine with the variable valve timing. It has 104K miles on the engine. When you are just at an idle hot or cold the valve train is noisy until you get your foot into it a little and start to accelerate. Up to speed is then quite. I think it involves something in the variable valve timing system. I had the timing belt,water pump recommended service performed not long ago.This noise was present before this was done and is still there. I was hoping that when that service was performed that the problem would go away. Is this a normal noise or should I be concerned. If it is something that needs to be taken care of by the Honda Techs what should I tell them to look for or listen for. Any help out there. I really like the car it has an auto tranny that was replaced under warranty and it has been very dependable and fuel efficient and I am not ready to get rid of it yet. Please help!!!!!!!!!

#20243 of 20255 95 accord leaks on driver floorboard when rains
Jan 02, 2010 (9:48 am)
I have a 95 accord that leaks on the driver's side floorboard when it rains. This has been going on for over a year and I have had everything checked. No one can fix it! All drains and seals are working properly. Windshield is fine. The last person who checked said that it appeared to be coming from around (behind??) the firewall, but can't tell from where. Hose tests are no good because sometimes it takes a day before the water shows up. And it is drenched, often under the seat and to the back. It ONLY happens after a rain. It is not heater or ac related because it happens winter and summer. I love this car and want to get it to 200K before I sell....Please help. I am now desperate....
#20244 of 20255 replace headlamps 93 Accord SE
Nov 09, 2010 (7:40 am)
It's been a while since a headlamp burned out, but one now has. The left one I can reach but it is very difficult to turn the bulb and get it out. Does anyone suggest something like WD40 to help get it loose.
Now, the real problem. The headlamp on the right side has no room to even get a finger in there. Any suggestions how to proceed will be greatly appreciated.
#20245 of 20255 1994 Accord LX AC Compressor and Drier Replacement
Nov 22, 2010 (10:00 am)
This is probably a typical situation that all parents come across. Kids at school and the car goes on the fritz, this time it's the AC clutch. Car only has 90K on it so should I replace just the clutch or go for it all? The cost for a Denso compressor is appx $250 and the drier $20.00.
They should be able to capture the freon.
The shop wants $750.00 to do the job, I can understand 3 hours to replace though they want 4 hours. Anyone know of a reputable mechanic in gainesville that does not quote $900 first and then FINALLY get realistic?
Other options appreciated as well...

Call around, get quotes, and take the best one to the mechanic you want to use. If he doesn't drop his price, use the other guy.
#20248 of 20255 93 Heater cable replace
Mar 15, 2011 (9:39 am)
I have a 93 Accord SE and need to replace/re-attach the heater cable. For the life of me I can't find out how to access the cable.
The console between the driver and passenger seats has been removed, but I'm stumped how to access the device that holds the end of the heater cable (behind the plate). I guess the easy way to ask the question is, how do I get the heater control plate off to access the end of the heater cable.
93 Accord SE, 2.2 L engine
Thanks for any help.

For anyone with this problem, it's simple. What is difficult to turn is the ring that will release the bulb. Turn the ring, and the bulb will slide out. It's not like the Mazda you own.

i am one of those ' imperfects" according to my insurance company. one recent rainy dark night i parked in my driveway. i was gathering things to taken in the house. the keys were in my hand - signaling to me that the car was in park. as i got out, the force of the door opening started the car rolling down the drive, knocking me down. i was able to roll out of the way, but it caused $8000 damage to the car and my neighbors property. review of NHTSA reports showed 0 other reports of cars rolling. i have talked with several people who have had this happen. until someone gets hurt nothing will be done. it is the same interlock system of the recalled accords and civics. when it happens to you will understand - the keys just fall out - you don't realize that you think it is in park.
