The transmission computer is one thing I know is different between the 90 & 93 models. The 90 had the sport-shift mode, and blinked trouble codes at the computer, and the 93 uses the D4 light on the dash to blink codes, and has no sport-shift mode. Those are the only two differences I know of, but it could mean different wireing and plugs on the computers. I would check that out before switching the trannys. Good luck

Occasionally my RPM just goes to 0 for no reason. the car was stalling before but oil was leaking into the pugs so I had the gasket replaced and the plugs and the fuel filter. Runs OK but just sometimes it bogs and the RPM goes down. Wondering if anybody has this issue. Car has 176,000 on it just my winter beater.

My 1993 accord was bogging down spuradically (like it was running out of fuel) & it turned out to be the EGR valve.......

Don't spend any more money on it. It's probably just your cold start,short trip driving. To test,just fill up at a freeway on ramp station then fill up again on the way back at the same pump and check the mileage. Try to combine short trips and errands and run more of them with a warm engine and fewer w/ a cold start.

I removed my heat shield to get at my oxygen sensor and in the process sheared off the bolts that hold it on. Is it bad to have it off or should I not worry about? My intuition tells me it doesn't matter, but I'm not sure.

Has microfilm online (exploded parts views) for all models and years of Hondas. You can go there and see if the part numbers are the same. If they are, then you're golden, if not, you might have to do some more trial and error.
My guess would be the spindles, uprights, and axles and bearings would be different since the 93 has ABS and the 90s doesn't. Tie-rods are like $30 on eBay, you might want to just get new ones.
#1013 of 2107 Key wont turn!!
Dec 17, 2007 (4:54 pm)
my key wont turn when i go to start my car. i know turn the wheel and stuff like that. but even if i do it sometimes it just wont budge. this car has front end problems. would this have anything to do with this?? if not, would taking it apart be the best idea? the steering wheel that is.

I did have to replace the ignition cylinder on my '93. The key switch wouldn't turn. The '91 had to get replaced because it would turn but not do anything.
