I've been getting the Code 43 light issue for a while now. I want to have the fuel system checked out. Does those fuel injector cleaning agents sold at auto part stores really work or is it all hype? What should I ask for when getting the fuel system checked or cleaned out? Also I smell gas when starting up in the mornings. Does this mean gas leakage?

My suggestion would be to look up the parts you need at one of the 2 bigger muffler manufacturers.
www.maremont.com or www.walkerexhaust.com
Both will have online catalogs showing the parts you need. Factory type welded exhaust systems are common, you should find them on their web sites. Look for their online catalogs or e-catalogs (whatever they call it) look under Honda, Accord, 1993. Only thing after that is the listings may ask things like Japan/USA/Canada, sedan/station wagon, and if your current muffler has 2 pipes coming out the back or 1. The sticker in the drivers door jam will tell you where the car was made.
Assuming your car came with a 2.2L 4 cyl engine, I don't think that 10th anniversary edition will make any difference when ordering replacement parts. Once you find the page with the diagram, print it out and bring it to your local parts store, or order them online. Don't forget to order any gaskets shown.
Below is the car options I copied from Maremont, I would assume the 3rd listing down is what you may have, 1993, passenger car, USA, Dual outlet pipes.
1990-1993 836 1 Exhaust System 1990-1993 DX & LX Passenger Car All 4 Cyl. (2.2 L) Eng. 1990-1993 EX Passenger Car All 4 Cyl. (2.2 L) Eng. (Canada Only)
1991-1993 835 1 Exhaust System 1991-1993 LX Station Wagon All 4 Cyl. (2.2 L) Eng. USA Production Code 1 (1)
1992-1993 832 1 Exhaust System 1992-1993 EX & SE Passenger Car All 4 Cyl. (2.2 L) Eng. USA Production Code 1 Dual Outlet (US Only
1992-1993 5761 1 Exhaust System 1992-1993 EX-R Passenger Car All 4 Cyl. (2.2 L) Eng. (Canada Only)
1993 830 1 Exhaust System 1993 EX-R, EX & SE 4 Door Sedan All 4 Cyl. (2.2 L) Eng. Japan Production Code J Dual Outlet

You can get one from Majestic Honda. Enter your car year, and model. They have the anniversary edition for $116 + shipping. Here's the link.
PS: If you print out the item price sheet, your local dealer might match the Majestic price. That way you don't pay for shipping. Good luck
#1537 of 2107 TCM and ECM... difference?
Mar 23, 2009 (6:30 am)
Is the TCM and ECM in the same place? Are they the same unit?
#1538 of 2107 Re: TCM and ECM... difference? [cybercool]

Two different units. Both are located on the passenger side floor below the dash.

Are they side by side each other? Looks like I need to replace them both because my D4 light keeps blinking, causing my car to down shift. Cybercool
#1540 of 2107 90 Accord LX; speedometer/odometer
Mar 23, 2009 (6:07 pm)
I'm a newbee... just acquired a 90 accord LX from a relative. They replaced the timing belt, Master Cylinder, hoses and fuel pump recently. It has 79,000 miles, (but probably more like 150,000 because the speedometer & odometer do not work). The engine light is on and the "S" light blinks continuously. It has mainly been sitting idle for the last 2 years in hot weather; prior to that it was a tow-car (in tow behind a motorhome). I just drove about 500 miles on a trip to test it out, and it runs pretty good although the steering wheel starts vibrating at about 60 mph.
Does anyone have advice about where I should start with trying to fix the speedometer, odometer, engine light & "S" light? Perhaps a front end alignment would smooth out the shimmering at 60? any ideas? (don't have a lot of money)
Love to hear from anyone! Thanks. Karen

Read through this link. It should give you some idea what the problem is. Since the car has been sitting for 2 years, the tires are probably the cause of the shimmy (flat spotted or out of balance).
#1542 of 2107 Fuel supply system replacement
Mar 24, 2009 (11:36 am)
Sorry if this repeated question. My Honda 93 Accord EX seems to have the code 43 (engine light) which points to the ECU or fuel supply system. My car has a rough ride and jerks with D4 light blinking. This link http://techauto.awardspace.com/transmission.html is helpful but what else can I do to have a smooth ride again? Full Tune up? What does a fuel supply system fix entail? Thanks
