#1948 of 2107 1993 honda accord se 1992 ex engine swap
Jun 22, 2010 (4:47 am)
I have a 1993 honda accord se with a 1992 accord ex 2.2 f22 a6 swap. The problem is sometimes when i try to start it on a cold start it takes about 3 tries to start then when it starts it idles rough or sputters until it reaches 1500rpms. Also it kicks a cloud of white smoke on start up... Any ideas and the main relay is already been tested, fuel injectors changed im thinking it could be my intake mantifold......anything else

Stop leak may indeed stop a small hose or radiator leak.
Stop leak is ineffective against water pump leaks----so if the stop leak stops the problem, you know at least it wasn't the water pump.

Read this link, scroll up to the section on starting running problems. It may at least give you some ideas. I think it may be your ignition switch, but don't just take my word for it. There may be a recall on the ignition switch, so you might want to check on that too. Good luck

my car has 272,000 miles and does not have the original trannny, it has started not shifting correctly and now the green "sport" light is on. dumb question, but do you think the tranny is going out?

Thanks for the replies. If it is the water pump, where the heck is the weep hole?

If it even has one, it'd be on the underside of course, just behind the pulley.

Scratch my post, no one repled anyway. I disconnected the battery and the light went off, the car is shifting just fine.

To get a visual on the weep hole, take off the lower timing cover. You will need to crawl underneath the Accord, and use a flashlight.

Thanks for the reply! That makes sense unlike the rest of this mess.
I might have to get the car and drive it myself unless this might make sense to you. Car loose's water. He said it was on the drivers side somewhere. Okay, probably water pump. Now he gets to work to days in a row and says steam is coming out of the coolant tank but the temp gauge is still in the middle!! So I go over and start the car. No bubbles in the radiator, or water in the oil or oil in the water like a cracked head. Fans come on when the car gets to middle temp and it looks like water is flowing through the radiator. So I am thinking that possibly the thermostat could be intermitently getting stuck also?????

when i start up my 1990 accord, i have to let it warm up for several minutes. even in the summer. if i don't, when i come to my first complete stop after hitting about 25-30mph my car shuts off. when it shuts off the battery & oil lights are lit up. i've replaced the o2 sensor. any ideas?
