I would contact the Attorney General's office or the Consumer Affairs office for your state. They may have specific laws in place that criminalize fraudulent auto repair practices. They may also have investigators to look into your complaint. It sounds like you really were defrauded. Crooked mechanics target people they think are naive about cars, namely little old ladies, women in general, people from foreign countries, younger adults, and others who appear not to have speciific knowledge of cars or who are operating at a disadvantage for some reason. I would call the AG office and/or the
Consumer Affairs office in your state.

#2023 of 2104 RPM gauge question
May 13, 2011 (8:02 am)
I have 93 Honda Accord 10th Anniversary edition, 183300 miles, auto. I noticed today when accelerating, the needle on the rpm gauge jumps up fast and comes back to normal. This happens when I am accelerating gradually or at least thats what I noticed. Is there anything I need to be worried about? Any ideas on it please?

Well if the transmission is slipping, you have a lot to worry about...when this occurs, does the car behave like it's in neutral, or does it continue to accelerate normally?

I have the same problem. For a month if I loosen the gas cap and let the air out it cranks right up. It did this for 1 month and last night it would not crank at all. I went and bought a new gas cap put it on this morning and it fired right up. Maybe try a new gas cap/

Thank you for the reply. When this happens, I think it does behave and accelerates normally.
Second thing I have noticed that the 'maintenance required' is red. I have the oil changed on it, I had pushed the little thing next to the maintenance required light to green but in a month or so it came back to red. I have asked around and the mechanics are not sure why it might be and they cannot hook up the machine to check what is wrong because my car is too old (93 accord). I tried to get the light back to green but it would not come back to green.
I am not sure if this is related to my original problem but just throwing out to you guys. Any ideas or if you need any more information, please let me know.

The Maintenance Reminder Indicator is a mechanical device which switches a colored tab from green to yellow, and later from yellow to red as the maintenance interval of 12,000km (7,500 miles) is approached and then reached.
The indicator is reset to the start of the maintenance interval by inserting the ignition key into the slot located on the front of the instrument cluster lens. When reset, the indicator's colored tab will return to green.
RE: TACHOMETER -- in that case, it sounds like a malfunction in the tachometer itself---I believe this is a part of the speedometer so maybe not much you can do about it at this point.
Any good repair shop should know how to read the trouble codes on an older OBD-I system.

if it is obd1 computer. the head and the block will work. but the obd2 distributor and some other sensors are differnt. you can change out with your old stuff. if you want power go to tigerjapanese.com i think and get an h22 dohc vtec and go from 130 to 200 hp. adding four wire from the motor to the ecu in the car is quite easy.i have one in my 92 accord four door. had it in a 90 accord two door till the body fell aprt. had it up to 147mph in fourth with pedal and another gear to go. makes the accord fun to drive.
