#1080 of 1859 1996 Honda accord 2.7 6cyl (Frost Plug)
Jan 30, 2008 (8:35 pm)
I live in Alaska where temps can get as low as negative 60 degrees. I have been looking around for a frost plug for my honda so I can plug it in at night. I went to Napa, and a place called Schucks with both are reputable auto parts stores up here. However they both had me sold on what they say is the only kind of frost plug for my car. I compared both of them and they were the same plug, except napa's gave the detailed instructions on where to install it. Easy huh? Well, I went home and pulled the seal out where it say's to put the frost plug and there wasn't any threads in the hole where it should have been. The plug I received had a threaded end which would just screw into the engine block. Does anyone know if they make a different plug meant for my car and where I could find one. Or, with out having to take off a bunch of parts where is the location to install it. I looked all over where I could visibly see with a light and the only hole was in the rear (firewall) center of the block, but that wasn't it.

I just found your post while searching for solutions to the same problem on a '94 Accord.
Did you get the problem corrected?
What the heck is the O2 sensor heater?

I think it's part of the sensor.

All 1997 Accords have 150,000 mile warranty on emissions. (U.S. Govt. settlement) I brought it to the dealer and they replaced the oxygen sensor #1. Problem fixed.

Does anyone know where the frost plug hole is on the block of a Honda Accord? Or if there even is one on my particular model?
I bought a plug which they told me fits, however I have not been able to locate the place it belongs in.
Thanks for any help.

Does anyone have a good experience ordering new floor mats for a '97 Accord (EX 4-dr) online? I'm going to stop by a dealer at lunch today to see what they retail for there. Thanks in advance!

i have a 1994 honda accord. continues to fail ASM emmission test.
HC ppm = 1800 allowed 127, NOx 1600 allowed 910.

Replace the oxygen sensor HC ppm = 2000, NOx=1600 both failed,
Timing is good,

This is a misfire problem I think. Maybe you should do a compression test or at least a cylinder balance test to see if you're beating your head against a very thick wall, like a burned valve or tight valves that need adjusting (I THINK you can adjust the valves on that engine---not sure).
But such high HC is almost always an incomplete combustion issue, i.e., ignition or related.
Maybe funky injectors?
