Seems emission related... Did you try your honda dealer? Inquire about the 98-081 service bulletin. It applies to All honda models that are between 1996 and 1997. (except the Honda Rodeo... err passport ). It also applies to 1995 accords with a v6 engine. All you need is fewer than 150k miles or 13 or 14 years**. For me, its been 115k miles and 11 1/2years. The speedometer may jump crazily or a squealing sound coming from the engine bay around 3k rpms will be heard. A slight bucking is evident also. It includes a FREE* Oil Change.
*If the procedure hasn't been done. The cost of labor and parts and whatever else emission related, $0
** To be sure, do a google on the 98-081 service bulletin

#395 of 1859 1997 Honda Accord EX cigarette lighter
Jul 19, 2006 (7:05 am)
I have a 1997 Honda Accord EX and am looking for a cigarette lighter assembly replacement. Any ideas? It was originally a little loose when I bought the car a year ago, and has recently fallen out of the trim assembly. Thank you for any help!

I have a 1994 Honda Accord LX 4DR Sedan.. bought my car and the automatic door locks didn't work. The remote it came with doesn't work. Using the key doesn't work and the manual button on the door doesn't work. All of a sudden they worked but then it stopped and hasn't worked since. Anyone have any ideas or should i just go out and buy a Keyless/Alarm set?

Sorry i haven't responded sooner. I did change the thermostat, an $8.50 part. It made all the difference in the world . Thank God it was not the transmission. It did the trick. I took it out for a drive to Chillicothe (about 12 miles from my house, 4 lane highway, 60 mph). My torque converter kicked in and the rpms dropped from 2700 to about 2350. It was a miracle! i was used to it running about 2800 rpm 60 mph that it was kind of relaxing to finally hear the engine calm down. Thank you so much for all of your guys help. Without this site, i would have never known anything was wrong. Also another good highlight, my avg. fuel econ. has increased by about 10%!

Hey I have another problem for ya'll to figure out. I have been having problems with my fuel gauge being inaccurate. I can't tell for sure when this started, but it is obviously here to stay. My gauge is reading lower than what it should. I once ran it down to empty, and the low fuel light came on. I panicked, but i made it to a station. Figuring on a 17 gallon fillup, considering that's the size of my tank, i was rather surprised when the pump kicked at 11.2 gallons. I tried to make it go more, but it kept kicking, so i stopped, knowing that 11.2 gallons would last me a while anyways. Again i was surprised to find that the gauge was up to full. It has been doing this ever since then, and it may have been happening a while before that. I can typically run it about 280 miles before i "need" to fill up again (according to my gauge). I can get about 10 gallons in before the pump will kick and the gauge will read full. The gauge reads like the tank is 10 gallons, so i use it as more of an MPG meter and use my tripometer to tell when i need to fill up. Its not really a problem, more like an annoyance. If anybody has had this problem or knows how to fix it, please help me out here.

Hi odysseyaccord, Mrbill and other Honda experts,
I have 97 Honda Accord 4 cylinders 16 valves. I try to change timingbelt.
The power steering pump, alternator, valve cover and upper timingbelt cover are off now. I am still having hard time correctly aligning all timing marks (TDC). Something is bothering me after looking up mechanical manual and talking to someone in the autoshop. The problem is that the 'UP' is upside down on camshaft pulley when the crankshaft pulley notch on the mark and the distributor rotor pointing #1 cylinder.
Is this possible? And then I tried to make 'UP' stays up and the crankshaft notch on the mark, but the distributor rotor points #4 cylinder. So please tell me which of two can I count on?
-- crankshaft pulley notch on the mark
-- distributor pointing #1 cylinder
-- 'UP' is up on camshaft pulley
Did I miss something? Or anything else I can do to get this straight out?
Thanks in advance.

Glad you got your T-stat problem sorted out. I guess my bet was a safe one last time.
Here is some info on how the float, etc works for gas gauges: http://auto.howstuffworks.com/fuel-gauge1.htm
I had one float that the gas had permeated and caused to sink lower in the tank giving false low readings, you may have a similar problem. Either way, the float is something to have looked at.
