I have a 1994 Honda Accord LX 4 door 4 cyl. SOHC. I wanted to change the thermostat because a friend of mine said that the temperature gauge goes normal to hot back to normal then to hot. I was looking in the engine but have no idea where the thermostat is located and how to change it. Can someone tell me where it is at and how to change it? Thanks

Does anyone know where I can download a good manaul similar to what is used at a dealership
Tomorrow I am removing a F22B motor on a 1996 accord LX and installing a 1995 motor from Japan. The Japanese motor doesn't have a sensor on the oil pump. I can't find my Haynes manual which I thought was ok at best. I really don't want to buy another hanynes manual tomorrow. I need to pull the front of this motor apart tomorrow. Can anyone think of anything I should watch out for other than pinning the counter weight.
Be careful if you buy a 1996 Japanese motor. You will end up with a 1994-5 that the supplier changes the oil pump and charges you 200 more. I'm short for time the supplier put the screws to me. After setting the whole thing up a week ago, they waited for me to take the day off drive 50 miles to tell me there is no warranty because I am swapping the pump. I called them from an add on Ebay and they knew this is what I was doing. They wanted 200 more for a 96. After they put me on the spot I said I would take the 96. One of the guys slipped and said there was no time to take one of the motors and install a pump with the sensor.

If nobody else gets back to you, you could try www.helminc.com
Approximately how much are replacement engines for an old Accord? I assume they are rebuilt, correct?........ and you have to return your old block. Are these short blocks or long blocks?

The motor is a used motor from Japan, cost 450.00. I found out that 450 to 500.00 it the normal price. There are alot of companies importing these motors all over the US. I saw the same adds being run for months. Apparently you have to rebuild or install a crate motor at what I was told 60K due to smog.

Does anyone know the original tires that came on this vehicle? I am buying a used accord that shows 152K on title but only 52K on odometer. Thank you in advance.
#990 of 1859 1.7year update

All is fine with my accord. I filled up yesterday at HESS and accidently put 89octane inside the tank . I tell you this is the best my car has ran in a long time! All that jerking from before has gone and it rides like new! I hope it stays that way when i go back to regular in about a week... I didn't even notice a difference in price because gas has been changing in price so much lately but its starting to settle a bit at $3.10-$3.20 for regular.
I'm still working on that odometer.... and power antenna... But otherwise, All is fine after 1.7years. Just that the colder (70-80º instead of 90º) temperatures have made the mpg drop a bit. Its usually about 68º in the morning when I leave (6:50am) and 85º when I leave school around 3pm. Now i just drive with the windows and sunroof open which still doesn't help much.
As a sidenote, I bought one of those carspace license plate brackets. It looks nice on my accord! If only the white paint matched the white on the bracket... Oh well, it still looks good!

I just replaced the temperature knob in my 1996 Accord for the umpteenth time. All you do is pull it off, pull the metal sleve off of the male coupling, and stick the new knob on.

Sure you don't mean the temperature control knob? It's usually the one that cracks from the cable binding. You have to turn the knob slloooowwllly, without too much force, to avoid cracking the knob.
