For example, the capacity of the Accord's "2.4L" engine is actually 2,354 cubic centimeters.

Thank you very much. Now I kinda get it. I know it wasn't an important question, but I guess I'm just curious by nature and there are some things, even when mundane, that just nag at me and drive me nuts if I can't figure out an answer.
Since you said it sucks in air would that be why a 3.8 Litre V6 should be more powerful than my 2.4 Litre I4. And it's because of the fact that the 3.8 would 'suck' more air thus creating a greater fuel to air mixture and provide more propulsion. Is that essentially what's going on? Hopefully propulsion is the right word.
Sorry if my wording is confusing. Grammer has never been my strong suit.
#66 of 93 03' Honda Accord - NEED HELP!
Feb 03, 2010 (12:22 pm)
I really do not know what is up with my 03' Accord V4. Whenever stopped at a traffic light, with my foot on the brake, the car keeps kicking as if it is struggling to stay in place. I put the car in park and as soon as the kicking stops the car goes below 500 RPM and the engine shuts off. I then have to turn the keys in the ignition again to start the car up. Once turned on, the kicking begins and it seems the engine is only not struggling when my foot is on the accelerator or it is in park in which case it turns off. WHAT IS GOING ON?!

This might be one of several things on the I-4. If the check engine light (CEL) is on have the vehicle serviced or if you are in a state where it is allowed, have an auto parts store read the code if you want to attempt a self-repair. If no CEL then take it to your mechanic or dealer.
This shouldn't be an engine issue, but rather an electronics or fuel issue. I'd bet on electronics. Good luck.
#68 of 93 Timing Belt or Chain
Apr 08, 2010 (1:00 pm)
I have a 2007 Accord EX-L. I bought it new in September 2006. I now have close to 90K miles on it and am looking at a few services. My dealer tells me I need the timing belt replaced (amongst other fluid flushes) My "mechanic" tells me that his system shows the 4 Cyls as having a chain. Who is right? I know close to nothing on engines - looks like a belt to me when I popped the hood?

The 4 cyl Accords have used a chain since 2003. Just the 6 cyl Accords still use a timing belt.

Even if your engine is a V6, you would still not see the timing belt under the hood. The belt you see is the serpentine/accessory belt. You would have to remove some covers to see the timing belt. Are you sure you have the 4 cylinder?

My Dealer is jumping up and down saying that I have a belt (all 4 cyls since 2004 says them) I know for a fact I have a 4 cyl. It is a 2007 4door EX-L. 166hp, 2.4liter DOHC 16 Valve i-VTEC 4 cyl engine. Now I am not sure what to do...more advise please....
