If your going to do the work yourself, its not an expensive fix, little time consuming but it you pay attention to the parts when you take them off its not that bad, all in all, should be able to do it for less than a hundred bucks. Gaskets and fluids are all you need.

    forgot to mention to buy new head bolts if you decide to replace the gasket.

How do i change a cracked cylinder head in a 1994 honda civic ex coupe 1.6L engine?


Have a compression test done as it may be a head gasket and not cracked. Anyway the cheapest and most reliable procedure here is to have the job done professionally by a shop that specialises in Honda, Get a service exchange head is the answer and you should be back on the road in a day.

Check engine light on on 2005 honda accord coupe. 4cylinder. code is p2647 said trouble shooting do all repairs on vehicles but do not know that code.


p2647 is rocker arm actuator A- bank 1 stuck on--- to fix it should be the VTEC oil pressure switch. That switch will be on the cylinder head. Towards the windshield and passenger's side (I think).

Go to www . hondapartsdeals . com {remove the spaces when typing}

Go to parts, enter your car's info. System: Engine Component Vtec Oil control valve. That diagram should help a lot.

Good Luck.

Where could my 94 honda be leaking water at other than radiator.


Heater hose, lower or upper radiator hose, head gasket,heater core,thermostat housing gasket,engine block,cylinder head (Internally),
water pump.These are few key areas. A coolant pressure test will rule out many of these areas.

1994 Honda Accord LX Sedan just started overheating/losing coolant. The engine also idles terribly rough and has for a while now and will cut off sometimes if the A/C is on. Ignition components have been...


You got it... most likely the head gasket...

Other symptoms:
1. White smoke out the tailpipe and excessive water dripping out of it.
2. With radiator cap OFF and car running, there will be frequent bursts of steam and water (careful! it may be violent).
3. Oil dipstick will have a "milky" goo ... that's water mixed with oil.
4. Overheating can be alleviated in an emergency by running with a "loosened" radiator cap.

Check cylinder compression to confirm that two adjacent cylinders have low, and nearly the same pressure. That confirms blown head gasket.

Hope this helps!

Oil in overflow of radiator.


If you have coolant mixed in you oil you have blown a head gasket at the very least. You will have to pull the heads and replace the gasket.

Determining if head gasket is blown on a 1994 honda accord Ex w VTec


White smoke out of the exhaust is one indication that the head gasket is blown. Another is to start the car and check the oil on the dipstick. If it's frothy or looks like a milkshake, this is another indication of a blown head gasket. The milky appearance indicates that coolant is in your engine, caused by a bad head gasket. If none of these symptoms occur, then the problem lies elsewhere. Hope this answers your question and feel free to post back with any other concerns or questions. Thank you.

Vtec 2.2L misfires


misfires wont always trigger a OBDI code but take your injector out and have it bench tested at local parts store or repair center assuming you have spark in that cylinder, cheaper usually but if it needs replacement heres some great places to get cheap replacement

Take the V-Tec control solenoid off and the base off the cylinder head then go to the dealership and get the parts that replace the gasket to seal the solenoid and the base module to the engine there is a clogged screen for the oil in there and the gaskets are most likely on the verge of leaking anyway. Cleaning this screen gives the 2.2 v tec all the required oil pressure to fix this problem. Most Honda or Acura dealers have these parts in stock yet, there are several different ones per engine family so I suggest that you take the solenoids and base plates with you to match up visually as i have experienced recently with a tuner, they are not all the same. many dealerships have these in stock because it is a common problem. You will see an immediate difference. Although the Honda accord is somewhat less aggressive with the v tec than say a prelude or an acura is. Due to differences in camshaft and cylinder head and intake designs for each car. Accords are typically a family oriented car whereas the prelude and Acura are more the sporty side of the equation.

Water in cylinder


The absolute "cheapest" fix is to go to your local auto parts store & buy a can of a product that is called "Block Seal" or something like that (terminology changes from region to region); tell the parts guy your problem & he will sell you the right stuff. Read & follow the directions. I cannot guarantee that it will work 100% (as we both have no way of knowing exactly how bad the situation is without disassembly), BUT, I have personally used "Block Seal" several times, and have had good results.
Try it. If it works, you will haved tons of $$$. If it does not work, you will need to pull the head & replace the head gasket. Hope this helps.
