You have a timing chain not a belt. Happy motoring.

I replaced head gasket on honda 3.0 engine now no compression and no start


bingo, hondas are all interference engines, (99%)
http://www.interferenceengines.com/honda.html

3.0L J30A1 V6 200 hp (150 kW)??????? this one?
SOHC V6

no compression on all cylinders????????? or just 1.
1: the valves were bent. at the belt snap?, (skipping 60k service !@)
2: you timed the cam wrong.
3 : The system uses the i-VTEC system to turn off one bank of cylinders under light loads
so maybe this feature is active? and you didnt check all cylinders for
compression? ???? try all 6 and post.
did you follow all steps in the FSM to do this job? y/n
or alldata.com ????

4: did you have the HLA valve lifters out. and not prime them? per FSM.
if you like this car, why not own a FSM. (or equiv)

never ever crank over any interference engine after any major work
(heads off, cam belt, change,or lost compression)
until:
1: you turn engine over by hand, sparks out.
2: then run a cyl. leak down test, first. on all 6
if not ,the 7 HP starter can in FACT bend valves.
that be Rule 1. (or $$$$$$$_)

99 Honda Accord 4 cyl manual 54000 kms, serviced


USA answers, always.
and 60k is most cars. (most cars they like to die at 100k miles)
and is not possible by any human to answer EOL , end of life.

that depends if its Honda belt, or Gates or some china carp
sold off fleabay.
and air temp, where you live, Climate, Pheonix. or Canada?

ok it seems this belt is the first ever to be changed out. Gates is the best.
my online links shows 5 engine options, 1.6L to 3L.
that begs the question #1 is my engine interference type,
if you go to the GATES (tm) ecatalog, you can see if it is or not. using engine type. option as your selection.
i pulled up the maintenance tab and it states, 105K miles.
but may vary by engine, and for sure if belt is 2nd time.
look up this info carefully.
and can vary with cars driven extensively in stop and go traffic.
hot , and long engine hours, but low miles.
i see no chain, on the 5 engines, alldata shows 5 belts.

105,000 miles best case USA.
168,000 meters 168K meters

urgent.? 2.3L is interference 105/60k (60k miles severe usage)
3L?
i look at Gates and bingo Interference.
so URGENT.
is it urgent.
easy answer?, if it looks bad, it is. get it out of there.
cracks, fraying, distortions of any kind.
only reality counts. (yours)

navigates. is the ecat.

if really paranoid, get a real Honda belt... 105k miles is magic.

I was driving my 1991 honda accord an timing belt broke iam woorried that it might have damaged engine what should i look for i was going to replace belt an try to get back running any advice thanks


Honda engines are what they call interference engines. This means when a timing belt breaks, the pistons hit the valves and bend them. You will need to remove the cylinder head and get the bent valves replaced if you want it to run correctly. Impossible to know how many valves are bent, depends on how fast the engine was turning when the belt broke.

WHY AND WHEN DO I NEED TO CHANGE THE TIMING BELT ON A 2000 HONDA ACCORD, 6 CYLINDER?


Every 100,000 miles or so you need to change the timing belt as it is the cornerstone to the engine. If the timing belt fails, and your engine is an interference engine, it can make the valves smash into the pistons which will need a full rebuild ($$$$) or replacement.

Don't scrimp on the timing belt, get one direct from Honda or at the very least a very good blueprint. A few hundred dollars getting a new one and installing it will save thousands in case it breaks.

Does a 2007 Honda Accord with 43,600 miles need a engine oil flush? A local body shop said the engine oil is dirty and the engine needs a flush, but the car drives just fine with no such problem.


No, they are just trying to rid you of some money. If the engine oil is dirty it just needs changing not a flush. Change your oil/filter every 5,000 and forget about an engine flush. Notice this is a body shop telling you about your engine. See anything wrong with that? They may know body work but they for sure do not know engines. If this is a V6 have the cam belt replaced at 110,000 miles as this is an interference engine. If it is a 4 cylinder it has a chain so nothing for you to do.

Timing belt broke


Honda accord 2.2L and 2.7L engine's are interference engine's, which if timing belt breaks it will bent cylinder head valve's, cylinder head will have to come out to replace bent valve's, also your water pump is timing belt driven not bad idea to also replace while in there, good luck, hope this was very helpful.

WHEN DOES THE TIMING BELT FOR A 2004 HONDA ACCORD GET REPLACED?


It depends on the engine. The 4 cylinder engine uses a timing chain, and is generally replaced every 150,000 miles (Honda doesn't give a specific interval) with the water pump (driven off of the timing chain) and timing gears. On the V6 engine, you have a regular rubber/steel belt, and it is supposed to be replaced every 105,000 miles, according to Honda. The water pump is driven off the belt as well, and should be inspected or replaced. (I recommend replacing the water pump anyway, just to save yourself any future trouble)
