If the cylinder is not working because of spark a coil may solve the problem. If the cylinder is not working because of compression, it may be a bad valve intake or exhaust bad piston rings etc. A guide to go by is when you check the compression with a compression guage. The difference shouldn't be more than 10 psi between each. Good Luck

How long does it usually take to replace the slave cylinder on a 1995 Honda Accord?


I would imagine it might take around 1 hour of labour, plus brake fluid and bleeding time.
Perhaps two hours tops.

Check engine flashing


this usually indicates a cylinder misfire. Two things you can do.

1. remove the coils or wires one at a time until you find the cylinder that is not working. Than inspect the components on the cylinder (plug, wire, coil, etc)

2. scan the computer for codes. You should get a P030X (the X will be a number 1-6 depending on what engine you have). whatever number is shown is the cylinder that is misfiring. for example P0304 would be a number four cylinder misfire, P0302 would be a number two cylinder misfire.

Cylinder Misfires


It could be your spark plugs or a coil. To see if it's a coil move the coil from #5 to #6 the miss will change to that cylinder with code p0306 and change #1 to #3 and see if it changes to p0303. If it does replace all the coils. You change all coil because if one or two go you know the rest are not far behind
