2002 Honda Accord SE 4000 RPM jerking

I own a 2002 Honda Accord SE 4 cylinder 4dr. The timing belt was replaced at 90K as recommended and this car has been maintained according to Honda recommendations. However, I am experiencing a really bad jerking motion when I reach the 4000 RPM mark. I press the gas pedal down further and it just continues to **** and won't kick out. The check engine light is on and my mechanic advised me that his scan tool suggested fuel/air error. He asked me where I got gas at lately. However, I continue to tell him that it only jerks at the 4000 RPM region. WOuldn't bad gas cause this car to run crappy all the time. Well, I purchased the Seafoam gas treatment as he suggested and added 1/2 can to my 1/2 tank of gas. I recently filled up my car with premium and added the remainder 1/2 can of Seafoam. Could this still be a bad gas issue???? Please advise. Thank you for your time.

    My mechanic advised me that the fuel filter is a fixed unit located in the gas tank. Do you think adding another whole can of Seafoam would help? Can bad gas cause these types of problems? I saw that Honda engines have a "limp" mode built into their engines and I think this is what I am experiencing.

    Actually, I went to visit the mechanic today. The scan tool identified the check engine light code as P1259. On the way home from the garage, my oil light began to blink. The mechanic did not have any time to look at my car, just time to provide me a code. So, I cam home and I "googled" that code and did some reading. The P1259 code means low oil pressure/vtec. At my recommendation, my husband stopped at the Auto store and bought a new oil filter and oil. When he got home from work he replaced my oil filter and changed the oil. We took the car for a test drive. My oil light went off and my car runs like a charm. No more jerking. And, this was all determined by some blonde, me, that did her research!

    I would have the fuel filter replaced.

Wow I had the same issue, I just went out and check my oil and it did not have nothing so I am sure that was the problem.

Thank you!

1999 honda accord vtech timing belt marks

The Honda F23 series engine is a 2.3 liter, all aluminum block, 16 valve, Single Overhead Camshaft (SOHC) motor used in the Honda Accord (1994 - 2002) and Acura Cl (2.3). Timing belt failure may result in either the intake or exhaust valves bending after contacting the pistons. If the belt has broken, a Compression Leakage test is advised to determine if the valves require replacement. Compression leakage from any of the cylinders (indicating bent valves) will require the removal of the cylinder head. An inspection and rebuild of the head by a reputable automotive machine shop is recommended in lieu of doing it yourself. This DIY article only covers belt replacement. The belt replacement interval is either 90,000 or 105,000 miles based on the specific model year. Check the owner's manual for the specific service interval. If the mileage is below the threshold but the vehicle is over 7 years old, consider performing a replacement as preventative maintenance (PM). Timing belts cannot be visually inspected for wear. Moreover, a visual inspection would require the removal of the timing belt cover which in itself is time consuming and better spent working on replacement. A typical timing belt component kit consists of: 1. Timing Belt 2. Balance Shaft Belt. 3. Timing Belt Tensioner Pulley. 4. Balance Shaft Tensioner Pulley

Need disassembly and assembly instructions for replacing the timing belt on a 2000 Honda Accord SE 4dr with a 2.3L V-tech 4 Cylinder from start to finish!

What you are asking for is a repair manual. Unfortunately, this information is copyrighted and you are not likely to find it just floating around the internet. However, is a very good source for service information for your Honda. For a small fee of around $27/year, you can have full access to all of the same professional service information for your car that I would use if you were to bring it to my shop for repair.

What else needs to be changed when doing a timing belt on a 1999 honda accord? and about how much should it cost?

Technically, nothing else needs to be changed when replacing a timing belt, however it is recommended or suggested to replace the timing belt tensioner and water pump while doing the belt. These items are only accessable when doing a timing belt. The cost should be under $100.00

Belt name

I have a 92 Accord, and there are only 2 belts that he can be referring to, one is the drive belt, which spins (drives) the power steering pump, a/c compressor, water pump, etc. the other is probably the one he is referring to, that's the timing belt. Honda recommends it be changed every 90k miles. If this belt isn't changed every 90k, it may break, and the accord has what is called an 'interference-' engine. This means that if the belt breaks, the valves and the pistons will strike one another, causing extreme damage to the engine. Note that if it is time to change the timing belt, u should also change the water pump, as it is easy to do at this time, and will cost much more down the road if u have to change it later, paying someone to disassemble much of what was done to replace the belt. Let me know if u have any other questions, or if I didn't answer your question clearly.
