Question about Cars & Trucks
Michael Patton suggested that the timing belt could have jumped a couple of teeth. How do I check this? is it possible to use a timing light on the1996 Honda Accord vtec engine to check the timing? Also can the fuel pressure regulator be tested by disconnecting the vacumn and electrical connections?
a 6ya expert can help you resolve that issue over the phone in a minute or two.

YOU HAVE A TORQUE CONVERTER PROBLEM. TORQUE CONVERTER CONTROL CIRCUIT MALFUNCTION CODES CAN COME FROM ELECTRICLE TO INTERNAL MALFUNCTION. IF YOU START EXPERIENCING A HARD SHIFT OR FREE SPIN TO HARD SHIFT DON'T BE SURPRISED. TRY CHANGING FLUID. THIS MAY HELP. HONDA WOULD HAVE REPLACED TRANS IF UNDER 105 k FOR FREE. IF YOU HAVE TO REPLACE TRANS. BUY ONE FROM HONDA, 3 YR WARRANTY AND AS CHEAP AS A REBUILT TRANS. HAVE A QUALIFIED PERSON INSTALL, YOU WILL SAVE ABOUT $500 DOING IT THIS WAY. GOOD LUCK

po505 idle air control if this is the code all hondas do it eventully, small problem easy fix u have 2 choices either remove the idle air control motor and clean the inside of it u will find it's black and the spring inside is stuck clean it with carb cleaner or gum cutter any parts store will have this it's a dirty job it will work for awhile but to replace it is recommended its not expensive for a new one which u can get at any autoparts store autozone,advanced,napa etc. there is only 2 bolts in most cases maybe 3 i doubt it though if u go online t google and type in th eyear make and model and engine size in ur case it's a 3.0 v6 and look for idle air control locations u'll find it to do this job a shop will charge u anywhere from 100.00 for diag to retrive the code plus the part and the labor so about 250.00-375.00 it will only take u honestly maybe 15 minutes to perform only tools needed are a 10 millimeter wrench there is only 1 connector to disconnect and ur done if u do this u will still have the check engine light because u have not cleared it from the computer to do this just disconnect the negative battery terminal (the black one or has a neg sign - don't disconnect the positive side +)for 5 minutes then reconnect and the computer will have reset no more light. good luck it really is that easy
