Question about 1983 Honda Accord
Im trying to sell my 83 Honda Accord but everytime an interested buyer pops the hood they notice like 6 hoses are capped off in Red tape around the carburetor. Why would this happen. I put a brand new or refurbished carburetor in it about 4 months ago, however I believe the tape was there from before. The car is stalling at stop signs and that is what I thought it might have been but no. I dont have much money to fix and just wish I could order the parts online without having to fork out hundreds of dollars. And being a woman who knows absolutely nothing about cars it seems I get jipped every time. Oh and the car jolts whenever I put it in reverse. One of the big hoses isnt taped off and one friend said it was carbon monoxide coming out and I could die from it. I dont believe that a car place wouldnt tell me about that plus I believe it was like that before. After reading all the reviews on this car I may just want to keep it. The gas gage doesnt work and the brake lamp keeps going on. My grandma died a year ago and left me the car so I would actually like to keep it since im sure it will run great once its fixed. Can anyone help me? Please
Trish, Not knowing exactly who has worked on your car, I think the first thing you need to do is go to www.helminc.com and buy a factory service manual for your car. I just checked and its is $53.00. They are excellent manuals and model specific and can help you fix just about any problem with your car. They have troubleshooting charts, vacuum hose diagrahms. etc.
Consider the $53.00 an investment. I guarantee you could never take the car to a garage for that ammount of money and It will help you understand how your car works. If it helps you solve one problem it has paid for itself.
Get the manual and research your problems, narrow them down and eliminate the easy stuff, then write back and we will help you.
P.S. don't buy the Haynes manual, but the Factory Honda service manual.
