If you did not lock the cams in place when you removed the heads then the timing is messed up. Best advice for you is to get a service manual and start from scratch with re-installing the cams so you can find your #1 cylinder and get everything lined back up.

SOURCE: 95 honda accord V6 tachometer jumping and cutting out.

I had the same problem with my 1995 Honda Accord V6 2.7L a year ago. It was a pain to have Honda diagnose the problem because it was intermittent and every time I took my car in to the dealership they said they couldn't reproduce the problem, but the longer you wait the more frequently your tachometer will fluctuate. I finally stopped by the dealership when the tachometer was jumping and they were able to diagnose the problem. In my case there was a faulty resistor in the ignition coil, but the entire ignition coil needs to be replaced. I don't know anything about cars but I know this fixed my problem. I went directly though Honda's service center so I know they charged me more than an independent repair shop but I'm looking at my invoice now and I paid $150 for the ignition coil and $200 for labor. After Honda diagnosed the problem I searched for "1995 honda accord ignition coil tachometer" and found that other people had the same problem and replacing the ignition coil was the fix. Hope this helps.

If you live near an AutoZone they used to offer free check engine light diagnostics.
See what code they can retreive from the computer with their device and check it against the list of codes. It may not just be a missing Gas cap code. There are hundreds of codes computers can return.

Best Wishes.

SOURCE: 1995 Honda Accord will not start

First you must check to see what missing. You must have spark at the pugs and gas at the injector for this car to start. See whats missing and get back to me. The 1995 Honda Accord has a history of bad distributor. If there is no spark at the spark plugs replace distributor. However on some models the coil is separate and not in the distributor, if so make sure the coil is working.

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 $$$$$$$_)

My have a blown head gasket on my 2000 Honda Accord V6. What could have led to this problem?


most common causes of blown head gaskets are engine overheating. could be caused radiator cooling fans inoperative, cooling system leaks, clogged radiator passages,or sticking thermostat. if a head gasket is severely blown the cooling system will pressurize very rapidly on cold engine startup. other more rare cases of head gaskets blowing could be loose head bolts. make sure new head bolts are used and torqued correctly if service manuals recommend new head bolts.

90 psi compression is the minumun for gas engine to ignite, you have low compression what is the compression next to it? The compression on Honda V6 is 200psi. you can have a valve problem a blown head gasket, Also make sure your compression gauge is accurate by using another compression gauge

I have a 98 Accord that continues to overheat. I


Definate cylinder head gasket or cracked cylinder head. Compresion from the engine cylinders getting into the coolant system and blowing out the water. But what you have done so far is money well spent as something had to cause the overheating to begin with so fixing the cylinder head problem would have been one problem solved but not a complete fix.

Determining if head gasket is blown on a 1994 honda accord Ex w VTec


White smoke out of the exhaust is one indication that the head gasket is blown. Another is to start the car and check the oil on the dipstick. If it's frothy or looks like a milkshake, this is another indication of a blown head gasket. The milky appearance indicates that coolant is in your engine, caused by a bad head gasket. If none of these symptoms occur, then the problem lies elsewhere. Hope this answers your question and feel free to post back with any other concerns or questions. Thank you.

HOW TO REPAIR A HEAD GASKET IN A HONDA ACCORD 1998 EX?


Its alot of work, depending how knowledgeable you are in the this field its not impossible but the head has to be removed completely to replace gasket. I would recommend sending head to a machine shop to be machined and check for warpage or faults like crack etc. I would also recommend changing all seals in timing are along with the belts and the water pump and when you are done you should have a pretty new engine. Contact if you need more help and Good Luck. Thanks for using FIX YA
