    I think it is a 22B2??

  • tlk2jame Jan 28, 2009

    No I am going to hopefully be finding a few friends. It is for a single mom with no transportation. I am going to try to purchase or pay to rebuilt the engine myself. I will then be hoping to get a volunteer or 2 to install.

    Wish i had friends like that... ok... cheapest route would probably get a motor from a recyling/junk/wrecking yard that hasn't got alot of miles on it.... look for a car that was written off in an accident and have a look at the odometer. second ... rebuilts are usually cheaper after the junk yard option third if you have the money... new...if i remember those motors i could lift one out on my own lol

Every 100,000 miles or so you need to change the timing belt as it is the cornerstone to the engine. If the timing belt fails, and your engine is an interference engine, it can make the valves smash into the pistons which will need a full rebuild ($$$$) or replacement.

Don't scrimp on the timing belt, get one direct from Honda or at the very least a very good blueprint. A few hundred dollars getting a new one and installing it will save thousands in case it breaks.

My honda accord 96 has check engine light on, how to fix this problem?

Probably an 02 (oxygen) sensor or maybe a vacuum problem as simple tightening your gas cap. There are two 2 sensors in most cars so you have to figure out which one it is, or bring it to the service station. You can't pass inspection in most states with the "check engine" light on.

Only 60 lbs of pressure in # 4 cylinder is it better to rebuild or replace engine.

you may only need a valve. What is pressure in other cylinders? If OK, take head off before making your decision. Unless whole engine needs work, it is much cheaper to fix the head. If you need instructions, please let us know.

Look forf the number plate on the front of the block near the transmission. Depending on your state, you may only be allowed to register a car with the orriginal type of engine.

You can also see the engine code as the eighth digit of the Vehicle Idendifacation Number (VIN).

Then use that information to source the replacement.

Bleeding clutch slave cylinder

if you loosten the slave bleeder screw and push in the clutch pedal fluid should come out if not make sure someone holds down the pedal and tighten the screw then pump the clutch a few times and hold the pedal and open the screw if no fluid repeat a couple of times if still no fluid you need either a new master cylinder or just rebuild it( normally cheaper) and if you rebuild it make sure you flush all the lines of debris
