    the crankshaft and the camshafts have to be in time with each other. When the number one cylinder piston is at top dead center on the compression stroke, then the crankshaft timing mark should be at zero, and the camshaft pulley marks should also line up with their respective marks. I suspect that one of the camshaft pulleys or the crank is mistimed.

Honda accord exi 1992. i was driving about 100kph when all the power suddenly shut down and i wasn't able to start it again and there is no spark on the ignition coil


If it sounds kind of like a sewing machine when you try and start it, the timing belt has probably broken and the cylinder head may have to come to replace bent valves before a new belt can be put on. This is unfortunately a common problem on older Hondas if the belt is not changed on time.

How to change a timming belt on honda civic


Timing Belt and Tensioner REMOVAL & INSTALLATION 1984–87 Engines
  1. Turn the crankshaft pulley until it is at Top Dead Center.
  2. Remove the pulley belt, water pump pulley, crankshaft pulley, and timing gear cover. Mark the direction of timing belt rotation.
  3. Loosen, but do not remove, the tensioner adjusting bolt and pivot bolt.
  4. Slide the timing belt off of the camshaft timing gear and the crankshaft pulley gear and remove it from the engine.
  5. To remove the camshaft timing gear pulley, first remove the center bolt and then remove the pulley with a pulley remover or a brass hammer. This can be accomplished by simply removing the timing belt upper cover, loosening the tensioner bolts, and sliding the timing belt off of the gear to expose the gear for removal. NOTE: If you remove the timing gear with the timing belt cover in place, be sure not to let the woodruff key fall inside the timing cover when removing the gear from the camshaft. Inspect the timing belt. Replace if over 90,000 miles old, if oil soaked (find source of oil leak also), or if worn on leading edges of belt teeth.

    Fig. 2: Positioning the crankshaft and camshaft pulleys before installing the timing belt — 1984–87 engines 86833162.gif
    Fig. 3: Timing belt tension adjustment — 1984–87 engines 86833163.gif
    To install:
  6. Be sure to install the crankshaft pulley and the camshaft timing gear pulley in the top dead center position. Align the marks on the camshaft timing gear so they are parallel with the top of the cylinder head and the woodruff key is facing up. NOTE: When installing the timing belt, do not allow oil to come in contact with the belt. Oil will cause the rubber to swell. Be careful not to twist the belt unnecessarily or bend in a 90°angle, since it is made with fiberglass; nor should you use tools having sharp edges when installing or removing the belt. Be sure to install the belt with the arrow facing in the same direction it was facing during removal.
  7. After installing the belt, adjust the belt tension by first rotating the crankshaft counterclockwise 1/4 turn. Then, re-tighten the adjusting bolt and finally the tensioner pivot bolt.
  8. Replace the other components removed for belt access.
  9. Start the car, check timing and adjust if necessary WARNING
    Do not remove the adjusting or pivot bolts, only loosen them. When adjusting, do not use any force other than the adjuster spring. If the belt is too tight, it will result in a shortened belt life.

Where is the fuel filter in an 87 accord lx?


HI Honda offered this motor that year with either Fuel Injection or with a 2bbl Carburetor. If you have a fuel injected motor the filter is located in the engine compartment on the fire wall about in the middle of the car. If its has the carburetor then the filter will mounted under the car next to the gas tank on the drivers side.

Water Pump Location/Issues '87 Accord


Location: left-upper area of block, front

To replace water pump:
1) remove timing belt
2) remove thermostat housing and water pump inlet pipe
3) remove alternator bracket
4) remove water pump and O ring

Pump bushings could be going out if the technician is not properly setting belt tension.

Vibration could be either severe engine miss or, most likely, you should check all engine and transmission mounts for broken rubber.

Timing belt


Probably. Most all Honda engines are interference or zero tolerance engines, meaning there is no margin for valves when they are out of sequence, like when the timing belt goes. You will probably have to do the head, but get it checked out by an engine rebuilder to be sure before you start repairs.

Engine shaking bad


Sounds like they didn't get the balance shaft timed right. It's easy to get it together wrong. If the timing belt is right, it'll start right up, but if the balance shaft isn't syncronized as well, the thing will shake like an old washing machine! Better take it back to the shop. They lined up the balance shaft wrong, I'd bet money on it.
